2017 : The Unplugged Treat

TROLL : An Autobiography

Hey dear reader! Before I begin, please allow me to thank you for your continued display of stupidity & mediocrity. It has been a permanent fuel to my ability. Without your intense abuses & your strong biases, I couldn't have thought of becoming a global phenomenon. With every irrelevant tag of yours on Facebook, I become more & more relevant. With your valuable tweets & retweets about the most rubbish & pointless issues, I have attained the utmost importance. Your firm support for your opinion & extreme intolerance for others' has been quite an inspiration for me. And I'm pretty sure that together you and I will ruin this world of its demographic dividend & make it a much better hell to dwell on. At the onset, I would take the pleasure of introducing myself to you, in case you're not aware of me. Despite the fact that the world population is constantly registering its online presence and myself being an online phenomenon, there's st

The Show must go on.

Between a dusk and a dawn There was a time when you were born. They called it Life which was a THEATRE where,             The Show must go on. You faced the world, and fought many battles. some were lost, some were won. And the message was clear, with a very loud horn that,         The Show must go on. You developed a range, and your roles did change. At times, you were a king. At times, you were a pawn. All you learnt that,         The Show must go on. Peace kissed your attitude, when you admired solitude. Far from the disco, you preferred a lawn, alone you sat and enjoyed your popcorn. And you realised that,         The Show must go on. Your role is short, but the stage is hot. Make your mistakes, and give your shot. Learn from your failures, but you dare not mourn. So wake up from your bed, and get your dreams drawn. Because, One day, you'll be dead, one day, you'll be gone. No matter what, But,  The Show must go

National Pocket Money

Sounds insane, right? The answer is sheer objective. Neither we aren't the ones who need it, nor we ought to understand it. For a long time, the status-quo of our lives have been revolving around some trivial aspects of the economy. Exchange rate against dollars, luring GDP numbers and annual budget announcements. That's all we generally think when it comes to the economy. Reason being our lassitude & indifference towards economic affairs. But believe it or not, there are two sole entities that control this world. POLITICIANS & ECONOMISTS. ADIRAAG has been raising the bars on the former, and right now, with your eyes skimming in the direction of the text, it unveils one of the most peculiar economic theories in an attempt to alleviate poverty. UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME. A state-sponsored scheme where the government would provide us with a fixed monthly income, irrespective of our employment status. And here we go.....!! The idea is currently under execut

Are We Losing It?

If NO, then let's get back to the world that is full of happinness, wealth, camaraderie, each of them compacted together in a package called as illusion. If YES, then let's try to figure out & address one of the most far-reaching and underrated problems of the mankind. My problem, your problem, our problem, THE FINAL PROBLEM. (don't worry, Moriarty is dead) Artificial Intelligence isn't a new, but still a buzzword for more than a decade now. With our knack & increasing dexterity, we have been able to fabricate & implement the idea of the millenia. To design computer systems that are able to perform certain tasks that require human intelligence. And, here's the catch..! By superimposing our intellectual abilities on the machines, aren't we getting superimposed by the basic traits of a naive machine? In layman terms, is it a sort of biggest exchange that the world has ever seen, where machines are becoming humans, and humans becoming machi
