The Price to Pay


We are in twenty first century. We have made unimaginable progress in every aspect of life, arts, science, technology. We have reached the moon, we have learned to fly. We have discovered so much about the earth and our lives.

But all this progress comes at a price. We have gone farther away from our origin. We tasted success and started running after it so much that we forgot what stopping for a moment feels like. We have forgotten the meaning of peace and quiet. And that has taken a toll on our mental and physical health.

Heart diseases are on the rise, so is depression. The price we paid for industrial and economic development is the toxic air we breathe. Our lungs are struggling to breathe in this hazardous air, our stomach is battling with the chemical ridden food and water.

Was it worth it to pay such a high price?
