Report-back on Himalayan visit

himalayan-culture-sDGR UK members Elliott and Rachel recently visited the Himalayan mountains, in part to see how traditional cultures live. Elliott shares an account of their experiences, describing the negative impacts of civilisation. He concludes:

My lasting impression was that if Western civilisation stopped tomorrow, after an initial period of readjustment, the people of Khati would experience a considerable improvement in their lives. Generations of people are still alive that possess knowledge that the younger generations seem unable and uninterested to receive. But those elders won’t be alive for much longer. Western civilisation must be stopped as soon as possible.

    It seems like a judgement was made that these people were not happy. I see the intrusion of westernization and your observation was keen. Industrialization is what we have evolved to and remote areas have been “stung” by the “want to have bee”.
    Everything-all comes around in time. Time is this planet and growth for this village and evolution for this village is where it is FOR THE PRESENT MOMENT.
