             The Trick to Manipulate Your Own Mind 

One thing I've learned up to this point in life is that the mind has a memory. And it's damn smart; it "subconsciously" recognizes patterns. Once the patterns become a habit, it's hard to stop. It requires extra mental strength to break the habit. 

"Starting from small, it becomes big." 
  • Starting with white lies, repeatedly, you become a compulsive liar.
  • Starting with shoplifting a lipstick, repeatedly, you become a thief.
  • Starting with faking documents, repeatedly, you can become a white collar criminal.
  • Starting with being dishonest, repeatedly, you become a cheater.

At the same time...
  • Starting with exercising at least 3 times a week, repeatedly, you become fit.
  • Starting with eating healthy everyday, repeatedly, you become well and healthy.
  • Starting with walking with your back straight, repeatedly, you have an elegant posture.
  • Starting with smiling and being positive, you become a happy person to be around inside and out and attract people with the same energy to you.
  • Starting with giving unused clothes and loose change to the homeless, repeatedly, you become empathetic and giving.
  • Starting with sharing things with others, repeatedly, you become generous.
  • Starting with only doing things that align with your core values, repeatedly, you are a person of meaningful values.

  • Starting with reading, repeatedly, you become addicted to learning.
  • Starting with making sure you get what you need done for the day, repeatedly, you are always on top of everything.
  • Starting with being focused, each task at a time, repeatedly, you can easily get into the flow and be productive.
  • Starting with thinking outside the box, repeatedly, you become extremely creative.
  • Starting with getting out of your comfort zone, repeatedly, you become confident and fearless.

  • Starting with telling yourself what you want to achieve in life, repeatedly, you will get there.
  • Starting with just getting it started, repeatedly, anything you want to be and do, you can be and do.

                                Thank you Steve ..!

“This is a day I have been looking forward to for over 2 and a half years.  Every once and a while a revolutionary product comes along and changes everything…”–Steve Jobs

Profound understatement by Steve. On January 9th, 2007 by about 11am PST, the world got news of the iPhone.  In these seven years the world completely changed.   Multi billion dollar industries have been created around this device and his big brother, the iPad.

I can not think of a life or an industry in the US that is not directly impacted by what Steve showed the world on that day.

Just think of how the world will change in the next 7 years.

Thank you Steve and thank you Apple. 

Happy Birthday iPhone.

Entertain the idea ..!!!

We are all educated people here, at least if you're reading this, you are. We have learnt to use our mental faculties to judge the veracity of a statement and to take it for truth only if its accompanied with substantial evidence. That's all fine and always does serve well.

But what really baffles me is when people don't use the same criteria while rejecting an idea. People often reject an idea at a moment's notice, just because it doesn't conform with their existing knowledge - all that they've been taught to be true.

What most people don't realize is that between regions of 'acceptance' and 'rejection',  there lies another option - a very fine path of 'entertaining an idea'.

Its certainly not easy to tread this path - much like walking a tightrope. But if you can learn to tread the path - to entertain the idea and think about what if it were true, how it would relate and affect or perhaps contradict the other well-established theories, that would be the best exercise you can ever have to broaden your mental horizons.

So the next time someone tells you something that sounds outrightly ridiculous, spare a moment, entertain the idea.

Siddappa, An illiterate Farmer designs a Water Mill to generate Electricity (Somapur village, Karnataka)

Siddappa, an illiterate farmer from Somapur village in Gadag district of Karnataka, has designed a water mill to generate electricity. Right from conceptualizing to materialisation, the farmer has done everything on his own. He operates the water mill in the canal near his house.

Using timbers, Siddappa prepared a giant wheel that joined at a central hub. There are eight arms, five feet each, extending from the central hub. A plastic bucket is dangled at the tip of each arm. When the water from two pipes gushes into one of the buckets, it generates the pressure that turns the 10-feet wheel in an anti-clockwise motion. The bucket could also be spun in the horizontal plane using a central steering wheel, similar to a teacup ride. As one after another bucket is driven by the flowing water, the first arm declines back to the ground while the other rises in the air. This process spins the black wheel attached to this giant wheel. The spinning black wheel rotates another wheel connected to a dynamo.

A converter converts the Direct Current from the dynamo into Alternating Current. Siddappa claims to have spent a mere Rs 5000 on building the entire apparatus. This is his second attempt to show the villagers that anybody can produce electricity for self-consumption using the resources at hand. “Many people who have canals flowing near their villages don’t know how to use that natural gift. I want to show them all practically that electricity problems can be solved by being creative. There is no need to beg to the government for everything,” he says.

He gets 150 watts of power from this water mill when water flows in the canal. Siddappa claims he can create electricity for the entire village through his machine. But the problem is that the canal in his village flows only for three months a year!

I don't know if anyone is reading this blog. Because I haven't been writing anything!

Although I have a lot to say, in this new facebook & twitter world I somehow don't find the time to sit and do it...

An average blogpost would take me a day. A fb post takes 3 minutes. Twitter takes 30 seconds. Of course, writing a blog is more meaningful, more satisfying and has a much longer shelf life.

Yes, I must get back to blogging!

                               India Against Corruption ..!!

Yesterday afternoon I was looking for a good movie to watch on television. Instead, I found myself watching the men and women marching towards 7 Race Course Road, carrying the Indian Flag.

Who are these people who will spend their Sunday braving lathis and teargas shells? 

Why are they so determined, so daring, so dedicated to the cause of India Against Corruption?

What did they hope to achieve today?

I believe India Against Corruption is a revolution. In fact, it is a second war for independence and no such war was ever won in a day.

When Team Anna’s second anshan ran out of steam, the cynics muttered ‘I told you so’. In a way, watching them ‘fail’ is reassuring for the vast majority who have merely been onlookers.. It confirms that we did the right thing by not moving our butts.

Because ‘ultimately kuch nahin ho sakta hai.’

It’s true. Itni jaldi kuch nahin ho sakta hai. The vast, deeply entrenched and securely guarded edifice of corruption in our country cannot be brought down in a day. Or a month, or a year, or even ten years.

But that cannot stop those who believe it can and must be brought down. 

So far the IAC had but the passion of its foot soldiers. And the cannonball of media. Going forward, it will need new weapons, and tactics. 

How will this campaign of the people and by the people stretch its tiny funds to fuel its giant ambitions?

Nobody knows but faith will keep them going.

Faith that one day, you and me, and all the citizens of this great country will rise up and stand with them. Because, truth can and must prevail.
