While all of us know that medical technologies have improved a lot during the recent years, is our technology-driven modern lifestyle increasing the need/demand for healthcare facilities, silently?
I seriously fail to understand the role of technology in ‘improving’ our lives. If you look at it outwardly, then yes, technology is definitely simplifying things and enabling people to do more. The time spent on a particular job has been reduced drastically as technology is being infused into each and every segment these days.
But does that mean all iz well? Continue reading
When I went to the Jane Jacobs walk around North Chennai recently, I met the person who runs Bambaram.in. I got curious by the name and asked him what the site is all about, and he told me that it’s an online rental library for toys, books, board games, puzzles, DIY science kits, CD’s and other infotainment products for kids .
I thought that the concept was interesting enough to mention it in my site. Imagine how much money parents spend on toys/books for kids, only to realize that their child is already bored with it within a few days (hours?). In no time, kids always want another new toy!! So, instead of buying toys/board games, why not rent it? Once the kid is exhausted with a toy, one can just return it and get another! Continue reading

I appreciate Vaiko’s recent ‘padayatra’ march against alcohol consumption and demanding prohibition in Tamil Nadu. It’s rare to see politicians take up such causes. I do remember that banning ‘bars’ in liquor shops was the first ruling passed by our current CM in her first term, but I haven’t come across politicians doing much about alcoholism, thereupon. On the other hand, I have read that politicos distribute alcohol just before elections and that is one reason why the wine shops remain closed during elections.
I am proud that I live in a country that does not allow advertisements for alcohol/tobacco products and this rule has been in force for a considerable amount of time, now. Gujarat has already set an excellent example by prohibiting alcohol (though it maybe unofficially available) and other states should look at following the example set by Gujarat. People who criticize the politicians and Government at every available opportunity should look at such positive aspects, as well. Continue reading

Do you get any nightmares? Do you remember them? Generally, I don’t get any dreams and I experience perfect blankness during sleep. But rarely, I do get dreams/nightmares and yesterday night was one of them. What makes it unique is, I still remember some scenes from the dream, even now! Continue reading
