"DON'T YOU WANT TO BE COOL?" - VINEET SINGAL
Can a story beat facts? Vineet Singal proves it through his 100K Cheeks campaign.
Compassion is the one quality that everyone needs but are lacking. It may be a harsh fact, but not untrue especially when it comes to the loss of lives. This year we've lost so many people to natural disasters but most lives are victims of disease and lack of infrastructure. It's strange considering that we invented the cures for health issues to tackle such situations, but the simple difficulty of lack of money always comes in the way. Money has become such so critical for us that if there is no monetary gain people don't take make an effort. However the present generation has realised the situation at hand and know that if they don't do anything about it now, then the future ahead is bleak.
How did he become one of the "Top 10 Changemakers under 40"?
Vineet Singal is one of the front-runners in this race to make a change and through his efforts 100K Cheeks was established. 100K Cheeks is an initiative to register 100,000 new bone marrow donors using the power of personal stories and social media. Not only that he co-founded Anjna, a national nonprofit organization that aims to utilize technology at free clinics. Vineet wants to use his skills a social entrepreneur and future physician to fight for greater access to quality and affordable healthcare for the underserved. Though based in the US, with the help of INK, he wants to inspire us Indians to do the same here. Becoming an INK fellow has truly helped him and the cause he works for, as The Huffington Post named him one of the “Top 10 Changemakers Under 40”.
What did we learn?
One of the main things that stand out in Vineet Singal's story is his belief that no matter what our differences are, the things that unite us and bring us together are stronger and far outnumber those that drive us apart. After humanity is what helps us stand above the rest of the species residing on our planet.
STRINGING IMAGES – ANAND AGARWALA
Can an image come alive?
With his new app- String, Anand Agarwala proves that images can come alive at your touch.
Gadgets these days are getting more and more user friendly with time and have become the life source of people. It has become so integral to us that the concept of pen and paper has almost gone obsolete. Products have gone from being physical to virtual. Even artists have gone on to taking up virtual art. Leaving the real world in order to create a 3D virtual world is what is on most people's minds. The world (or at least a version of it) is at your fingertips.
Leading on from this current trend is Anand Agarwala, who shot to recognition with BumpTop, an innovative 3D desktop user interface powered by physics and multi-touch gestures. Started of as a thesis project for his Masters, it was later acquired by Google after a lot of competition. Fueled by the success of his first product, Anand has now created String, the latest 3D user interface technology. It allows the user to manipulate not just inanimate objects but characters too, and it can also be used as a 3D drawing tool. A landmark in the area of 3D imaging, String shows that if people put their minds to it, anything can come alive
Humility is a quality that everyone should imbibe because most failures in life are caused due to the clash of egos. Just because you have one success, doesn't make you the king of this world or are above everyone else. Even the most powerful of men faced failure at some point in their lives. Not everyone becomes an overnight success and even if you do, it doesn't make you a big deal. What people must realize is that one success doesn't mean you're done. Keep moving and keep learning!
