Happy 40th Birthday Rubik’s Cube!

Santosh

It is really hard to imagine if anyone’s childhood went past without playing Rubik’s Cube. More than solving it, it’s the splendiferous colour pattern that makes it fascinating, at least for the kids. They just love to roll over the blocks again and again, and they don’t care much about solving the puzzle, which is 1 out of 43,252,003,274,489,856000 ways! And even if someone out of his sheer intelligence or mere coincidence does solve it, what are his chances of knowing the permutations and combinations? Or for that matter, who really knows the minimum number of steps starting from the beginning to solve the Rubik’s cube puzzle is 20? No commoner! We just love to play Rubik’s Cube. That’s the beauty of one of the most loved noetic toy of last century. It is quite concerning that it has lost its occupancy recently, thanks to the ever growing inclination of people towards social networking sites.

To state the fact, even I forgot about this cube for years until recently I heard that it turned forty years old. Ironically, it was from one of the Facebook’s page which reminded me that yes, such a thing still exists! It’s a big shame that this ‘toy’, which had made millions of minds crazy in 80s, or on which hundreds of book been written off, or which is the most skilled and ultimately most sold puzzle toy ever made, is a forgotten thing now!

Well yes, thanks to Google doodle that it again caught its interest on millions of people, who just like me are reminded of their glorious days with Rubik’s Cube. Take a break people. Have a little break from your routine activities, however habitual they are and have this magical cube in your hands once again, which you might find in your old case or in your storeroom resting dusty. Vivre à nouveau!

3D Printing : A Revolutionary Invention!

Santosh

Just imagine you design a digital model of your house and within some hours, your ‘real’ house is ready and steady! Now if you think this could only be possible in your wildest dreams, then you are all wrong.  University of Southern California has developed this path breaking technology, called Contour Crafting. Though it is still not available for commercial use, but this 3-D printing technology is clearly bespeaking of an offset of a new era. Just like what computers did in 1950s, internet in 80s, and mobile phones in 90s, 3D printer is going to be THE future. Yes, this harbinger is known!

So, how does a 3D printer work? 3D printing is actually a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. The printer constructs objects – from the bottom to top by adding materials. With each pass of the 3D printer’s motorized head, the device adds a thin layer of material – be it liquid, powder, metal or any other material (annotate them with ink) until the object is complete. Products can sometimes take more than 10 hours to print.

The production of 3D printers in small scale level has already begun. The first 3D printer was designed by Chuck Hull of 3D Systems Corp. in 1984. Since then, there has been a substantial development on this technology. Today, ceramic products are easily made using 3D printers. But we want to make shoes, giant electronic gadgets and even a house using 3D printers! And so, the research is ON. Even with such limited accessibility and throttled noesis of this technology, the current market of 3D printers is worth 2 billion dollars!

Currently, 3D printing companies are aiming to wreak its product for making chairs, toys, jewellery, and mainly home décor. However obscure it seems, even printing food is under consideration! Apparently, the biggest problem this discipline is facing is current technology. But the growth is inevitable. Given the current trend and the way new companies are coming up to contrive better 3D printers, this technology is sure to endure in coming days.

The Last Minute Thrill…

Santosh

It all seemed to be a great day – idyllic weather accompanied by drizzles, as I bucketed along down the Bhopal railway station to catch the running train. It was already 4:53 PM and the train led off its wheels at 4:50 sharp. I asked my legs to festinate so to catch the accelerating train. I ran like a perpetrator chased by a dog! During this catch-the-train jaunt I was reminiscent of the famous DDLJ scene – Kajol chasing a running train only to find Shahrukh Khan’s hand to barge in, and ultimately edifying an epic love story! Only it was a boy this time giving a chase. Obviously, that didn’t happen and apparently I was a fool to think of such an exemplary shot! The chase was still on and I hated it to be Kareena’s Jab We Met moment.  The train was still hustling ahead of me, and….

time management

And I know I am describing this more dramatically. So to cut it short, I did catch the train at last. I suspired loudly before taking my seat. I closed my eyes for two minutes and wanted everything to settle down – my heartbeat, sweat, breath and the heat. Time managed to conciliate all these, and I was back to my normal nous. Fancy enough, I did enjoy this last minute hiccups!

My father – a strict disciple of time and punctuality always taught me to be on time, no matter how minuscule the purpose is. He always wants me to reach station half an hour before the departure time, or fifteen minutes before an exam. That’s completely legit and I abide by it.  But the last minute enigma has its trance too. What’s life if it is nothing but a time-table?  7 AM breakfast, 9 AM College, 12 noon lunch, 5 PM home, 8 PM dinner and 10 PM sleep. What is so gratifying about this ‘chaste’ schedule? Where’s the thrill element? Of course, you don’t want to miss your career deciding exam or go late for your interview. Time’s pregnant in such crucial stages.  But leaving aside these junctures, there won’t be any catastrophe if you go late by five minutes for your class. Instead, you always get some attention!

Chasing a running train, going five minutes late for a meeting, ten minutes delay for a lecture class, missing the first five minutes of a movie and chewing over on what might had happened in those five minutes – Yes! These are one of the lot thrills and chills of life. The mystery, the climax – ‘What would happen if I am going to miss this?’  Yes, that should endure!  Even Biology says a human body requires some thrills, some shocks, and lot of adrenaline for its proper functioning. So why not give our body what it wants and not make it a boring time punctual machine?

This may sound condescending to many people. But I do have an explanation. A foolish will go late for all occasions. A timely person will always be disciplined and punctual (respect). A smart person will not be in any hurry; rather he will do things patiently and swimmingly by respecting the grandeur of time. And if by chance, he becomes late or get receded – will act accordingly to do what needs to be done. Adding to that, he will fully savour the moment. I do believe that in life if we miss something, we also gain a lot of things.

I have seen people who set alarm at 4 in the morning, and wake up ten times at night just to make sure it isn’t past four. I just want to ask them a question, why are you so afraid of time? I am not questioning their ideology, but their dreadfulness. Being punctual is one thing, but getting ghosted by this punctuality is a disastrous thing.

That day, when I became late to board my train, it wasn’t any deliberate act. There were reasons for my tardiness. But when I finally got into the train and hopped over my seat, I was sang-froid at my best – THE LAST MOMENT THRILL had made my expedition quite an expedition!

Just A Pure Expression Of LOVE…

By Hetal Kanwar

 

Our love is so pure,
Our love is so serene…
You are the only one who loves me so truly..
Whose love for me is surreal,
Whenever my soul…
My heart….misses u…
Not a word I utter…
But just drop a tear…
Miss you my love…
My eyes looks for you everywhere…
And when finally you are with me…
There’s nothing this soul fears …
There are no undue worries..
There are no more tears!
Ha ha you’re like my favorite Johnson baby…
“No more tears”
Love you my sweet heart..
Love you no matter what..
Love you like anything…
Just keep smiling baby…
‘Coz I love u my love…

I_Love_you
