How times have changed

Of late , my inbox does not seem to have any new mails .Well, that statement is not exactly true. There are new mails, but, those are from those sites where I've registered as a user . Everyday, I open my various mail accounts with the hope that someone would've written something .Everyday, am disappointed. Why have people stopped writing, I wonder. Have I committed some grave sin which resulted in everyone boycotting me? I ponder about it for a while, naahh...
Memories come flooding back.. back to my college days...
Those days the whole household used to eagerly await the arrival of the postman. My mother used to wait for letters from her parents, my father for letters from his brothers or friends and me for those from my friends. During New year, the wait would be extra special. Everyday, he would come with a bunch of cards. It used to be so wonderful!!
By the time, my Postgraduate course ended, the postal mail had been renamed as snail mail. The once loved postman had been reduced to someone who delivers magazines and the occasional telegrams. But, for us the wait continued and this time it was for Email which was quicker and easier . No need of taking up the pen and paper to jot down the thoughts, just type what ever comes into your mind .Now again, almost 10 years have passed. But, where are the emails???

Back to the present...
I sit down and think - what is the first thing I do when I connect to the Internet? Hmm.. I log on to Orkut. Is Orkut a mail account? No, its an instant messaging and social network
Ha, got it!!! Nowadays, everyone's on to instant messaging. Orkut allows to write scraps that’ll be instantly delivered and you’ll get the reply in the same tone. No one has the time to write mails or to reply to one. Why blame others, I, who’ve been crying about not receiving mails, havenot written one for so long. And even if I write one, some times it takes ages for the recipient to reply. Everyone’s so busy with their own lives.So,where does it leave us ? It leaves us here in the virtual world, spending time in Orkut, in blogging, reading someone else's blogs, reading comments and writing them.
If you are reading this, take time to jot down your thoughts here and may be write a mail to that old friend of yours. Who knows, she may be waiting for yours...

Hi Deepa. I love watching your progress on this. I think you did a great job of the bullions.

When I have left something that I am not quite happy with, it bugs me everytime I see it. When I have reworked bits I am usually pleased that I did, I never think, oh, that is the bit that I had to redo.
