Are You Taking Part In The Smart Home Revolution?

Improvement is the constant endeavour humanity has been undertaking for eternity. The basic virtue of humans is to improve their well-being with the help of technology; from developing simple tools for hunting and gathering to directing Google Assistant or Siri order nice and warm food from our favourite restaurant, we’re on a relentless quest for easing out our life. That's why we are witnessing an undergoing transition from conventional technology into smart technology.

What Is Smart?

The popular definition of ‘smart’ is anything that is able to connect to other devices, or to the internet, and can be controlled remotely. But, with the latest technology coming every day, this definition might become obsolete sooner or later, what is going to be consistent is the reason why smart devices are being invented. And why you should be using it. A smart device, according to me, can be defined as something that saves your time for more productive or “humanly” activities.

A machine is supposed to ease up the manual load and lightens the overall workload, whether it is installed in a factory or in your home. We have a long list of devices, with their wide applications, that we call “Smart” — smartwatch, smart camera, smart light, smart speaker, etc. (the list is only going to increase). But wait, how can we forget the device that itself is a revolution? The smartphone. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to declare smartphone as the father of all other smart devices.

Smart Home Assistant

Assistants such as Google Home is a blessing. Besides functioning as a voice-controlled WiFi speaker, it also aids in the automation of lights and other home entertainment requirements. What gives this edge over other home assistants is the power of inbuilt Google search. You can ask questions about the weather, book flights, hotels, or movie tickets, or get news updates. Ok, Google, tell us the next revolutionary item needed for creating a smart home!

Smart Lights

The simple act of switching lights on and off can be annoying if you have to do it in the middle of doing something important. With smart lights, it can be scheduled or programmed with the sun. It can save energy that otherwise is wasted due to our negligence. These lights also come with colour changing feature which produces a stunning studio look to an erstwhile boring interior.

Smart Security

There is a various range of smart security devices up in the market such as smart locker, smart camera, smart doorbell, etc. which can aid you to achieve a sound sleep by giving you a worry-free life. These devices together make smart security promising to intimidate the intruders and protect your loved ones. Plus with so many smart devices at your place, you will need to have their smart security, don't you?

The Need For Smart Devices

Smart devices are not an absolute necessity like oxygen or water. But to enhance the way you live and to live a less worried life, a smart device becomes an essential addition in your home interior or exterior, for that matter. Had there be no urge to improvisation, also known as modernisation, we would've still have been living in the jungle, following the rule of the wild. Humanity reached here because of our relentless desire for improvisation and innovation. It is technology has made us truly superior.

Why Smart Market Is So Promising

Companies with a useful and productive product or simply innovation-oriented companies have a greater tendency to outperform their hitherto traditional counterpart. It is the key to the longevity of a brand which magnifies its value. If your product is useful and marketable, and if people really like it, you naturally have a monopoly in the market. Apple became highly popular because of Steve Job’s vision for smart technology with consistent innovations. Others followed the visionary. It is a famous quote of him: “innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

You might have observed some unnecessary features too under the garb of “smart” like WiFi kettle. It is because this segment is booming with innovators and consumers both loving it. People might not really need to boil water through a mobile device, do they? Anyway, innovation is all about showcasing inner madness. Like an art. Let us just see to what extent this “art” can mesmerize us making our lives easy.

But, technology howsoever may become smart, its owner will always be smarter. Just like people working under a topnotch businessman or a CEO are smart, but the credit always goes to the businessman or the chief, naturally making him smarter. It can also be said that he is “smarter” because he hired those smart people.

In the end, I would just like to state that smart products, with a formidable market, has undoubtedly changed the way people live by automation of routine, easily forgettable and annoying tasks with a simple click. It is a promising revolution aimed towards the timeless concern of humanity ― of improvisation and moving forward.

Sanjay Dutt Hero Or Villain? A Review Of Sanju Baba’s Journey As Both

The Sanjay Dutt biopic “Sanju” was released on 29th of June made by one of the best filmmakers of the B-town, Rajkumar Hirani. It was marketed as an “unbelievably true story”. Indeed Dutt’s journey is unbelievable. However, there have been many unbelievable personalities too such as Dawood or Osama. Sorry for comparing Dutt with Don and Terrorist. The drugs, booze, women, and AK 56 make Sanju a largely negative character in the real world. Not his fault, according to the film.

