Pure is not so sure but customization definitely is

If at all there is some free time, where is it all going for a full time mom? Most of it goes on internet and online shopping these days! There are 100 websites, 200 brands, 300 products, 400 likes, 500 comments, 600 reviews, 700 discounts, 800 free home deliveries.......please somebody stop it, am I really getting any help here? May be, may be not! No kitchen is complete without salt and this poor human being just wanted to buy some salt, spare me :( !! Yes this is no exaggeration dear ones, I just wanted to buy some salt along with other things during my online grocery shopping, on a sleepy tired day! and I ended up reading articles again! Again, but this time on which salt to buy! please do not LOL now! Pity me! And pity you! Because that salt gyan is actually required, to me and to all of you. I just got to know that salt is a mineral after all and first of all and not a spice! something that we use only to satisfy the taste buds actually is a mineral and not a mere seasoning. Now I get to see pure salt, natural salt, iodised salt, less sulphur salt, lite salt and the list never ends! And after researching on which salt actually one ought to eat, the answer is mostly none of the above. You should be eating some pinkish rock salt or sea salt which is healthy. And all the refined table salts are void of any minerals. Now the search begins to buy some healthy salt when I feel really sleepy and out on energy to do anymore shopping. So I thought blogging would actually make me relaxed, occupied, forget about salt, forget about everything else...if not everything at least about shopping, oops! Forget about salt, for that matter any other product, you name it and there are in-numerous options and customization made out of the simplest of things which you cannot live without. Refined is such a bluff in today's market, there is no such thing as purest form in refined things. Because purest things are always available in crudest form, and there are hardly any brands that manufacture it, apart from few organic products. I hope what the organic products are quoting is trustworthy, at least for the time being. Refined oils-bad, refined sugar-bad, refined salt-bad, energy drinks for kids-bad......just the time goes in filtering and trying to escape from all these bad things. I have realized that it is happy to be a kid only, mom will figure out on what to feed me! Now being a mom, I just can not give my kid anything to eat. Kids need to enjoy the occasional sugar candies, pastries etc but you feel guilty of not been able to give them good quality basic stuff to eat daily if refined world  rules us! Pure is just a myth these days, pure doesn't mean sure but it only means more customization to cater the needs of ever growing population.

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…

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 …

'No vote' is a welcome sign

After all, everybody has a right to vote and not vote, isn't it? If you don't vote does that simply mean you have lost the right to blame the government also? That's big debate! It is the right of a person not to vote, but that 'no vote' from the government is a welcome sign. If at all there is a 100% voting in India, I am sure in most places the 'no vote' wins the elections with greatest majority ever in the history of Indian elections! Oh that's not a good sign but! hmm what does that mean? Should the election commission go on conducting re-elections in those 'no vote' won areas? Don't you think they will enter a loop of conducting elections again and again? When does the government form? Lot of questions! It might not mean there are not any good leaders out there, but it definitely means people have lost the trust in the election candidates. So why not let people nominate their candidates as well, keeping a limit on number of candidates t…
