“Redefining Darvin’s Theory in Today’s World.”

More than 150 years ago Darvin gave a theory about human evolution. The theory was based on the fundamental of natural selection which encompasses that complex creatures need to evolve over time by adapting to the beneficial mutation (changes in genetics) which aid in their ‘survival‘ and pass this on to next generation/  species or form a different creature itself. However, the time has changed and retaining only beneficial mutations does not help in 21st century.

In modern globalized world where both men and women are equally working and contributing not just to grow their families but also to the growth of the economy; it has become evident that in the fast growing countries like India the number of nuclear families are increasing. While the traditional joint families setup helped keep the moral high with intact support system at home, in the new age families are hardly finding time to devote to their children and not to talk about kith and kins. On the one hand while these reforms are good but on the other hand the amount of work pressure, competitive environment and lack of time for self is adding up to the mental stress.

The context here is clear that while it is very much appreciated for women also being the contributor, we cannot deny the fact that amount of responsibilities, work pressure and competition are continuously going to increase – hence to lead a stable and happy life we certainly need to make a key change in ourselves i.e. to keep a fit & stable mind which keeps us peaceful from within.

The fact is that some of the major colleges and institutions have already started teaching various classes on yoga; meditation and emotional intelligence to keep the next generation stress free in a competitive environment and stay positive even if they fail at first.

In a nutshell, it’s time for us to learn the art of being stressfree and to take care of our mental health while still striving, working hard and keeping a progressive mindset which in turn will keep a person on high moral grounds and help him / her lead a happy and content life.
