So where is all the fuss now ??? it's just 3 months away , and no one is bothered at all . In fact why should we be ??  no use at all . Any guesses on what this is about ??  Well , i don't think you would have guessed it , coz as i said , none is bothered, in the first place .Okay, let me tell you myself what i am trying to say here . Nothing but the, once much feared "Doom's day - 21st Dec 2012".

Around 3 years ago , the entire world was abuzz with the 2012 apocalypse.Just mention the year 2012, and right from a 60 year old lady to a 16 year old teen will fill you with just one information ; "The world is going to end" . And the courtesy; Obviously the discovery channels started this as their usual slot and god knows how it gained so much popularity.The news channels came out from nowhere and did shows on this. Yes , you are right, they were undoubtedly uncertain about whatever they said . And you are once again right, that's how they are ( the news channels ) most of the time . You cannot entirely blame them for this , it's the subject they handle make them so. For example, consider the Indian politics. It is no less than a tough competitor to fiction . Fiction too can become a fact miraculously, but i doubt that with the former.

Coming back topic, The newspapers said we too can and came with crunchy rubrics.NASA, considered to be the messiah of science, too played it's part very faithfully. And to top it all "The Hollywood" considered as the face of world cinema came up with a million dollar movie - "2012". The movie made two things certain ,

             1) Roland Emmerich ,the director of the flick, can any day make such kind of sci-fiction movies and

             2) He can make only these kind of movies.

Apart from the media , an important source for this horrifying news was none other than the "Mayan's" .
And the spotty evidence they gave ; Their long run calender finally ends on 21st Dec 2012. I don't think anyone knew when it started in the first place. If a small Mayan tribe can predict the end of world and attribute it to a mere calender , Why can't we raised the "NASA" . They went on to state several reason such as,  Magnetic pole shifts , Sun storms and several such theories about which the common man had no clue of .So what did he do ??? Yes, he "Googled" it . To make things more intricate, Google had in it's possession many videos containing the animated depictions of the Sun , the Earth and other galaxies in the course of explaining the stated theories . The seeker's state was at it's pathetic best ; He/She blankly had no clue at all . Without no further choice he chose to do the ultimate thing ; to believe what NASA said  (i.e) "The world is coming to the end" . He did one more social thing , "spreading the word" and he did it astonishingly well.

As time passed, even the horrifying news of the world coming to an end, faded away. Now it's just 3 months away and i being a responsible citizen thought "why not spread the word ?? " and ended up writing this . You having read this would have thought of , well say , at least the "2012" movie , Thus making me achieve my purpose of writing this piece - "spreading the word "
