It's A Small World

This is a fact superior to the technological advancements mankind speaks of. Today in the name of progress and evolution we have let inanimate and insensitive ‘things’ rule our world. And somehow they have started defining our existence; we have reached a no turn back point where we cannot do without what we call ‘gadgets’. Life is now easy and complicated at the same time, a tangled state of affairs. And only our gadgets can help us.

When it comes to gadgets everyone wants to own the best of them, but to be the best without them? A handful maybe! Gadgets reflect our personality they say, nothing is more true. But to prove that we need not have to cross our limits of liking and abilities and own them. Sadly many of us do that, we rush and buy the ‘IN THING’.I confess I have done that with mobile phones and after a month or so I have felt like changing them for no reason at all. Though late but for good I have realized that there is much more in calling a gadget life defining.I am writing here about mine.

When I think of gadgets which have made me feel ‘Change Is Easy’, the only thing which flashes before my eye currently is the MICROSCOPE.I know this may sound a bit eccentric. I could have ranted here about my watch, mobile phone, laptop, television, refrigerator, washing machine, toaster, iron box and whatever the rest of the world can come up with. These gadgets have of course made my daily living easy like the rest of yours, but what makes the microscope more special in my life is that I am a budding Microbiologist and that is why the obvious choice.

You see, I see life with the microscope. Tiny cells and organisms in all shapes, sizes and colors greet me all day. Sometimes they are too difficult to identify and we in the laboratory cannot diagnose what the patient might be suffering from. They are the best at mutations and variations; trust me when I say they are wittier than us humans. And all we do is speak of change and gadgets! I sometimes wonder how do they manage to live and in fact flourish without any of them, or maybe we should learn something.

These days I am spending a lot of my time with the microscope; this is one gadget which I cannot imagine myself without in the years to come. It has brought me closer to life, quite literally. My world has now started living under it. I call everything I see through it as frenemies actually, they look very beautiful but at times they can be a pain in the eye, I mean it. I must say that I am learning to focus the right thing in the right light, in life as well.I now can observe more than I can see.I now can face the minutest but toughest of all challenges.I now can understand that the most little things in this world are the most strongest.For many reasons else what makes me what I am and what I can be is only the MICROSCOPE.My heart feels for it and the rest is just secondary;-)

"Nothing inspires the caterpillar to turn into a butterfly but itself.
The best change is from within,change is easy only if you make it"
