There’s always a peculiar reason.

In a forum discussing on violence against children, I got to know that more than 80% of child abuses are done by the family members or the immediate relatives. 'Why?' my heart cried. Then the answer came. Children are warned about the outsiders: Do not get in to vehicles, do not talk with people you [...]

More Pictures and Videos is AR and VR.

Augmented reality (AR) and Virtual reality (VR)  will transform humans in to smartphone addicts. Make no mistake, it will make humans super addicted, most of the time to something not real. Marketers and sellers would decide what should be your bubble. Though you may think  you have access to all the information in the word, [...]

We are so connected.

I was recently at a meeting with 25 people for 2 hours. That is 50 man hours. What we achieved ? - confusion and boredom. Only one [...]

Remove myself from the equation

The vehicle in-front of the taxi I was traveling made a sudden lane change which prompted the driver to stand on his breaks. We were unharmed. I said “ what a fool”, or something similar. Ten seconds of silence and the driver said “ When I am on the road, and when I am behind [...]
