Doesn’t it sound like a nightmare not have internet access?

Indeed in today’s world it does seem like one, especially for us. Ask our parents and grandparents, they would be the happiest people alive on earth if that would have happened, since we would spare at least some of our time for them.

Oh! by saying that I’m looking towards the positive aspects of having no internet.

  • Yes, we would find more time for our loved ones.
  • We will create memories not just for the sake of posting on social networking sites but probably we will truly live the moment.
  • We will find some time for our hobbies, if there are some beyond internet.
  • Children would spend more time buying themselves candies, instead of playing candy crush. They would grow up playing the games their parents played growing up. That will probably establish a connection or say help remove the communication and generation gap.
  • Students will try to make their projects on their own instead of doing everything on ‘Google’ and ‘Wikipedia’. With no offences to any of the search engines, this will increase the creativity of the individual, although it has made life easier and less complicated.
  • Our long pending to-do-list can be accomplished.
  • More family and friends time, outings, get-togethers, etc.
  • Last but not the least, the divide which it has physically created will vanish. Take for example, four friends sitting together, each one on their respective phones, connected digitally but divided physically, even though being in immediate vicinity.

Now, before I gain much of the opposition from the people who read this, since it has become possible due to internet that I am able to write and create content for my readers. Had internet not been there, we wouldn’t be here. That’s probably the saddest part of the world without internet. Adding more to this list –

  • No frequent updates about the happenings around the world. The ease of communication and connectivity will reduce.
  • No online shopping, overcrowded markets, long billing queues, etc (Phew..!)
  • No online business and services. The words like ‘E-commerce’ shall become extinct. Yes, ‘extinct’.
  • Those who have their dependency on internet as their ultimate source of living shall altogether suffer the most.
  • No Google and Wikipedia at our disposal. After having been accustomed to the easier resorts, it shall be pretty much difficult to revert back to the age old methods.
  • No social media 😦
  • No blogs, no bloggers, no ‘you’, no ‘me’. There shall remain no platform for  interactions at such a large scale.
  • No online discussion forums.
  • No e-learning through audio visual aids at your disposal every now and then.

To conclude I would say that life has become a lot easier and convenient with the advent of internet. If we prudently use it being within the frame of our priorities and responsibilities, it is a boon for the mankind as a whole. It is our usage that is good or bad not the technology. In today’s times it id difficult to imagine life without internet. If it is down even for a day, we tend to feel that the day is incomplete, something is missing, that is our level of dependence on internet.

You write because you have an idea in your mind that feels so genuine, so important, so true. And yet, by the time this idea passes through the different filters of your mind, and into your hand, and onto the page or computer screen — it becomes distorted, and it’s been diminished. The writing you end up with is an approximation, if you’re lucky, of whatever it was you really wanted to say.

– Author Khaled Hosseini, “How to Write,” the Atlantic


“Being Able to write is a Blessing”

The above lines in itself truly describe the scenario every writer faces, atleast the amateur writers like me do. (Though as of now, I don’t consider myself a writer. I’m just a beginner. There is a long way to go. I’ve used it in the context that anyone who writes is a writer, 😉 ) To add to this, there is a major issue cropping up these days, that I am giving a mention below.

These days, since I have been regular at writing almost anything and everything that comes up to my mind, my thoughts have started startling me. They strike my mind with the speed of light (I don’t think I am exaggerating), one after the other, even before I could make a note of the first one the next seems to come in and the chain continues. It makes it difficult for me to able to concentrate on what I was supposed to write. So, I found a way out. I have started making notes of the subsequent thoughts that strike me and help my focus on the first one. Once I complete that write – up, I re-visit the notes list, choose one out of that and get back to writing. This has no doubt helped me, but this wanderer mind of mine still creates troubles but I am trying to keep an edge over it. I hope, I succeed. And, honestly, when I write something with a focused and free mind, I find my writings better than what I write when I am over-filled with thoughts. I won’t say that those write-up’s come up to be excellent but they are something I pour my heart in, so I feel more connected, more satisfied and happier.

Also, these over-speedy thoughts and my focus to be able to write them somewhere before they disappear or vanish, at times cuts me from the physical world. It happens a lot these days that I am with my family or friends talking and chatting with them, spending time with them and suddenly I am lost…Lost in my own world. It is difficult to believe that my mom pulls my leg by saying that she has lost her importance to my writings..Gosh..! I really couldn’t believe my ears really heard that, I pinched myself and thought over what mom said and I found that true to an extent. The time slot in my schedule that exclusively belonged to my Mum previously now is spent either with my diary or laptop. I decided to effectively manage time and not to disappoint Mumma. Also, the time devoted to chats and messages previously now goes in making notes of the recurrent thoughts in my mind i.e. the use of my cell phone too has changed a great deal. I have started getting complaints from my folks. I am hopeful to be able to deal with this and I am sure I will be able to do it.

To conclude, I would like to put it up as  – There are two things I need to be doing – Firstly, manage my thoughts (My Dream World, The Illusionary World that seems real only to me) and secondly, manage my relationships (The Physical World, The Real Real World). I can’t even imagine living in the absence of any of these. Though both are mutually exclusive but both are essential for my survival. I exist because they do. I am because they are.
