Why you shouldn’t buy an RO Water Purifier

Indians are a fascinating people. Nowhere else in the world have I come across sheep mentality to such a greater degree except in my native country. I remember reading the popular book by Thomas Hardy, ‘Far from the maddening crowd’ as a child. I was too young to comprehend it fully back then but now as I am wiser, I do realise that Farmer Oak would have saved his herd if he had known about sheep mentality. The Indian philosophy40

Beef

How Our Choice Of Beef Is Destroying The Amazon

Beef is one of the most popular food sources, enjoyed in many countries throughout the globe. Yet this desire for meat is having a large, negative impact in one specific area: the Amazon rainforest. In short, beef has to come from somewhere and a continued demand for beef has lead to deforestation in the Amazon jungle. Of course, the real answer is much more complicated and there are many factors that we need to consider, including our own demand and40

The State of Nature by Laolu Ibrahim

Now that it’s been almost seven years, I can sufficiently say, I didn’t like Avatar much. To give a bit of context, I’m a film buff and looking back, I was probably more caught up in the experience of it all rather than in the movie itself. Avatar was Meh! It’s the kind of movie you look back at and say, yeah, I saw that. But, it is funny how certain parts and not the whole of things leave an40

Hope of the Earth

They say that if you travel far enough, you will meet yourself. The earth is our cradle; it gives us the peace, space, and beauty to become whole, and is large enough to travel as far as we need until we meet our old selves again. I Share Hope is a podcast that shares true and inspirational stories of hope – stories of people overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, stories of forgiveness, and stories of kindness and generosity.

Green Economy

Human Capital And Economy- An Exploratory Thought

The prevailing economic model does not take into account the social capital or human capital as one of its inputs. It is purely a function of the monetized natural resources. Although it considers the human capital but it is only limited to time equivalent and monetizing the same. An ideal economic model should account for each and every input. It should respond to the changes in human capital. It should be sensitive to all such capitals which can neither be40

The Earth

An Outcry for Nature!

Seriously, climate change is not a myth. And it has been proven time and again! I suddenly remember the law of entropy which says every thermodynamic activity increases the entropy of the universe! In the same line, what we do causes an imbalance in nature. Predominantly, economic development and associated global competition to achieve the same have led us to such a catastrophe. Most often, economic development is the usual target to be painted as the main culprit. Since the40

What We Can Learn From the Flint River Crisis

As of Jan 16, Flint, Michigan, is in a national state of emergency due to contaminated water. The problem is that it’s only now happened. The government, in many ways, failed the citizens of Flint. Their water has been contaminated, their requests for assistance were largely ignored and, to add salt to the wound, the local government continues doling out water bills. If you look at the water in Flint, you can tell it’s dirty. It comes out of the40
