From techie to 'Baba': Here's how future is shaping up for 'techie babas'

With the use of futuristic technological advancements any techie can proclaim to be a 'Baba' or godman.

Who doesn't want to don a cape and become a godman and that too without preaching religion-centric verses? There is no need to sway your palms in the air and act as if you are meditating. There is no requirement of conjecturing possibilities and to add to all of the above -- you are safe from being thrashed by the public if you make any wrong move. The icing on the cake? One simply needs to be tech-savvy.

Technology is always changing, adapting and progressing. Things that seem impossible today, might not be so tomorrow. Here's how a techie can also transform to a 'Baba' with the aid of few futuristic technological advancements.

Want to travel the world within the wink of an eye?

Elon Musk's 'Hyperloop' might do just that-surprising people around, by covering 560 km in 35 minutes. This 760 mph subsonic train dubbed 'Hyperloop' is a revolution in itself and holds the capability of taking passengers from London to Edinburgh or LA to San Francisco in less than 30 minutes. 'Hyperloop' is similar to a vacuum tube system found in buildings, which is used to move documents from one place to another. Hence, booking a seat in this cross between a Concorde, railgun and air-hockey table is sure to assure a techie the place of a godman, for who else can travel that fast?

A perfect shield against major attacks

Tactical assault light operator suit or TALOS is the one thing the techie-turned-godman needs in order to save himself from all sorts of attacks. This 'Iron Man' suit is perfectly on track to serve this purpose. Designed keeping in mind the commandos, this suit is all set to protect the first special operator, coming through a door during a raid.

Ubiquitous computing can be a major tool for the godman

Computers are everywhere, in our phones, cars, toys and even fridges, but they are still pretty obvious. This next big thing from the future can be a great tool with which the self-proclaimed godman can fool people around for they might never come to know how or when their godman receives information at large. Also known as 'Everyware', this device will gear up in some time to make the world around us saturated with information processing devices, virtually installed everywhere, yet all of those shall remain invisible.

The divine makes food availability easy

A machine, with just a press of the button, is ready to serve various food pastes in an instant. This 3D printing revolution will make the godman serve the dire need for food instantly to all his devotees, rich or poor. Rotis, bread, cakes, pastries, pasta, nothing is given a miss here.

A godman can do a lot of things, even reverse climate change

A futuristic development in geoengineering projects to reduce carbon emissions with just a click on the button might just reverse time back to the days of the Garden of Eden. Artificial trees and ocean fertilisations will be installed to boost up the project.

The divine is immortal

Above all, what's the use of becoming a godman if one doesn't attain immortality? This new technology might remove this hurdle as well. In the last 50 years alone, life expectancy has seen a rise from 65 to 75 percent. With the aid of nanotechnology and a swipe across the application on one's phone, little robots in the bloodstream will run accordingly to fix all issues posing as a hindrance to the body.

Most of these futuristic technical developments are in their advanced stages. They might or won't be available everywhere, but in due course of time, one will be able to see, touch and use these advancements, that in the long run will make human life easier.

A hardcore techie can definitely become divine with these latest applications and inventions, besides the weather reading guide. A course on religion or astrology is, therefore, not a requirement. A laptop or a smartphone will serve the purpose. The 'Baba' shall reside in the techie forever.
