Imagining a better future (essay contest)

  When the new baby is born in a family, everybody in that community and family members become so happy.  Because the new baby brings a happiness with her smile, her first word, first crawling or first step.  The baby is very happy in that family. She has a mom, a dad and food to eat. She starts to grow up, goes to school.  Then she goes to High School. She sets some goals to achieve like every human does.

 Everything the new world starts for person, when they set their goals.  Some…

Freedom

I thought on this subject, what should be our future –once my focus went on those birds who flies in the sky with freedom without any boundries.Sometimes it seems that birds are saying to us to know what the real meaning of freedom and independence.It also seems that birds saying that yet we human are free but still locked in grooves .Sometimes - I think we have something different from ridges, Perhapes we have separate due to our thinking the biggest reason behind this our fighting with…

To turn mirrors into windows.......

       I have a particularly good pair of socks. No, not expensive ones-just a cheap yet inordinately inspiring pair of socks.  It's colorful, and colors never fail to brighten my mood. It's striped with red, yellow, black, blue, indigo, green, white and a cacophony of other colors. These thin stripes, then merge at the toe point, into a huge sparkling sun. Like a child in  a sweet shop, or like a doting mother, I want everything for humanity. I want all the colors. I want us, yes the…

THE WORLD IN 21ST CENTURY: A SEA OF CHALLENGES AND A MOUNTAIN OF OPPORTUNITIES by Dr Inam Danish Khan

INTRODUCTION

Humanity has witnessed a time-warp of agony, defeat, and despair as much as hope, triumph and glory. The 200,000 year journey from pre-historic era to Millennium era may seem esoteric; nevertheless it stands on agricultural, health and industrial revolutions made sustainable with energy exploitation, infrastructure development and risk management. An edifice of knowledge based scientific, societal and environmental biosphere has enabled the world to flourish;…

What would you like to see happen during this century to make this world a better place?

Universe is bizarre or perhaps more precisely it’s Multiverse; the word itself is weird and gives many implications. Anything can happen to anyone, anytime at anywhere in this world. Reality is not as obvious and simple as we have thought about it. “In a moment, everything can change: a drunk driver can kill a loved one; a tornado can destroy a town; a doctor can issue a terminal diagnosis1”. The flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil can set off a tornado in Texas as according to chaos theory.… Continue

What I would like to see happen during this century to make the world a better place

#betterfuturecontest

We have always been intrigued of how the future will be. While many believe that predicting the future is impossible, some of us like to think of it as a ray of hope. The main reason for this is our desperate need for a change. The world has been going through what seems like an abysmal phase of…

What would you like to see happen during this century to make the world a better place?

     I walk into the first day of my quantitative analysis class and I’m five minutes late. Having taken a previous class with the professor, she gives me a warm smile and a heartfelt, “Hi there, come on in we are just getting started.” But as I settle down in my seat, I am taken aback by the number of international students like myself in the same class, very much unlike my previous class with her. My thought process abruptly changes to “Boy, Is this going to be a tough class or what?” As…

The Future of War: A History, with Lawrence Freedman

"Though most of the literature you will read on the future of war certainly talks about war as between regular armies, as proper fights, now with drones or with autonomous vehicles or robots or whatever, or even painless--cyber and so on--yet actually the reality of war is as it has always been: it is vicious, and it is nasty, and it kills the wrong people, and it does so in considerable numbers."
