Shopping @ 2030...!!!

Ting Tong (Bell at the door)

Coming...!!! Ahaa, Sweety. What a pleasant surprise. We hugged as I opened the door.

Happy Birthday Didi. I was missing you so much.

Me too sweet heart, come on get in. 

Didi you are looking fabulous, and this dress..I'm loving it. Where do you find stuffs like this?

Awww...Thanks dear, I ordered this yesterday on ebay. I shop from there, its a huge online store with wide variety and offers. Try it sometime, you will love it too.

Great I will. Didi I love a dress, that one of my classmate have. She is too arrogant so I didn't ask her from where she bought it. I searched for it like everywhere. Do you think ebay will have that dress? Is it possible that I can have that dress too?

Come on sweety where are you living? Its 2030. Everything is possible. Come on give it a try. All you need to do is give me a picture of that dress.

Okay here it is. Its our group picture, third from the right.

Okay now look, you need to first sign in, then upload this picture in your wish gallery. Now leave the rest on ebay. It will look up its stores and will bring you the same or similar dress or object right on the screen. See here we have so many dresses which looks like that dress you want so much and some of them are even better. Now tell me which one do you want? And you will have it in 24 hours.

Woooow... This is so cool and in 24 hours??? that's pretty quick.

Yes it is. You see that wall hanging? I saw a similar one at Mrs. Sharma's. I took a snap and used ebay, and look I have a better one. So now just choose one.

Okay this little black one.

Nice choice sweety. Lets see how much it costs? Its says ₹ 1299 only. 

This is a little more didi. I have only ₹1000 to spend.

Hmm...ebay has a very thoughtful solution for this sweet heart. Just put this dress in your I like it but can't buy it list. Then the site will ask you the reason, whether prices are high or you quality of material is undesirable? If you choose the undesirable quality then it will show you the same article with higher quality material. And if you choose that prices are very high, it will register you and the article, and whenever it will have any discount offer on the article, ebay will intimate you via text message or email. 

This is super cool didi. But what if I didn't like the dress after I try it?

Nothing to worry sweety. Now you are in 2030. When you create your account ebay ask you to upload a full size image of your's, when you choose a dress or shoes or any accessories, it will create a virtual 3-D avatar of your's with that dress or accessories on. Isn't this damn cool? But still if you wanna try and then pay for it, this option is also available. Now everything is just a click away dear. And this dress is a gift from my side darling. So be happy.

Ooh Di, you are superb.

There is one more thing dear. The ebay app. All you need to do is install this app and select the items of your interests. You will regularly be intimated about their arrival and schemes and discount offers. The mode of being updated will be chosen by you, whether you want them on your cell or email.

Ting Tong.

Now whose this didi?

Must be from ebay.

What??? Are they working with the speed of light?

Hahaha...No dear, but may be someday they will. It must be my birthday gift. I'm there regular customer. We take care of their interests and they take of our happiness.

Directly from life #1...!!!

I always wonder why is it so important to be social. From the very childhood, we are taught to be nice to people around us, say 'Namasty' to elders and everything that proves you a good boy and girl. What if one chooses to be all alone,to  live by his own and do not ever interfere in other's affairs? Won't that be nice? I mean of-course he will miss having friends, going out and partying with them, talking all kind of rubbish at late nights, sneaking out of your room and smoking cigarettes on terrace without your parents having a single clue and many more. But he will definitely be saved from bitter betrayal of a friend that follows afterwards.

A thing which I perceive in last few days is that most teenagers suffer from this. Trusting a friend like your own brother or sister and then one day complain about "he/she breaks my trust, now I'm never gonna trust anyone again." Now-a-days a new practice has evolved, of crossing fingers while promising anything. People just think they are being so true to themselves and to God by keeping their fingers crossed behind their back and now they have full authority to do whatever they want with the crap of promise they just made. This has proven to be the base for many little teenage heart breaks. For a small period they remember this treachery but forget it soon and repeat the same process again and again, until, well I can't say how long they can hold on to this, as I'm the one who is still iterating in this loop where I believe God has surely forget to introduce a termination condition. Anyway my point still remains the same. Why make friends? Why trust people? and Why have expectations? 

Making friends is the most wonderful thing a person can experience, even more than falling in love. Friends are the jerk bags who can make you do all the crazy things at all the crazy times and in all the crazy places still help you to learn hell a-lot about the life. Even more than your family and teachers. They stand by you when you need them and they are also there when you desperately want them to leave. So no matter you are dumped, cheated or betrayed hundreds of times, you will need friends. 

 Trusting people was never wrong. Trusting them blindly is utter example of your insanity. I have witnessed many examples where trusts are broken just because a little more than the required information has been provided to a third party. Not even the third party, but also to the partner. Come-on obviously giving your hot best friend's contact number to your boy friend will not give pleasant results. Well I'm just kidding, always remember if a person cheats on you, he/she never deserved you at first. You deserve someone much better. But yes, don't ever trust anyone BLINDLY.

Now expectations. O come-on we are human, and its human nature to expect from people we love and had done some favor in past. It will be stupid to ask anyone not to expect, cause I know no matter how hard you try you will never be able to stop this. Yes degree can be elevate or degrade. And if you actually want to know how not to expect then just go back to your childhood and dwell in the moment where your mother said, "Guddu be nice to people, learn to give and never expects."

Be kind to others, it will pay off...
