India 2050: A Brief History of the Future

Prediction is human nature for centuries, but anticipating the future is becoming trendy in various disciplines. In 2050, I see of an India that will be radically different thanks to smart cities, environmentally sustainable and energy efficient point of views, an India in which art and creativity will conquer new markets and sectors such as medical technologies and synthetic biology.

India in 2050 will be testament to the spread of Internet of Things, cloud computing, IT and supercomputing that will transform decision-making process of local and national government on issues such as the location of a new airport or how to improve health care services.

The wars in their new configuration will appear as a form of rejection of religion, the economy and social order. And the Indians will have the courage to dream of a better nation. A new democratic humanity will work together, guided by the spirit of altruism, for an India that respects the environment and be more peaceful. The women will have more rights and more freedom in terms of education, political participation and equal treatment in the workplace.

India will be powered exclusively by clean, renewable energy which more than a dream will be a concrete idea harnessing the sun, the wind, and the currents would ensure the necessary energy to man and the environment. After adopting a new mindset, India will produce clean energy that will ease the anomaly in global temperature, to help avoid the worst climate scenarios.

In 2050 cars would no longer be a luxury and be in every garage to get around in the city where even the flowers of the parks will be synthetic and the gap between man and nature will grow, more and more. Most of the large carnivores including lions, rhinos, elephants and tigers will survive only in zoos.

In 2050 years the technological trends will be strongly influenced by the convergence of computer science, biology, materials science and nanotechnology. This convergence has such potential to revolutionize all aspects of our lives. The progress in the medical industry will alleviate many common health problems and extend life expectancy.

A drop of blood or saliva on a microchip will be enough to find out what diseases lurk in our DNA and for each disease there will be a gene therapy. Cancer will be a thing of the past thanks to nano robots that can detect and destroy tumours.

The impact that these developments will have on the future of the people will lead to excessive consumption becoming a form of protest, as well as the labour market, which will become more sophisticated and increasingly will require mobility in a country where the states will eventually disappear.

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:

Mysore Pak Recipe

The Mysore Pak is an Indian dessert originating in the state of Karnataka in southern India, but it is widely consumed throughout peninsular India and especially Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala. There are 2 ways to prepare it, soft or more solid, with generous amounts of melted butter or ghee, chickpea flour and sugar.

The mysore pak was originally known as masoor pak, and was made with masoor dal flour.

Having no idea for his creation, Madappa decided to call the recipe Mysore Pak, which means in Sanskrit and…
