Back then, it was Algebra when Aryabhatta designed the concept of Zero which got carried to the others. This time it is Machine Learning. Incidentally, I used multiple Machine Learning concepts in high-dimension to design the future of my children and possibly friends and those who love and believe in me. Of course, my ideology and thinking have been shaped by various cultures I explored in this life.

Arjuna’s Arrow is a story from Hindu mythology about the greatest archer of all time. The tale’s true title is Arjuna of Mahabharata, and this epic tells the story of an archer who, when he focused on a target, would always hit his mark. Arjuna had razorsharp focus, and his teacher, Drona Archarya, was the greatest teacher who ever lived. Drona had many students, but Arjuna was the one who excelled the most in archery. According to the tale, one of Drona’s other students criticized Drona for favoritism, and Drona responded by challenging all of the students to take part in an archery contest. He asked them all to try to hit the eye of a wooden bird.
His first student tried, called Yudhistar, tried the shot, and said that he could see the sun, the clouds, and the trees when he aimed at the bird. He missed the shot. The second student, Ashwathama, tried the shot and could see the bird, the branch on which the bird sat, the mango near the bird, the leaves, and other surroundings. He also failed the shot.
Arjuna was the last to try the shot. When asked what he could see, he replied that he saw the eye of the bird. He did not see the tree, the branch, or even the bird. He saw nothing but the eye and hit his target. The moral of the story surrounds Arjuna’s focus and how it made him great.
Will replace Ajinkya with one of future nephew’s name later on if he becomes successful. Hahaha. (Not questioning the existence of Pandavas, just want to keep things relatable and similar.) May be with one of my future niece’s name when she shows me.
Anyway one thing I realized that this is the era where razor sharp focus may not always work well. Those who focus only on one thing and ignore things or disregard things in the vicinity might find it difficult to live. Back then, I am guessing the resources (and maybe the desires) were less, and razor sharp focus in an average life may not work. But again it depends on your profession or your thinking or your self or your capabilities. Pretty sure athletes will beg to differ. Hence no hard and fast rules. And there are limitations on how many things you can juggle at any given instant or through a period of time. Or in some cases is it even worth trying to or actually juggle too many things?
One thing I realized while juggling it that it’s a skill that can be developed but takes time and effort. Probably like focus. I learned how to juggle with two balls in one hand and am fairly successful at it. I tried to juggle with two tennis balls in my non-dominant hand and even with three balls in two hands. It was much more difficult and time consuming than first. Also, it consumes a lot of my concentration. Again these are my opinions which may be valid for one or some or none. Maybe someone is so gifted that he or she can juggle with four balls as soon as they come out of the womb. That’s talent man.
