We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.

The HOME - An aerial visualization

The HOME -

The theory of selfish gene by Prof. Richard Dawkins suggests that each individual at its core (gene) is selfish and most of the behavior of individuals is a result of such selfish activities. Individualism vs socialism. Capitalism vs Socialism. These are different philosophies. However, if one goes broader and broader in ones vision, the vision grows with me, family, state, country, world, Earth, Solar System, Universe .....

The Home is a unique vision of how humanity in its crux has been able to term mother Earth as its home. Its a story of human evolution on Earth and how in a single generation of last 50 years, the Earth has been drastically transformed like never before. So much that it threatens the existence of future generations.

Here is an excerpt .....

Internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand makes his feature directorial debut with this environmentally conscious documentary produced by Luc Besson, and narrated by Glenn Close. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective. As such, we are afforded the unique opportunity to witness our changing environment from an entirely new vantage point. In our 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has hopelessly upset Mother Nature's delicate balance. Some experts claim that we have less than ten years to change our patterns of consumption and reverse the trend before the damage is irreversible. Produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate, Home poses the prospect that unless we act quickly, we risk losing the only home we may ever have.
