Innovation in science and technology has given birth to amazing inventions and discoveries. Economic transactions have traveled a long way from the barter system to the present day online money transactions. Now a bank account holder in India can easily do transactions with a smart phone and an active mobile data plan. India is a booming young digital economy market with 500 million active internet users. Block chain is an emerging mode of decentralised transaction system. It is a chain of encrypted blocks. Block chain is a double edged sword. Heated debates are happening on Block chain and its potential benefits and pitfalls. The Government of India is planning to start a new Block chain study centre in Hyderabad, the Block chain district of India . Also around the world by the year 2020, Dubai is mooting an ambitious dream to transform herself to be the first block chain powered government. Hence, the importance of Blockchain is ever demanding which is why this young inspiration from our Kerala has led us to believe that Inspiration and dreams do not die untill we wave our white flag.
“We should always believe that we can achieve our dreams. Sometimes, we fall and may realize that it isn’t going as per what we think. But, what we should do is cling onto that tiny bit of hope inside saying I can go on and move forward. Because, years down the line we should look back and say, I believed in myself”, says Rohith for his fellow readers.