Some people say Sanjay Dutt doesn’t deserve a biopic as there are many “good” people, with their “good” work, that go unnoticed. The argument over whether Dutt deserves a biopic or not is inane. It’s like saying Dhoni’s biopic should have been made after his retirement. The truth is, biopics are made on interesting people, not the good ones, especially if it is of commercial in nature. If that interesting people is a negative character, it gets more publicity. Also, a “fictional” biopic cannot be real. Be it Da…

Making A Difference — Indian Media And Ravish Kumar

Today's Bulletin: Priya Prakash Varrier’s killing wink, Taimur’s daily schedule, 'Rashtramata' Padmavati, Donald Trump tweets, Different types of jihad - love jihad, hate jihad, cow jihad, North Korea’s ‘mental dictator’ Kim Jong Un's preparation for a nuclear war, and last, but not the least —An esteemed panel of 'alleged' experts and politicians engaging in an ‘alleged’ debate.
If you are a consumer of Indian media, particularly the news channels, you might have got the idea of what my opening words are and where I’m trying to point it. If you think, all mediawallahs (media personnel) are same, or that these are really important topics worthy of your time, you need to think again.

There is a 'proven' left-wing terrorist, and an atheist, perhaps, NDTV journo named Ravish Kumar who is different. The non-Hindi Indian states might not have heard his name. He is not interested in covering ‘big stories’, no loud debates, no panel of Pakistani alleged ‘defe…

The Sensational Case of Salman Khan and Black Bucks, After Two Decades Justice Served?

Before beginning, I would like to reiterate that Salman Khan is just a cinema star, nothing more nothing less. So leave celebrity worship aside and try to be pragmatic.

Salman Khan’s past was nowhere similar to his modern-day superhit films. Infamously known as the bad boy of Bollywood, he has been directly involved in criminal cases of pretty grave nature. Hit-and-run case, in which he allegedly under the influence of alcohol ran his car on the footpath in which one person was killed and four got injured. In that case, first his driver was made a scapegoat but a little while later, things became murky the result of which Khan was acquitted by the Mumbai HC in 2015. His relationship with Aishwarya Rai (Bachchan) fetched an excellent TRPs to our media, first with and rumours about their relationship, then with confirmed rumours, and even after the break-up, when former miss world accused him of harassing her. Black Bucks/Chinkara poaching case, about which this post is all about, and,…

The Triple Talaq Bill: A Final Step To Settle Gender Justice Debate Among Muslims

I’ve written a post earlier on the issue of triple talaq in June last year when the government opposed that in the Supreme Court. The SC held that talaq-e-biddat or instant triple talaq is unconstitutional, arbitrary and thus declared it void. Now, the legislation is being done with the continuation of the judicial declaration, with a triple talaq bill already been passed in the Lok Sabha and waiting to be passed in the Rajya Sabha. The bill shall provide a legal right to the Muslim women against this practice and make it a "criminal and non-bailable offence".

But, some Islamic scholars and ‘secular’ politicians are questioning the authority of the Parliament. Isn’t it the Legislature that is formally authorised to initiate and bring reform in the society? Triple talaq is an unjust practice that has been carried out in independent India which is shameful. This practice has been even discontinued in many sharia abiding countries. The parliament has only initiated the legisla…

The Padmavaat Circus — A Brief Summary

OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS, the nation has witnessed a bizarre issue. We have been battling with the question of whether a film should be allowed to screen or not. It is definitely a matter of concern if a movie is not allowed to be showcased, and even more if the makers and artists receive threats. But, don't you think we gave it more importance than what it really deserved? It certainly was not worthy of the space for prime time debates every single day as if it is the “only” thing India is concerned about.

From the beginning, I was appalled by the duration of time Padmavati remain in the news. After the news, they do a stupid TV debate about the same. We then also saw TV anchors giving a "no-objection certificate" to the movie happily. It was at a time when the film had not been even sent to the CBFC. But, there was a journalist/anchor who was showing the educational crisis in the country instead of a frivolous debate of whether Padmavati to be allowed to release or not.…

The Story Of World's Longest Human Chain - Bihar Manav Shrinkhla

On January 21, 2018, (the people of) Bihar assembled together to form a human chain, the manav shrinkhla. It was the world's longest human chain ever formed. Last year, exactly on the same date, Bihar had formed a similar human chain to show their firm stand against alcoholism. At that moment, it was also claimed and publicized as the largest human chain ever formed in the world. But this year, it has been covered only as a news and not discussed widely on the Op-ed page. So, probably I’m filling the spaces our mediawallahs has left empty.

For your information, a human chain is a demonstration by the masses to show political solidarity, for or against a cause, in which people link arms with one another to form a large chain. Usually, the organizers of such event put an exaggerated data to the public in order to show how genuine their concern is. Still, it's a universal method to win support and encouragement of the public.
We can say that Bihar government has actually celebrat…
