“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Machines

Hey.. Peeps.. :) In this world that has become a big enterprise of machines; I find more of machines than humans. Companies are hiring robots, who are supposed to work emotionlessly with 100% efficiency under low power supply; looks like entire world has decided to work on the principle of machine.

We are boxed up in a glass room with another box called computers; of course it has contributed a lot towards civilization but has taken even more. Sometimes the hunger of getting something grows so much that we kinda ignore what we are losing in return. Remember the story: The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry? Yeah, it’s like that.

People do almost everything today, they are more mechanical but their soul is missing in whatever they do. I wonder what they do of their souls, I mean don’t they feel like putting all their heart in something they actually like to do. Why do they treat everything like a business deal?

If I gotta explain today’s world, I’d explain it as a market where we are sales executives or business development consultants involved in cold calling and lead generation; advertising to sell company products struggling to meet targets. Unfortunately machines cannot sell; they dunno how to bargain. If feelings could be available in markets as articles to buy; am sure their price tags would be much bigger than the article itself.


If not now then may be some other time you’ll need a human with feelings, with whom you can share your loses and challenges –for you cannot tell your loses and challenges to a machine. You cannot fall in love with a robot, how ‘bout romancing with a robot gazing into those digital eyes that resembles with a camera having a view of 360 degrees –sounds completely absurd.

We are humans made up of flesh with our hearts installed that is supposed to be a hub of feelings, don’t be a robot made up of metal stuffed with wires and switches that works on huge electrical power, computer programmes –controlled by a chip. Think!! Signing out.. may God bless y’all.. :)
