Asked in Social Sciences, Lakes and Rivers

What is the origin of sutlej river?

User Avatar
River Sutlej originates from a Lake Called Rakshastal in the Tibetan Plateau In fact it is believed that the river originates from the Manasarovar Lake, which is very sacred to the Hindus. Perhaps the reason to attribute the origin to Mansarovar Lake is due to the fact that the lake Mansarovar and Rakahsthal are quite close and in the month of August scanty rain makes the ice melt on the surrounding Gurla Mandata mountains and water overflows from the Mansarovar Lake to the Rakshastal. This overflow is considered as the origin to SUTLEJ

Prove that sociology is the mother of all social sciences?

User Avatar
Philosophy generally is seen as mother of all sciences. I don't think that there is much philosophy behind current 'rational' science. Or it must be the writings of the greatest fantast of all times Immanuel Kant. Sociology with its belief in 'rational' procedures is more like a fundamental religion. Of course all of science is religion, but technological science gives useful tools to research reality. Studying languages, of geography, geology, and so on, also gives us useful tools. Sociology was not there (in present shape) before psychiatry or philosophy, and that seems to me a condition for being mother. I'm sorry but the social sciences never reached a level of being useful like technology. Instead it gave us hundreds of prejudices, a strong belief in individualism, and a tolerant attitude towards capitalism. Where did that bring us?

Were muscular girls once feminine girls because their mothers made them that way first?

User Avatar
The question itself is actually pertaining to an age-old psychology question of nature versus nurture. Nature here is the girl's innate qualities. Their biological and emotional make-up such as hormones. The nurture aspect then is the environment that affects a person. For example, these could be the people that the girl has or anything that is external. So here, the current person is a muscular girl. To consider how that person became a muscular girl, the most accepted idea is that it is a combination of both nature and nurture. "because their mothers made them that way" would fall into the category of nurture because it was an external environment that had helped shape the person into a muscular girl. BUT it is also possible that a person can be a muscular girl even if their parents did not made them that way. The girl can just be innately more predisposed to being muscular. She can simply have a high productivity of testosterone which would be a determining factor if she would be a muscular girl. This then would be an example of nature. So to summarize, how a person currently is (whether they are girlie girls or muscular girls or manly boys or feminine boys)would be dependent on their innate qualities (nature) and the external environment (nurture).

What do you understand by the term 'human security'?

User Avatar
Human security is more important than ever before, for the simple reason that various forms of intolerance have gained prominence in human life. Human security is an emerging paradigm for understanding global vulnerabilities whose proponents challenge the traditional notion of national security by arguing that the proper referent for security should be the individual rather than the state. Human security holds that a people-centered view of security is necessary for national, regional and global stability. We find the following reasons for growing security concerns: 1. Religious terrorism (Islamic, Hindu, Sikh etc.) 2. Ideological terrorism (Communists, Naxalites, Maoists etc.) 3. Racism (Australian racism, which their government has accepted) 4. Competition for world / regional supremacy (the US, EU, Russia, China etc.) 5. Simple ignorance and stupidity (Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran) 6. Arms race (India, China, Pakistan) 7. Natural calamities like earthquakes where the helpless are looted (Haiti) Today's it is man's excessive greed and lust that has rendered innocent people's lives in danger. Moreover, only the celebs can get good security. Police, although public servant, do not do their duty fairly well -protecting citizens. I also feel losing of faith and doubting God is another reaosn behind security. Man cannot escape his wrong deeds. He will be punished for every evil deed he has done. But attaching importance to 'human security' is like a mask worn to hide himself... Its a sad state of human existence. All these factors lead to a renewed though on the importance of human security

Asked in Travel & Places, Environmental Issues, Social Sciences

Is tourism harming the environment?

User Avatar
Yes, tourism harms the environment. Anything that humans do in large numbers harms the environment. With the exception of hiking and biking (and the minimal number of places that utilize natural forms of energy are for transportation) all travel and tourism uses energy from fossil fuels for transportation, which harms the habitat from which the fuels are extracted, depletes those resources, pollutes the environment when transported to the point where they're used and pollutes the environment when they're used to transport tourists. Natural places are modified for tourist accommodation and activities; the more space used for tourism displaces the more natural spaces are destroyed and the species who depended on that habitat are displaced or destroyed. Tourism is not 100% a bad thing. People do need to make a living by taking advantage of the resources available to them. People also are enriched by the experience of travel and tourism by taking them out of their own sphere of knowledge and exposing them to new people and new cultures. Some efforts are already being made to use more environmentally friendly means for ground transportation but all air transportation and most water transportation still use forms of energy that harm the environment.
