“Internet is addictive and not always good. Better be careful,” advised my close friend.
“Ya, it is. A knife can be used for cutting vegetables or causing injuries. I will try to use it to cut veggies. Anyway, thanks for the advice,” I replied.
“A pal of mine had so many friends through the Net. This Indian guy went to Thailand and married his girl friend. He had a tough time.”
“Oh I see.”
“Did you hear about a girl from Pakistan who fell in love with an Indian guy and got married without her parents’ consent. She was rich, but in the new house there was not even a proper toilet?”
“But why do you tell me such stories. Am happily married,” I replied.
“There’s plenty of scope for deception. Sometimes guys may even masquerade as pretty women,” she scared me.
“You are right. Don’t you use the Internet at all?” I asked.
“ I do. But if you had been ditched by a Net friend, you would have also been talking like me.”
"Good and ugly people are there in real as well as virtual world. Lemme pray I interact with the good-hearted ones. So far so good," I packed up.
