Moshi Moshi

Speaking to someone long distance has changed so much. Earlier it was the fixed landline telephone everywhere and it still continues to be the major instrument in developing countries. It was one of the greatest technological invention that gave people the capablity to talk to people all over the world without traveling to the receiver’s place. Then the cellphone came and got rid of most of the wires and gave the convenience of mobility & personalization to its customers.

The invention of the internet improvised many industries. All the communication in the telephonic industry is being digitized giving rise to many applications and at the same time it is bringing down the cost of communication. Gadgets which can hook up to the local WIFI or computers connected to the internet are increasingly becoming the new interface through which we communicate all over the world. It is also bringing a host of features with it like video capibility, low call rates, digital clarity, unlimited storage. (Check out Skype, it can also talk to landlines, cellphones and the other way round too over the internet infrastructure)

As in the case any technological innovation, the internet has had disruptive effects in the telephone industry (companies, regulating & other government bodies, customer), which ultimately however has given benefit to the customer. The West has been quick to adopt technology changes in the telephony industry and pass on the benefits to the masses. However the East has been slow to pick up on this. As communication being the most important ingredient in any of the social, economical or political dealings, it is imperative for us to open & dereugalarize this industry as far as possible giving a host of new possibilities to the masses.

Happy Moshi Moshi in the future!

Human Organization

Human Organization

Considering our history, mankind has developed various ways to identify & organize themselves into a particular group for further enrichment and improvement. There are many of these groups formed in the past centuries – Socialism, Capitalism, Facisism, Marxism, Communism, Democracry, Religion, Casteism. Socialism was developed in the industrial sector for enrichment of the labour class. Religion, which evolved several thousand years ago, is one’s orientation of life according to a particular faith and ideas. The caste system further refines the orientation of one’s life according to the framework laid down by that caste. And so on…

Most of these organization structures brought a revolution with them and then became a part of us. Some of them became obsolete but do still exist in some form or the other. Everyone of us wears one or the other of these layers (or mask) as we live our life. And our views become biased in our social, economical, political relationships according to the layers we wear. Every layer has its peak time and then these layers become outdated and a burden. A revolution then comes by and a new order or a organization structure comes into being. Most of the times these revolutions are turbulent, but is necessary for our evolution & progress. For example, Religion evolved several thousand years ago and is a way or systematic approach towards life. It offers many benefits like offering well laid out paths to lead one’s life. However, one must think before choosing this path. Whether one wants to follow this path at all? Most of the time, the majority of us take this path based on our ancestors choice. There are many religions and each religion peaked and caused quite a stir and turbulence in the history of mankind.

The earlier organization structures or layers (like Religion) do exist but they do mellow down and weave themselves into the fabric of mankind. Each organization structure has its advantages sometimes and can be a hindrance the other times in our dealings. One has to choose!
