"e" commerce is bigger than E-commerce

Every one is probably associated with the term E-commerce. It is the business done online in any form.
From an Indian perspective E-commerce has come long way from a revenue of around some millions of dollars to near around billion dollars.

But the one that Iam going to discuss in this article is not that E-commerce, but it is the other e-commerce which every one is dreaming about i.e. "ecology" commerce.

What.. ecology.. and commerce?

Isn't ecology destroyed by booming business and commerce, and hence any increase in business will lead to ecological damage...So how is there e-commerce.

We know about Global warming which is happening because of the increased pollutants into the air by industries. Now these emissions, called as carbon emissions, have to be reduced in order to reduce the rate of increase of global warming.
So, a concept called as carbon trading has been introduced near around a decade ago.
Here, industries are allocated certain share in the amount of CO2 that th…

Ideas-I

The raison d'ĂȘtre of this blog was that, whenever I come across with any stupid or weird thought I can simply put it down.

But, so far I've been only posting my thoughts but not any of my stupid ideas:).

SO, let me begin with one of them that just splashed across.

What if we have a monitor which displays different things depending on the person who is watching it.

Say in an organization I have a very wide screen on the top of the wall, and say, I have some goggles kind of stuff, or I have some sensors detecting the light rays coming from say X person.

The moment these light rays are detected, the display is only of the things pertaining to that person. Similarly for persons y and z as well.

Imagine a single wall and every one staring at the wall and working.:)..

It can be extended to many folds. Even for bill boards if the technology is intelligent enough to identify the age group/sex or whatever criterion that can be configured of the person who is watching the bill board, it will d…

Barriers

Nowadays isn't everything about globalization? Or is it only talk and not action?

Are people really interested in globalization?

What does globalization stand for...? No physical barriers.. or is it like worlwideweb, where everyone has firewalls to allow people with permissions i.e. the boundaries become virtual.

History dates long back.. and the one that reminds us of what big walls are built is obviously the so called "Great" wall of china.


But, the trend is going the other way round.

Every one though that the break down of the Berlin Wall was a hallmark in the history of globalization, but things went topsy-turvy. It was the beginning of construction of lot bigger barriers...the behemoth of all the walls being constructed is the Isreal Palestine dividing wall.. It stretches for around 800 kms nearly.

Next is the proposed wall between US and Mexico... US wants to protect its boundaries from the illegal immigrants of Mexico...

India is also constructing a barbed wired wall b…

Now...why Marry in the first place?

Is marriage a license to satisfy bodily desires?
Is marriage a provision to acquire a partner for lifetime?

Does marriage really act like an agreement between two mutually adjustible parties?

Or is it that one of the members comprimises and is forced to comply?

Our religious scriptures say that marriage is an activity for the culmination of two bodies eventually to give birth to children. The clause is raising children. As I mentioned earlier, this explanation itself was enough to justify the marriage system.

Earlier People had patience and belief in the system. Every one would abide by the existing practices in the society.
Yester years have gone by and every one knows the ground reality, and we are still planning to marry. And marriage has become synonymous for one to be assumed as sane. ( Has it? ).

On a more personal front...
I believe I owe everything to parents, coz, my existence itself is because of them. So to take care of them is my duty.

When I have a very broad vision or a plan to …

Having children..What will it give us?

Has any one thought about why should some one have children after marriage.
Why should people be so desperate to bring a concrete shape to their sperms and eggs?

With such huge burgeoning population and its related problems ( At least within the scope of this article Iam not going to consider that huge population is a boon ) should people be still looking forward to having children?

What purpose do children serve?

Iam not a critic of the existing activities/practices in our society and Iam assured that there are more underlying reasons than the ones that are being projected behind many things.

But some of the activities presented in our religious scriptures, as is understood by the general sections of the society, may be outdated or to put it correctly may be misunderstood and misinterpreted.

For example having children...Earlier with very less human population and a very high rate of fatal diseases it was nothing but obvious to have as many children as possible. Added to that were the le…

Partying...stress reliever.. is it?

This article is the result of an introspection done yesterday.

Yesterday, there was a celebration and a DJ night in the office campus, owing to some sports celebrations.

There was a band which played some songs and after the initial inertia everybody started dancing. Even I wanted to join the dance floor, and approached there with the other colleagus of mine (Male :) )...

But, I felt as if something was stopping me from dancing...Even when I was dancing I knew I was dancing because Iam trying to grab attention rather than dancing for the sake of it. Something was stopping me badly from so called freeing up myself.

I felt really out of place. Looking at the people who were dancing, I wondered if they were really enjoying the dance.

Even when I was in US or Malaysia most of the times I'd never dance because it freed up my mind or because it relieved me from stress.

I've been always this reserved person when trying to do things for myself. I cannot feel myself out of the world when in …
