So I have been writing semi-regularly nowadays, usually about topics on whim. Due to this, sometime days pass without any new stuff written/thought about or the available idea become too monotonous for penning. Now I feel like I should ask for suggestions for topics to write and deliberate on. If you came across this toot, feel free to suggest topics and if you're a fellow writing enthusiast, can you also tell what's your source of inspirations? Reply or DMs welcome :)

Wanted to document some of the areas which I fiddled around with my android device to make it a little silent towards it's "supposed" corporate overloads ;)

We cannot predict the value our work will provide to the world. That’s fine. It is not our job to judge our own work. It is our job to create it, to pour ourselves into it, and to master our craft as best we can.

The sooner people realize we can't just hope someone else will fix it, the better chance we got. When we realize something is hard, choosing something else that is easier will not get us what we really want.

"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We have learned the definition of democracy from text books and assume it is working as defined and we are not taught what to do when the implementation is differing from the textbook definition. #democracy

I'm Sai Kamal from Bharat Institute of Engineering and Technology. I recently got to attend Fight COVID with Free Software remote hackathon. To everyone who is a part of this cause, you all are doing such a great job!

I was a part of Oxygen, Food, Medicines team. We started around 11:30. I was a bit late though. So we've gathered and verified data of over 50 Food suppliers, Oxygen cylinder suppliers, and at one point of time we had to gather and verify the details of 150 suppliers of covifor injection. We were into our work so much that I felt having lunch was just a priority and kept collecting details relentlessly. It was really fun and most importantly it was for a great cause and that's what matters the most.

While searching for possible leads on instagram, google, facebook, I came across a lot of heartbreaking posts which showed how critical the situation is. Everyone is dying, admitted to ICUs, calling and reaching out to others for Oxygen cylinders, remdesivir injection. I first felt completely helpless. But now I feel I'm contributing to something. I feel great for coming across this cause.

Thanks to Akhilendra and ravali for being so patient in answering our queries in our team, and all the members in our team who were simply superb! Thanks to Swecha for this wonderful cause! I urge each and everyone of you to please Stay home unless necessary!

PS - Late night blog ideas are short and easy to write, though some seems weird to a non-sleepy mind ;)
