Life in 2030

What will our life look like in the year 2030?
Though it seems, going by our standards of living and our negligence and utter ignorance of environment, I don’t think that we will be able to last until that time. But nevertheless by some miracle, if we last and technology takes the lead, how will be our life?
How about your WiFi controlling every electronic item in the house?
How about your furniture shifting its shape according to your needs and desires?
How about drones delivering you food? Oh wait! that’s already happening now.
How about using recycled water? I mean your waste goes for recycling and comes back to you for washing and drinking. Yuck! Wouldn’t need that facility!
These guys have thought and pictured some really cool visualizations about how life will be in the year 2030. Check it out.

No Choice Left

The last week has seen a lot of action in the country. Nobody expected the Indian P.M to suddenly throw a big surprise and a shock on the national T.V that Rs. 500 and 1,000 notes will not be in power anymore and new notes will come in existence.
The common man who does not understand the nitty gritty of the economy was more concerned about getting the possible required liquidity for their home expenses. Most of them accepted the fact that there must be something better in doing this. Of course people were/are little disturbed standing in long lines.
In spite of the P.M’s assurance that petrol pumps and hospitals would cooperate with the banned notes, some of them are not doing the same, specially the hospitals. How Inhuman! At the same time, there are examples of hospitals giving the treatment for free to people who do not have the required cash.
All these to stop the black money in the market. The same black money that is used by money hoarders to satisfy their selfish ends without caring for the common people, the same money that is used by some political parties to win elections by dubious means, the same black money that is used by some people from across the border to fund the terrorists and lot more.
The hoarders immediately started throwing the money in fear of the raid. Crores thrown in the river Ganga, bags and bags of currency money thrown in the garbage dumps, and more!
Media immediately started doing its job. Projecting the news as it is and creating news as they thought. ( A newspaper reported that an elderly man passed away standing long hours in the line on the front pages, but later withdrew the statement and apologized with a small note in one of their interior pages that one can hardly catch a glance on.)
And politicians? We all know what happened. Some U.P bigwig ministers immediately opposed the move. The famous muffler C.M as always put the blame on the P.M. I wonder if he even eats without remembering the P.M. The Congress Prince thought he could mingle with the public by standing in the line and withdrawing Rs.4000. Really! He has the need to withdraw this small amount of money? Not to mention that it was reported he didn’t even knew how to use the ATM and had to ask the security guard to guide him! The guard even knows his Pin Number now!

Let’s see how the effect goes in the coming time period. for now, the common man supports the P.M.

Have you ever…?

We all go to a nice place for a retreat or chill out, probably near a beach or a small forest nearby sometimes in our life.
We all think of having a perfect holiday.. like, getting up late.. watching TV until mid morning… then going out for a breakfast and then on shopping and then the other activities… ending up at a disco or dinner or a movie…
But how many of us prefer to visit a beach or the jungle early in the morning to see nature at its best? Very few.
I had the rare opportunity to be at a beach one morning in Goa before the sun rose. What did I see? Nothing spectacular except that I could hear the pure silence at the beach, the water making a splashing sound that I could hear clearly unlike the previous day when the beach was busy with people and activities.
The splashing sound of the water early in the morning is worth to hear. Silent, fun, contemplative… That sound is the purest from the regular ‘sounds’ that we hear in our lives. The bird world had also not awaken so you can imagine. The bonus? The sun arising slowly.
Worth a try sometimes.
