Our tryst with Technology

I remember writing as my hobby since my seventh standard. When I was in school I was a quiet child who kept to myself. I would maintain diaries. I would enter every
Day's happenings. This excited me so much. These Diaries were kept locked away in a suitcase. Later like most books I found it difficult to store these diaries as they became voluminous but lately with the 21st century the tablet has helped me to fulfil my writing zeal in every way. I find writing in the tablet much easier. Correcting mistakes with the help of the dictionary and also word counting. Since the tablet is more user friendly I am more on Facebook and Twitter as I can use it even when lying on bed. I love being on face book, my window to the world. If I had crouched on the computer I would have had a backache. So much so far for the tablet, the dictionary and Encyclopaedias have disappeared. I can google out everything, with the tablet at the palm of my hand, we are powerhouses of information. My Tablet also serves as a wonderful camera and we click photos and store photos in it. The tablet is making my computer lose its importance. I am a diehard rock fan and I download and listen to lot of music in the tablet. In my tablet I have from the old Beatles to the new Taylor Swift songs. Being an avid blogger the tablet comes in very handy. I am a voracious reader and have downloaded a lot of my favourite books in my tablet. Storing books at home is really tough nowadays as there is limited space in small homes. That's when technology comes in handy and the tablet is very handy. I enjoy feeling of a young woman of today by reading books through my tablet. I subscribe for only the "times" and the rest of the Newspapers like The Hindu and the Economic Times I read through the tablet. This cuts my cost for subscribing for these newspapers. There are certain states in the United states that have only online publication of Newspapers.  Other than writing being one of my passions for which I use the tablet I like its handiness when I cook. My small tablet sits on my cooking counter top when I am in one of my great cooking moods. Many Restaurants display menu in tablets instead of menu cards, thanks to technology. There has been a total technological transformation in India in the last 45 years. I was surprised to see my old fashioned mother brandishing an iPad the other day. even our elders don't want to be left behind from this great interaction with Technology that the World has taken.
