Gladwin Das

about this book: As a cardiologist I deal with life and death issues every day of my life. This has a profound effect on me personally. As I watch armed conflict and barbaric violence in many parts of the world, it is exactly the opposite of what my profession is all about - saving lives. It has for long made me ask: Who are we humans? What are we? Where are we?

The world's attention is being diverted from the most important issues of our time. We are beset by problems that seemingly are insurmountable, from horrendous barbaric violence fueled by religious, political, racial, tribal and ethnic differences to the rapid destruction of life sustaining eco systems on Earth. We can be apathetic to these problems or find tangible ways to address them. It is time to look at solutions from a global human perspective. We are the species Homo sapiens. We are one. We owe it to our children and future generations to discover our oneness as a species, work together to leave behind a legacy that is truly worthy of our children and future generations.

This book analyzes the reasons for human conflict, methods to bring nations together, the role of women in modern society, and the real priorities for humans today. The title conveys the anguish that I feel for our folly in ravaging this paradise. We all need to be the agents for change. The next 100 years will launch this planet over the cliff of disaster if we are apathetic to the pressing issues that currently languish. This book is a wake up call.
