The Lost Letters

Hello my readers. A very good day to all. We have almost completed 3 months of 2023 and covid is still around. It’s good that we all know how to deal with it now. But don’t forget, we still have some idiots out there.

This covid brought us an OTT platform, and believe me this is the best thing that has happened these days. Even the series are much better than the daily soaps. But recently, I have almost stopped watching web series and prefer watching songs on YouTube or go for some cartoon movies. Because the web series and even the movies have more foul language and less dialogue. In such a series, even kids say ‘f**k off’ to their parents. Such foul language makes me uncomfortable. Not because my daughter listens and watches it, but because the dialogues contain only such words and no pleasant words at all. The letter is lost. The Letter ‘L’. ‘L’ for ‘Lenient’. Meaning; mild, tolerant, not harsh. So I also did f**k off to such series and movies.

Scrolling through social media is my time pass. Mostly I watch all the dance moves. But recently, I am back with my coding memes. Feels like I am slowly developing my love again. But soon, I literally started ignoring the stuff I love. and I started commenting on the random stuff who ‘think’ they are great and ‘Think’ that they are educating us. So I give them one tight slap comment. Lets see how far and for how much time it goes far. Here, the Letter E is lost. ‘E’ for ‘Enthrall’. Meaning; To hold something interestingly or someone’s attention. So I am wasting my time on watching those videos and commenting on them and also generating revenue for them.

This social media or OTT platform, makes us more depressed. Even comedy movies are not so comedy anymore. Infact, they show dark stories in a comedy way. We find our relaxation in  television, but we end up wasting time in searching for a good channel or good movies. The happy ending doesn’t have any happiness in it. In fact it gives the feeling like “thank god, the movie got over”. Such movies and social media have the missing letter ‘T’. ‘T’ stands for ‘Tranquility’. Meaning; a feeling of calm, an absence of excitement. There is absolutely no calmness in social media and no excitement in watching those 100Cr club movies.

I sometimes don’t understand what message the movie wants to convey. Recently I saw one movie, where the government denies help to the finest agent making him the most wanted villain. The villain, not only smart in reading the minds of criminals, but also master in technology. So, why do movies portray that the government is actually the villain and will never help the finest person in the world, Making the Letter ‘T’ missing. Here ‘T’ stands for ‘Towering’, Meaning; great importance or influence. I greet such movies with boos and hisses.

The Lost Letters

As I mentioned earlier, movies and social media are entertainment for us. But the behavior I developed is embittered. I become very edgy sometimes. Movies are no more entertainment now. They are more of actions and crime, even portray their own family members as villains which forces the letter ‘E’ to get out. Here ‘E’ stands for ‘Emulate’. Meaning; Try to do something good. Still waiting for good movies.

Such movies are razzle-dazzle. I think after covid, all movies left the letter ‘R’. ‘R’ stands for ‘Ruminate’. Meaning; think deeply about something. Actually, many months, I guess years have passed, movie aftermath, I haven’t thought deeply about the script. “Why and how did it end like this? What was the link? How did it get connected?” etc etc. Only one think come in my mind is “When will this movie end?”

Movies never forget their disclaimer. “Smoking is injurious to health”, “Drinking is injurious to health”. But the script and mainly VFX is such that all teetotalers will start drinking and smoking. Sorry ‘S’ no space for you. Letter ‘S’ Stands for ‘Satiny’ (finishing like a satin) or ‘Snugly’ (comfortable, sheltered and warm) or ‘Sanguine’ (Optimistic and positive). So in the end, a depressed person will be more depressed. because all the LETTERS are LOST.
L – Lenient
E – Enthrall
T – Tranquility
T – Towering
E – Emulate
R – Ruminate
S – Satiny or Snugly or Sanguine.

