“Life is all wired up. I do not understand who holds the Control key” complained my IT friend.
“Now that the world has Logged In completely, there is no way we can Log Out of technology,” I replied.
“I want to Delete all my friends on FB, throw away the computer and sit quietly by the seaside listening to the sound of waves,” he said.
“You cannot Escape. Home is where the computer Home key is,” I added fuel to fire.
“You are Shifting from the subject. I want to be a monk and Enter a world of peace,” he continued.
“There is no Space for that in the Hard Disk world. Just press Control S and stay connected,” I advised.
“Are you sure there is no way to Disconnect?” he asked innocently.
“If I knew that why would I be wasting time with you instead of sitting by the seaside listening to the sound of waves?” I Escaped.
BTW, talking about peace, I remembered powerful words from a Tamil song written by Kannadasan.
“When I peeled ant’s skin, out came the elephant
When I peeled my heart’s skin, out came wisdom
I got the heart which was there before I was born
I have got the peace that I will get after death.”
