World without Friction?

While covering Taqneeq the fest for OG, I participated in a Contemporary Writing competition. We had to write a short 60 word reply for “Innovative usage of Lie Detector machine” and a long one on “How would the world be if there was no friction, show your creative angle … ?”

For the lie detector I suggested using it to testify people filling their Tax Returns, and for My opinion of World Without Friction here we go:

No friction? It’s hard to imaging the world as if they were slipping on a gigantic piece of Ice. Though Ice-Skating isn’t my hobby, things would have moved really fast without friction. This brings me to the utility aspect of  this scenario. If we could channelize and productively utilize this speed, we could create wonders. Traveling and logistics would have been a breeze (Wow, that would have meant no traffic in Mumbai!).

Even sports events would have been visualized with a completely different vision. Gravity would have ruled  the sports-In my opinion. Much like the games I play on my gravity sensing iPhone (hmm, seems like Steve Jobs had a dream of world without friction a few years back).

And on a lighter note, how about education? Wouldn’t it be great if all our notes slip into our brains without any friction :D. Even businessmen would love transacting their receivables without any friction.

All said, what would you do about the friction that stops you from thinking??

Made a WindSurfer!

I would be home in December recovering from an Ligament tear (ankle), and so I got loads of free time to play around. And here is one of the geek stuff I made … A WiFi range booster that works GR8!

Now I can confidently roam around anywhere in my house enjoying the convenience of WiFi. Anyone looking for a similar solution? Well I might get the tutorial on OnlyGizmos or I might even make one for you 😉 – Just give me a buzz!

Do what you love? (Want to be good at?)

We live in a very difficult society. The moment a kid passes out of college you will see all aunties, uncles and any other tom dick and harry asking him and his parents  – So what are you doing? What plans? Job? Mba? Marriage :P? What?

hmmm … If you cannot relate to what I am saying, all this creates a sudden environment of pressure. Its a rat race, actually a DOG race. So is it necessary for one to start planning so deeply as soon as he graduates? Not really! IMO

Moon, Venus, Jupiter caught on Camera

Ok, Not everyday do I get an opportunity to nourish the amature photographer in me. And here today I had the opportunity to click a few amazing shots as Venus, Jupiter, Moon appeared in conjunction tonight. The same was visible for just 2 hours and I managed to make the most out of the last 20 mins. The photos are downstairs.

Just to please the gals…

Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don’t want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they’re amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who’s brave enough

to climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree
