Do you want this futural system that may come true?

I recently read an interesting article. It said that Facebook, Inc. announced that they are developing a system with which things we think can be changed into characters and we can display them on terminal devices without typing anything on a keyboard. This method to read what a human think doesn't involve implanting some devices into the human brain, but they are detachably attached to close to the head. They aim to input 100 characters into the terminal…

Morning Glory ...

I was walking to my office when I saw an old man bearing  heavy things on his shoulders. He walked slowly ..step by step... I noticed him from a far. He almost fell down twice, he walked unstable ...when I got closer. I was shocked when I  realized he was using a crutch .

I stopped for a minute. I didn't know what to do. I thought what should I do. Then I crossed the road and moved toward him. He brought some cassava crisp to sell. At the same time, I saw a man on his motorcycle stop…

I always have liked to be comfortable and have taken for granted having electricity and all the conveniences that this brings to my life. I have never given the much thought to. My home is a small house in the country and my nearest neighbor lives a half a mile down the road from where I live.

You would think that I am very isolated but thanks to an electrical power line , this is not so, because this power line allows me to have a telephone line, a tv , radio, my stereo equipment…

The First drop of Rain

It is on the motivation of 'dara's" blog Rain, this blog came into being.  Thanks dara.

After a very hot day when the dark clouds come and overcast the scorching sky the thirsty sands and mud on the hot ground give its smell with the first drop of the rain.  It is like the entire surrounding is performing the ritual of ablution. I imagine myself to be on the path where there is no traffic around but the green trees on both sides of the…
