Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today said that Ebola virus may be the “way of nature to balance things”.
“Nature has its own way of balancing, including probably Ebola,” Parrikar said.
“You will always find coal in forests. For that you have to explore forests. What is coal today is yesteryears’ trees which have gone deep in the earth due to changes in the earth. Nature has its own way of balancing,” he said while mentioning that Ebola is one such way.
The reference to the Ebola virus came at the fag end of his speech in the Legislative Assembly which was convened for a special one-day session today to ratify the National Judicial Appointments Commission Bill, 2014.
During his speech, Parrikar said that the country, which has huge reservoirs of coal, had to import coal worth USD 25 billion due to the orders of judiciary.

Excuse me, but am I wrong in thinking that Nature may balance things but the United States etc helps this and itself by strategically IMBALANCING things in favor of the wealthy and privileged everywhere? And that it is no accident that those who recovered easily from Ebola just happened to return from Africa to be well-treated in privileged and rich American hospitals? Oh, yeah, except for the one poor fellow who had no insurance and so was sorta dumped out of the Emergency Department several times and ignored until it was too late? Hmmm.
Oh sure, nature has a certain homeostasis that she tries to maintain, but it is humanity’s overuse of coal and gas and oil in the wealthiest of countries that has by far done the most to upset this delicate balance…and who suffers most from this now? The poorest and least advantaged countries, of course!
Go for it, kamayani bali mahabal, and keep telling it like it is.
My best to you,
