Hello! Friends!

We are back with a new proverb as per our daily commitment to you. The man may be defined as the most modern animal on the planet earth, isn’t it? They can act, do and think in an ingenious manner that no other animal can do. We are human. Whereas, one supernatural power also exists—which even more powerful than a normal man can imagine—God.
The man always proposes never take a single break. The hunger of mankind for the valuable resources and land was never a secret. Sometimes the greed at its pinnacle; when it leads to many wars and it stills present right now for no right reason. The humans plan all things by its order but God shapes things whether they like or not.

Climate Change:

One of the most dangerous hazards ever produced by man is termed climate change. Thanks to the several versions of industrializations. Though man proposes prosperity without taking care of god gifted nature. According to one of the UN Environment report by 2025 the ice frozen on the Antarctic will disappear—consequently, may archipelago countries would be wiped from the world map.

To conclude it would have well said, “Man proposes, God disposes.” We can request the god but the outcome is secured by god.
