Taufiq Qureshi.....A famous percussionist and son of legendry Ustad Allarakha and brother of maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain.

His talent is simply creativity for you and me but a true god's gift for him. And very certainly he has nurtured it really well. Salute to him for that. I wish everyone of us has an inborn talent which will take us to the path of success. Somehow, this statement seems to be a food for thought! Is it really that, each and every person has an inborn talent? Is it just a question of recognizing it and developing it? I think not everyone has it, what do you people think? Well, take a look at a clip of this percussion performance / fusion and then comment!!

The art of being different....

I am simply impressed with people who have the natural ability to differentiate themselves from the crowd. It is an art, to believe in yourself and gain confidence. This is because, many a times, people will ridicule and make fun of you for doing something which 'they' think is weird! But one who does not pay attention to the surrounding people, is for sure the winner of the so called RAT RACE, in my opinion. Fact is, if you are going to implement something that many others are capable of, you will get momentary satisfaction and happiness. It is all short-lived. Someone will do the same thing and then you are amongst heap of groundnuts which just look the same and you will be thus hidden and not noticed. Well, but if you believe in what you think, and strive to put it through and help the society, it will be surely appreciated sooner or later!! One such example that, convinces me of all the above facts is Scott Jones, the guy who invented the 'Voicemail' at the age of 26 years. That is what I was wondering, you would have invented the voicemail. Is it someone from the Telecom provider industry? No we have got to thank Scott Jones for this. He is bright inventor and a serial Entrepreneur. He is the one who founded various companies which gave us everything from Voicemail to the iTunes feature of displaying track names when a CD is inserted in the computer. And many such things which makes him totally distinguishable than many of us!!! He is has started 8 companies till now, each in a varied fields and helping the mass public in simple ways. The most impressive thing, I felt was, "Scott Jones has a mind that never stops envisioning the next new technology to simplify our lives." His mind always is busy looking for innovative solutions for simplifying things and helping the common man in daily mundane jobs. To increase his creativity and brainstorming power, he has built a high tech residence with various facilities in his house. The more I describe here, less it is....So, just drop by his website at

Do we know what Innovation really is??

The phases of life are best described by the saying, Change is always hard to accept.....but the one who accepts it as a challenge is the one who is interested in life!!! The one who works for converting this change into an opportunity is the real Innovator according to me. Quotes like, "Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity - not a threat", "Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress" describe the meaning of Innovation, but the best example I can give is here, something which many of you might have seen it, but believe me this is ultimate:

Art of Thinking out of the Box...

Have you heard of the Moore's Law. Imagine how the world would be in another 10 years. We can think of so many things. We just think about it and leave it. But, some folks here from the Cambridge Nanotechnology Center and Nokia Research Center, have put their conceived ideas into what I think is the next generation's biggest technological wonder. Check it out yourselves:
