With love – From the Virtual world

There are certain things in our life that the senior generation cannot understand. They shouldn’t be blamed for it but they should accept it. Many of such things are the vibes we share with our friends. We experience a kind of friendship today that they never witnessed in their youth. Friendship for them is a waste of time, more often than not. They were the better kind you know…they studied more I agree. That mettle is no longer made.

However, even though we do “waste” our time with friends, the virtual world has helped us keep in constant touch with those buggers we waste our time with! Friends from every phase of time, whose old landline numbers and addresses had long changed, came back together. I personally was thrilled to see all my friends from KG grow into such beautiful people!

It became a gradual principle for me to add only the friends I personally know to my Facebook account…maintaining my privacy…although the list had more than 300 friends. (“I cant believe you have more than 200 friends you personally know!”) Then came in Twitter…now very aptly described as “for people you wish you went to school with”. It was a place to interact with people you never met! Where you would never get the “do you wanna fraansip wimmi” requests! Where shockingly only 140 characters did it! Where you could #ashtag things and make them worldwide TTs! Where just a #nowplaying could describe my mood. Where everybody is so beautifully honest.

There I went…and there I met @SI2iJaN @priyamigo @maletwittur and @VanDiablo. We all were campaigning against #ShivSena and supporting @iamsrk . Spreading things like #getwellsoonshivsena got us to follow each other. We campaigned so much that #ShivSena joind twitter ans started following us! Keeping an eye on their enemy. So we wrote #BlockShivSena…and what’s cooler than twitter suspending their account for “suspicious activity” within 5 minutes of their joining! Damn we had become friends! We also played the most awesome virtual holi ever (========>pichhh...throws u in d mud and jumps over). I never thought I could ever call someone I had never met, a friend! But it just kept growing! I met @hackernewbie @waseembits @nisnishu24 @gynelwazlib @arccleo @biorahul @manav_dhiman @karan_jain and so many other tweeps…people with amazing sense of honesty, integrity and pure fun.

But after all its virtual! If I can “waste” my time with real friends…what’s twitter? Even though, I had reached 300 followers, was listed 20 time and was more than 6000 tweets old…one day I had to delete that dear account of mine. In fact it was 2 days ago that I did it. I couldn’t take being reminded what a total waste of my time it was, with every tweet I made. May be it was…maybe it was not. But it sure was therapeutic tweeting every morning my thoughts and reading your thoughts. It was a vent for me! It was a place full of honest young kids who had made for themselves a little world where just 140 characters were enough. I did not realise how important it was for me to be there until I deleted my account. I wanted to rejoin every minute! So I went back and searched for my friends…thinking “What’s the use…who would remember me! After all its just virtual!” But twitter always pleasantly surprises me. I saw my friends discussing that I am gone and missed. How could that be a waste of time! May be ill never understand. But it sure was the most valuable gift the virtual world has given me. Thank you my awesome tweeps! I miss you all too. I am following all your blogs! I just won’t be able to give you more #FF s. Much love! and my much loved *poof* ! :)

  21. Y ur not proving me correct fast???????

  22. :( :'( i searched u on FB...cudnt find you! :)

  23. I am quite moved to see so many young people being such close friends without ever seeing each other, and feeling so deeply for each other. Your expression of solidarity is such a great tribute to this budding writer Prerna! I got confirmed that she is going to be a powerful writer after seeing her blog pieces. I am afraid through her blog she would gradually find better opportunities to organise her expressions in a way that is the mark of a true writer. Perhaps she could writer such powerful blogs because she had to express herself. The creative urge has now fond a more powerful outlet. The creative urge must not be suppressed,, it only has to find the best channels of expression. As reagards tweeting, I also have some views on it. I follow Bill Gates, Sachin and a number of other people with substance. They do not tweet 20 times a day,but when they tweet too. Youth is the time when you shape your entire life and future. One has to pick up their life goals and pursue them doggedly, like Sachin and Bill Gates. This is the time to acquire a life-perspective. Intoxication and additions are best avoided for this. I am not as young as you are but I like clinging fast to truth. I believe all of you are truthful too. I like to invite you to express your frank opinion on the perhaps 'quaint' views expressed by me. I am in the process of developing a website for life-development at Vist that an advise me. It is essentially meant for the young peopleple There are 6 billion people on earth and one billion in India alone. I wish to tween every day to each of them. But most of them do not have computers. Most of them do not even have the capacity to acquire two square meals a day! I wish I could empower these 6 billion people to have two square meals a day and a twitter account so that I could send and receive at least one tweet a day to and from all those 6 billion people - or at least 1 billion people living south of the Himalayas.This can only happen when the youth all over the country and the world stand up and grow as leaders and take up cudgels to transform their village, state, country or the world. And this would need surplus time and energy which you can save by curtailing other addictive and intoxicating activities.

    I am the villain that asked Prerna to consider if she was wasting her time by tweeting a dozen times a day! I look upon her not only as my daughter but also as a youthful person who can be a thought leader or an action leader! Who can impact the world in more than ordinary ways. I may be wrong, I may be right. I do not know. To know if I am right or wrong try to follow me on my blog and twitter too. I think that will t least initiate and interaction between two different worlds - virtual and real - leading to may be a creative merger of the two that may give benefits to you and me both.
