On my recent visit to my parents' internet-free home in Shimla ,I had resolved to take a little sabbatical from blogging ,chatting ,social networking and the rest of it.However my resolve was soon shattered by a need to perform so many routine tasks online-like looking for a nearest income -tax office,checking a train ticket staus and likewise.
So came the new menace in my life-mobile web.Earlier I had atleast one deterrent on my side,my laziness to switch on a laptop to get online often kept me away from the WEB,but now at the flip of a button of a small gadget in my pocket the web took over.
Yes,I admit it was not all that bad,I was happy to be in touch with friends,but nevertheless the urge to keep a check was too overpowering.It set me thinking what is due next.In a few years will we be carrying a chip somewhere on our person and be constantly online,or worst still will we caese to see the world around us and only exist for the web....what do you think?
