Where most wars occur in Earth???

This might sound different but it is clearly determined that most wars on earth occur in rich biological regions. The study by leading international conservation scientists compared major conflict zones with the Earth’s 34 biodiversity hotspots identified by Conservation International . The hotspots are considered top conservation priorities because they contain the entire populations of more than half of all plant species and at least 42 percent of all vertebrates, and are highly threatened.

The richest storehouses of life on Earth are also the regions of the most human conflict and it tells us that these areas are essential for both biodiversity conservation and human well-being. Millions of the world’s poorest people live in hotspots and depend on healthy ecosystems for their survival, so there is a moral obligation in the form of political and social responsibility to protect these places and all the resources and services they provide.

The study found that more than 90 percent of major armed conflicts defined as those resulting in more than 1,000 deaths occurred in countries that contain one of the 34 biodiversity hotspots, while 81 percent took place within specific hotspots.

The consequences extend far beyond the actual fighting. War preparations and lingering post-conflict activities also have important implications for biodiversity hotspots and the people who live there.The fact that so many conflicts have occurred in areas of high biodiversity loss and natural resource degradation warrants much further investigation as to the underlying causes, and strongly highlights the importance of these areas for global security.

In total, the hotspots are home to a majority of the world’s 1.2 billion poorest people who rely on the resources and services provided by natural ecosystems for their daily survival. Environmental concerns tend to recede or collapse in times of social disruption, and conservation activities often get suspended during active conflicts.

The study concluded that international conservation groups and indeed the broader international community must develop and maintain programs in war-torn regions if they are to be effective in conserving global biodiversity and keeping ecosystems healthy. It also called for integrating conservation strategies and principles into military, reconstruction and humanitarian programs in the world’s conflict zones.

My Favourite Pilgrimage Spot!!!

According to me Pilgrimage is a journey in search of moral significance. A journey to a place that can offer you peace. I would like to share one of the great pilgrimage spot that i love the most..

shivling

The Shivling mountain is a sacred symbol of the Hindu god, Shiva, literally means ‘The Phallus of Shiva‘. It is a sacred place of significance to a person’s belief. Considered one of the most stunning peaks of the Garhwal region, the mountain soars 21,329 feet high. The Tapovan meadow which lies between Shivling and Gaumukh has become a popular pilgrimage site due to the stunning view of the mountain from that location.

Incredible Italy!!!

Italy, the Italian Republic is situated on the Italian peninsula in the Southern part of Europe. Italy shares its northern alpine boundary with France, Switzerland and Austria. Italy has been the home of many European cultures such as Estruscan and the Romans.

Today, Italy is a democratic republic and a developed country with 8th largest Quality-of-life index rating in the world. Here are some cool pics of INCREDIBLE ITALY!!!Italy

Excavations throughout Italy reveal a modern human presence dating back to the Palaeolithic period, some 200,000 years ago.In the 8th and 7th centuries BC Greek colonies were established all along the coast of Sicily and the southern part of the Italian Peninsula. Subsequently, Romans referred to this area as Magna Graecia, as it was so densely inhabited by Greeks.Ancient Rome was at first a small agricultural community founded circa the 8th century BC that grew over the course of the centuries into a colossal empire encompassing the whole Mediterranean Sea, in which Ancient Greek and Roman cultures merged into one civilization.

This civilization was so influential that parts of it survive in modern law, administration, philosophy and arts, forming the ground that Western civilization is based upon. In its twelve-century existence, it transformed itself from republic to monarchy and finally to autocracy.

In steady decline since the 2nd century AD, the empire finally broke into two parts in 285 AD: the Western Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire in the East. The western part under the pressure of Goths finally dissolved, leaving the Italian peninsula divided into small independent kingdoms and feuding city states for the next 14 centuries, and leaving the eastern part sole heir to the Roman legacy.

Twin planets?

VENUS is the second-closest planet to the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days. The planet is named after Venus, the Roman goddess of love. It is the brightest natural object in the night sky, except for the Moon, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6.

Because Venus is an inferior planet from Earth, it never appears to venture far from the Sun: its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°. Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it is often called the Morning Star or the Evening Star.


It is a terrestrial planet, it is sometimes called Earth’s “sister planet,” because they are similar in size, gravity, and bulk composition. Venus is covered with an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulfuric acid, preventing its surface from being seen from space in visible light; this was a subject of great speculation until some of its secrets were revealed by planetary science in the twentieth century.

