Light up your Life

Deepavali means 'row of lights' is Sanskrit and also known simply as 'Festival of Lights' in all over the world. It signifies the triumph of good against evil based on the Hinduism belief. To be exact, Deepavali marks the return of Lord Raama to his kingdom Ayodhya after defeating Ravana - the ruler of Lanka in the epic story of Ramayana. It also celebrates the slaying of the demon king Narakasura by Lord Krishna. Both signifying the victory of good over evil (Cut and paste from Wikipedia about Diwali/Deepavali).

I had a great reunion with all that matters to my heart on Deepavali Day. The only thing that I regret was not having my camera with me to instill the memory of being together with the people I hardly see nowadays. I had no photos to show it here. Huhuhu...

Multiculturalism makes us a richer person if only we are willing to embrace the diversity that surrounds us. I honestly don't understand why some people are hesitant in exploring this gift that globalisation has given us to enjoy. The older this world gets, the more diverse we will be until one day all of us will not be able to recognise our true colour, race and origin. However, I would admit that one thing that might stay when you die is your religion. So choose your own belief and respect others’ belief as well.

Imagine mix marriages and migrations, what it would do to a person or a family’s origin and heritage? It will definitely create a whole new different generation. A person from mix parentage will have more than one claim to his/her inheritance. Say a Chinese married to an English. The children will have Chinese and English heritage and a whole new identity as a person. Then the Chinese-English person married to an Indian-French person. The children will have an even glorious cultural mix of Chinese-English-Indian-French. The world will be smaller than you think it is.

Thinking about it, human beings are made the same. In my belief, we are all children of Adam, the first man created by God which later disperses all over the world to become a family, a group, a race, a religion and so forth by the environment we live in. There’s no human being that is superior to the other. We are all made the same but what differentiates us is our mind set and for myself, I would add, the heart. It’s all in our mind and our heart. If you allow yourself to love, it will love, if you allow yourself to hate, it will hate.

Ever heard of these phrases, “think before you leap” and “you’re such a heartless person”. BRAIN makes you an intelligent person, but HEART makes you a humane person.

What I am trying to emphasise here is that we should get rid ourselves of racism and cultural biases. Light up the darkness so that we can see. Be a ONE WORLD… a world that embraces everyone.

Cheers!

Blog Action Day on Climate Change

I am called to update my blog for a cause. Today is Blog Action Day for all things related to Climate Change. So here I am catching up to update something on the subject so that I won't miss the dateline, i.e. 15th October 2009.

Climate Change or Global Warming is one of the subject I always have interest on. I wrote a few posting about it in the past. Here is one of the most recent one, about global warming. Being a nature person who loves adventure in the jungle and going up to the mountains whichever and whenever I choose and feel right to do so, I hate the fact that climate change will one day snatch away my passion. I don't want the situation of global warming to get worsen. I am very much concern that in the near future, our next generation will not be able to experience the same things that we all enjoy now. For example lots of animals and plants will go to extinction. May be in the tropical climate like in Malaysia, we don't really feel it because it's all-year round sunshine and rain.

May be the understanding of climate change is easier be understood with the example of the ice caps of North and South Pole. The ice that aged millions of years is now melting away which increases the sea level. This then affects the Polar Bear living in the Arctic which habitat needs the ice-cold condition to sustain its living. There you go the simplest explanation to all that doesn't know what is global warming.

As for Malaysian scenario, how global warming impacts us? The most obvious condition will be the uncomfortable living in extreme hot weather or extreme wet weather. Even recently we've already seen, unexpected heavy rain which causes landslides and flooding. Then the unexpected hot temperature which kills the crops and burns the forest. We had to be living in an uncomfortable condition of haze which causes other illnesses.... Global warming will have chain reaction to all on this Planet.

We might think that its nearing THE END OF THE WORLD. Very scary....huhuhu.
