I loved this post and going get to know more about this book and limit the use of technology.
i am always in awe of people who still can manage without the benefits of the cellphones – I have read many a times about Warren Buffett and some other big names ~ who dont use a cell phone. I am glued to the Google and the WIkipedia and its not long before we have syndromes with their names ~ hehe 🙂 I have a Google syndrome ~ whta do you have Bing Syndrome or Yahoo Syndrome… Lets face it, though tough ~ we have limited or put brakes on the use of our vast brains instead taking help of the tenologies available at the fingertips and unaware of it ~ the same useless brain would pass on to next generations!!
May be we are the generation with good quantity of time (or not! ~ previous generation indian oldies had 90+ years of life with no blood pressure + diabetes + heart diseases – WTH! ~ with no or less amount of Technology at their hands).
With a similar group disccusion going on throughou t the last week ~ i think its time to think about the amount of time we spend on unwanted things and miss something’s ~ which at last are of no use at out sixties and seventies (err.. fifties for a few ones!)
Saw the books of Ramayana and Upanishad’s and the Mahabhrata just a few days back. Mahabharat (or Jay~ another name of it) – if reading of it takes a few months or years – come to think of writing such a novel with the history of a few generations, then the War and then the results of it with minutest of details of the warriors and their armoury! unimaginable now!! Its Creation @ its peak!!
