If the World has 100 people !

I witnessed an impressive stat from the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay. They just took the entire statistics of the world and after an interesting transformation, it boiled down to the following.

Overall, assuming that the world will have 100 people, then
  • 50 would be female
  • 50 would be male
  • 20 would be children
  • There would be 80 adults,
  • 14 of whom would be 65 and older

There would be:
  • 61 Asians
  • 12 Europeans
  • 13 Africans
  • 14 people from the Western Hemisphere

There would be:
  • 31 Christians
  • 21 Muslims
  • 14 Hindus
  • 6 Buddhists
  • 12 people who believe in other religions
  • 16 people who not be aligned with a religion

17 would speak Chinese
8 would speak Hindustani
8 would speak English
7 would speak Spanish
4 would speak Arabic
4 would speak Russian
52 would speak other languages

82 would be able to read and write; 18 would not

1 would have a college education
1 would own a computer

75 people would have some supply of food and a place to
shelter them from the wind and the rain, but 25 would not

1 would be dying of starvation
17 would be undernourished
15 would be overweight

83 would have access to safe drinking water
17 people would have no clean, safe water to drink

So, Now What ?

It clearly says, only
  1. 1/100 will have a college education.
  2. 1/100 will have a computer.
I have seen people who sit and mutter to themselves just like they are the only soul stranded in the whole world & everyone else is 'perfect'. Come on, who doesn't have a problem ? What is a life that's without a problem ? Who likes to just eat & sleep everyday ? Where is the challenge then ? Why are you born ?
If you are reading this blog, i can assume that you own a computer as well as had (or having or will have) a College education. You just read that there are undernourished people. Even they die of starvation.
  • Do you realize that 'You are gifted' ?
  • You are actually special.
  • You are not left behind by any one.
  • You have a task to do.
  • You are the one going to bring the CHANGE.
  • You are 1 in a 100 !
Now stop acting. Ascend & Astonish.
