FACEBOOK STALKER


Facebook is the in thing now. Orkut and myspace are dead and gone! But I am not here to grant a particular status to any social networking site. First, let me greet you with a question.

What was your first reaction, when you saw your maid servant fixing her schedule for the day by shouting into a nice NOKIA phone while you were still stuck to your old model?

But now we all have accepted the fact that the three basic necessity of life are no longer three. They have been joined by some others, including a mobile phone.  So it doesn’t shock me anymore, when I see the Dhoodhwala flaunting his new Samsung Corby phone (that too PINK!!)

So here I am again beating around the bush. The point is, I got shocked again. This time it was not any gadget or anything.


My roommate got a FACEBOOK request today from none other than the Autowala whose auto she traveled yesterday afternoon for like 10 min. He did not ask her name but knew the University she studies in because of the unique white uniform. It had to be a Law kid.

The next thing she sees is his friendship request awaiting confirmation. She almost fainted and I did fall off my chair.He was in Facebook with 30 friends and all of them were either mechanics or drivers .This guy was wise enough to check the University page and find her out.
Soon, my Maid servant will be Liking my statuses and uploading her pics of washing my clothes at my home. You never know!!

I am not saying that it is a bad thing. But like the mobile thing, this too will take time to get settled in my head.

The world is heading towards hell in a hand basket!!
