Online

Online means on the net.Well ,nowadays almost everything  is online  ! Maybe not in the real sense & yet in a virtual sense !

My kid looks up her answers on a tutorial site .She says she finds  her textbooks uninteresting.I had appeared for a legal entrance test.I studied some case laws online.I even gave mock entrance tests online ! I ordered bare acts that I needed for my preparations on the net ! It saved me the commute, in train ,to the book shops at the other end of the city.This meant, that I was fresh after I shopped on the net ...no tiredness of traveling on hot summer day ! I compared prices & opted for the most reasonably priced !

I have taken to online shopping.More than shopping outright,I do a lot of window shopping selecting,comparing ,before I pay up.Payment of bills of services, is so convenient as it is all online now.I stay in a rented flat & I am able to pay power& the internet bill online even without registration ! All without moving any inch from my chair in the comfort of my home !

My teenager has even bookmarked chess game online.She plays it on the laptop, whenever she wants to.She has fallen in love with chess after a friend taught her the basics !

My husband books all our travel tickets online.It is convenient.Moreover ,if carefully planned ,it can lead to big savings !Since my hubby is travelling most of the time,emails are a big comfort.They help us to keep in touch.

Sharing photographs is so easy on the net.Moreover ,photos need not be printed.They can just be shared online.So much saving of paper- green effort.Even recipes can be shared.I hardly knew cooking ,I have become better now all due to looking up tried & tested recipes on the net ! I have learnt baking as well !

You can find answers to most of the queries which arise on. line.Even if you need to look up names for newborns ,the net gives so many options for namkaran !

Even virtual aartis,pujas can be done on the net ! Google maps has made it possible to have virtual views of most the places on the net !

I have met so many friends on the net, while I blogged that they are more than my real friends ! I think ,there is no end to the things we can do online.In this context,I read a quote in the Times of India today ,"I like my new telephone,my computer just works fine,my calculator is perfect ,but  lord,I miss my mind !"...Author unknown.

Now, only, if I could join some weight loss program  online (sitting on my chair in my home   ) which makes me lose weight offline ! And before you feel ,I am going crazy & making you go off your mind,I better stop !

This is my blog post for "O" for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

Makes me wonder how we were managing to do so many things without Internet or mobile phone :)

Ha ha..so true! For all its pros, weight gain is the heaviest con because we just don't need to budje!

Oh yes, Vasudha, online is the way to go. My husband too prefers to buy tickets and do bookings online. I do most of my reading online through Kindle. :)

juzta mom said...

I prefer online, may be because I have no other option right now but I agree it leads to weight gain ;)

Vasudha Rao said...

Thank you,Afshan ! When the net is down ,I get irritable & am unable to think !

Vasudha Rao said...

Yes,Prathima.My mom keeps telling me that earlier there was no net & no mobiles & still, people survived !

Vasudha Rao said...

Yes Ghata,we want to lose the bulge without any budge, from our seats !

Vasudha Rao said...

Nabanita,

Very soon ,your wish may become true!

Vasudha Rao said...

Thanks ,Suzy ! We all want to lose weight without any hard work !

Vasudha Rao said...

Yeah Cynthia,

Being online is a way of life now !

Vasudha Rao said...

Sfurti ,you nailed it ! We sit on the seat, without moving & expect to lose weight ! For weight loss,we must exercise in a physical way.

Roshni said...

A lot of people diss the internet, but it definitely saves us a lot of time and effort!

Vasudha Rao said...

Yes,Roshni ! It can be done from the comforts of our homes or offices & even on mobiles now !
