All the technology available can't substitute the Human connection

Sometimes it is said that the world has become small and with technology you can contact anyone anytime.

At least in theory that is true. Particularly within your family it is true if you use social networking apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Hangouts, Viber, Skype, or BBM, etc you have a lot of possibilities to be in touch with your near and dear.

While you may use different apps for different groups of contacts - perhaps WhatsApp for friends, BBM for office colleagues, Hangouts or Skype or Viber for family - there will be times when despite all your technology you fail to reach some people at the right time.

Because all that depends on the device in your hands and the devices in the hands of your people.

One bad signal from the mobile network coverage puts a person out of reach. Then there are battery issues of the gadgets, weak WiFi reach, etc.

Another issue is the lack of knowledge of the people in managing the settings, optimization and a little common sense!

All these factors make the technology useless at times. Because the effective use of technology is always possible only through proper use of human brain!

But the technology has penetrated so deep into our lives that people are seen many times worried about number of likes or comments received on Facebook or Google+ or about the followers count on Twitter. This is bad.

At the end of all of this thinking, one thing that can be understood and agreed is that nothing beats the positive feeling you get when you have the chance to meet people personally in the real life, to spend your time with family and friends.

Your little daughter's or son's smile experienced directly is more worth than a million likes for a photo on Facebook.

A sincere compliment received from your close friend, a pat on your back by your father staying with you every day, have more worth than thousands of compliments received on Social networking sites.

Technology helps but only partially. It is like having something instead of nothing.

Because the Humans have the divine energy in them and when you are around with the people whom you like and who like you, you are experiencing that divine connection knowingly or unknowingly.

Technology minus Human connection is like having a beautiful artificial flower plant on your table sans fragrance!

Loving Windows 10 Mobile for its great compatibility and Universal Apps despite the App-gap

I have been using Windows 10 on my Lumia smartphones for the last 6 months. I'm very much impressed with the hard work done by Microsoft. First Windows phone I used was with Windows 8 which was a bit different and difficult compared to Windows 8.1. However coming from Blackberry Curve 9300, it was a great welcome OS. The Windows 8.1 stole the show with very fluid, stylish and simple design.
Windows 10 mobile started off with lot of bugs and hits and misses, but that is how any development work happens. The difference is that Microsoft chose to provide these builds for public use if they join the 'Windows Insider' program.
I became an insider and have been enjoying Windows 10 since then. At first, after a few days of experiencing the builds I switched back to Windows 8.1 considering that I had only one Lumia then and I was using it for the office work. As the Windows Insider program states that those risks shall be 'understood' and the primary phone is not reco…

Oh My God - Bollywood movie with a True message

I watched Bollywood movie "Oh My God" few days ago on Youtube (hope that was the official channel). It was excellent!

Maybe some orthodox people think that it was blasphemy. But as far as I know blasphemy concept doesn't exist in Hindu philosophy and I'm very happy about it.

At no point of time in the movie, the belief on God was questioned! The blind belief and meaningless customs and traditions were questioned!

I have watched this movie and laughed wholeheartedly at various scenes! Maybe the people with blind beliefs on God might have got hurt very badly! It is their problem.

Zuari Cement, Italcementi, CTG and 11 years of experience

Few things in life are so evident and so attracted to our lives in hindsight! My association with M/s. Zuari Cement (the erstwhile Texmaco Cement) and with M/s. Italcementi Group has been a good example of one such unconscious connection since my childhood.

I'm generally a good observer of things and I've developed this skill over time that I learnt most of the things I use at my work place or at home looking and observing how many other people were doing better than me at that particular point of time.

I am particularly fond of looking at the logos and remembering the brand names since my childhood.

The old Texmaco logo of 'Ramaiah' mason (mestri as called in Telugu) with a spade in hand was the symbol of their cement factory. This advertisement and branding was so popular during the years of 1990s that whenever we used to travel to Yerraguntla from Proddatur for taking the 'Rayalaseema' express to Hyderabad.
