If you look at what youngsters are doing, look at their effort and read the projects ...

ms_a.z ,I don't agree with you that the world is getting worse
each day. We cannot deny the great development of human'slife, technology is a good example. Of course, there are so many people in poverty now, in war too, especially in Africa.
Every country is better each day but the gap between rich and poor countries, between the rich and the poor is really so big ...
Development of human's life is in general but how to distribute that advantage to all residents who are present in the world, indeed people have not done it.

Hi ms_az,
ms_az, I do know there are many many people dying everyday in the world cos they have to live in poverty, in poor conditions without food, clothes, clean water...How sad when there are so many rich ones who own a great amount of proverty while others are hungry to death. It is really unfair.
ms_az, there are no people who are for concience's shake will be happy to see others starve or live in pains. Only cruel ones do that and it seems the ratio of those is not small.
As for this, I completely agree with you .

I think it's not about making the world a better place at once but it's possible for everybody to make him/herself a better human being: more friendly, more patient, more understanding, more happy ... + every time you smile at somebody, you are nice to s.b. or try to understand s.b. you make him feel better + the better one feels the better he is to the others ... I believe that this is the way to make this world a better place for all of us to live in. Peace + Love from Antje

Making World a Happier place ha ha ha

Postby Adhir Garg » Tue Jun 22, 2004 6:05 am

hi guys (especially Arale, moon),

So we r discussing 1. ways to make world happier place to live 2. how to do it if possible.

World is happier and is a bit divided.. There are some optimistic people who believe that it is getting better because of technologies ( we have aeroplanes to move in a short period, cars etc which make life easier, computer here which is being used for chatting :wink: etc.). On the other hand there are some pessimistic who believe that these aeroplanes would create more pollution thus making earth more unlively place.. Well both type of people have their own strong points. But we should consider both things. There are some ways we can improve. If we just stick to our roots and then try to change things a bit, definitely World can be made a happier place... So we should try it.. .(Are u able to get something..???? :) NO Tension aish kar lo.. This life is very small :)
Life is very short (max 100 years normally), so enjoy every moment of it

Hello all people talking about this topic ,
The world is better or not ,it depends on each person's opinion .Yes ,Adhir Garg ,there are optimistic people and pessimistic ones .I wonder whether optimistic people are living in good condition and vice versa ? Do you mean they have a good life so their opinion is optimistic too ?
Antje ,of course everybody has to strive to be better ,to complete our personality .< But in fact ,there are many people being worse each day so I don't called them human when they are corrupted >.Everyone is better so the world is better as well .Well ,so I mean to make our world better it belongs to each person ,each family ,each city ,each nation ...
As I said what is a better world we mean is also a problem .As for me ,a better world is a world in which both material and spritual life are better .
If we think our life is good it will be good
If we think our life is bad it will be bad .

A lot of people talk about making the world a ( better place ). Do you think this is possible??? :roll:
If (yes), tell me how, and if (no), tell me why.


see you soon





it is impossible to let the world become more beautiful ,for the war, drugs ,crime,etc, often occurs and happened in the world, so we don;t think so, we must keep clean brain to do my best in real work and get more money to feed myself.
