Question:
When will the sixth 'kalkhand' (time block) come? Can the conditions likely to arise during this period of time be averted?

Answer:
For the sixth time block to come, there are several years to go. It is possible that, if industrialization continues unabated and the hole in the zone umbrella expands beyond limits, the 'kalkhand' due thousands of years from now may arrive much sooner. It is very difficult then to avoid future hardships and the kalkhand. Even today the number of people who think about realities is very few, and the number of people who think about comforts and luxuries is very large. We have often heard that people have died due to drinking alcohol, what is there to worry? After all we have to die one day. Man's attitudes have become somewhat like this today. In a situation like this, what forecast could be made?
