A writer/author by hobby and a former Indian Diplomat. I am 55 years and a Graduate in Political Science Honors from Sri Venkateswara College, Delhi University as also a Post Graduate in Sociology from Annamalai University. I am the Great Grandson of Late Mr. M.S. Purnalingam Pillai, BA, LT, Emeritus Professor of English, Bishop Heber College, Trichinopoly who authored 27 works in English including Madras University Papers on Shakespeare’s Plays, Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare, Stories from Goldsmith, Socretes and Plato and Evolutional Ethics, Julius Caesar, Othello – with introduction and full notes, Digest of Roman Law, The Ten Tamil Saints, History of England, etc. and 16 works in Tamil including Surapadman, Avvai Kural, Seyyul Kovai, Viveka Vilakkam, Panniru Penmanigal, Kathai and Karpanai (Story & Dream), Navaraathri Lectures, Kamatchi, Tamil Essays or Sitrurais, etc. I am interested in writing on topics of varied interests and for the time being I keep Politics and Religion out of my purview. My recent book titled ‘Nature…Human Nature…Animal Instinct’ published by M/s BlueRoseONE Publishers is available in Print and e-Book formats in various Book Stores and in Online Platforms such as Amazon & Flipkart as also in Amazon global platform and various other global publishers. The habit of writing articles started way back from 1986 when write-ups were submitted for publication initially in ‘Monday Diary’ column of Indian Express Newspaper and then other National-level newspapers. Writing is my passion and as and when ideas come, I pour it out in black and white and feel contented when the same gets published. My innumerable blogs are available in subbiahsridhars.blogspot.com and myvoice.opindia.com. I wish to achieve a remarkable success in the field of writing and publication of various Articles, Write-ups and Books solely penned by me. Writing is my passion and my view is that if one has come to this world, one should contribute some good thoughts for the benefit of others. I love nature watching and in fact many of my articles find a mention about the behavior of various flora and fauna and revolve around the environment. I also keep thinking and writing about celestial bodies and their movement and try to write something about the mysteries surrounding them about which our knowledge is too meagre.

It is believed that ideas for invention of many gadgets and machines was inspired from Nature. In-depth study of Nature might have been done for inventing new machines and appliances, the science of which is now called by the name of ‘Biomimicry’ or ‘Biomimetics’.  The human being definitely tends to have gotten the idea from Nature only even when he went in his spree of inventing various modes of transport such as flight, ship, metro, etc. and not only mastered but made improvements day-in-and-day-out over it.

Human beings in the course of and during the process of his development had invented many new devices, machines and gadgets. As a result of invention of aeroplane one may now expect to move from one corner of the world to another and thereby showing that the vast world as it is known to be as a small village. Likewise, with the invention of ship, we have come to know of many new places, particularly Island countries or archipelago not known or even heard-of earlier in history of this world. Similarly, the invention of Metro has improved our movement in otherwise traffic-laden cities. Now it is not a dream but a reality to find one comfortably taking breakfast, lunch and dinner at three different corners of the world in a single day. There are even some heroically bold persons, intending to prove that the world is nothing but a small community and with that goal in mind, setting off on a world tour on hot-air balloon, or a bicycle or even on foot and, no doubt, many have also succeeded in their mind-boggling endeavour to demonstrate the world to be a small village.

Major discoveries and inventions by the mankind from times immemorial have led to a vast progress in the field of technologies changing the course of development of the human society the world over. Now, it seems a probability that such innovative ideas definitely would have emerged from the natural concept existing worldwide and that man must have got the idea of inventing the ‘iron bird’ – the flight or aeroplane, by watching the birds flying and working out that biological mechanism in machine format; or inventing ship and submarines by watching the fish float and whale swim; or buses and trucks the engine of which is very similar to that of human being itself – fuel as food, coolant to keep engine cool just like we have water, exhaust pipe just like that of our excretory system and even, in a lighter vein, even engines give out gases from time to time upon halting; or for that matter developing underground railway or metropolitan by watching the earthworm moving inside the earth, etc. Once after the invention of the flight, it led to man’s going higher and higher up the altitude that later prompted the discovery of rockets, missiles and various artificial satellites leading to faster modes of communication and other facilities like broadcasting, weather analysis, etc.

Similarly new textile fabrics with the usage of nano-technology has been invented which is capable of repelling liquids, dirt, releasing stains, neutralizing odours and balancing body temperature which in fact is the result of studies undertaken on plants by scientists mimicking the properties found in plant surfaces. Work is already in full swing on other innovative ideas like skin put, which is an invention which allows the surface of one’s body to be used as a touch screen.

An armband projects the image of a menu or keyboard onto one’s hand or forearm. Skin put can detect what part of a projected image one touches, due to difference in bone density and skin texture and which in turn transmits a wireless signal to a computer or any such device. There are bound to be many other such inventions in the offing which all is fundamentally based on nature and its products – be it flora or fauna. All said and done, still lots of things exist that need be studied, adopted or pondered over by mankind from the Mother Nature, as the latter is not devoid of vast information available in mixed form. Wherever one looks in nature, one finds clear evidence of the Creator’s extra-ordinary intelligence and design. In fact, the creator of this Universe has amazing ideas.

The God invented various ideas first and humans just try to replicate them. Many of the inventions are just a replica of the already existing inventions in its natural form, like for example, the computer – which is a man-made invention but the naturally existing super computer is ‘Human Brain’ which no material computer can defeat, if the capacity of human brain is utilised to its fullest capacity. It is said human brain is used only to maximum 2 per cent of its capacity and one might wonder what will happen if some super human is able to use 100 per cent of brain capacity, it might even defeat the super computers. 

We now speak of inserting chips into the brain whereas there is more capacity inbuilt in the human brain itself but though humans have invented so many worldly items like calculator, computer and other such gadgets and see its fast functioning but it’s a pity we are not able to utilise the inbuilt capacity of brain itself which if done will do away with the need for any calculators, computers and related chips to be inserted in human body or brain to achieve the target or enhancing the capacity to compete with the artificial machines.
