Journey of Computers through Time

 

The first computer was as large as a 20 x 40 feet room and weighed 30 tons. TodaImage result for computer cliparty computers fit easily on our desks and now we even have portable computers also known as laptops which vary in different sizes.

But the most shocking is the Michigan Micro Mote, which has been deemed the world’s smallest computer an
d can fit seamlessly along the edge of a nickel and its volume is about one millimeter cube!

Although computers have technically been in use since the abacus approximately 5000 years ago, it is modern computers that have had the greatest and most profound effect on society. The first full-sized digital computer in history was developed in 1944. Called the Mark I, this computer was used only for calculations and weighed five tons. Despite its size and limited ability it was the first of many that would start off generations of computer development and growth.

 

Today is the age of the Fifth Generation of Computers and it is yet to be completely defined, as there are numerous paths that technology is taking toward the future of computer development.

The progress of computers, from one which takes up the space of three rooms to one smaller than a nickel, reflects the progress of not only our scientific knowledge but also our society and hence we learn that a changing society is a progressive society.

Ganesha and his Life’s Lessons

What is your proof for the creation of World? Isn’t it unlimited? So, the proof should be unlimited too! My evidence for the ultimate creation is God. As the world unlimited, the creator, God too is unlimited. Then why does lord Krishna have his own look? That’s because we need to worship and pray for our benefit in the future.

Mythological books produce a lot of information about our ancestors, God, etc. We can then develop the right and learn from the wrong. What does Lord Ganesha teach us? I’ll tell you!

Poor lord Ganesh only has one and half teeth while we have thirty two! Why so? This is because Ganesha was instructed to write the Mahabharata. While writing, he broke his pencil so to continue his work; he broke half of his tooth and used it as a pencil. This sacrifice tells us that we should be ready to help at any cost.

Another lesson is that he keeps a delicious Modak in his hand. In Sanskrit the word ‘modak’ means joy. This says that he gives us to keep our happiness in our own hand.

The next thing is his sitting position. Isn’t it a little weird? One leg up & one down! That’s because He conveys a message that one side of our mind should be calm while the other side should be active.

Why does he keep a mouse with him? Everyone knows that a mouse keeps nibbling on things but when he is with God, he is calm, composed and focused.

You must know that Ganesha has an elephant head and he holds a rope like thing. It is called Goad. It is used to whip elephants. He keeps it so he can control himself. This teaches us that even we should keep ourselves controlled.

See, how much do we learn from Ganesha!
