Did you know about this insect? It spends 17 years underground growing from larva to a bug ! 17 years !! What kind of karma has it acquired for it go through such a difficult miserable life, if being born as an insect wasn’t bad enough?
As a human being, we can spend 17 years of our youth educating oneself on Krishna Consciousness and help all living entities hear the Holy Name of Lord Krishna! Otherwise one slip in our human judgement can cause us to take birth in a lower species of life.
