Earth POV

A boy goes to school everyday (Really! what’s so strange about that). He lives with his family in a small village. In the village the main source of income for the villagers is farming. Nearby there is a city which has so many industries. Government wants to expand the industrial area into the village and that would mean occupying the villagers farming lands. For industrial expansion and for the needs of industries river water is important. The nearby river to the industrial area cuts through two states. The states went to court to settle their claim on the river water.

One of those states acts as the eastern border of our country. Another country with which our country shares border has civil unrest. Lot of people from other country enter our country through border to take refuge. Some legally, some illegally. The two countries belong to two groups of nations. They had a dispute over natural resources. The two groups have different economic and political ideologies. Both the groups are developed economically but left the environment to rot. Now what was an ice cap once became water, what was a water reserve once became land, what was a land once became desert.

One day a Meteorite has fallen in the desert. Scientists have observed and found that it is one of the meteorites of the natural satellite of our nearest planet. Recently a planet has been reclassified as dwarf planet with regard to the recent advancements of information of its mass and orbital motion. It is believed that the sun is formed when a giant cloud called nebula collapsed. Much of the mass concentrated at the centre formed into sun and other dust flattened and became planets and solar system. Sun is one of the 100 billion(estimated) stars in our milky way. There are around 200 billion galaxies in the observable Universe. Some speculate multiverses with in the same space-time continuum.

Earth to us is its people, natural resources, ecosphere, biodiversity and its sustainability. Earth to the Universe is that it is a just tiny speck in its entirety. As Carl Sagan puts “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
