Turning BACK the pages and U Are everywhere:-)

  This blog I'm writting under "My friends , My life , My Phone... "

I was never fond of gadgets....i always had this thought that , it is simply waste of money.Why a person need phone ?? Just to stay connected with your loved ones , so even a basic cellphone could meet this requirement i believe.Do believe me but i was without a mobile till my 12th class......few people inserted the statement in my mind that "Cellphones Always Destroy You "...So i was leading happy life till then ....untill the day came, when i got opportunity to come bangalore  for my BE degree and thereafter my life changed.It was time to buy the "Destructive Element" and to my wonder my father got me the best one :-) !!! Though smart phones were not that smart by that time.....still i had the facilities like

How it ruined me....he he , lets start from  My 1st SEMESTER :-p....


My college is very chill about the rules......infact they are very much concerned about "US" i must say. So phones in college was not an obligation .So i started carrying cell to my class and use to sit in first or second bench ! To my luck , two of my best friends from school days were also studying in bangalore, so staying connected with them whole day was the most important thing for me those days.But sitting in first bench and sending SMS was not an easy job , so after a month , last two benches became the best destination and to grab those seats i struggled competiting others and reach early for my lectures. SO THIS WAS MY FIRST STEP TOWARDS "DESTRUCTION " :-p !!! From morning till evening i was totally engrossed in sending SMS......updating my friends about each and every act of mine and keeping myself updated about them like "What i had in breakfast", "M i wearing jeans or salwar suit (also colour )" , "Which subject's lecture is going on", "What are the features of professor teaching us "........and it continued .....By the end of my 1st semester i enabled myself with typing speed of 200 words /minute that too without taking off my eyes away from lecturer.So it was quite a "Talent" by then and i excelled in that :-) !!!


As the days passed on , my contact list filled up with more and more friends everyday...but thanks to my cellphone with 8Gb expandable memory which was really one of the best feature 3 years back....!!! In college every student has cellphone but yes the looks , the features , and the smartness of one's phone does matter and for this i use to feel very proud sometimes, my phone had everything : Touchscreen, Good looks, Great memory , GPRS service ,2MP cam etc sometimes i use to showoff also  :-p .Days were fun , and suddenly one midnight i got an SMS , to be more specific my first proposal :-) . I was shy and blushing , i wanted to capture that moment of mine.....and i Smiled and Clicked  :-) !!! My whole day was with phone on ears after that since mine was distance relationship.And then i got the tittle of "MISS Phonogenic " , and a song dedicated by my friends "What is your mobile number , Karu kya dial number " .....24*7 with phone was tiring at times but that was the only source of romantic songs , and lovable talks with my BF :-) . So for whole semester , i was more of in relation with my phone and THAT's How The Second Most Important Change took place in my LIFE.. :-) !!!  


So my days and nights passed on just listening to romantic songs , talking and chatting...., And Studies..??? I don't remember when i use to do that...but yes without music it was difficult for me to study also... :-/ !!! I use to talk , i use to blush , i use to joke, i use to was my only way to all these expressions, infact when my friends use to find me with phone, one day before exam....they came up with a thought that these days i have also started studying on phone :-P !!! Everything was cute until the day i had a bad break up.....and yes again life changed for me to bit depressing this time :-( !!!


My music lists had more of Avril and Jagjit Singh ( Songs with Hopes U know) now........i use to interact less with the crowd and more with my lonesome......I wanted to get out of it, and then one day i started with the feature of "yahoo chat " as in more frequently !!! Sometimes its fun talking to strangers , i was with new routine now.....chatting full day and I was again lucky to actually get some very new good friends . Slowly i was out of my paranormal behaviour and life was pleasant like before.


As with bulk of friends keep in touch with them i had to call with expensive STD rates.That's was quite difficult for a student like me with certain pocket money.And than i guess not only me and many people's life changed with TATA DOCOMO'S new offer 1paise/pulse. To my excitement i bought a new sim , and now 12 hours talking (rest i spent for my other activities )  which was better than chatting :-) !!! Earlier i use to decide the day for making STD calls depending upon my monthly budget but now it was like " Anytime Anywhere" offer :-) !!! Friends are the best part of life and to stay connected to them , without a second thought was the best part :-) !!!


This was the time when after loads of talking , chatting , SMSing .....god i was tired now !!! Finally i was tired and at times felt like throwing away the cell phone whenever it rings...!!! But how could i harm something i loved throughout my college life , which made me capture all my expressions , kept me connected with all friends and got me a new life every MOMENT :-) !!! But to my BAD LUCK this sweet ,cute , lovable phone had this much life only :-( !!! It fell into water and was unrepairable..... :-( ! I don't remember if i cried but yes i still feel upset thinking about this incident :-'( !!!


And here I am in my 7th sem presently.....using the basic series of cellphone these days. ! Leading a balanced life , with balanced studies, balanced talks, balanced friends , balanced blogs and yes BALANCED "cell balance " !!! But i do miss those smart features ....those friendly interface with my phone.....So two days back when i got to know about this new ALCATEL Tata Docomo Cell .....i got very excited !!! I was looking out for something to buy similar to my earlier phone with exact features....but i guess i got the better one here... :-) !!!  With its rare features like "Trackpad " and "Dive in "services, m expecting for some more excitement in my coming LAST SEM OF MY COLLEGE DAYS..... :-)

At last i thank Tata Docomo for this contest ...which just refreshed myself with the old beautiful memories...and reminded me HOW important smart phone is in one's life....i was totally wrong before but yes A SMARTPHONE DID GOT LOT OF CHANGES IN MY LIFE !!! :-)
