Holiday without internet…

It’s been unusually long time I’ve written here. Hope you all are doing well. I’d been on a holiday with no internet access.

The moment I came to know that it would not be so possible for me to access internet for a week I was dumbstruck. Soon I realized, these days I started taking things the way they come when no escape. Eventually I believed the time would not give me a chance to get disappointed about it once again. When on a holiday, time runs faster than ever, we be busy like never.

As foreseen, days started moving faster. Life without internet was of course not the same as that of with it, nonetheless it was definitely not routine for me at least. I’d like to mention about the person who was sad and happy about it, my mom. She wanted to show it to her students, got naturally disappointed as she couldn’t. The next moment she turned to me and said “Good that you can not access it here. Now you will have lot to do other than surfing”

Even I convinced myself nicely by thinking about some tasks which I would be required to do if I could access it and otherwise not. I felt “even it’s good too!”

Actually it was more than good as I myself was ready go to my relatives’ houses, to meet friends, to spend time with an infant next door, to check the neatly and innovatively arranged library room of my father at home and what not. I had time to roam around by walking which otherwise I expect to get dropped by my father.

The best part of the holiday this time round was meeting my childhood buddies after a real long eleven years. We were so happy when we saw each other. They were my classmates from 6th to 10th in the high school. School friends brought my so beautiful and hidden memories back on track.

I’d been to my school to participate in the Independence Day celebrations. It was the same place where I participated in five successive Independence Day celebrations during my schooling and the most memorable one was the last but one. We had a NCC parade for which I was the proud Sargent.

You know what, being in a comparatively and competitively good position professionally, being one among the participants, teachers who know me for years, seeing the students doing what I had been through when I was in their position, is the best experience that happened to me over there. May be, it was hidden and waited for me to come and collect!

Neither had I expected it would be so heartening when I was a student nor I had expected it to be so dumbfounding when I decided to attend the celebration, that’s what life is. It was a great gift in the form of time I spent there.

For a moment I thought what would I be doing in that time if I hadn’t been to my school that day and if I had a chance to access internet. Perhaps I would have been online on Facebook, I would have written another post on the Independence Day or something or the other like that. I had an awesome half day spent in my school, thanks to everyone who were present over there.

In the due course of my stay at home I completely got realized what my mom said, that I will have lot to do other than just surfing. Also, I got realized that the surfing I do is not a necessity by it’s own, rather the addiction make it so. I would suggest everyone to check back on this at your end, if its necessity or addiction.

Finally, its very simple… Surfing is good but don’t overdo it. Give your time to every work of you, every person around you, as deserves.

catching up with old buddies... thats really amazing :)
but for the friendship to be alive we need communication and for that internet/mobile are essential in today's world i guess, just that we need to know where our full stops and comas are!!

Beautifully said, Prams. On some days or weeks I purposely absent myself from the internet just so to check out what I've been missing in real time. And true there's plenty. Although the internet is much valued because, as your poster says 'I love my computer because my friends live in it', still it is not the whole of our lives. We have the rest of it waiting for our attention too. It is wise to know that everything should and has its own time, meaning, place, and space in our lives. God bless you and your family, :-)
