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.

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…

Bhabhiji Ghar Par, Jijaji Chhat Par— A Review Of India's Comedy Serials

Indian television has been doing great with serials like Bhabhiji ghar par hai (Sister-In-Law Is At Home), May I come in Madam, and the latest in the fray, Jijaji chhat par hai (Brother-In-Law Is At The Terrace). However gross these may sound, but it seems to be the reality of Indian television. But, why are such indecent and depraved shows on the rise? Is it really the people interested?

There must be a significant number of people watching such shows to make it viable as it is not easy to sustain a failed show, especially on TV, where. I won't comment whether these kinds of serials should air on TV or not. It’d be intruding to an artist's freedom of expression, his right to express an idea, be it in form of non-fiction speech, or with some fictional characters telling a story. These shows are just harmless entertainment meant for making you laugh, right? However, if you ask me, my opinion would be that, in the name of comedy, the makers of such sitcoms are either fooling the …

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…

A Mesmerizing Winter Morning

WAKING UP on a winter morning takes courage. It is a sort of sacrifice only a few people are able to make, those having a remarkable will-power. Unless you have a strong reason to get something done, making this sacrifice is a herculean task, almost impossible. In winter, there is a joy in oversleeping, in cuddling up under a nice warm and cosy blanket. What most people do is— they wake up, see the time, and get back to sleep again. Even when being awake, it becomes extremely difficult to actually get up and resume our work or study. What happens is that our mind succumbs to the bodily comfort of enjoying a great peaceful sleep underneath a blanket. I, too, belong to this group, the group that is not ready to give up morning sleep easily on any day; and when it comes to giving up the sleep of a winter morning, we just cannot.

However, one day, on a fairly cold winter morning, when I supposed to be in the sleep mode, I not only got up early but went for a walk too. Dressed up in winte…

The Whistle For The 2019 Political Battle Is Blown And The Bahubali Ready

ON THE VERY FIRST DAY OF 2019, with an exclusive interview to the ANI, Narendra Bahubali made his intentions crystal clear. That the Bahubali is not gratified with just one term and is ready to battle for the another. For the critics, it would be interesting to find out if there is going to be any Katappa or it’ll be a Katappa-less battle.

Ok, let's be serious. Politics is a serious subject, no? Let’s talk about Smita Prakash who seems to be Mr Modi's preferred choice of journalists in order to move and shake the political discourse of the nation. Speaking of her, I must tell you, the lady is a very great listener. To interview someone like Modi, you need to be a good listener rather than a good speaker. Because, you know, he goes on and on… and on. Eventually, he ends up wooing you. Though not if you have some predefined political goals or loyalty to a particular party.

The interview was much-needed from him to upgrade his party’s morale for the bigger battle ahead and to sh…

Accidental Prime Minister Compels India To Talk Manmohan Singh And Corruption Before Election, A Review

The media advisor to former prime minister Manmohan Singh, with his boring job, has been able to commercialize a story of his boss right to the screen. No one would have imagined this possibility when the book was launched in the midst of the 2014 election; when it also made a buzz with the allegations giving birth to controversies. But with the change of government after the election, things cooled down and people forgot their highly qualified yet good-for-nothing economist PM. Only till next election though.
