Of endings and new beginnings..

Every year we welcome the new year with hope that it will bring all good things to us. Some of us also take indulgence in new year resolutions for all the things we intend including in our lives for our betterment (or percieved betterment).Concurrently it is also the time to look back on the time gone by, a time for retrospection of the highlights of the past year/decade.The past decade can be credited with bringing the world much closer;wide accessibility of mobile phones,greater communication through networking sites, bridging the demand supply gap by proper sample matching through computers. Technology has truly penetrated our lives. Important decisions like marriages are also arranged through matrimonial sites not to mention the everyday decisions which also get a nod of approval after the 'internet research'.
Everything seems to be progressing. Mobile towers are the new symbols of progress of an area/district. The signals emitted by these towers help millions to streamline their everyday affairs. At the same time these towers also interrupt the navigation capability of the 'honey-bees' who innocently start their day to gather nector from flowers, little realising that the powerful signals from these towers will deprive them homecoming in the evening. Unable to navigate and wandering, the end to their tiring day of collecting nector results in their death.The population of honey-bees has dwindled in the last decade. It is only a matter of time when our coming generations will ask us the meaning of 'honey'.

Yes Ashwani, we the human beings have frogotten about the existence of other occupants of this planet in our chase for the development. Our future generations will see birds and bees and other animals only in movies as we see dianasores.

अंधाधुंध विकास की कीमत तो किसी न किसी को चुकानी ही पड़ेगी क्योंकि किए की कीमत तो चुकानी ही पड़ती है। चाहे यह कीमत हम चुकाएं या बची हुई हमारे बच्चे चुकाए । ये फैसला हमें करना है कि हमें क्या क्या चाहिए और उसकी क्या क्या कीमत हम देने को तैयार हैं?

Well, as you yourself say, this is the package that we get-of progress and its bane.
People are slowly realising that we need to share the space with sparrows, crows and honey bees.
