Problems are shields around solutions. Problems are invitations to develop solution-seeking attitudes. Problems are like special spices in life to make it easier, lovable and livable with full energy and introspection. Problems are like time-testing teachers. Someone has to break the ice to show the light of hope.

Everyone faces different types of problems throughout life as if there is no life without problems. We may say problems start with the birth of every single one in this materialistic world. Despite all acceptable facts, I think that the plethora of problems is because of our desire.

Our ancestors started lives at a time when present days facilities were not available. They might have started their lives like animals in terms of food habits and dwelling styles. They might have led lives actually with great difficulties, most unsafe and might always have faced threats to lives from animals and other creatures. I think that our ancestors might have taken steps for safety with the passage of time, noticing the behaviours of other creatures in the locality.

As a safety measure, our ancestors might have started living above the ground on trees or in safe dwellings. Whatever the steps might have been taken by our ancestors I assume that the number and complexity of problems started since then.
The moment we leave the earth’s surface, in the name of our safety, to stay a few feet high above it, we start inviting problems. The first problem for the same is to get the means to stay at a certain height. Nature is the sole supplier of such means of safety from time immemorial mainly wood from trees.

Since then we humans are facing problems to maintain that height above the ground. Problems are changing every day in many forms and ways. Now problems have increased manifold with the passage of time. With developments and technology’s upgrading, we have given birth to many unimaginative problems. Sometimes, while solving one problem, the solution has given birth to other problems.

Now, l have reached on conclusion that still we are facing threats to our lives because of our selfish thoughts.

Our ancestors started from scratch and judiciously used resources from nature as per need. But, later on, the growth of civilisations in different parts of the earth might have faced local, regional and geographical challenges as problems, followed by efforts in search of solutions. As a result, there might have been differences in mental ability, language, knowledge of nature and the universe etc. But despite differences, there was one thing in common, and that was the belief in the almighty, as a creator.

However, different types of problems cropped up when interactions between those civilisations occurred, mainly for establishing supremacy which has given birth to the rat race in the form of war and many more. In these tugs-of-war, the main injuries are born by the nature, the provider of all sorts of resources for existence.

We have advanced a lot and now work diplomatically, as such it becomes difficult to differentiate between friends and foes. The whole game is being played under the carpet. No one knows who is a winner or who is the loser but one thing is common humanity is the loser and the whole world is on the verge of annihilation as a result. Now, mother nature has started taking revenge and paying in the same coin.

It may be accepted that the thought of maintaining the height above the ground is the main cause of all present days problems being witnessed. But problems are weapons of success and survival. We should deal with them as opportunities for the sustainability of humanity. No one can ignore the surrounding for a long time. Our thoughts to prove to be in the world should be for one, everyone and no discrimination.

  1. In grade school we are taught that all problems have a single solution. This is false of course. All problems have multiple solutions but political systems demand that an overwhelming majority of people agree. As reasoned adults, we soon conclude that there are no solutions, only a multitude of other problems.
