Globe All Warming

This is year has been more awkward in terms of the weather. The Jan-Feb is the period when the cold bites us madly. But the January-February time seems somewhat milder this year. There have been climate changes in Asia too, with all the droughts and floods plus low degrees of temperature. A whole bunch of floods, earth-quacks, storms, snowstorm and fires happening almost every part of the world now.  I guess, in a decade time, the temperature of the earth and its parts will be pretty messed up. With greater extremes of all types of weather.

I was walking along a riverside, after a meal at a restaurant there and it was too cold for that time of the day. I saw a swan swimming slowly, and I wondered how cold it would be for that little bird to be in the water that I guess would have been freezing in minus. And someone said,
well, it is not anyone's fault, God has created this weather and God has created this bird to live in this cold. It is natural and there is nothing to worry about because this is how the nature is designed to be like and that the bird might be even comfortable there.

NO! I mean, I couldn't agree with this because this is not how the world was created to be. We humans, pollute the entire world with all the fumes and invisible chemicals that we produce as byproducts of many artificial. We can wear coats made with the fur from the animals and can create everything that protect us from the rain, cold, heat, and snow but but...the poor animals have to suffer the consequences of the whole mess-up. What is left in this world that was default?

I have read somewhere that even if the green house gas emissions are somehow completely stopped, the global warming will still happen -that the earth will still likely to be warmer as the levels of the emitted green-house gases have reached enough to cause the effect for thousands of years. The world has come a long way but at present, the human activities have caused far too many damages to the living (From the use of deodorants to space-science), there are health threats caused by the pollution. Smoking is the act that I have ever considered the most selfish thing in the world. Why do you smoke? Aren't you polluting yourself straight away into your lungs as well as the people standing around you. Plus the environment. I shall not go into smoking because that will really not end this post today.

At the end of the day, this would just be a rant about the world and the changes, and I can't help myself from being a user of all those pollution causing products in this century as everyone or else I simply have to be a millionaire or more richer than that to use low-emission technologies, which are far too expensive to think about. Except say diesel cars. Every minute the technology advances, the life-expectancy of the earth is being reduced by every minute unit -which I don't know what.

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …
