Midas touch

Most of us are familiar with the age old classic story ‘Midas touch

Gold sounds quite good and attractive as long as it is within some limits. But the moment it replaces everything around you, it becomes overwhelming and a disaster rather than a treasure.

One analogy that comes to my mind these days is Internet.

I vividly remember the days when I thought Internet was a blessing. It made so many things easy, accessible and comfortable.

Of late, I am beginning to think if the opinion I once held so strongly still holds good. Has it been replacing too many things around us ? Has it been engulfing all the real things and leaving us with only virtual world ? Has it been affecting the relationships in a way that it shouldn’t be ?

I wonder if the struggle without Internet is better than the complete shift to a virtual world

I wish and hope that am wrong…

Some random musings on a random day…
