Three months without Internet connection!

I have spent more than three months without an internet connection at home (without TV too). It's long three months. I never imagined that I would be able to live my life without internet.

"To say, 'Try to give up the internet and if you can't do it you're addicted' would be like saying, 'Try to give up speaking' – It was the saying of one of the netizen.

In this 21st century, we all are like a solitary island. Like those solitary island all My friends are scattered across the globe. I remember my school and college days, my fellow friends, when we all were so well connected with each other. We used to stay in the same small town. But now things are different. We are apart now. Our destiny has taken us to places. Internet has given us the opportunity to stay connected. But is this the same way we used to share and enjoy our company? No, not at all. Sitting in front of a pc and chatting with my friends are not all the same like before. This virtual meeting can not give me the same satisfaction as I used to get in person with friends.

After using internet for 7 years, I have found myself a different person. I have metamorphosed to a different persona. There were times when all my six senses used to fill up with the real experiences of a situation. How can I compare those real lives with this virtual cyber world!

Yes, Internet has given us so many things. It has become the part and parcel of our life The other day one of my fellow Software Engineer was telling that ‘Google ’ should be the another resource name in our project plan. I can see the dangerous part of this dependence.

Enough of the background! Let me put in some simple words what I was up to these days.

I have had the privilege to watch many good movies, heard good music; turning the pages of my favorite books once again. I have given myself a royal treat. It was a celebration. A celebration of my self. I have once again discovered that old small town guy in me. It was just awsome!

If you are a netizen and can’t think your life without internet then try to give your self this treat once in a while. You would simply love it! You would give a big relief to your eyes too. You will feel fresh and energetic. Get yourself busy with the thing you love to do or used to love to do and re-discover yourself once again.
