Hope all are in high spirits. I am back home after a month long shoot from South Africa and have some free time at hand, so thought of logging on and checking mails and stuff. Internet- It’s one of the best things that has happened to us, And I have decided to make the best use of it. I was already very active on Facebook when one day it dawned to me that here’s another way where not only can I express myself but also can connect to you guys more. So here I am.
The Internet has fundamentally transformed our lives in ways that we could never have imagined about a decade ago. Its influence on how we connect with each other has been the single most defining factor of the new millennium.
This is the era of networking and when you think about it, we are actually living in a very exciting age, one where you can connect with just about everyone and everything at the click of a mouse. And this is not restricted to individuals or groups - you can literally plug into the universal consciousness and enter a parallel e-world where every person is ‘connected 24 by 7’.
It’s almost as if we have this great supercomputer running on human energy with an infinite number of links that throw up a multi dimensional range of emotions, utterly fascinating and extremely compelling at the same time.
Most importantly, the Internet has played a vital role in changing the one-dimensional way in which people used to previously get information, which would more often than not, end up shaping their perceptions in a rather skewed manner.
For instance- the story of the five blind men and the elephant. For those who skipped this one in school, it’s about how each one of them bases his impressions on the portion of its body he comes into contact with. The one who gets hold of the tail declares that the elephant is like a rope, the one who grabs its leg swears that it is like a tree trunk and so on.
Similarly people often end up making up their minds about people they have never met - especially celebrities - after just glancing through a few gossip columns. Someone would tag you in one manner another would fit you in one slot.
Having been through this sort of multi dimensional assessment myself, this blog is my way of saying there’s a lot more to me than just a sum of all the parts people tend to gossip about. I am what I am and through this blog, you will in time, get to know the real me.
Until my next post you guys can catch me on Khatoron Ke Khiladi on Colors channel. Some time later I'll write about how it was to be there.
Hugs and happiness,
