I consider my self lucky to have witnessed an admission interview that somehow gave me a strong Idea of where we are actually standing today.The three year old was asked about his hobby and the answer was amazing “My hobby is watching cartoon and when I will grow up newspassing will be my hobby like my elder brother”.’News passing’ what is it all about? This answer of this question was then as important as the name of the person who stole Tagore’s nobel.The lady interviewing the kid asked his parents about their son.She came to know that the elder brother of the child is a student of their rival school at 9th standard.She immediately assumed that he must be the student representive of some English daily.
”Jounalism” was tagged not-understandable for the kid who wanted “newspassing “ to become his hobby.The embarrassment that covered the couple’s face somehow gave a hint about the fact that the assumption of the Lady differed a lot from the real story.The interview got over and they just left the room ,the child was too cute to be not pamperd .Luckily toffes never abandone my purse .As they were walking towards the gate “Excuse me” said I and the child turned back “this is for you” I gave him 2 toffees.He immediately flashed a smile that could melt anyone’s heart.” So mr. future newspasser shall see you on tv reading news or read you articles on newspaper” he readily replied something that sounded a lot like “Facebook”.The embarrasement on his parent’s face was truelly pathetic.
This is the story of a class 9 student becoming news passer and a three year old’s inspiration.
Social network these days ,in particular Facebook ,seems to be the newest way of todays youth to communicate with each other.Life outside facebook and sharing outside whatsapp seems so colourless as if life hardly exisits outside these .Well keeping the sarcasm ,you can say social network nowdays is the the place you can know about current affairs.If you are quite a social person you will befriend every Tom-Dick-n-Harry from different parts of the country followed by the inie-minnies-n-minnies.If you are a guy the social networks are always at your service .
You can follow any girl here be it a celevrity be just someone not even worth remembering.If you are a girl nomatter what kind of phone you are accessing the social network from,nomatter how poor you are you can add a princess prefix to your name.If nobody every found you cute ,nobody ever addressed you angel you have free licsence here.
So far people used television to know weather update now days if a girl updates “Awww it rain..choo chweet m luvin it- near Kolkata”
if she is average looking but a great flaunter atleast guys from different part of the city and the state would know about the rain . If see satisfies the criteria of being addressed beautifull or cute or atleast cool ,the rain tagged status would be beautified with comments like “Wow baby you love rain J me too.”
Voting is our responsibility and news papers run behind stars to click them with vote mark on their fingers.But social network is a place where everyone flauts their selfie after voting .Social network is a place where people convey how excited they are after facing the earthquake tremor .Instead of getting terrified they feel so damn excited.
If you are a social person you will have friends who loves to discuss personal life throung their facebook status.
Those guys /girls have lots of friends to sympathize them too.If you are a girl you will receive friend request from people who are afraid ,better to say ashamed of revealing their names .
.But they kind of write all their agony on their facebook wall.Inspired by “I guess my life is an open book anyone can take a look “ .
Clearly I would love to thank them for clearing my misconception .I know a lot of people who are model by proffesion.Some of them get offers for sad roles.They go for those photoshoots then those photos are finally sold and shared over the network to convey the feelings like heartbreak ,emptiness etc.Those pictures are actually shared uploaded by some ill at ease people who loves to convey their feeling by those picture.
It was quite an interesting ponder session,the social network conveys love through Youtube video,feeling through pictures.But some feelings do remain unconveyed.The girl whose best friend is instagram hardly knows how the freshly showered herbs looks after an april shower.How amazing the wet clay smells after rain.The guy who spends so many hours on criminal and candy crush saga deprives himself of the football matches the local boys are crazy about.The metallica crazy music lovers keep posting youtube links but fails to realize the heavenly feeling that the sound of conch shell sounds
It is true that technology is getting advanced and social network is a part of life now.But nowdays the priority of social network is crossing the limit and hampering life.
