How would I name this?

17 Dec

Here it goes again.

I was glued to an article in a magazine which shows the discovery and history of chocolate. It said that the chocolate making recipe was kept secret for almost hundred years. Somehow it got leaked and gave us away the best-selling sweet in the world. Well, this is not what we are gonna stress in here about. Let’s get to the point. What puzzled me the most is the feeling that how  people live a few hundred years ago. Let us take an instance, man lives for about 70 years on an average (much lesser, just a guess figure in here).  We are born somewhere, raised somewhere, live somewhere and make a life out of the planet. Of  the billions of humans and ever exponentially exploding population, few become immortal on our minds due to the parts they have played in shaping up the human world. But, while thinking what significance is one’s life in the long run, let’s say a hundred years. We eventually become history. Unless glorified and popular, our lives get diminished by the talks in next generation, ultimately becomes a damped oscillation (know what I mean? 😀 )  Well, the glorified people get arrested in biographies and books and of course  conspiracies and allegations.  I strongly believe that we influence a small part of people around us knowingly or unknowingly but I always believe what I have done is for their good.  Well, the best things in the past have been diminished and become the priced possessions to be excavated by archaeologists. The greatest masterpieces lay in rubble as time splashes mud over them and the fact the next generations forget to preserve the hard work done on that. A typical example is Cambodia’s Angkorwat, one of the largest temples in the world. If this is the case, and if nothing is preserved and priced by the forthcoming generations, how significant is our lives going to be ? Yet, I appreciate the work done on it so far. Summing up, if we have failed to preserve what our ancestors did, I do not think our life would be meaningful and we would become a damp memory in the forthcoming years.

    The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years… the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.
