The Real Value of Time
How rich would you be if time became the official world currency? Plus, a special interview with Sonu Nigam, who tells us what time means to him.

On a recent business trip, a thought occurred to me: What if time replaced money as the official world currency? How would life be different? The one with the most time would be the richest – and vice versa. Imagine my utter surprise when a movie with a similar theme, titled “In Time” and starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, was screened on the flight I was on! In the movie, time was the currency with which people paid for everything, and everybody stopped ageing at 25. The catch: Each person was genetically engineered to live only one additional year, unless one could buy one’s way out of it. Obviously, the rich became virtually immortal, while the rest were forced to beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day.
