Times Now

Absolutely nothing to do with the channel, but the title fitted in perfectly with the contents of the post, and so...a debate (which unfortunately i wasnt a part of) about the necessity of mobiles in our life, sparked off this post...
Somewhere in the not too distant past, there was a phenomenon called time, which was allowed to be a consideration while we decided on things... but somewhere down the line, we decided to do battle with it... the necessity of Wi Fi connections and mobile phones is extremely arguable... we belong to a generation which grew up without the above, but are living with it now.. maybe the last of the generations to grow up that way, and so, to make it arguable...
the ones after us are the 'now' generation, not just in context of the time they exist in, but in the consumption habits they have.. no, not they, we, because to survive i also have to be that way... and so i want news the time it happens - i may or may not care about the people who died or suffered in the news item... i want that pizza now, doesnt matter if the guy bringing it drives so crazily that he has a fifty percent of surviving the journey to my house... i want the work done by Monday, if you have to slog your back off during the weekend, hey, whose problem is that, or rather, is there a problem?.. amazingly i get away with all of this (hey, no hate comments, the usage of 'I' is only figurative) :)....
i want it now, and there are slaves who will make sure i get it now... and that perhaps is why silly things like compassion and humanity are conceptual, not realistic... and joys and sorrows exist only fleetingly, for everything is only now and never later... some great man has said that there's a time for everything, yup, only the time is always now...
until next time, what now?

sad. but i like to think there is as yet a choice, compassion and humanity. or is that the polite posturing.
i admit i hate how hard i have become.
hmm really..cant say.

I have got to finish this damn thing whose wondow I have minimised. It is already 6.55 and I am still blog hoping. But what the heck, I enjoyed reading this post.

Who wants my work to be finished now? hello!! (Hoping Manager doesn't read blogs )

Hehehe..nice. dude, I like the 'until next time...' thing in ur posts. Don't let go of it - in fact copyright it and keep it safe somewhere...you never know when you'll need that.. hmm? Take care..

hey prero :)

austere: its as though with each passing generation, we are being pushed back a step in terms of humanity and compassion, and each generation thinks the place they are at is where it all started... even the benchmarks, therefore are skewed..

arunima: you never know, manager might be a blog fanatic :)

phatichar: yeah, have been making that a regular fixture... i wanted 'Peace, Love and...' but then relaised SwB had almost copyrighted it :).. and so...
