Endeavour has been the mean for survival since traces of oxygen were imbibing life. From, oxygen to water to grass to stone to iron to gold to industries to IT the mean remains the same "endeavour", however end "success" differs. While NASA is preparing for laboratory on Mars for Man-Mission & even found co-Earth planet Kepler-6b whereas million in other corner of Earth "such as Uttar Pradesh" do not have lavoratory. Perhaps, it is the "gradient of equity" which differs the success of IT from that of Oxygen. Introspection of prioritising between softening the gradient by MGNREGA of UPA or further deepening by Make in India of NDA, will result that the Buddha's Middle Path is optimum. Unlike, Industrial, IT Revolution has the capacity to succeed by swiftly bringing out billions out of poverty unnerving Rangarajan report however it may also steepens the curve for few left out.
How will the concept of Iron Age can survive in IT world ? Holi is concept of Iron age, attempting to measure its success in IT world will force many attributes in action such as spirituality, customs, religion. Integrating & lensing it through dimension of gradient of equity or "success" will link it with our contemporary life. For many tribal community in Andaman is still unknown, for some Holi is happiest moment in year like "Vrindavan Widows"; some are marred in prejudice of "Yeh tera yeh mera"; for some "mauka-mauka" for celebration & weaving broken relation and for IT folks excuse to get back to social media. Each success measured are interwoven with excuses,"perhaps" justifying individualism. It is this individualism which satisfies our generation on platforms provided by social media giants allowing them to stamp trillions. So the Gradient of Success is nothing but the Satisfaction which differ with time, opportunity and life.
--- Happy Holi
