All of us would have heard of this famous saying: “If Plan A fails, try Plan B. If Plan B also fails, then you have plans till the alphabet Z”. While hearing today’s news about researchers trying to find the possibilities of life in other planets, I was thinking about my plans. We plan to lead our life in a particular way according to our interest. However, Life always surprises us in ways we would have not even imagined.
When it comes to talking about finding another planet to me, the very thought freaks me out. I don’t know how to respond to it. I have thought that our Planet (The Earth) is the only planet that supports life till now. I forgot to think what if we have a choice to move on to another planet. Assuming that with the current advancements in Science and Technology, Man has already landed on Moon. With more advancement, I guess mankind will soon find a way to travel to another planet. If this is the case, who will take care of our planet – The planet which gave us food to eat, clothes to wear, shelter to rest and much more than I can even remember. I guess we will be on the same page. Home is where the heart is. Nobody can change this fact.
I would like to end this blog post with the sayings of Former President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in European Union at 2007. He said “Where there is righteousness in the heart, there is beauty in the character. When there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, there is an order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, there is peace in the world”. Take care of our fragile planet because when it comes to home, we can never think about Plan B.
