Revolution's at the corner
There is much to change in this world. Ever since I was born I have set my aim not at doing things, but at changing them. It’s always about the next revolution. Why should I dream the regular dream if I can dream flying above the Old and welcoming the New? With Babu™, I am not only flying high, but also different: change what must be changed and build what has never been built. With faith in my heart and greatness on my mind, I swear this shall come.
I first thought of Babu™ when I was a sophomore at college. Back then, it was about an idea of an independent and non-profit biotechnological institute for the greats and the braves. Hopelessly participating in my professor’s everyday routines for striving to keep themselves afloat, I was digging a grave for my own childhood dreams. How can one spend one third of their lives soldering their names in the places of prestige just to dedicate the rest attempting to not be forgotten? Is this what it means to be born with the talent for bringing change, especially in biology and medicine, just to watch it float down in the endless river of reputation?
This must be changed and this was the main driving force for me when giving life to Babu™. Your age, your resume, your wealth, your network, and your unsoldered name cannot stop your brilliant mind from delivering change to the world. Not on my watch! No matter if you are 15 or 95 – as long as you bring a cure or a change to the table, and as long as they are good, there will be something out there to help you bring it to people, no matter the cost. This something is Babu™.
Because science is not slow, the most pivotal point of science is at the idea’s conception. The setup and procedures after take some time, but do you know what absorbs time the most? Money. Money, money, money. And people. Some are for you and your idea and some are against. This is the way it always was and this is the way it always will be. But not in Babu™. No more applying for grants and waiting months to receive a partial of what likely should have been yours from the moment when your own revolution was born. No more angry and proud people surrounding your idea with their own broken wall of fame. I used to think that the Old Guard was the problem. Now I’ve changed that notion a bit: people belonging to both, the Old and New Guard, can be good or evil, progressive or regressive, for or against. It’s not about fighting the Old Guard and supporting the New one. It’s about choosing the people from both groups to work with and deliver change, to build a New World, to cure the incurable, and to make Babu™ the symbol it deserves to be.
