'Online' or 'On-Line'

Here is a small conversation piece with which I think some people might co-relate with. This is a general write-up and I don't mean to hurt anyone's personal feelings.

Netizen 1:
Hey!! Wassss up??

Netizen 2: (Here he comes) Nothing much. Sitting idle. When did you come 'online'. You should have told me before coming.

Netizen 1: (If I would have told ya, I won't have found ya.) As if you always come 'online' after informing me. And yes, why should I tell you before coming 'online'.

Netizen 2: (Why can't you understand the feelings I have for you?) You are dumb and nothing else. Its been a long time since we are having these chats. I thought we were friends.

Netizen 1: (Here is the signal dude!!) Well, of course we are friends. I just thought it would be silly to inform you coz we are 'just friends'. 

Netizen 2: (Why God Why?) So you just came to say Hi or you have some official work? 

Netizen 1: (Why God Why?) Nothing important. Was hoping to find you online.

Netizen2: (I think he is a mind reader.) Really? That's so sweet of you.
Netizen 1: (Is this the right time to say the words?) Errrrr.. No No.. I just.. I mean.. I can't think.. I don't know.. I am gone.. I am in love.. (Shit).. I am in Love..  in love with you.. (What am I saying.. I am so gone..) I am sick.. I want to meet you. I am in love with you. Do you feel the same? (What am I saying)

Netizen 2: (Finally the words are out..OMG!!) What are you saying? You love me? 

Netizen 1: (I would have appreciated a n answer.) Yes, I do and want to meet you asap.

Netizen 2:  (I love you too but we can't meet.) Sure we will meet. Lets catch up at 4 this Sunday at the Mall.
Netizen 1: (Still no affirmative) Yup! That will do. But I was wondering if I can get an answer to the question I asked..

Netizen 2: (Desperado) Wait for it..Patience my dear patience.. We are meeting this Sunday.. 

Netizen 1: (I know its a yes!!) Sure darling. Oops..(way to early)

Netizen 2: (Ecstatic guy) Alryt then see you soon.. Bye. 

And then Netizen 1 waited the whole Sunday for Netizen 2  to appear in the avatar which he had in his mind, which he had seen in her profile and which he had imagined infinite times..But the online Avatar never came.
Netizen 1, mad in love with Netizen 2, committed suicide on Monday and left a note which said," I am not just a profile. I am a human being and that too real." 

Well, the whole thing behind this is a comparison between 'Being Online or On-Line.'

There is no problem in spending hours on the internet and surfing the web. This is what we do when we sit online. We use the internet and surf the web. But the problem starts when we get on-line with someone who is also available online

Getting online and on the internet is the need of the hour. Most of us today are available on the social networking sites and we very openly say that we are looking for a relationship (open or whatever) or in which sex are we interested in. So do we get online in order to date someone or have a serious relationship with a Netizen who may be having a fake identity?

Internet aims at making the world available at our fingertips and bring people from various parts of the world, closer. Are we really coming closer? Why this virtual world is becoming a reality? Why are their such cases in which a boy (may be) meets a girl (may be) and they fall into a serious relation just by typing some lovely sugar coated words? 

And that's not it. I know people who even before their child is born, created a profile for the unborn (Both sexes were taken into account and so there were two different profiles.)

Well.. I hope my fellow netizens (obviously real identity holders) will come with a solution to this problem very soon and will help enlighten the coming social networking generation who could even ask their parents whether they were downloaded..

The Year It was..

31st December, 2011

Last year the same day.. Why I still remember those days...?? (Can't even think of the correct punctuation mark)

31st December, 2010

Shoorveer Balwaan: What are we doing here? Lets go and party..

Satan: How to? Our first salaries have not yet arrived..:P

Shoorveer Balwan: Say something you two.. Mittal.. What are you upto?

Mittal:  Hehehe!! The campus is so large. There must be something going on elsewhere.. Lets just roam about on our Ladybirds..

Shoorveer Balwan:  People will find me weird dressed in these clothes. I am ready for a party which ain't happening..:P

Satan:   *SIgh*

Mittal:  Satan likes it.. Don't worry. ( *Grin* ).

Oasis (The Food Court known for parties)

Satan:   Man, now this is what we call MAAHOL..

Mittal:  (Awestruck) amazing man.. Lets search for our people.

Everyone found... But in diversified groups.. See, this is what life is all about. Meeting new people and checking our compatibility with them.. Facing new challenges every now and then..


Happy New Year 2011 and the first thought that came to me decided the whole year's panorama for me. " You are not made for this. Let it go and do what you have always wanted."

This day I met people from varied backgrounds and thoughts. But the way to enjoy and celebrate was the same. (Still trying to connect the thoughts  which divides human beings).

And the New year began with some songs and useless chats. Some friends were found and one more thing, none was lost. The friendship with others grew stronger.

Present Day (01/01/2012)

The first thought - Is the world ending this year? Crap.. I know.. But these NEWS channels.Huh..
Hugged my Mummy and Papa and finding that there is nothing better than this feeling is even more blissful.

An year mixed with all kinds of dramas and melodramas of life finally came to an end. No one learns early and from others experiences. Unless you experience things and events yourself, learning is not complete. 2011 taught me this.

Again, adversity and biodiversity, taught me to cope up with different kinds of conditions. I came to know the importance of an hour and that of 60 minutes ( The value of a second is still a mystery).

While the kids (my students)  taught me tolerance, I never knew I was learning this virtue. There are things which we realize later and at different points of time,  what the time in past has taught us.

Friends getting engaged and married this year again taught a lesson ( No puns intended ).

There are still some questions to be answered ( Wondering whom to trust).

An awesome birthday celebration.

And right now I am enjoying my hobby.. What a finish to you 2011. You were Awesome..:)

I have fastened the seat belts for the roller coaster ride once again which life has already planned for me. Lets see what life has in store..

Welcome 2012..:)
