Modern art vs Real art

vs 

















A few years ago, there was a huge craze for so-called 'Modern Art.' 
Modern Sculpture, Modern Painting, what not.

I started seeing too much about this stupidity in Mumbai, Hyderabad, etc.,

Modern Art  My definition: It looks bizarre, abnormal and does not involve any talent.

Take a look at these for yourself and judge:



This picture is of 'veiled lady' sculpture, a replica present at Salar Jung Museum.

I was stunned by its beauty because, at first look, the statue seemed as if there is a thin cloth draped on a woman's face.
It is pure solid marble!

This, I feel, is pure talent and I have not seen such a stunning art again. Probably this is from Rennaissance period.







What do you term this?  Even a child can do something better than this!












This is a painting -->



What is this? ->


Ugly, warped and depressing!

Maybe a stuff for so-called 'Intellectuals' but for sane people, bull shit!

Wikiwand - A very useful tool for a fabulous Wikipedia experience

There is no need to stress on the utility of Wikipedia. I am an avid Wiki reader and not a single day passes without me opening the website.

Somewhere I came across Wikiwand and tried it. Amazing! It became so handy and helpful to me that I decided to write a small post about it so that the readers can benefit from it.

Wikiwand - This Chrome extension tool is fantastic. It gives me an amazing experience while reading




The best and most useful feature of this tool is that if I hover my cursor on any hyperlink related to Wikipedia, a small preview window comes into view displaying a short description from the parent article.



This feature reduces the effort to look up each and every unknown term and is immensely useful.

Drones - Our Future

I got my inspiration to write this post as I was reading about Israeli drones which are currently being used by India in warfare.

 The technology used is really amazing! I wanted to put up a post about these amazing gadgets,

Israeli Drones:
I feel USA drones like predator, reaper, etc., are nothing in front of these Israeli suicide drones

Even though each drone is designed for a specific purpose, the strategic idea behind these drones is really amazing and noteworthy.

IAI Harop (Suicide Drone!)


 It is an anti-radiation drone that can autonomously home in on radio emissions. Rather than holding a separate high-explosivewarhead, the drone itself is the main munition. This SEAD-optimised UCAV is designed to loiter the battlefield and attack targets by self-destructing into them.[1] The drone can either operate fully autonomously, using its anti-radar homing system, or it can take a man-in-the-loop mode. If a target is not engaged, the drone will return and land i…

Shopify - A dream come true for merchants!

Writing this post after a long time...

I have recently experimented with this platform and I am really impressed with this platform and decided to write a post on this. So here we go:

Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, - These are all e-commerce platforms which changed our lives. They provide a wide range of products to customers around the world. But they do not provide all sorts of products.

Suppose you are a producer of a unique product like some hand-made soap, it is one thing to have your own showroom and trying to create sales. It is something else to sell online.

If you want to go sell online, there are few options like google shopping, these above mentioned platforms  or your own e-commerce website.

Having your own e-commerce is one of the best as you have complete control of your products, sales, etc and you can create your own unique brand.

But here comes the problem - You need to create a website hiring developers, maintain the website and everything else. Tooo difficult and costs …

Uber: A most fascinating business model for me!

It was a time when I was struggling with acute transport crisis. I was working in Mumbai. I had no transport of my own and the transport scenario was like this (No exaggeration):




Those were the days when a common man like me could not afford to travel in a taxi which costed around 700-800 rupees for a decent 30km travel with a minimum of 300rs for first 5 km. I was forced to travel in auto rickshaws like the one in the pic. Those guys, even though they had metering systems, tampered the meters, threatened public with strikes and regularly used to charge around 70 rupees for a mere 2 km. God forbid their atrocities in emergencies.

One fine day came Uber, as some god sent gift, into my life. Wow, just wow! cheaper than auto rickshaws, more comfortable than usual taxis. From then on, I became a loyal Uber user.



I was astonished to find many highly educated professionals with MBA degrees became Uber drivers. They earn a decent 60,000 rupees per month, more than a software architect.

Fair …
