Playing my KARD right!

Excitement, Adrenaline and Caffeine were my three companions on 12th July! Check out my roller coaster of a day now!

12th July was one of the most hectic days I had ever gone through. Staying awake for more than 27 hours, fueled with caffeine and excitement, the day still seems like a blur to me.
Music has always been my escape and my home. Learning about Kpop opened many new doors for me and helped me a lot. A month back, I was swept off my feet with the incredible news of one of my favorite group, KARD, touring India.
To say I was happy would be an understatement. Jumping around the house with my sister was my current condition. The month went passed like a blur, mostly filled with me convincing my parents and coming up with different scenarios.
Along with my sister and mother, I boarded the 6:00 am train from Jaipur to Delhi. Being overhyped and excited, I hadn’t slept a wink that night. We arrived at 10:30 and decided to hang out at the famous spot “Connaught Place”. Filled with caffeine and amazing burgers, we mostly spent our time checking out restaurants.
Making our way to the venue of the concert at exactly 2:30, we were greeted by a huge crowd. The lines were unexpectedly long and the excitement was buzzing. After freshening up and waiting for a while, we finally arrived at the indoor stadium.

The atmosphere there was so much better than I had imagined. The fans had wholeheartedly embraced them with edgy outfits and banners in Korean. We took our seats and waited for some time. At about 5:10, there was a huge cheer as the host arrived and announced the group. Starting off with their hit “Don’t recall”, the group did not disappoint us at all for the next two hours.
It was evident that the group were trying their best on stage and they certainly succeeded.

The evening was mesmerizing, with BM’s freestyle dance on the popular Bollywood song “Bom Diggy”, J.seph being a cutie, the unreleased song performed for the first time by KARD and the showstopping Mi Gente group dance. The group put up a wonderful show for us and I couldn’t be more satisfied.
The one thing I am absolutely sure of is that my mother is now a proud hidden kard!

The management of the show was splendid and the stage was very nicely lit up with lights. Unfortunately, I missed the last song as we had to board the 7:55 train from Delhi.
I was mildly disappointed that we had to leave without jamming to “Bomb Bomb” but it was surely a day well spent.

India can never be a scientific power.

The world is growing and developing rapidly today. Where does India stand today? What does our future look like on a global standard?

“Unity in diversity” 

India is a nation which seems to aptly follow this statement. A nation with a population of 1.3 billion and 29 states, India first tasted freedom 71 years ago after being governed by the Britishers for over 200 years. 

In 71 years India has developed a lot in terms of a nation. The nation was successful in eradicating the deadly polio virus and many epidemics raising the life expectancy rate. India is also one of the top 4 military powers of the world. The total number of languages recognized in India is 1652.

A very important field of development is science. The major superpowers of the world such as the USA and Russia have progressed a great deal. Various satellites, expeditions to the moon, groundbreaking scientific discoveries all seem easily achievable in today’s world. The alarming question that comes up is 
“Will India ever be a great scientific power.”

Harboring great minds and wonderful creative ability. There is no doubt that India definitely has the capability to emerge as a superpower. 
The Mars orbital mission was a wonderful example of the same. A team of 14 Indian scientists with no foreign grant or help made the first ever successful attempt to touch Mars on a cheap budget. 

I firmly believe that India can and will be a great scientific power in the coming years. After being on the road of development for quite a while now, India still has some major problems to deal with. The starvation of poor people, empowerment of women and farmers, the list goes on. 

India as a nation should first work for the betterment of its people. The day that task is completed India will surely rise as the next great scientific power.
