Nature is the genesis of mankind. It has a ubiquitous significance which to dismay, current day mankind is not willing to accept. The irony of making fun of one’s own existence benchmarks the very rationale behind human motives to play with nature and ultimately invite crisis for themselves. Actually the audacity to jeopardize the relevance of environment and surroundings is geared up because of an eternal fact that the results are not penultimate. They get reflected years later or miles away which have a very subtle influence on the daily chores of man, which make them feel that they have not wronged anyone.
It seems to be outside the purview of man, that how their petty deeds can lead to catastrophes? Is it possible that simply cutting a tree, throwing waste on the road or polluting the river can result to a tsunami or a Katrina? It would definitely be an unsound assumption to accuse any one person for such disasters. It is just the culminate effort of people playing with nature throughout the world, that we poor souls get chastised by the punitive actions when nature promises a revenge against us.
The massive earthquake, floods, drought, windstorms, avalanches and glaciers meltdown are all a result of negligence on the part of human psyche. We are not able to justify our existence on this planet as the gratitude to return back the sanctity and basic elements to the mother planet is gradually eroding. And when nature wraths its fury, thousands get homeless and are forced to survive on the mercy of government agencies appointed to save mankind from mass sacrilege.
One of the major activities involved in such operations is to provide emergency food supply. The masses that are left at the mercy of the volunteers or the government appointed troops depend heavily on the food supply, as it becomes the only source of survival. These agencies need to coordinate and arrange for proper food items and have to ensure their freshness and edible properties. As during emergencies transportation of food items along with other rescue items is done on a rapid transit system, it becomes very important that the food items which are supposed to be given to the people, should not be tainted or spoilt.
Carbohydrates are the best food items which should be distributed during emergencies. They have the properties to give energy and serve as wholesome food. It is easier to supply food items which are rich in carbohydrates like rice, cup noodles, bakery items, and oats.
Another alarming situation that is hovering on human beings around the world is that of acute food shortage. Though we might not get the news telecasted on television, and get liberty to walk in a food mall and shop for unlimited quantity yet the dark truth is looming that massive global food shortage is approaching. For such a horrifying and spine chilling prediction do send shivers throughout the body as it is difficult to comprehend that one day the difference between the have and have-nots would shrink, as even those who could afford would not be able to procure food, leave away the one’s who cannot afford even today. The reasons are manifold. World population is exploding at an alarming rate, over farming; over fishing and environment degradation are all starting to beware us. It is the correct time to store food, as the question of emergency food supply is going to ripen very soon.
It is a well known fact that, food prices have drastically risen in the year 2010. Food items containing rice, milk and sugar have registered highest growth and has reached a level, which is out of the periphery of the common man. These indicators need not establish the truth that the food shortage is signaling emergency food supply in near future. It is not just the natural disasters that we were highlighting earlier, but a host of other factors have accentuated the crisis and have resulted in a dire need of providing emergency supplies of food.
To summarize, every household should be well equipped with the basic facts of emergency food supply, as we never know when we might need to face hard facts of life. Proper water storage of minimum three months should be ensured during emergencies. Food items, medical prescriptions and the basic supplementing ration should be well stored in advance. Moreover proper precautions should also be taken in its preservation and it should be ensured that all the food items should be stored in proper air tight containers and neat and clean place.
