How to think BIG!

Everyone says that one needs to think and aim for bigger things. I remember that even Thiruvalluvar stresses on this.

OK, when did we start giving advices on KPHSonline?. Are we telling a success story? No, not yet!

Sometimes, we discuss about starting businesses (obviously everyone gets pissed off on his job sooner or later). On one fine weekend, we were discussing on various business opportunities and there came this idea from none other than our 'notworthliving' (for some reason he doesn't want his real name to be revealed!).

What exactly was the idea? It goes like this - We buy some 1000 acres of land somewhere and do some plantation. Whatever be it you plant (certainly not opium or marihuana), just because all autotrophs consume Carbon-di-oxide and release Oxygen, some world organization gives 3.5 Cr to you, which in turn was collected from CO2 releasing industries. And, you also earn from various offerings from these plantations. Not to mention that you become a *farmer* (like Lalu?!), and earn some punniyam. We decided that our main interest in this business proposal would be none other than our Zameendar Gopal. Can't find anyone else as influential with his people and for obvious reasons on his cattle raising abilities!

There came another thought as to where to find land for this? Roommates suggested buying in Moon. Firstly, isn't the word 'land' is specific only to our planet? Can the surface of moon can also be considered as land? Whatever...

Next question is how will you grow vegetation on Moon? OK, why to bother? I had this new idea. Let's not depend on something which is not available in moon. Why not make use of something which is already available?

What if the *land* you buy in moon happens to contain a BIG crater? Ah, that's where I caught this idea. Where does moon get light from? It is not a star and it cannot produce light on its own. It just reflects the light from Sun, right? What if you could make a BIG parabolic reflector out of these craters? Build a reflector out of these craters by giving them a reflective coat of something such that it can make a BIG beam of light. You can lighten so many areas on earth which fall under the trajectory of the light beam. I can hear you all cry 'What an idea sirji!'. OK, calm down, there is something very important we missed here - what can we do on new moon days? That's the maintenance power outage every month. Anyway, I'm patenting this idea!
