Trying to scribble here after long time. This time my excuse is more work in office, travel and a test. So many things happening and so little time to write.
After all the global warming signs, like the droughts around the world, inadequate rains, irregular weather, higher temperature, world is starting to get scary. I dont know how many of us are concerned but this is a real thing to worry about and sadly I am not sure if we can indeed so something or is it just too late. Parts of east coast which were lush green are not total brown and some of the normally filled lakes are scary dry.
And there is a news of firestorm in California. Unbelievable that tens of thousands of acres of land would just get burned down with little chance of being put down. With daily talks of technological advance in world, it is sad that we cannot even put down the fire that is engulfing thousands of dream homes - even after three days.
I was watching the news with people being forced to leave the homes grabbing whatever it takes. That made me think and I was wondering if I was in that situation, what would I try to salvage the most. Everything in house is precious and there is only little we can afford to carry with us. How much are we ready mentally and physically?!
p.s. Last past weekends, I had a chance to attend the garba dance festival. Have to say, garbas in USA are far better than the ones in India, Mumbai in particular. What I really liked was that here they had real garba songs and crowd was well behaved and well dressed. Compare this to hindi songs played at most of the garba venues in Mumbai. I enjoyed garbas in Mumbai too but here in USA they are far more traditional. Atleast until now.