Venus has the densest atmosphere of all the terrestrial planets, consisting mostly of carbon dioxide, as it has no carbon cycle to lock carbon back into rocks and surface features, nor organic life to absorb it in biomass.

Suicide–> Violation of God’s Law!!!

While the souls of people who died naturally experience relief and happiness, suicide victims, quite to the contrary, experience confusion and torment. A specialist in the field of suicide summed up the fact very well: “If you leave life with a restless soul, then you will arrive into the other world with a restless soul.” Suicide victims commit suicide to “end it all,” but, as it happens, it is only their beginning in the other world. Here are a few contemporary accounts that illustrate the otherworldly state of suicide victims.

One man, who loved his wife dearly, killed himself when she died. He hoped to reunite with her for eternity, but things turned out quite differently. When the doctor revived him, he said: “I was in a place quite different from where she was… It was a dreadful place… and immediately I realized that I had made a huge mistake”

Some revived suicide victims described arriving in a kind of prison or dungeon and they felt that they would have to remain there for a very long time. They recognized that this was their punishment for violating the established law, which requires that each person must suffer his share of sorrows. Having willfully thrown off the burdens placed upon them, they must carry even more in the world to come.

Another man, who survived death, tells the following: “When I arrived there, I understood that two things are absolutely forbidden — to kill oneself or to kill others. If I had decided to kill myself it would have meant throwing into the Face of God the gift he had bestowed upon me. To kill someone is to disrupt God’s plan for that person”.

Life After Death???

Reincarnation is in my opinion an overly simplified concept, designed to be easily understood and accepted by the general population. But the theory of reincarnation falls down sharply when closely examined. That is, if you understand how standard linear time sense behaves in higher dimensional levels, i.e., time sense fluctuates.
As far as it goes, the theory of reincarnation is clear enough to explain some very complex esoteric matters in a simple way; without giving people headaches whenever they think about it. It also allows for the illusion of the continuation of present consciousness, unchanged and progressive, with only an occasional memory loss to mar its course; marking the division between each Re–Incarnation. This makes it easy for people to accept the bones of the incarnation process.
It gives them the benefit of a rational afterlife belief-system containing the simplified essence of the whole truth. This allows a measure of independence and security, and a reassurance of the continuance of self, i.e., life after death and reincarnation is a kind of immortality theory that people can easily accept.

Is 21.12.2012 End???

I read an article about “Mayan Calendar”… I would like to share it with you all my friends!!!

According to Mayan Prophecy 21.12.2012 is a time of transition from one World Age to another…. Is it so??? Let’s go in Depth..

The message as per “Mayan Prophecy” says the changes may happen on the choice as how enter our future ahead. Our moving through with either Resistance or Acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with Cataclysmic changes or Gradual peace and tranquility. It further says that we are living at the end of Galactic day. One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years. The great cycle of Mayan count calendar ends on 2012A.D. We are almost at the end of fifth cycle and this is as much about beginnings as endings..

So friends tell me what you all think about it… Is it a fact based on some Logic… I feel that “Calendars can only say but can’t make it happen. Verdict in God’s hands”

What’s Life???


Friends!!! Yesterday night when i was about to sleep i had a query in mind –> what we mean by life??? why should we live it??? How can we define life??? It took almost 3 hours to come up with a definition for that. I wondered i’m living for 21 years but still i am not able to define it instantly.

L –> Love, Luck

I –> Intelligence, Interest

F –> Friendship, Fun

E –> Excellence, Entertainment

Life is just a chance to grow a soul.

Life on the planet is born of woman.

People living deeply have no fear of death.

The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.

Our lives are like a candle in the wind.

A good life is a main argument.

Why God Created EVE???

10. God worried that Adam would always be lost in the garden because he knew men would never ask directions.

9. God knew that Adam would one day need someone to hand him the TV remote because men don’t want to see what’s on television, they want to see what else is on television.

8. God knew that Adam would never buy a new fig leaf when the seat wore out and therefore would need Eve to get one for him.

7. God knew that Adam would never make a doctors appointment for himself.

6. God knew that Adam would never remember which night was garbage night.

5. God knew that if the world was to be populated there would have to be someone to bear children, because men would never be able to handle it.

4. As “Keeper of the Garden” Adam would never remember where he put his tools.

3. The scripture account of creation indicates that Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.

2. As the Bible says, “It is not good for man to be alone.” He only ends up getting himself in trouble.

AND the #1 REASON WHY GOD CREATED EVE is …

1. When God had finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched his head and said, “I know I can do better than THIS!!”
