Gadgetman, are you ???

According to Wikipedia, A gadget is a small technological object (such as a device or an appliance) that has a particular function, but is often thought of as a novelty. Gadgets are invariably considered to be more unusually or cleverly designed than normal technological objects at the time of their invention. Gadgets are sometimes also referred to as gizmos.
 Our whole surrounding is laden with gadgets, which have become a part of our essential reality. Right from our birth, from the doctor's ultrasound machine, to dad's newly bought toy, to advent of mobile phones and music players, the microwave, or the HD television set, the whole world is drenched with gadgets.
But there is a common misconception among people, that gadgets define you. Though we buy gadgets suiting our personality. It helps us do our office work at home, n the go, browse internet, travel across places using interactive maps, light ur cigarette, cool your mind with your favorite music. With the amount of applications in everyday gadgets, it make life simpler for people from all walks of life alike.

A device or gadget is mostly used these days as a status symbol, than a utility instrument. An actor or a CEO can't walk with a black and white display mobile, or a lower range laptop. It would be more embarrassing for the person. At the same time, If a new student in a college walks with an iphone, he is rich, cool, and the most happening guy in college.
 At the same time, changing the looks or modifying the old device, by squeaking minor changes, has a huge impact. Imagine your old car, with a new shiny coating and colour, your old phone with a new and trendy external body, or your laptop with a personalized body.
 I have a Windows mobile phone, which does give some sophistication to my personality, but does not define who I am. It helps me a lot to collect all the medical stuff in one place.
  I can display important power point presentation through my mobile. There are apps these days to directly transfer medical patient data to your PDA, though its present in only sophisticated equipment. I personalize it as much as possible, to my favorite ringtone and favorite team's wallpaper. I have a game joystick, coz i love games. And i have a wireless bluetooth headset for music.
  But in this era, we are too much dependent on gadgets, like if u have not worn your watch on a day to office,  you feel like having forgotten to wear a shirt, and if you have forgotten your mobile, its worse, feels like you have forgotten your underwear. The face to face interaction between us has reduced a lot because of gadgets. We spend way too many hours on the computer or mobile. Children prefer to play games on the computer, than to play outside sports. The sedentary lifestyle, the leaning chair hours, has reduced the health quotient.
  Dell has come with new range of Inspiron laptops, 14R and 15R, with 2nd  generation Intel core processors. Attractive feature is the personalized laptop lids, which you can change within seconds. Choose a colour that suits your personality. Whether or not, it will revitalize your personality, its for you to decide.

Colors of my life !!!

 Life is all about colors. We can so relate to everyday moods and happenings around you with the colors.
At times when there is poignant sadness, life is all black and dry.
When its filled with joy, its all fresh and yellow.
When you step up to make a new beginning, its blue and beautiful,
When you are happy and content about all your achievements in life, its a white and wonderful.
And When you seek to the almighty for help and happiness, he makes his presence felt like a rainbow.

Here is an old pic of my mom n dad's marriage.

I wonder, how it will look when filled with colors. The beautiful garlands, the colorful sarees, the showering flowers as blessings from people, the color of the ornaments, the color of camera flashes, the colorful people. My Mom n Dad have been my inspiration my entire life. Whenever im faced with problems in life, i look up to them, one smile on their face is enough inspiration for me.
Every joy, every sadness, they've been behind me to support me, physically and mentally.
And the fact is this picture is still beautiful without colors, because they are the color of my life !!!!

Adding a bit of color to your life is always beautiful. Here is how you can do that.

The Youth of India !!

Just watched the movie 'Shaitan'  by Bejoy Nambiar.  As much as the direction, story line and acting pleases the audience, the same dint stop me realize the antics of today's youth. Well the movie was really well made, its shown the reality that happens in the posh streets and colleges of mumbai, delhi and even bangalore. The movie portrayed the gory sight of youngsters, indulging with drugs and alcohol, leading to misguided perceptions and in the end terminating with untoward accidents.
  But where are we heading, the alcohol, the cigarretes, drugs, etc. are just misguiding the youth these days. Just few days back i was just walking past a famous mumbai college, i wouldn't name the college. As i walked past the college gate, past the narrow roads, that were adjacent to the college, saw some girls in the age group of 15-17 years, smoking cigarettes. Well obviously its none of my business, that the girls are smoking, but 90% of the youth take up to smoking, drinking and drugs, just to mingle in the crowd, just to show that they are cool, social and ready to take challenges. Research shows 80-85% of addictions start at 15-18 years of age. If parents act right at this age, to curb these tendencies, they can actually protect their children from long term addiction. Problem is we don't realize it at that age, but when we grow older, we start seeing the effects of it.
  Parents are also at fault for the behavior of their children. In the name of love and care, parents spoil the children with accepting all the child's wishes even though things are not rational. Spending hours together on computer, mobile, social networking and spending less time with parents, this is what happening at every home nowadays. The term Rich spoilt kids is not uncommon these days.
  We keep saying the future of the country is with the youth of india, well but its actually in the hands of individuals, who have matured out of their youth and ready to lead a responsible life and the country.
