Rewriting the code,
Ever thought why “Rich get richer and poor get poorer” ? , When you are growing as a kid
your future is framed by your environment - parents, friends and society. Sigmund Freud
defines it as id, ego and super ego. For instance, consider how children are raised in different
communities?, we all grown up with thousands of RULES imposed on us, for example, “Our
country is the greatest one”, “Our religion is the true religion”, “You should know your limits”,
“this is so wrong”, "your father is not a millionaire”, etc.
Apparently you are programmed to behave in that framework, When your Job demands to
be a public speaker, you startle, words won’t come out because you’ve always been
appreciated for being a silent boy. Eventually you tend to self-satisfy your ego and believe
that this is what I am capable of. Like Pareto’s rule, 80% of your life is decided in your first
20% of years. So when you are trying to do something which is something you are not
programmed for, you struggle to handle, most likely to become stressful and depressing.
Reason - your firmware does not support this software update. You are not designed to do
this JOB.
Obviously it is going to be hard, but still you have the capability to rewrite the program.
How? by living through that stress, So next time when you feel stress full, remember you are
rewriting that program. You will eventually able to deploy it successfully, just keep doing it.
“Programs are meant to be updated, the sooner the better”.
I would like to end with a quote from TT Rangarajan
What is in a day?? - The potential to make a new beginning ..!

Blockchain PoC for Supply chain built on
the NEM Blockchain.
A POC has been build on NEM platform to track movement of goods
on Cargo.
Here is a summary
A NEM account is generated for each parcel. A transaction payload
message is used to store key data including: order id, delivery location,
link to documents stored on IPFS. The solution utilizes NEM
multi-signature accounts that requires N out of M confirmations to initiate
certain transactions. NEM mosaics are used as confirmation tokens.
Aggregated bonded transactions enable bonded transactions that would
