Requirements for a peaceful & spiritual world! Every human must have access to substance (Food & clean water Dude!), shelter (a roof and hygene facilities), clothing (kind of like shelter for the body). This should be provided for by the state and private enterprises working in harmony for the betterment of all instead of the corporate agenda currently occupying most business which is profit for the few!

A sudden crisis rose when war on Iraq declared, its recognition as protector of world became questionable by many who relied on it. This showed something went beyond control of UNITED NATIONS and had to sit back. Some countries were more powerful dominated and went their own way, UN and its 191 members could do nothing, was an indication of its failure to organize as powerful International body. Out of 191 countries in our world, only 15 are members of security council; 10 are elected by general assembly for 2 year term and 5 are permanent members (have veto rights). Decisions on the issues are made by positive votes of at least nine out of the 15 members. That means decisions on matters require nine votes, including the votes of five permanent members (veto power). So, 5 out of 9 members are strong members with having veto rights. All 191 members of the United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of 9 members (4+5) of Security Council. The fate of entire world is on 5 permanent and 10 assembly (2 year term) elected members who decide the destiny of the world. The Council alone has power of decision that member States are obligated to carry out as per the UN charter. This system may not be transparent as long as voting rights not given to all its members. The real democratic pattern is involving all its members for contributing to making decision. Veto right is dictating term that obligates others to carry. Entire United Nations and its 191 members are under dominance of 5 permanent and 4 assembly elected members. New world order means amendment of UN Security Council policy to retain and establish its image.

This correspondent is a television journalist engaged with a local private satellite television channel at “News & Current Affairs Desk”. Since the United Nations is a symbol of hope, trust and sense of safety for global community around the world. Being part of this civilized and literate global community circle of journalists I would extend my appreciation to all mover endeavors by the UNO for the prosperity, peace, development and security of world.

Keeping this important role of the UNO in the world community particularly in the information arena, I am willing to present a unique and positive television broadcast on the daily UNO affairs. The said kind of program will be made on air in English and our local national language Urdu. The said broadcast will comprise of news, stories, statements and events of the UNO.

As this proposed program will enable a wide viewer ship for the UNO particularly foreign diplomatic and business circles, local business, political, governmental and public circles will have an in-depth insight of the UNO activities, which in a normal course of broadcast is not much possible.

In this connection I would like to have your kind cooperation to get this proposed broadcast on air and successful.

I would be waiting to have your positive and immediate response in this connection at your earliest possible.

Thanking you a lot.

Sincerely yours,

Television Journalist/Current Affairs & News expert

Raising 50% food production by 2030 (U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon told world leaders) but the issue is how? Present economic pattern of the globe only helps promoting urban economics. Major Asian countries which were producing and exporting food grain to the world now intend producing and supplying computer and electronic goods. Most countries do not pay attention to promote agricultural product through research to add on value thus become profitable. Consequence of urban economics is excessive urbanization. Urban related economic growth thrusts agricultural land conversion to cities and building to accommodate urban population and industries. Over 20% of farm lands of developing countries have been converted to cities and buildings for the past decades and Over 50% of farmlands of villages (close to cities) got merged with cities. Food shortage is as war on world, could be disastrous to collapse world economics. Food is first priority for each consumer, expensive food would prune consumption of other product’s and services.

• World absolutely need to pay attention the importance of rural economics and emphasize on agriculture and add on value to it.
• Present education pattern only facilitates urbanization to grow urban population. Change in education pattern so to improve student’s taste towards agriculture and its research that includes animal farming.
• Agriculture need to be profitable for the farmers.
• More allocation of fund and land to agricultural sector.
• Tough international legislation to arrest speculative gambling on essential commodities.
• Bring back the incentives to farmers to produce more without incurring losses.
• World population will grow and land will be less for us so maximum endeavor to scientific research so can use most land and water available on earth that includes desert land and sea.
• Main cause of food shortage is growth pattern of developing countries. So bio fuel alone is not responsible. The real culprits are shortage and speculation hoarding. However, growing crop for fuel in land for food is not justified scientists and research professionals can work on sourcing from sea, river, desert or unused land plants or other means.
