Modern Civilization: It is destroying itself and the world leaders are blinking!




There is a follow up report on this building collapse in Dockyard Road, Mumai on 27 September 2013, in the media today the 25th September 2014. My response: This is typical of a country not yet fit to govern democratically. This is evident from the past fifty years as graphically brought out in the Marathi classic Jhadajhadati by Vishwas Patil(1992). As if to emphasise the ground reality Keerti Ramachandra brought out the English translation A Dirge for the Dammed , 2014, hachetteindia depicting the unchanged state of affairs through the trauma of displaced families. Meanwhile events have overtaken this mess created by modern civilization. The world's dams are creating huge and severe surges of water pressure head changes every instant at their centre of gravity in tune with the sum total of instantaneous demands on the dam contents by man's greedy needs of water. These are repeatedly resulting in gigantic waves similar to Love and Raleigh waves typical of what is ascribed to earthquake triggering by plate tectonics. These are attacking the very structures of modern civilization as witnessed here resulting in instantaneous tragedies. See Collaterals of Climate Change by googling.Watch out, the antibiotic fed chicken will come home to roost. Heed the Gita: There is true knowledge, learn thou it is this: To see one changeless life in all the lives, in the separate, the one Inseparable. To get an idea of the surge that hit the building on that fateful day calculation by me shows the twisting moment on the foundation by the world dam content change of 203 BCM was equivalent to a great earthquake's magnitude of 8.5 MM(See Table).

Unchanged over the years, the MOEF is complicit in ignoring this suicidal aspect of the glaring lacuna of modern civilization in meeting our water needs. What are MOEF's comments?
