Combining Ecology And Economy Will Ensure Human Survival
Now there is no month of the year in which there is no suffering from some natural calamity. Recently heavy rains in some of the states of India - Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, etc. happened which were not normal. Water fell continuously for 32 hours and a red alert situation was announced. The system of deep depression of stormwater is now wreaking havoc in Pakistan. More than 1100 people have died there. The devastation caused by flash floods in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh indicates that all is not well. If we leave out the monsoon too, then the scorching heat is disturbing the whole system, where on one side the fire is consuming the forests and on the other hand heat waves are causing frequent health problems. The time has come for us to reconnect with disasters and our needs, as we have not shown much seriousness in such incidents.
I agree we have created such departments in our country, which provide assistance and protection in times of disasters, but the biggest need is that we study disasters and work at certain levels so that we can reduce their impact.
One department should focus on how to minimalize the harmful effects of such disasters.
Secondly, what to do when surprise disasters happen.
Lastly Pre-Awareness campaigns on how to act in such situations.
Now see, whether it is North India or South, its states were prone to disasters in one form or the other this year which is very unusual as some places have had a normal climate for the last few decades. But now, For the past two decades, continuous excessive rainfall has been a big problem in North India, for example, the state of Assam got a more severe flood this time and was the first Asian region to get half submerged in the flood I think in this Monsoon. And what do the floods of South Indian states Kerala and Tamil Nadu indicate during the winter?
The Only Reason
This is because we have completely destabilized the entire ecosystem and behind this is our incomplete understanding of development. Today it becomes very necessary for us to understand our system and decide the style of our development. India is doing great in the development sector but worst in the Ecology sector. There's no counter plan in big construction projects like building dams, roads, highways, etc to nullify the damage they do by cutting trees, land and mountains. Recently, I read in a newspaper that most of the highway and ring road projects built in my state, were only passed and made on the word of planting 1000-10000 trees but in later 5 years of work done investigation came out and it's just in papers they haven't planted anything.
And as a counter-speech, the people involved in that construction are saying they paid all the trees' price to Forest Department and it was their duty to plant them, lol. Enter selfish politics and business.
This may be the case for most of the developing countries where in terms of technology and economy they are improving at a great pace but in terms of Ecology, they are decreasing it at the same rate of growth in the economy.
It is time that we prepare a blueprint for the future by connecting the economy and ecology together. It is also important to know which is the most important ecosystem in the world. Trees and fertile land are must to balance the ecosystem.
Humans can't live by making only big futuristic buildings which many of you have seen in Sci-Fi movies. We are freaking endangering one species of an animal once or twice a year. Humans can never maintain Ecology alone no matter how much they evolve. Every other species is required to maintain the balance of life.
But the actions which we are taking in the name of development are killing them and their places slowly. I saw a video of a Indian southern state today a tree filled with hundreds of birds and nests along with baby birds was cut live when they were on the tree. The humans didn't bothered to at least something to save the young ones. And with a big bang on the road 50% of the birds died at the spot because they didn't wanted to leave their child and eggs alone.
This could have done in a more planned way in which the birds would have effected minimal but as humans we only think about ourselves. The video is very disturbing so I'm not sharing.

If we don't combine Economy and Ecology soon these natural disasters will occur frequently to the point of taking humans and animals with them.
Support the natural environmentalists, follow them and sign their petitions against such projects sometimes we are able to save the nature sometimes not but it's better than nothing.
Everything in this world is interconnected and thus it is called an ecosystem. The loss of one species may seem as nothing but it affects us in great multitude. We must indeed make conscious effort to take care of each other and the world we live in.
