New Age letters

Visit your grandparents and you will get to hear about how they use to write letters and communicate. The second issue which comes into account is that we, the young generation has lost the habit of writing.
Hmm... I disagree (like always!!). Its true that we don’t write letters anymore but we do communicate through a new and modified form of letters. One of my friends wrote a letter by using note-pad and saving it on my desktop! Other wrote a letter and posted it on the blog! The other used chat status message to reply to that post! I wrote a letter and mailed all of them!
We do write letters but in a different format…a format which is much more comfortable and convenient than traditional letter writing. Social networking seems to be helping a lot. Our new high-end letters are not only convenient. They are fasts too. You have a fight with your boy friend? You don’t want to talk on phone? Just drop an email. Solution to all the communication issues. And if we go little deeper, it prevent s many fights and heart burns too. You are conditioned to look at least once before mailing. And in most of the cases, you delete than add up. There is always a high chance that another person won’t react in the same way, not as bitterly as yours response. And the time gap between receiving and sending mails will definitely calm you down.
So all you couples out there…use emails cum letters for fights. It more effective than you think…and in a good way off course!

PS: My job is affecting me more than I can think of. I have almost written a pitch note for emails!!!

Real life Touch

You graduate and you think that life will change (off course in a better way). You dream of leading an independent life, a life on your own terms and work of your choice, a life you have always dreamed of. But the moment you get a job (your dream job) which is again a rarity (I have been lucky in getting one), the real world strikes you, in a very harsh way, as harsh as it can be.
You get your dream job but you suddenly realize that you can’t work the way you want, in the hours you want to work. You can’t wear what you want after all you are REPRESENTING your Company! So ultimately you have to follow the dress code. You have a fixed timing to report in the office but no set time to leave the office.
These are nothing if you think about the accommodation. Unlike our universities’ subsidized yet clean, spacious rooms, you have to search for rooms/pg/flats. Searching for accommodation is even tougher than searching for God (no offence to all my religious friends).
And even after so much of effort, you are left with nothing! You come from different city to start a new life in a new way but nothingness is what you all get (God I am getting philosophical too!! one of the effects of house-hunting- try it...). You go from one pg to another, you change one room mate to another, but you never get what you are looking for. You compromise on one thing. But suddenly another issue arises and then another and the list goes on…until you just kill all your desires and hopes and settle down for something which the world has to offer you.
This is what the real, rude world has to offer to you. It just takes everything from you…Welcome to the real, corporate world!!!!
Hmm…I seem to be quite negative (isn’t it? hope to post something positive next time!)
