TECHKRITI: A PARADISE OF INNOVATION
‘Fiction is an art and art is triumph over chaos…….to celebrate a world that lies spread out around us like a bewildering and stupendous dream’ –John Cheever
Did you ever ponder the thought of living in a dream world? The answer is an obvious yes. Every one of us has at least once thought of a world of one’s own imagination.The place where we make our fictitious things possible; where we change our imaginable things to facts.The smartphones, the internet, cars and everything that one relies on completely today, were a dream for some. The important assets of our awesome life have been an imagination or dream of many people at some point in the past.We indeed are living someone’s fictitious life. Truly said, life is a dream and our astounding life was a dream.
Fact v/s Fiction
Ever wondered what life would be without the internet? This is even beyond our imagination.It is unimaginable for anybody today to know the feeling of draping oneself in a garb of leaves when all one wears are highly processed fabrics. Imagine a cave man in Stone Age, continuously gazing at the forest fire. A thought strikes his mind. He thinks of, how can he calm the fire and control it. The thought then passed and progressed in many minds over years and decades.And look now, we have tempted fire. This untamed fire is so well controlled that it is being used by every one of us, even in our homes.The case is not only with fire, but everything that surrounds us today. Nobody among us can even think of living without their cell phones. The idea of phones was derived from the need of communicating with people miles away. And today we have developed so much that we can even video chat with people sitting far off. Everything you can think of, that surrounds us today, just started with an imagination
Mindful of the above, we get the fact that how time has evolved; how people have developed.To surprise and euphoria, cognitive human psychology appreciates the fact that brains evolve the way they want to or in the direction they choose. The idea is that at some point time, one thought of something that was just an imagination to him. The thought was then passed to others and progressed in different minds.Passed from generation to generation; the idea was a reality decade later. The proposal is that the thought is carried over the time and people change their way of thinking and processing things to make fiction a possibility. It is this fact that outstandingly explains that minds make headway they are made to. Like decades earlier, people thought of something like robots but this was possible only a few years back, briefly, describes how our brain makes progress and fictions are changed into facts.
Everything has changed now.Fictions are facts; Dreams are reality; future is now.This all can be experienced in TECHKRITI’17.This time techkriti has come up with a similar theme, Factualising Fictions.
