Don't do so. Please

Every time I call you up, I find your mobile either 'busy', or 'you don't pick up'. What is happening? You don't want to talk to me... This is my last call. Thanks!

Take another case: Hey!!! Why you logged out in the midst of chatting that day? Yesterday, I buzzed you seeing you online, but there was no response from your side!

Such instances, with the increase of mobile and internet usage, have become very common and have eaten up our peaceful life. Isn't it! We all are bombarded with such interactions. At last, tired of listening/ reading such scripts you ponder and exasperate "What was my fault?" "Why I have to face all these?"

Unfortunately, these simple looking conversations are not as simple and straight as it seems. Hard decisions are being taken taking these tools as proof of acts.

The question is: Are mobile telephony and internet becoming the basis of your decision? Please, don't come to a conclusion (read decisions) taking these digital tools as proof. Relationship-formal, informal - are very fragile. Handle with care!

An individual carry a universe of seamless probabilities - why he or she is not conforming to your demands? There are n numbers of probabilities grinding in the person's life with whom you want to talk or chat.

Understand that he or she may not be in that position to reply your request. Understand that you are just knocking into someone's personal /private life, of course taking these tools. Understand that the mobile or chat window is NOT human. It can't permeate into one's life.

So next time, don't conclude or decide anything under the sun serious or trivial it may be sitting on these tools.

Not enough, you will find people when you call them up at your expense they wore a complaining face and starts complaining you, saying "You have almost forgotten me/ don't seem to remember me/ least you can call na....and blah blah..." [You know that they have never cared to call you, but they complain.]

If you happen to harbour this habit: the complaining nature. Don't do so. Please.

  1. Stuff in differant cultures is cool, is all this stuff in India?

  2. Kewl Rishi. We have a herd mentality. The moment someone brings out a book about Internet and Mobile etiquette, all would follow through.
    I sometimes chat on Yahoo. The most irritating im I get is, asl please. Before the introducing himself/herself, the person asks for my asl!!
    On mobile, people would continuously keep on ringing even if I dont pick up the calls after 10 rings. In that case, common sense implies (on weekdays) that either I might be driving or must be in a meeting. Send me an sms to call you back. I would do that.
    But Im sure people would soon start realising all these.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
