How I will Rebuild the World

Rebuilding the World is certainly not a simple task. It is not like erasing the sand art canvas with a brush of the hand...

Rather remaking the world is a far more complex and an onerous task, given that so much hatred, anger and non-violence has already deeply penetrated it. Simultaneously, pollution is choking people and biodiversity to death, while man's greed, carelessness and climate change is causing disaster after sinister disaster. Today, values have evaporated while killing one another in the name of God is an accepted norm. Today, brother is the enemy of his own brother while daughter is killed by her own parents. Today, lies, corruption and deception rule, while the honest, the good, the pious suffer.

Shri Krishna in Shrimad Bhagwad Gita has said-

"यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥४-७॥

परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥"

This means that- "Whenever and wherever there is decline of Dharma, O Bharata's descendant, and a predominant rise of irreligion- at that time I Myself descend. To save the good people, to destroy the evil ones, to re-establish Dharma, I come in epoch after epoch."

Today, thankfully, the Herculean task of rebuilding the world has fallen into my responsible hands. In the 21st Century, even The Lord is not unaware of Outsourcing! Before the Lord Himself arrives in this Age, He has adopted Outsourcing of this very difficult task. So, I am lucky to be the Chosen One- the Re-Creator now!  And the unabashed Preserver of anything that still remains good in the world today.

I will thus remake the world and achieve all that I have ever wanted, for our world!

  1. Stop Climate Change and Pollution- While I make the excess carbon dioxide and poisonous gases disappear from the atmosphere, I will get the huge chunks of ice breaking off our Arctic and Antarctic circles to join back the ice sheets. Simultaneously, I will leave a message in the hands of surprised scientists and world leaders to immediately stop burning fossil fuels indiscriminately and sincerely use alternate energy sources while also helping the developing and less developed countries to adapt to such clean sources. Else, I would warn- even the fossil fuels would magically disappear within a moment with my nod- plunging the world into darkness.
  2. Remove all evil thoughts- This would inevitably lead to the Return to Satya Yuga with all the scientific and technological progress of today- an ideal situation! Satya Yuga was the golden era of truth and equality, when the rules of the world were not written unfairly by men against women and when women and men were equal in every sense of the word. In many ways women even superseded men in knowledge, valour and participation in society's meetings and progress. There would again be no caste system, no heinous practice of untouchability or lusting after material possessions. There would be only trust, truth and pure love.


    Needless to say, this will also eradicate terrorism and communalism from the face of the world. That means every person who has vandalised a temple, church, mosque, woman, child or killed innocents will turn a new leaf along with every ISIS terrorist, Al Shabab, Boko Haram, Taliban member- indeed every terrorist from every faith and nation will now start helping others and working productively to re-build the world to make it better, as sudden realisation will gush through the veins of every human. Generosity and humanity will thus rule. People will swear to live in peace on the Heaven, that is, Earth, cleansed of all evil forces and thoughts. All disputes among countries will end. Harmony, love towards Nature and sharing of resources to uplift every human equally and to eliminate poverty will indeed make Earth a Heaven.
  3. Demolish slums and build low cost, green homes in a jiffy- As an example, I will demolish Mumbai's Dharavi- Asia's largest slum- and in its place, green homes will stand for the occupants, with all necessary amenities built perfectly. Renewable power, water recycling and harvesting system, connecting roads and green spaces will make this the most beautiful and self-sufficient, sustainable model to be emulated around the world.
  4. Create crops which have all the nutrition, grows with minimal water and inputs yet gives highest yields- I will help the world to overcome nutrition issues. True that tackling climate change will lead to better yields, but still the good results would take time to kick in. Meanwhile, to support ever-burgeoning population, I have to show the light to the world on growing most low-cost, yet most nutritious food.
  5. Solving water woes- I will fill every well, reservoir, pond, lake, glacier and river with water, and remove all the water pollution. But henceforth, if anyone polluted or wasted water, I will warn that the sources would dry up very fast in front of their eyes and people and animals would die indiscriminately of drought. Simultaneously, I will enlighten the world on how every house must harvest its own water and every city/town should have its own water treatment plants.
  6. Administration- I will retain the administrative systems of the world. Yet, with good thoughts pervading all, I would give special powers of extra-goodness and dynamism to all the administrators and leaders of the world, so that they would carry the world successfully on their shoulders. They would ensure happiness for every denizen across the world by providing all necessary services like education, health, sanitation, water, nutrition, cleanliness, connectivity (physical and digital) and so on.
Thus, by adopting a policy such that God's entry into the world would be indefinitely delayed, I would consider the task accomplished, as His Chosen One! My aim would be to 'Teach a man to fish' rather than just 'catching fish and giving to men'. So, for example, though I have in principle power to change everything about the world, I would not do so. Rather, by changing men's minds at a fundamental level, I would ensure millions of hands and minds building an equitable and sustainable world, which would give far more contentment to the people and God Himself. For instance, seeing the shining rejuvenated Dharavi, people would be energised to emulate such perfect systems everywhere. The world remade should be one where more sustainable and inclusive living is achieved by participation of all people and nations together.

Having said thus, I also however plan to subtly use 'Maayaa' or illusion to pull back the people who by any chance would generate even the slightest evil thought in their minds. So, for instance, the one polluting the river would alone see the river drying up and will get no water, while the good people will continue reaping the fruits of Heaven. Similarly the large developed country not sincere in helping poorer countries adapt to carbon-neutral mechanisms, will itself face the brunt of climate change while others will not.

In this way, the world will always be brought back into the right path at the right time, before any serious ecological imbalance sets in, thereby creating conditions for sustained healthy living. The world through this process will be remade with time by the well-intentioned, generous people themselves. I will only pull a few strings here and there, and only when convinced that 'All is Well', will report back to God and say "Here's the World, Remade!"

  1. The problem with fighting climate change is that you can find a guy on the floor of the US Senate who denies it's happening because it's snowing, in FEBRUARY, in Washington, DC.
