striking balance

plastic, the word without which I think most ppl cant imagine their lives. It' s so sad to believe this hard truth but it's a fact which we seldom realize. Go to shopping and you will end up having more plastic than what you shop. But including me, I can only minimize the usage of plastic but cannot avoid it completely. The fact being that it has become so involved in our lives that we don't even realize that we are using it. Ok, now look at the alternatives you have, may be jute/cloth bags. Oh common, that's so expensive. And again more cloth bags mean more trees brought down and how is that?? I feel that there's a limit to any resource, wear n tear happens to almost anything, like our own body. So the question pops out, are we on the verge of loosing everything that we have ? Man tends to use the same thing again and again without realizing the quantity nature provides us. We tend to judge things based on the comfort level most of the times. And this reminds me, someone should be there to restrict the usage of things, which are half utilized already. And again someone should always find an alternative before we reach that half level, am I making sense? I hope! I hope I should become that someone who is wise and cautious enough of the things nature has in store for us..

Understanding What Is Automation In Today's World

What is automation? Does it mean killing the beauty of human nuances in a handicraft? Or does it mean changing the face of how we manufacture many things? What is automation, really? When you type the words, 'what is automation?' and search online, the results include worlds apart meanings, such as -"the use or introduction of automatic equipment in a manufacturing or other process or facility" and "unemployment due to the spread of automation." An engineer might prefer the former answer, while a sculptor might favor the latter!
Let's ponder a bit...
What is automation to an engineer could be completely different from, what is automation to a sculptor! Although the answers might turn out to be exact opposites, may be there is a need to refine our question from 'what is automation?' to 'What is automation with respect to basic necessities of life?'

That brings us to the need of addressing what is automation as per the context? And when w…

When The Wings Are Ready, Let Them Fly

Once upon a time, my major thoughts were about potty! I know it sounds crazy but any parent with a toddler would understand, trust me, really! I used to fidget about how to get this boy potty trained!
What is the rush for? I wonder how we tend to get unnecessarily worked up about the child's current stage and do not patiently wait for his age to take over certain developmental milestones? Why are we always in a hurry and why do we keep saying, "Hurry up, it's getting late!". If you observe closely, sometimes we get late because of adults and not kids and yet kids do not complain. As adults it is our responsibility to plan and provide the environment in such a manner that things tend to go smoothly and avoid any disappointments of getting late or missing something. Why should a child hurry all the time? Also, have we questioned ourselves what great harm it can cause if we do not say, "hurry up!"?

One day the boy was clearly getting late to school and still …

Parenting Tales - Luck Is Overrated & Happiness Is Acquired

Hey there! It has been such a long time I wrote here and it feels so good to be back. While the look and feel and reach of blogs have been transformed while I was away, one thing remained constant and that is content. End of the day, we all read when the content appeals to us, when the content stays with us, keep popping out of our minds when we are busy with something else, when it resonates with our persona and current phase of life.

If you are a parent and dealing with new parenting trials every day then yes my thoughts resonate very much with you - our content is the same :) Let me make you feel jealous/happy for a bit now! Recently, during many interactions I was quoted as a 'lucky parent' and I felt the need to write why it is not so on most occasions. Sooner, you will know why.

My child is 5 years now and below are certain things that happen as a rhythm and part of his lifestyle.

1. He is the first one to wake up at home by himself, early in the morning, around 6-6:30 …
