The Two Frogs

The Two Frogs

Two frogs were playing on a rainy day. Slowly, they hopped and hopped and came into a house. There was a churn of milk. Both the frogs fell into the churn.

Both the frogs tried for some time, but in vain. One of the frogs lost hope and said, “I can’t swim any more" and he drowned to the bottom. The other did not lose hope.

He kept on swimming. His movements churned the milk into butter. The frog climbed on to a pat of butter and hopped out of the churn.

God helps those who help themselves.

Remains of the world's earliest religious worship site have been discovered in Botswana, where our ancestors performed advanced rituals, worshipping the python some 70,000 years ago. So many religions have emerged and disappeared that no religion can claim superiority over other religions.

The central problem facing our planet is human overpopulation. Today there are over 7 billion beings on Earth and the population is still growing. There are too many people and not enough resources for all of us. Yet, we are not addressing this problem responsibly. Do you really think your life will be better if there are more people of your colour or your creed on Earth?

Initially used as fire for light, heat, cooking and for safety, energy has been harnessed by humans for millennia. Today, fossil fuels have become our main energy sources. This is leading to climate change and global warming.

The Earth has entered a new era called anthropocene, which marks the beginning of the sixth mass extinction. Many species have already disappeared from the planet and our days are numbered...
