The Genesis

A look into the future, and the frames that unfold in the sight are those of endless miseries to the mankind - desertification of agricultural lands, fast extinction of several species of flora and fauna, drying groundwater sources, disappearing rivers, depleting coal mines, drying oil wells, felled forests, melting snow mountains………

Even rain forests are catching fire, sea levels are on the rise, inhabitable land area is steadily shrinking; population is ever on the increase; global temperature levels are rising; sandstorms, cyclones and floods recur more often; drinking water is becoming dearer by the day and expanding holes in the ozone layer are making exposure to sunrays evermore dangerous………

Do we need more proof for the inevitability of the gloom we are fast approaching? We are at crossroads now. Can we reverse these trends now? Unfortunately, NO. Extinction is forever and damages are irreversible.

The best we can do is to arrest the pace and make this earth livable for a few extra thousand years. Supercomputers and biotechnology can do little to help us, unless we help ourselves. The humaneness lost in the process of human-centered thoughts and actions will have to be regained in a nature-centered effort by the humanity, if we are to sustain this environment for our future generations.

It is this realization, thrown out during a casual evening chat amongst a few technocrats, environmentalists and businessmen from different parts of the world, which gave birth to an entity that has since strived for a greener tomorrow.
