Shift Happens

I urge all of you to go to this site : http://www.glumbert.com/media/shift
And then ask the question “So why does more 70 % of the world’s population still barely survive at starvation levels ?” Shekhar

    1. its high time that the society as a whole should consciously look into spiritual aspects of life…otherwise anarchy is not so far away…
    2. WOW…i loved the music…DUDE…it feels like watching the climax of some grand film where emotions reach the crescendo …settle and erupt again only to settle down and END titles roll…hehehe…
    i was imagining PAANI having this kind of emotion to its climax…where all the sub plots, main plots converge into one and erupts back only to settle down again…pls hear it again with full volume…amazing feel…round of emotions come and go…

    as you can noticed.. that video revolves around US and as always, they think everything is within 51states. World too big and diverse to predict of any such detail trends.
    but anyways, ‘shift happens’
    FWD — a worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: “Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”.
    The survey was a huge failure. Here’s why:
    In Africa, they didn’t know what “food” meant.
    In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant.
    In Western Europe they didn’t know what “shortage” meant.
    In China they didn’t know what “opinion” meant.
    In the Middle East they didn’t know what “solution” meant.
    In South America they didn’t know what “please” meant.
    And in the US, they didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant.

    Dear Shekhar
    I saw the clip. It is a compilation of some interesting facts. It’s amazing that even if I am one in a million, there are still 1100 more people in this country who are just as talented as me. That is the kind of talent we have. I’m assuming that the clip was made by an American, going by the tone of the clip. There are two aspects to this presentation. One, from the point of view of the North Americans and the other one from the POV of the people living in Chindia.
    The North Americans are scared that just the top 25 % people of China (28% if the country is India) have a higher IQ than all of North America put together. So an eventual power shift from the West to the East is imminent.
    And what does it show from the Indian POV? It shows how hard is life in this part of the world. People with even mediocre talents live a very lavish life in the West just because they have less population. If you are one in a million in the US, you will live the life of a superstar. But if you are an Indian, then being one in a million is not enough. You will have to be one in a million x 1100 to be successful.
    And that takes me to your other blog about following your passions. More in that thread………
    Cheers!

    Kedar, Now that I heard it again I also see what you are saying about the music and the crescendo. It sounds better if you not watching the presentation.
    Shekhar, it reminded me of one of the great scenes from Elizabeth, the western classical score by the “Melbourne Symphony Orchestra” just before Elizabeth comes to power, where you say in the commentary that the subtext is that life comes in one package – all inclusive.
    Thanks,
