Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

World Migration Day

World    Migration    Day

In 5 months ( Jan-May 2015 ), some 50,000 migrants from North Africa , crossed Mediterranean Sea in rickety boats, to land on shores of Italy

That is some 10,000 per month ( soon reaching 100,000 per month ? )

Irrespective of EU countries' decision to admit only 20,000 per year , by 2020  this figure could reach 1 MILLION per month !

Why this huge migration ?

Apparent Reasons :

>   ISIL is terrorizing Syria / Iraq

>   Boko Haram are doing the same in Nigeria

>   Houthies are following both in Yemen

>   Libya is facing a civil war

>   North and South Sudans are at war

>   Tunisia is boiling with massive unrest

>   Taliban is rearing its ugly head in Afghanistan

>   Egypt is simmering with angst against Muslim Brotherhood

>   Pakistan is becoming terrorists' training ground

>   Turkey / Lebanon / Jordan are getting overrun with refugees

>   All over Mid-East , Shias and Sunnis are fighting

In short , most of African and Mid-East countries are exploding with local wars , under Europe's soft underbelly and porous right borders

 Real Reasons :

Millions of citizens of these countries are facing unemployment and consequent starvation ( when not getting killed by terrorists )

It is no different with migrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar trying to find shelter in Indonesia / Philippines / Australia / Thailand

Closer  At  home  :

Of entire World's 800 million " malnourished " ( euphemism for " starving " )  people , 200 million are in India

Only , instead of calling them " Starving " people , we choose to call them , " Naxalites / Maoists " etc !

We fail to realize that there can be no political solution to " Starvation " !

Where can they migrate ? There is no " Promised Land " on India's borders !

Solution  ?

Since no developed country wants to admit migrants from poor countries , let UNO declare , Antarctica as " United States of Migrants " - USM

And fix quotas of migrants that each poor country can dispatch to USM each year ( - roughly in proportion to " Starving " population of each poor country )

Then contribute funds for creating settlements in Antarctica ( - in any case , due to Global Warming , ice-shelves are melting and soon Antarctica will become habitable ) . 

For the rich countries , this would be the most , economically and socially viable solution

Let a beginning be made by declaring 27 June , as

World  Migration  Day  "
