Youthquake!!!!

Hey guys it’s me, your favourite blogger!!! Today’s post is all about Youthquake, don’t worry it’s not some new natural calamity or another ” covefefe” incident.  No, Youthquake is the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year !!! Now you’re probably wondering, ” Ok, but what does youthquake even mean?”. Well, the Oxford pocket dictionary defines the word Youthquake as:

A significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people.

And you have to admit, it does have a nice ring to it. But seriously this is an amazing word & what I love about it, is that it accurately describes the new era that has dawned upon mankind. I mean, I am now a new species, as a matter of fact, everyone in my generation is a new species, Homo Sapien Sapien or ” Futuristic Man”.  This doesn’t mean that we have an extra pair of arms & legs or a 3rd eye, no it just means that our bodies & brains are very slightly different from the generations before us. They are more focused, more adaptive & are better configured to move in synchrony with the new, more technology-oriented world.

You have to admit, though that the youth are becoming more & more involved in matters that have global or at the very least, national impacts. From the Jallikatu protests here in Tamil Nadu to the Catalonia movement in Spain, it appears that we the youth, want to be recognized. We want our voices to be heard, our opinions taken seriously. We are a generation filled with keen problem solvers, leaders & those who will not take “no” for an answer.

Some say that the youth aren’t ready, that they haven’t seen the outside world, they know not the complications & conundrums that this world poses. But that is what makes us so deadly, the very fact that we aren’t ready.

Let me propose a simple thought experiment. Imagine a busy, crowded road, outside a school & imagine a child, with a heavy schoolbag, tired after a long day of school who has to cross this chaotic mess & reach his Bus, which is about a block away & is set to leave within 10 minutes. Now as an adult, this situation will puzzle & frustrate the best of you. But a child, has only 1 objective, getting from Point A to Point B as soon as possible & he will do anything to get there. He will climb over cars, he’ll weave through the sea of motorcyclists, he’ll use by lanes that no one knew existed & he will get to his destination.

Same rule applies here , while adults have to struggle though the red tapes of bureaucracy, children can mobilise the masses, start quick response teams & fix buildings with just a snap of their fingers. However, there is one drawback. This natural instinct to belong , to change the world is often curtailed as its seen as immature & utopian. Now there is some merit to this, sometimes kids tend to go overboard for the wrong reasons or the wrong causes. This is where we need adults, to help reign us in when our good intentions are for the wrong causes. That is how Life was designed to be like, But now, over the years, the scales have shifted severely in favour of the adults.

But there is hope, several people are now awakening to the possibility of a balanced society, a society where the voices of youth aren’t muffled, but heard & accepted , a society where there is mutual growth & understanding between the youth & the adults, a society which truly embodies the ideals of “Pro pace et fraternitate gentium”  

Before I sign off, I happened to notice that the comment box in my blog has been awfully silent for some time, so maybe you can help me fix that? So hope you guys enjoyed this post & are eager for more!! Till next time, Farewell!

We are currently collaborating with some of the the worlds greatest firms and companies to produce the most cutting edge technology that will change the future of mankind and the earth for the better.

We are working with Antrix* (the commercial arm of ISRO) to provide the world’s satellites, space stations, rockets and shuttles with the most advanced software and hardware, to help us understand this universe in a way we never could have never imagined. We are in partnership with Honda* to provide vehicles with greener fuels, more accurate and advanced GPS, control, safety features. We are working in unison with WWF* (World Wildlife Fund) in producing the most accurate and durable radio and tracking chips. We are also working on an efficient  and reliable poacher locating system to help identify and capture poachers. We are also helping them locate children and people who need education in wildlife preservation. We are also in unison with UNICEF* in providing water purity testers, water purification systems (for rejuvenating lakes, rivers, ponds etc., not for drinking water). We are working with The Indian government* in creating a efficient and eco friendly garbage collection and disposal mechanisms.

Enough about our enterprising achievements, what have we done for our consumers? Well surprise, surprise, we are rolling out our latest smart phone wing, Impala! Impala is  is no amateurish stunt, oh no, this is a roaring machine that is going to take the world by storm. Kitted with our latest Phoenix software and hardware which is as unique and indigenous as ever, we are ready to go, go, go! The first Impala phone, the Impala O9X, is all set to roll out by late August. But the biggest surprise is yet to come. We have a contract as sponsors for a certain football team. Guess who they are?

The Man with the Plan

Mobile phone is no longer a mere accessory, but an office in our pocket” were the words in reply to a question on how mobile technology has changed our lives.

But what about IT (Software), what is its future?” asked one of the tech guy.

IT alone cannot help shape the world, it should and will bond with biotechnology and nanotechnology to form an unified form of technology that will create wonders that we have not even begun to imagine” came the reply.

The manager began to scribble down furiously, he knew this was good stuff. The five assembled in the room other than myself were notably impressed, but this was to be expected, for what else will you expect when in a private meeting with a world famous Indian. But they weren’t gonna give up and neither was I.
