Powerful is the fury of nature

The incessant rains lashing the city of Chennai and its suburbs has left the city paralyzed. And the rains do not seem to abate. With fresh rains predicted in the next 48 hours on the bay of Bengal owing to the formation of another depression one wonders if there is a bigger message hidden within natures fury.

Yesterdays  earthquake that measured 7.1 on the Richter scale off the Indian ocean only served to deepen the anxiety.

Some say it is the global warming and others say it is the el nino effect.
There are others who now claim they predicted this days months even centuries ago.

Who knows. The blueprint of how the universe will function has already been laid out and there is nothing human beings can do to change this.

It is in times like these that we realize how fragile a foundation our lives are built upon.

How much we are dependent on the certainty of a calm predictable ecosystem to cooperate with us to help us achieve our petty achievements and go about making a living.
