I stay idle, except when some idea pops up.

I got YouTube addicted
“My life’s gone”, I predicted
It’s an in-built app in Android
Had it have never been created,
Google’s income would stay near void

How to get rid?
On
‘Rooting’ is my bid
I contacted a gadgets freak
He said my device may brick

My Redmi is six months old
Actually planned to exchange it after it’s four fold
Will this plan mould?

I phoned my friend
Who’s a developer at backend
‘Buy an iPhone’ – His recommend
“Because here, YouTube isn’t an in-build”
But iPhone is an overspend

But still there’s hope
I immediately made a grope
Over the internet
Never made such an effort as…

Firstly, What’s UPI?

UPI abbreviates to Unified Payments Interface. It is a platform that could link to many bank accounts and enables fast money transfer using IMPS (Immediate Payment Service). However, it needs an app to work. It’s way faster than the previous NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer). As it’s online, it’s available 24x7, 365 days.

It’s Origin:

It was launched in 2016 as an initiative by NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India) with support by the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) and the IBA (Indian Banks Association).

PayTM’s post on Twitter

Until then, people used to use Mobile Wallets like PayTM, Oxigen, Mobikwik, and Freecharge to recharge, and pay bills. People had to recharge their wallets every now and then to ensure there’s sufficient money inside. It was a tedious task. With the UPI platform, people could recharge and pay bills directly from their bank accounts. The sender need not remember the Receiver’s Bank Account number, IFSC Code, Bank name…

A middle-class guy of name Rahul Sharma, who was very eager to do something his country feels proud of, hesitantly borrowed a sum of three lakh rupees from his father, who was a government school teacher. He, along with three of his friends established the company Micromax informatics Ltd. as an IT software company in 2000. That was the beginning of something great that’s gonna happen. …


SELF IMPROVEMENT

How it feels when you quit an addiction

I was then in my first grade. There was a strict rule in my school that nails should be trimmed and maintained properly. After a two-month long gap of summer holidays, our school has reopened. We were waiting for the bus to come. I saw my brother biting his nails short with his front teeth. I got to remember that strict rule. I flattered him for that idea and I too bit my nails with my teeth, and that day went fine.

Till then I didn’t even have an idea I could cut-short my nails without the need of a nail-cutter! That feeling when I bite my nails was psychologically making me happy too. I already was a shy nerdy dweeb those days and this habit gave me a sense of stress-busting whenever I felt discomfiture. …

How I came to know about Vertu:

One day I was watching the movie ‘Goutham Nanda’ where the hero’s family is so insanely rich that his father is featured as one in Top 50 Richest People in the World. For me, all was clear except one – Why was the man still using a Feature phone (of an unknown company Vertu). He could have bought an iPhone made of gold right? (Have a look at the screenshot above)

So I googled the name ‘Vertu’ to know what the mysterious Mobile phone exactly is. Here’s what I have found, which cleared all my doubts.

Firstly, Who founded it?

Vertu was founded by Nokia in 1998, with the intention of giving big shots a shot of luxury in their mobiles. According to The Economist, the concept was to market phones explicitly as fashion accessories, with the idea…

Firstly, let’s get some basic knowledge

As you already know, there are two types of cells in our eyes, namely Rods and Cones. These are the photoreceptors, useful in providing easy vision to the eyes in dim light and bright light respectively.

Let’s now talk about the Pupil of the eye, which changes its size based on the light entering in our eye. When it’s dark, it widens to allow more light into the eye, thus helping us see better. When it’s bright, it constricts to allow less light for safe vision. The pupil appears black because it allows almost no light to escape from it.

Going from dark to light:
