  1. The Fear of Being With a Smartphone
    Nomophobia — the fear of being without a smartphone — a psychological affliction amplified by the pandemic. Our reliance on smartphones has transformed them from convenient tools to lifelines for maintaining personal good-standing. This transformation has led us to a digital slavery, where our actions and behaviors are influenced by algorithms, marketers, and policy keepers. Freud's analysis of civilization's discontents reminds us of the inherent tension between individual desires and societal obligations. The integration of smartphones into every aspect of our lives has blurred the line between necessity and intrusion, amplifying concerns about the influence of technology on our lives and societies. The act of collecting data on such a massive scale during the pandemic, along with the enforcement of tracking app usage, sets a precedent that could have a cascading effect, further eroding personal autonomy and societal norms. To address these challenges, we must critically examine our social structures and design human-centric technological systems that align with human needs and values. By doing so, we can navigate the risks and forge a path towards a future where innovation serves our best interests.

  6. head of yoga 
    Exploring a shift from traditional career paths, this post delves into the quest for meaningful work beyond financial gains. Rejecting the confines of finance-driven roles, I ponder with the notion of the "Head of Yoga," not in the literal sense but as a catalyst for fostering holistic well-being, creativity, and camaraderie in the workplace. Drawing from personal insights gleaned from yoga and movement arts, I question the conventional work culture paradigms. Amidst a landscape of self-help trends and tech stress, the narrative hints at a forthcoming paradigm shift in tech, emphasizing human-centric solutions over purely technological advancements
