Mother Nature can still thrive back



We started as warriors in the field of science. Struggling, striving, inventing and discovering. We opened new arenas of perspective and existence, exploring new vistas of creativity and innovation. The entire universe was at the disposal of humans. We began to flow at the top of the sky, dive till the unfathomable depths of oceans and cut across the crust of the Earth to discover the treasures it had hidden inside. Natural objects were altered to serve our ends. Waterfalls turned into hydro power projects, Earth into geothermal technology, Sunlight into solar power and natural elements like uranium into nuclear energy.

Even nature would have marvelled at the intelligence and diversity with which we tapped its resources to our benefits and developments. We crossed limits after limits and proved our ability to develop and prosper without looking back. But in the midst of moving ahead and never looking back, we completely forgot that one constant due to which we were able to succeed in the first place- Nature.

We betrayed Mother Nature till the utmost extent of inhumanity.After taking all that we could and all that it had, we deserted it without repairing the damage that we had done to it. We dug through its surface to steal oil and gas from its deepest cores,spilt oil and poisonous chemicals in its oceans as we sailed across their vast expanse to far off lands, churned out toxic gases into atmosphere and breached the sanctity of its air. But just like a Mother, it continued to serve us and fulfill our needs regardless of how we treated it.

But everything has its limits. Even nature!! After all that we have taken for granted, the Nature is now damaged beyond repair. There was a time when it glowed with green. But today, it bleeds red. It is choking, wheezing, panting and trying to survive through all the cruelties we have hurled upon it.

Pollution is raging with great fury, corroding the purity of our Earth. Global warming continues to melt away the once magnificent glaciers and ice bergs. Ozone has got depleted beyond the extent of repair. Several animals and plants are suffering because of the pernicious UV rays penetrating across the premises of our atmosphere. Species are getting extinct day by day. The Earth that once blossomed with biodiversity today looks back at the lost species with longing.

There is no doubt that man has excelled beyond the imagination of his ancestors but on the other hand, the loss that he has incurred to his nature is also unimaginable.

Although several steps have been taken by us to counter the environmental crimes that we have committed but still not enough is being done. Treaties signed by numerous nations remain mere theoretic confessions of their mistakes, nothing tangible in order to practically do something against the predicament. In fact, several states repented from their commitment and rendered those states ineffective under the ambit of that treaty. Even at an individual level, we have turned our backs towards our nature. Dumping household waste on roadsides, burning garbage, cutting trees and doing irrepairable damage.

However, our Mother Nature can still thrive back into life if we truly aim to compensate for all the mistakes that we have committed and take tangible as well as effective measures to ensure rehabilitation of Nature. It is high time that we get on the battlefield and really do something because our Mother, after giving us sustenance for ages to her self-centered children, now direly needs them!!!

Its purpose is to stimulate and motivate all those who create and produce a value that will result in more pleasant living conditions. On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the BK Company, the Karic family and the Karic Foundation introduced the Karic Brothers Award.

It is presented for the highest achievements in the following categories: culture and arts, scientific research work, publishing and journalism, economy and commerce, humanitarian activity in support of peace, cooperation and amity amongst people. The award is presented annually. Individuals, organizations, and institutions all have the right to propose a candidate.

The proposal should be submitted in written form to the Karic Foundation. The Executive Board decides on the laureates. A team of experts proposes to the Board three candidates in each category of whom one is subsequently chosen. The award was originally presented in 1998 and the names of its winners best attest to the justified ambition of becoming, with time, the Serbian equivalent to the Nobel Prize.

“Thank you very much Karić Foundation for acknowledging the efforts and for giving this huge honor! While I am nothing without the support of my mother, family, and friends I’ll dedicate this award to all the people of the world who suffer discrimination of any sort. To all the people who are made to believe they are lesser of a human.

Let’s hope for a tomorrow free of discrimination be it gender, racial, religious or against people with physical or mental challenges. Let’s be there for one another, let’s embrace everyone the way they are. In the end, a little more kindness and a little less judgment are all we need to make this world a better place to live. So let’s be kind and be human!” – Muniba Mazari
