    Ring of Fire – II 

    Earlier this evening, Dad and I were watching the latest videos of Japan’s recent devastation. There was a news capsule on a possible nuclear meltdown. Scientists are saying that if there is blast, its effect will go beyond Japan. Scary,Very Scary.

    We both were discussing in general and then I had my Ripley’s believe it or not moment – ” Japan, Philippines, Indonesia and all other pacific islands are actually volcanic formations, it’s not LAND, just lava “. 😐

    At some point of the conversation, I asked  “what are the options for Japan”. Out came a reply which I least expected ”

    Migration

    All the pacific nations should vacate and move to America, Australia and Canada, if possible India and China should accommodate few millions”. Me, totally baffled. I had this are-you-kidding-me look on my face. He continued ” Seismic activity in the pacific is likely to intensify over the decades, if they want to save their people, best would to be to migrate”. I didn’t buy that immediately, a little thought and I realized it makes complete sense. Canada, Australia has huge uninhabited land, they can comfortably accommodate the whole population  of Japan, Philippines, fiji and other Pacific Islands. Dad foresees this idea coming into play sooner than later. Japan is in the verge of a nuclear disaster, where do you think all the people would go? Here’s a possible scenario – USA owes close to $1 trillion to Japan [ Long term trade debt ], so you see, they might ask for piece of land instead of cash. Americans on the other hand will wipe out 20% of their debt and get access to the best engineering brains. [ How’s that for an idea? a modern form of colonization 😛 ]

      hmmm… Dont know. If the Americans/ Canadian/ Australians having vast stretch of Uninhabited land would agree to this proposition.
      I dont buy that Japan/Indonesia and all are not landforms but basically Lava deposited over the years. What is the argument for your hypothesis?

        Moving to other nations would be their last resort..esp in case of nuclear explosion, the atmosphere over Japan would be contaminated for years..People wud suffer as they did during d WW II bombings..

        As of the geology part…Dad is a Phd in geology..we can safely assume he has got his facts right 😛

          rajiv…narendra wud be right…igneous rocks (its sth like that, learnt it in school waaaay back), which are basically just cooled down lava, which then cools down and gives u islands like japan . indonesia etc. makes sense, theres a ring of volcanoes in that region.

          naren why a nuclear disaster?

              no im not to be honest 😦 when i leave the house the newspaper hasnt come in yet, and when i come back its been trashed…..im not one for online news, so i just hear abt odd snippets here and there at night. thats how bad i am 😦

              will this have implications for other countries? or just those in the region?

              • Narendra 8:00 pm on March 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

                Of Course, if there’s a meltdown, effects of radiation will be felt in China, S Korea, N Korea, Philippines. As of now the situation is getting worse..hope for the best

    Indian movies go local 

    With the turn of the Century, India and China have fast emerged as super powers. China leading the way in manufacturing and India claiming honors in Services segment. In simple terms both countries are increasingly stamping their presence across the globe.

    If you leave out the economics thing. Other chief drivers are Food and Movies. There is nothing to talk about Chinese food and their cheap kung fu moives, both have unmatched following. India isn’t far behind. Food is already big world over. In fact there are few Indian restaurants which have more branches outside than in India.

    However, what has really put us in limelight are our movies. Here are few videos which show how the world has taken to Indian Movies.

     

    An east asian dude singing away a popular hindi number at a Cantonese reality show, does a neat job.

     

    This one’s a Oscar winning song. Check out this spanish band, cool job.

     

    Check out these young girls crooning a famous bollywood song, watch out for their facial expressions. LoL

     

    We even got into the wedding parties as well, This one’s amazing.

     

    Hey, We got Aryan cousins hooked to our dance numbers, See this

     

    Trust you enjoyed watching these videos. Many more on youtube.

      I little tiny bit of India that I get in my small corner of the world comes from visiting this blog each day, maybe someday we’ll get an Indian restaurant here, because I am now in the mood for lunch.
