Why it aint simple!!!

28 May

It’s a complicated life… already. Man has enough complications to handle with an emotional heart. What bothers me is that we have further complicated our lives whith things that should have been simple –

Not the thing that heats food up .. :( ..

Not the thing that heats food up .. 😦 ..

Case No 1 – MICROWAVES – Now these things are suppose to heat food. But isnt there a simple fire that can do that. An independant fire. Microwaves are dependant on electricity (and believe me if live in Noida – it is the most scarce resource here) and food gets heated in vessels that are microwave safe. Ironically, these same vessels are useless, when you put them over fire. But then life itself is ironical(we will go on to this topic in some other post)

Case No.2 – Cushion Covers – Just remember the last time you tried to put on a cushion or pillow cover – its almost like a workout for 2 minutes.  I am a little confused. Why was the design never suitable to make it easy. Aint there enough pushing and shoving that the human kind are subjected to – like by the boss, the house maid, the other complicated stuff etc etc… 

Case No3 – Leave applications – Well , I am lazy enough not to send a mail to my boss and in most cases get a verbal approval. But imagine this. I am now supposed to remember a complicated url- (which I forget, therefore have to search thru a bunch of mails and  have finally managed to make it a favourite on INTERNET EXPLORER),  a username and password.. login and send leave request. As soon as this happens(which fails to happen in most chhuti cases), a ‘mail’ gets shot to my BOSS and she then has to logon to the same url and approve… a mroe tedious complicated process to benefit a bunch of HR professionals and make the life of 1000 employees a little complicated

As I continue thinking of why this happens I realise that most of these complications give way to an ecosystem around them – generating more business/ more employment and giving man another reasons to create a simpler solution. 🙂

    It was the leave application that motivated you to write all this, isn’t it? 😛

    So while you look to go from Microwave to fire, I first though of lion batteries with good power integrated in nextgen MicroWaves 😛 –

    While you believe in verbal approval, I thought of voice controls on your system …

    wonder why things are getting complicated? coz One mans food it others poison, ones sweet dream is others nightmare 🙂

    But cushion covers hmmmm I really cant think of something geeky for that. Guess somethings in life has to be solved without rocket science… lol

    I so agree with your leave application complexity.
    But you raised a good point about cushion cover design! Need to think and do something 🙂
