Then one day, our competitions co-ordinator Mrs.Soudha Nasar told me that there is a science exhibition. We friends started discussing so much through skype and all, and still not topic. And suddenly, the IDEA popped up in my mind. Computer Science is a branch of science, so why don't I take the app for the exhibition? All my friends were a little confused at the start, but soon they were very enthusiastic. We all got prepared and finally the day came, when we had to show our INNOVATIVE LITTLE PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY to the Whole UAE...
Our innovative idea was highly successful, and all the visitors, teachers and the main judges were very impressed. But unfortunately I had to go for a quiz as part of the same program, so I missed the main Judging. And thanks to the kindness of my friends, they told to the judges that most of the credit goes to me, because I made the app.
And finally it was the award ceremony, and they were announcing the results from third pos.to first pos.
Even though we got many positive reviews, we were still not so confident about its success, because it was a relatively new concept. The third prize was not for us, so we were about to get up and go. The second prize was not for us, so we were about to open the auditorium door to go then suddenly, the words we wanted to hear came - "The Smart 7G Wizkids from Sunrise School take first prize!!!"
We all were shocked, and we went and received the trophies...We all got a deserving McDonalds burger and went home happily...
A real life story with some small twists, isn't it?

Aah, I sure miss the times when I was back in india....the farms ,animals and lush green grass.....every once in a while, we go to India, for a very short time.....
Now the opportunity came flying to me , to visit a farm In the UAE!
The idea group , a group which aims to increase our knowledge practically and theoretically, had plannned an educational trip to almarai farms in al ain.
After a long wait (a two hour journey in the bus with a lot of route miscalculations) which practically made me sleep soundly, we reached the farm.
We did not need to look out of the window, as the special smell of the farms and cows made us instantly realize we are at the farm.
After we reached, the almarai team showed us a wide variety of their products, ranging from milk to croissants. Then, we proceeded towards the farm. The cows were separated into sections( pregnant cows, 24 days, 25 days to a month and so on. There were gigantic cooling fans which sprayed fine mist on to the cows. There were also huge piles of hay, as feed for the cows. Eveything was explained beautifully by the almarai staff, and we listened carefully.
Then we went to the milk processing area. We saw how the cows were milked, very easily, due to the automatic milking system used there. There were also two tanks in which they stored water and milk.
After all this, we went back to the small on-site office. There, we got the chance to taste all the products of almarai, which satisfied our appetite. We saw a video In which they showed how almarai started and how it grew into such a successful business.
We bid bye to our animal friends and left, for an another 2hr journey back to abu dhabi. It was very nice of the idea group to create such trips. Anyways, I got a full experience of the life with the cows....

Technology is rapidly advancing by each day, month, year, and so on. In a few decades, what was a 1 pound(weight) mobile with big buttons is now fitted with a touch screen, the best of connectivity, the best of entertainment, and lots more.....
Nowadays, the most frequently discussed technological wonder is the flexible display(mobiles, TV'S).
The LG Company has made the worlds 2nd flexible phone,the LG GFlex and the 1st flexible TV,the OLED TV. Samsung has released the first flexible mobile, the Galaxy Round.
Wearable technology is taking many giant leaps. A Kerala-Based company has launched "Fin", a wearable smart ring that transforms your palm into a gesture-enabled screen. Google has released the Google Glass and the Google Contact Lens. The Google Glass is a wearable device which is kept as a glass has an informative display, with weather, time and other useful utilities and the Google Contact Lens which measures glucose levels, which can be of great help for diabetic patients.
As you can see the rapidly increasing rate of technological developments, with a lot of pros, technology has made a great impact on mankind, transforming the way man lives.
But, the negative impacts too are great in number, especially for mobiles and computers.
As many of you know, mobile phones emit electromagnetic waves and harmful radiation. Although most of you know this harmful fact, many of you still increase the usage of mobile phones. Although we cannot completely avoid the usage of mobile phone(obviously), we can reduce it to some extent.
Over usage of Computer and TV can lead to serious eyesight loss and brain damage. Although games can increase brain thinking capacity, too much can lead to brain damage.
So, what do you think? Technology a bane or a boon?
