We Are Tiny !

Taking too much pride on the fact that you are a human ? Bragging too much about the technological advancements of human beings? Sorry to say , you will change your attitude after reading this. To attack your sentiments let me start with how small your are in size…. If you have ever been at a beach , you must have lifted a fist full of sand. If I would have asked you then to count the number of sand grains contained in it, you would have gone mad. Now sit tightly on your chair and imagine the number of sand grains in all the beaches all around the world. Dude thats the approximate number of stars in the whole universe. Of all them our sun is one average sized star. Jupiter has a storm going on there which itself is so large that it can fit in 2 and 1/2 earth sized planets. So you are that insignificant person among 7 billion others living on a puny planet revolving around a star which is equivalent not even to one grain in that fist full of sand which you dont even bother to count. Next let me make you realise how small you are in terms of time…. In present times people are preparing for 2-4 years to crack a 3 hours exam. And yet many failing to get their desired results. It’s extremely humbling when you realise what Universe became within a second after Big Bang. Ever since it has evolved to take its present form after 13.7 billion years. In that lifetime just 4.59 billion years ago our solar system happened to form after recycling dust and gas remnants from death of some other star. And we are here just since few million years ago. And you are hear for only few decades. Well I wish you a long life. I meant no offense to your mortality. We are tiny beings living on thinnest layer of a small planet permitted a few dozens of revolutions around the local star. – Carl Sagan. So basically we are indeed small part of the nature. We are destroying nature and then crying for it. But the nature is laughing at all these. A shockwave and boom!! We are all gone. None to weep for us. None to be happy.

But wait !! Dont go taking negative energy. This huge universe that is laughing at how puny you are started its journey from a pin-head sized fireball. Yes you read it correct. Size of a pinhead. So…. You need to start to finish. And a start is always small. Anyone around you too noisy about their achievements ?? Share this with them to make them humble. Comment on how was your experience reading this. And for more such contents keep coming back. Thank you. Have a good day. Ayanabha De
