Back to the future!

Back to the future is a classic American science fiction film where the teenager Marty travels back in time to meet his future parents. Dis-pleasured by his ever-quarreling parents he travels back to make them fall in love all over again with each other. A movie that is so easily liked by kids, teenagers, adults and the oldies. It simply is timelessly wonderful. Something that reminded me of this movie a few days back was this app that is going so viral – the faceapp. An app that helps your face travel in time. It helps you modify the way you looked in the past, or travel to future and help you feel how you might look in your old days. I just thought would try it out and downloaded it. I was having some fun trying it out and I never realized how my daughters, mother and the house help got involved and we exchanged some giggles, chuckles and astonishment. The photos below gives all the reason for us to burst out into laughter.

This app which is build on AI not only managed to entertain us but also put me to thoughts and travel through my imaginations. I am sure there would be time when a time machine would be a reality, probably that would be a time when I may not exist. I wonder how messed up things would be then. Everybody wanting to change life the way they want it and entangled in others and their own modifications. I was pulled back from my imagination to the present when my younger daughter nudged me to bind her textbook.

Few things are best left in its true natural form without human interventions I thought as I continued attending my daughter. However there is no harm trying an app that can bring some humor into life and help capture those moments. Did you capture your moments? Try it right now, its free.

The kitchen I fell in love with!

It was a cloudy morning, as I watched the sky through the balcony window after getting up. I hoped Mr. Sun to be a little kind to spread his shine that day and rushed to finish my morning miscellaneous work. By 6:15 am, I checked my mobile to find a missed call. I did not bother to call back since I was already on my way to the lady’s house who had called up. I reached her house by 6:30. am. She was busy finishing up her morning stuffs and took another 5 mins and then got into the passenger seat of my car.  “I called you up, and then I called your land line. Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

Bengaluru Calling! the pull factors of migration.

(Migration to Bengaluru - how the problem of population due to migration be solved was a topic of assignment for our creative writing class. Bangalore being home for me this is how I look at it.) It’s not every place on earth where bright sunlight lashes on the face and the cold breeze chills the body at the same time. Not every place can exercise diversity. From early morning variety dosa to late night smoke breaks; From temple walks to bike rides; From pool side beer to traffic in the burning sun; From non-stop chats to serious weekend talks; From street beggars to IT jobbers; From theatres to multiplex cinemas one can see extremes in any aspect chosen. Such a free city is ‘Namma Bengaluru’, and that is why a lot of people hope to come here. So, evidently there are many economic, social, and physical pull factors why people migrate to Bengaluru.  The first thing is a ‘brain-drain’ of IT hub. However, Bengaluru is not only IT capital but also capital of aeronautics, automot
