Yesterday I went to this place called Alexander. It’s in a way to the furthest of South Asia – the land ends there and the great river Meghna starts – making her way to the Bay of Bengal.
There I with my friends witnessed just how deadly river erosion can be. There is no certainty of tomorrow. Anytime, all of your belongings can be taken away from you without warning. Later, we came back and I sat at my desk, and watched a breakthrough scientific event – SpaceX in collaboration with NASA launched its robotic spacecraft.
I appreciate Elon Musk and co. On the other side, the sheer contrast of the two events gripped me. What kind of weird world do we live in? In one part of the world we are unable save our earth and soil, and in other parts we are conquering great space. Why within humanity as one progress is so discretely distributed?
