“Of the TT, By the TT, For the TT”

Posted: September 25, 2008 in Moderators

“What we call little things are the causes of great things; they are the beginning, the embryo, and it is the point of departure which, generally speaking, decides the whole future of an existence. One single black speck may be the beginning of gangrene, of a storm, of a revolution.

                                                                                                Henri Frédéric Amiel (1821-1881)

 

Some thought, isn’t it!!! But then before everybody’s grey cells starts working faster then required let me throw some light on its relevance at our inception. It’s been sometime since we all have been discussing about a common platform for the TT. And now, when we are actually creating one, I started wondering (not that I haven’t done before) about the most basic question of anything’s existence…Why???

 

 Please do not worry, for discussing about the scope of human existence is beyond the scope of a blog, for that matter even beyond my capabilities. But for a moment let us ask ourselves why we need this blog… After all we are under one roof …we can talk when we want to….Cant we…????

 

But then just talking is not what is being aimed at…Is it???

 

Before I continue let me tell you a small story (believe me it won’t be long!!!)

 

Well we have all heard stories of great value Google attaches to innovation…The company has become a role model for all the budding organization and even the existing ones are trying to adapt as much as possible from it. It happened so that once the CEO of a big Indian MNC visited its campus. The campus, though very tastefully designed, had loads of empty places and many employees were there chit-chatting effortlessly as if they were not at work. The CEO got curious and asked how the company can allow such activities in office time.

 

The answer came as a surprise to him when He was told these empty spaces are the center of Innovation and Development, these are the spaces which sow seeds that later turned to be some of the most beautiful flowers in Google’s backyard (Orkut, Google news, Gmail ….the list just goes on….) The CEO got so inspired that he decided to provide a similar medium for all his scientific brains. And this lead to a number of Coffee points at his newly constructed R & D center!!

 

Moral of the story: A big thing starts from a small medium….”

 

Well I guess all of you would be curious to know who the CEO was and which was this organization… But about that we will discuss later….

 

 Now coming back to my question about the reason for the blog’s existence… I would say we are creating one such small medium…Our relevance and existence might not mean anything today but it is the future what we aim at….To built, to develop and to innovate is our goal….But (God knows from where this but comes every time!!!) having said that, the mediums of this world doesn’t decide the future, does it….It is in our hand, we who work with them, modulate them as per our needs and requirements and finally change them as per our  convenience. What will become of us will be decided by ourselves, as it is we who decide our own fate (knowingly or unknowingly!!!)….So at this juncture I will stop and become a spectator, for my work was to help in creation of this medium but its existence and life will be decided by you all, the trainees….

 

After all aint this the TT club…