Our Life In Social Media

Work’s Destiny

“I am not well, I will work from home” – Those were the days, when we used to cry and wanted to work from home. Everyone wanted a fixed office time and wanted a holiday on weekends. Now  everyone’s dreams have come true but on a very sad note. Yes, Everyone was forced to work from home, almost 22 hours a day, No weekends. The work culture has horribly changed in these past two years. Some went into depression, some even commit suicide. The pressure of work was so much that people could not handle it. Though there was a layoff, there were resignations too. Seniors blame their juniors for not working, and juniors complain about horribly excess work. Some companies announced that they will keep this work from home culture till 2025. While some companies even announced permanent work from home but with pay cuts.

Students always dream about not giving exams. Yes, their dream also became true but one horrible phase came in their life that some company said no placement for this passout students. Now these students either have to go through nepotism or do further studies so that they are able to get a job. Feeling very bad for these students, who danced with their hearts out and later realized that they were dancing on very very cheap songs.

But is this work from home culture right? Well, I genuinely feel, every work should have its own place. Home is the place to relax and have fun. Home is the place to be busy, but in some other ways and in some other things. I know covid made this situation work for everyone from home but now it’s time to take precautions and get back to the place where the work belongs. Employees who stood with the company in these two years should be given a pay rise. People who were laid off, should get retained.

In this progressing world, we need robots for each and every work. But I personally feel, if everything is replaced by robots then people will sit at home and start scratching their bums. People will start watching all the toxic serials and reality shows on TV and start implementing them in real life. The future of robots is a very very bad stage for human beings. I have heard many things about advanced technology like delivery by drone, flying cars, and even talking human-like robots. Believe me, It’s not good. If the drone starts delivery of food, The humans will be jobless and they have to learn a new job. If talking robots come into our life then we will require no family and friends to have fun around. This will lead to frustrations and depressions because such things are cured by human beings only who can understand the pain, not robots.

Science and technology is good, very good but it has to be used in the right way and at the right place. Not in every human’s place. Even we programmers have to go through the pain of learning new programming languages not because we love it but the old one deprecates soon and we have no choice but to learn it and that too in a short time. Trust me guys, it is not easy to switch from one programming language to another. I still remember when HTML5 overtook the flash. My friend, who was a flash developer, had to resign from job so that he could study some other stuff and apply for a fresh new job. Resigning from job was easy for him because he was not married and he had money, which meant he had no big responsibility in his life. For some, learning new things is not at all possible. Learning new things is not everyone’s cup of tea. When working from home, it was expected from us to learn new things. But when will you learn? At midnight? Being at home, Being with your family, still no social life, still no part of your family.

— “When I was of your age, I used to study in street lights”…
— “When I was of your age, I used to earn, and study at night..”
— “When I was of your age, I used to walk 5kms and cross a dangerous river, everyday, to attend school”..

Yes, it’s true. Not comparing or complaining. But in future, we will tell our kids;

— “When I was of your age, It was compulsory to study online and work from home and earn, 24*7”..
— “When I was of your age, I used to earn by uploading videos on YouTube and scoring maximum points on video games”
— “When I was of your age, I never went out. Because going out was dangerous”.
— “When I was of your age, I was at home 24*7, Still had no time to talk to family”

This work’s future will lead to unemployment. There are many small jobs in the world which is totally depend on the office. If the office does not reopen then these small jobs will be in danger. Even companies who manufacture coffee machines will be in danger. Because offices need such machines. Every small thing we can think of, is  connected to the reopening of the office. Even electricity. We think that electricity will be saved but believe me, there will be Inflation. Though we earn but still we will be unable to afford everything. Not even food delivery of idli-dosa.

Every work should have a place, and every work should be done by humans. Else, the day is not too far to say that we are dharti ka bhoj (totally and completely useless for everyone). 

The Buzzwords

As such all my days are lazy, But today was the best laziest day. Life is pretty easy when you don’t have any responsibility. You have only studies to do. But what if, there were no studies in life. What about History, Geography? What about a simple mathematician. What you do, when you have nothing to do? I search For the buss words, the memes. So I came across ‘The Covid batch’ memes, and I found it hilarious. With All graphics and videos in it, these memes are hilarious.
