It is the divine truth that one day our earth will be destroyed and all life on it will be finished. Some people call it apocalypse while other name it as The Judgement Day. One way or another there will be a reason whether it might be shortage of food or a plague or a deadly tsunami that will ultimately be the cause of human extension on this planet.

The three basic necessities of human beings on earth are food, water and shelter. Till we will be able to provide these three necessities to our people, growing world population won’t be a problem. But as soon the demand starts to exceed the supply, according to the rule of economics problems will automatically be created. Significant increases in human population occur whenever the birth rate exceeds the death rate for extended periods of time. The main cause of continued rise in world population is due to the development in medical science. As life expectancy is increased, more lives come into this world every day than the souls that are departed.

Today the biggest problem that humanity is facing is the division of resources. The rich is becoming richer while the poor is being oppressed and becoming poorer day by day. If we consider this in the terms of these three basic necessities, we can understand the situation in a better way. Healthy food, clean water and a good place to live is the right of every citizen of this world. It is the difference in quality of these three things that define the problem in division of resources. It is the responsibility of world leaders to ponder upon this situation and realize that not every animal can climb the tree. The tax reforms must be introduced charging rich with more taxes and exempting the poorest of classes from it. We must realize that if steps will not be taken to rectify the situation, the nightmare will turn into reality and one day the deprived souls will march towards the castles to snatch their rights.
