Says Yoda, he does – With you, the force shall be

Bring to you news, I do tonight. Not any exciting news, that is. About my tiring day, this news is. Just getting better from a flu, I was, when as usual, to office, I had to venture. Decided for a team lunch today, my boss had. Traditional, the food at this restaurant called ‘The Village’ was.

Back to the office it was then, an hour later. Free lunch in the tummy, loaded with work I was. Won’t let me keep my eyes open, the food inside of me; but on my head all the time, the boss was. Slogging for hours, then I was, when eventually finished the all that work was. Looked up and 10 on the clock it was. Skipped the dinner was. Tonight, the lunch it shall be, happy that keeps the tummy.

Finally, home I was. Had decided to study, I had; but taken its toll, the day had. On the tele, played football they did; and rather gave up studying to watch I did. Time to write the blog it was then, when Master Yoda, came to me he did. Said to me he did – Enjoy life shall you, you geezer. Share my message, you will. With you, the force shall be then.

Not bash me for this post, you shall. Came out of a tired mind, it did. Make more sense, I shall tomorrow.

The times, they’re always changing

I posted on twitter (tweeted) for the 5000th time today. I usually keep this practice of dedicating my landmark tweets (generally the thousands)
to something or the other. It may be something close to my heart, a topic that I might have been discussing a lot on the website; it could be
about people, things or events that inspired me, or phenomena that amaze me.

Today, I’d been on the bus back home from Pune, posting about the journey as I realized I was approaching the landmark. I had to stop, think and pay a fitting tribute to the “occassion”. And, just as I was tapping the keypad on my phone contemplating, it struck me. I came up with a series of 3 tweets which read –

“T-5000 To technology.Back in ’99,I remember my first windows PC & modem internet connection.Those modems were huge & beeping all the time..”

“Internet was confusion,yet exciting.Today I’m posting on a social networking website (an idea beyond the wildest imaginations back then)..”

“for the 5000th time from my phone ! The times, they are always changing #challengeeverything “

We keep talking of a massive paradigm shift coming up sometime in the near future, but aren’t we part of one all the time ? Ideas, once inconceivable, are today’s everyday reality. I mean, for eg., very few, if anyone, would have imagined it to be possible one day that 2 people thousands of miles apart could watch eachother walk and talk in real time – Stuff of Star Wars ! But, the webcam and video calling are so common-place today, we never stop to marvel this achievement. Magic turns into reality every second !

Who’s to tell us what is not possible tomorrow ? I imagine a world where my mom would cook me dinner in Mumbai & I’ll be able to have it in Delhi. A future where “real” physical objects could be transmitted/replicated over extremely advanced intelligent networks, the 10Gs & 11Gs who knows, in real time ! In fact, I’d go so far as prophesying that this future turns to reality within my lifetime. There are crazy possibilities awaiting us. Imagine. Challenge Everything.
