And Prosperity for All

Lagaan of the modern day India – Imagine this, the local village hero Bhuvan SMS’s the popular village belle Rukmini, to meet him at the local watering hole, which Rukmini retrieves on her Blackberry handheld while listening to the Podcast of Ajmeri Baba’s daily mystic musings, at the local health spa and cycling on the Nordi-Trac furiously while the creepy Romeo in the cycling row behind her is salivating at the sight of her thongs sticking out of the spandex ‘Abercrombie & Fitch’ cycling shorts. Whew. Much later Bhuvan and Rukmini drive off into the sunset in his spanking new Boxster, while the Bang & Olufson speakers blare 50 Cents courtesy local satellite radio XM Akashvani, while the thong staring creep is left biting the dust, with a tube of Preparation H, for his hemorrhoids, from all that excessive cycling. And the lusty fornicating that follows in the nearby woods on the backseat of the Boxter will be recorded on Bhuvan’s Nokia 6800 to be MMS’s all across cyber world, much to the chagrin of local Nari Mukti Sangathans. Our very own desi ‘Forrest Hump’ the movie, life is like a box of dhoklas, you never know which one makes you fart.

If reports are to be believed, all this happening in Igatpuri, Machalipattinam or Jhumritaliya, thanks to the trickle effects of the BPO boom happening in India. Woohooo…Dhoom macha le,Dhoom macha le …Dhoom. Check out the entire article here

I wonder if the spark of technology shall erase the prejudices and make people more flexible or will they still nurse superstitions with fondess and burst coconuts on the doorstep of every new office to usher in an auspicious beginning.

Technology rarely plays into ridding superstions or age-old formed society norms. Computers will still be bought and red "tikkas" will be applied to them, to make them run better. Dont see that changing in the near future.
