Looking at the gizmos, airplane, high rise buildings, light and fire, i am overwhelmed to imagine how the mankind has developed from nomads to civilized. From praying to moon (which women do even today - more so after Yash Raj made it glamorous) to making an abode on moon - the development is phenomenal.This evolution is fueled by ideas more than anything else. It was an idea to have something what we now call 'currency'. It was an idea to stay in houses. It was an idea to have institution of marriage. I was an idea to have  countries. It was an idea to wear clothes. And these ideas were, mostly, responses to problems.

Evolution is like any other office work. There are an almost infinite things to do. We need to prioritize. So, we first invented fire, then shelter and then Internet. In our day-to-day life we come across several problems, crib about several things. While traveling in trains and buses, while using html tags on Gtalk, while reading that the food grains are rotting in the repository and that India ranks alarmingly poor in hunger index on the same newspaper - while taking every breath we find things imperfect and we think of a solution to address them.

But, we most of those ideas remain ideas which no one knows about. I plan to use this blog to vent out such ideas which i conceive. Take inputs from the readers and make them open source!

To quote George Bernard Shaw:

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple.  But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

So, I urge you to email me (given on the right sidebar) your ideas and i can put it up for you. This way you would not only vent your idea out but also it would be saved of disappearing from your mind. Moreover, you never know if you get get buyers/partners! Essentially, i would like to use this blog as a forum for exchange and incubation of ideas.

PS: I am going to continue with my musings on movies, politics, society, tea and refrigerator cover. This is additional area i would like to introduce.

Nice to see the diversification in your blogs...

One idea that always disappear from the mind is the Mutual fund concept.

Hope we will start working on it soon
