This new word / name, as desired bysomeone to be associated with me, came out to be an interesting new word to be learnt.
Though the origins for the namer was not purely definable, but more towards "sounded" like good..

But it came out to be pretty inetersting.
So the following is hel from WIKIPEDIA to help all with more on the word

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

For other uses, see Waldo (disambiguation).
Waldo (1940) is a novella by Robert A. Heinlein originally published in Astounding Magazine. It is also available in the book Waldo & Magic, Inc..
A crippled genius named Waldo lives in an orbital habitat and works earthside via remote manipulators he developed. They were described as having the shape and dexterity of a human hand, thus allowing them to handle any human tool, including another manipulator. They were available in a variety of sizes, from micro-manipulators to construction sized.
In the modern sense, a waldo is a remote manipulator.

Modern waldoes may have direct mechanical linkages or be teleoperated as the originals in the story were. They may also be expanded to include almost any part or function of the body.

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…
