Recently the death toll in US due to corona-virus passed 150,000 and US has been leading on daily covid cases for quite a while now.

The other day I was taking a stroll in my community park when I noticed this woman jogging with her headphones on and she almost tripped because of a pothole on the sidewalk. The sight was really funny but somehow, I controlled my laughter. Another guy passed me, walking with his headsets on. Almost everyone I saw walking or jogging was either with headsets or were talking with fellow runners. Only the old people were exercising without support of any technology. They were the people who really seemed to enjoy the surroundings and nature. I have come to one conclusion from this that humans literally have become highly dependent on technology.
Recently NASA launched the Perseverance rover to mars which exploring and gathering knowledge about ancient life on Mars. It will also collect samples of Martian soil and leave them on surface of mars for pick up by future mars missions. It is also equipped with a helicopter to test flights in Martian atmosphere. If successful it will be the third rover to be deployed on the red planet. By far it is the most advanced and sophisticated rover ever designed and the total mission cost is whooping 3 billion dollars. UAE also launched its first mars missions and there are upcoming missions by Chinese space agency ISRO and ESA. So, the question arises that why NASA and other space agencies around the world spend billions of dollars on space missions when that money can easily be invested in education healthcare and most importantly at eradicating poverty.

This can be attributed to regular intake of high calorie food mostly fast food. Growing healthcare cost in the US can also be attributed to people adopting a more healthy lifestyle. Healthy food not only makes the body feel light and comfortable but also increases the life expectancy of an individual.
The moon was starting to fade away but its light, after being reflected by every molecule of the crystal-clear river water, lit up the shore. Little glimmers of red light could be seen as it was the time of dawn. As the cool breeze was blowing it gently lifted up the girl's hair as she watched the boatman paddling across the river. She has always been there, far away from the fast, busy and buzzing city life. That small village was her paradise her world. Those mountains had limited her view but not her heart.
