We are Homo Sapiens - the Wisdom Crown of Creation

But we re-invented ourselves;

Interpreting Wisdom as Smart - Smarter than our creator;

So, we learn our lessons … and, then, we forget … we ever forget!


The “Deluge”, typhoons, bush fires!

Cyclones, hurricanes, earthquakes!

We weather them all … and, then … We forget … we ever forget!


Pre-modern Sages warn usAhimsa, Brahmacharya, Satyagraha, Swadeshi

We listen … and, then … We forget … we ever forget!


For we chase dreamsDevelopment, First-World Status, the Moon …

And must plunder all that stands in the way … be it nature or humans …


WE ARE SMART, wielding weapons and technology …

SMARTER THAN OUR CREATOR!

Our concrete jungles, Sky-scraping apartments,

Bullet trains, rocket-speed jets, supersonic aircrafts, nuclear stealth …


‘United Nations’ Wisdom confronts us

Climate Change, Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement!

Carbon Footprints, COPs 1- 25, MDGs … Sustainable Development by 2030!


But by “roll call” time, we have opted out … these tough options prevent pursuit of our dreams! And, so … We forget … we ever forget!


Post-modern Saints and Prophets call us:

Laudato Si … Ecological Metanoia … Global Inequality …


This year 2020 … 50th Anniversay of World Earth Day and

5th Anniversary of Laudato Si …with the theme: Everything is Connected


Before we could forget again …

Overnight …

We are stopped in our tracks by a micro sequence of genetic material -

Coronavirus !!


We quickly learned a new vocabulary …


LOCKDOWN, Hand- washing, Masks, Social &Physical Distancing …

YES, we are SMART … we side-stepped into Digital Presence …

The Internet, Zoom calls, higher speeds, 5G …

Increasing Carbon Footprints by virtual routes…


Will we remember this time round at last?

Or will we need a more piercing reminder from Mother Earth?
