Are Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) the Future of Content Creation?

At current, the ad-based mechanism for making money has fallen short in many respects. It can incentivise sensationalised content to generate clicks, for instance.

Understanding the true meaning of Diwali

Diwali comes from the word Dipavali which has two words—Dipa meaning Light and Avali means Rows of Light/Carrier of Light. Therefore Dipa signifies ‘coming to light’. In Vedic culture, a lamp is lit to drive away inauspiciousness. It also means to come into knowledge from darkness. In Bhagavad-gita Chapter 10 Verse 11, Lord Krishna says—‘To show them (the devotees) special mercy, I with the shining lamp of knowledge, destroy the darkness born of ignorance.’ Diwali is celebrated for five days, each holding special importance through scriptural history. Day One is Dhanteras, dedicated to the worship of Lord Dhanvantari for good health. 2. 3. 4. Day Five is the festival of Bhai-duuj or a special festival commemorating the bond between brothers and sisters. Therefore, if you haven’t already been a part of our festivals and events, it’s never too late. Yatra goes "back in time" to raise funds.
