If you are say 50 now, will you honestly tell me you remember every thing when you are at 10? No. You dont. So when you go there you wont remember anything about the present. When you travel ahead to 100 years you mind also will certainly move ahead 100 years forgetting the present.

In the December, 1900 issue of the magazine The Ladies Home Journal, there was an article by a man named John Watkins Jr, entitled What May Happen in the Next Hundred Years.

He proceeded to make twenty-nine confident and detailed predictions about life in the year 2000.

Naturally, most were completely out to lunch:

* The city house will practically be no more. Building in blocks will be illegal. The trip from suburban home to office will require a few minutes only. A penny will pay the fare.

* There will be no street cars in our large cities. Underground or overhead streets will teem with capacious automobile passenger coaches and freight with cushioned wheels. Cities, therefore, will be free from all noises.

* No mosquitoes nor flies. Insect screens will be unnecessary. Mosquitoes, house-flies and roaches will have been practically exterminated. Boards of health will have destroyed all mosquito haunts and breeding-grounds, drained all stagnant pools, fill ...more

Times are not in our hands but wisdom of times are in our hand , History teaches what went wrong and why ,what went right and why , This teaches us to adopt better part of history and shun the bad parts of history in our present individual as well as collective lives .
We ourselves have a history .What we do ? We learn from mistakes by using our time machine as to what went wrong with us some times ahead . If we persist on not learning from mistakes the time machine may well turn into time bomb spoling our destiny
We are not Judged by events beyond our control and I think we did not influence any event 100 years back .Our role is in present and future .
If we all do something good here surely our next generation will definately like to see their time machine set to 2010 ---let's say 2010 with Joy .
IF THE TIME MACHINE IS ABSOLUTELY SET TO TRUTH WE WILL REALISE WE WERE NOT FREE 100 YEARS BACK ,NEITHER MOST OF US ARE FREE THIS TIME AS WE CONTINUE TO BE RULED BY MATERIALISM ,JUST ...more

If time machine takes you to 100 years ahead the you will envy for the carried on family legacy....More Gandhi's, Modi's , Yadav's , Reddy's will put you to shame. How generation after generations they managed to rule and with opposed voices you could hardly hit the bull's eye a single shot since past one century.

Hope one need not be a Joules Verne to visualize the scenario 100 years from now. The change in the Political scenario will be for the worse. The lesson is got from history. The developed and underdeveloped countries have different patterns of history. Think of my dream country Germany. The physicist of the early 20th Century Einstein, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, a writer like Johann Wolfgang Goethe, a composure like Johann Sebastian Bach, philosophers like from Leibniz through Kant, Hegel, Marx, Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, Wittgenstein have set the tune of future Germany. Though Germany has not long past of colonialism, but it excelled in its own strength.

But we in India have not respected anybody other than Mahatma Gandhi. We believe than other than Mahatma, all others' ideas are trash. What he said on his last days. The Congress party has done it's duty. It can now be dismantled and a new party should be started as in free India there will only be power politics. 62 years ...more
