Ever felt like you got stuck in a black hole and laughed over yourself after falling off from your bed in sleep? Or flew free in space until you saw a big crater approaching you!!
Recently we surpassed 50 years of mankind reaching on the moon; 12 Aug was Indian space scientist Vikram Sarabhai's birth anniversary; ISRO completed 50 years on this independence day! A lot happening around 'Space' and a lot yet to happen maybe! And how does all of this connect to Sputnik?
Well, factually 'Sputnik' was the name of the first artificial Earth satellite. And thus Sputnik moment is a point where people realize that they are threatened or challenged and have to redouble their efforts to catch up. We, humans, ponder a lot in our lives for our choices, wishes, and desires & few of us just take them in a split second. Is making a decision making is very much having a Sputnik Moment? which is unsettled-uncertain-unpredictable?
"When was the last time you perceived that chasing your dreams was an illusion or just a hope for a living? Do you remember sharing a light smile with someone unknown? Or ever felt churned up in the circle of life only to realize that desires never end? How have our relationships changed with technology? Have we ever wondered about the contradictions of life? Have you ever experience the loneliness like a heavy burden on your back?
We all have moments in our life just like 'Sputnik moments', Moments that made us go Wow, moments of realization, moments of immense emotions. Well, what may be your Sputnik Moment?
We experience this and so much more just by Being Humans through the journey of not just life, but the journey of community, urbanization, social conditions, technology and many more!
