To travel or not to travel, that is the question.
-- Mr. Time

Time is a beautiful yet mysterious concept. Time transcends all borders and boundaries. It has seen what no one can ever see in his/her lifetime. If there's anyone who has seen the reign of Ashoka as well as that of Sachin Tendulkar, it is time. I'd like to share one stanza of a poem I had written about time for my post, 'Watch Your Time':

Time is a dimension,
Of seconds, minutes and hours.
And not a calculator,
To measure conflicts and Wars.

When we talk of Time Travel, is this actually possible? We have numerous movies and books based on time travel, but this concept is still not a plausible one...

Something to ponder on - What is Time Travel? Is it time travelling through the ages, as the name says..or is it humans travelling through time which is practically impossible! 

Time is constant. It is always travelling. It has changed civilizations, created cities, modernised the world..and what not? Here are a few instances of time travelling through decades and generations:




Mahatma Gandhi


This is how Time has changed India...

...And now is the time for India to change the Time!

What are your views about Time Travel and its effects on India? Do you think travelling through time can actually benefit us and what are its possibilties? I'd love to hear your ideas and opinions on this topic...!
