Future is not a linear
Extrapolation of the present;
Unfamiliar terrains lie ahead.
To traverse it, a new kind of vehicle
We may have to invent.
New driving skills we may have to possess
And a new sense of direction as well.
For the road that stretches out before us
May lead us anytime into hell.
Future is not a fixed goal
Like a perceived destination.
For the road to future
May itself change directions
And lead us to a place
Unfound in our imagination.
Future is not something predictable
Like the snowfall occurring in winter;
It is a series of technological innovations
Which may benefit mankind,
Or result in unexpected disaster.
So let us not look at the future
With a preconceived notion,
But equip ourselves with a new vehicle
And a new kind of fuel
To reach the ever-changing destination.
