I do not connect...


There was a time when I could connect with my loved ones online through emails, facebook, skype and so on. That was often the only means of communication and something that sufficed for too (it feels weird now that I think of it). It all changed rapidly, actually within days...

I still love the web, but cannot possibly make love through it (no pun intended). I can connect with people still, though not with the ones I love. Somehow at the end of the day, it might all just be fake, something which is there just because you believe it to be (this can, quite possibly, happen in the real life as well), and now while attempting to connect with people I am close to, it even becomes repulsive. I still write e-mails, still chat…but it seems I like I am going back in time when there were no online means of communication. I am much more free now, yet constrained by my own disconnect between the web and my personal life.

It’s makes perfect sense to connect with complete strangers through the blog etc; even if they say what they do not mean, you still come out of it unscathed. And there is no way of differentiating the real from the fake. Not that it even matters.

So I remain online and connected, though at the core am perhaps still disconnected. 


  1. This newest blog makes me sad. It's as though you've lost your faith in humanity---as far as communication and genuine contact goes. I'm sorry. :(

    Chin up!


  2. To each his own Siddhartha. Agree, it's a make believe world and online relationships are not always real.

    But a lot depends on you, how open you are.It's tough to say what's right and what's not. It's a matter of perception, it works for some, for some it may not.

  3. Whether we love it or hate it, but online is a new way of life. Whether we are happy or feeling despair, we first share it with our "FRIENDS" online. Your feelings also reached us through your blogpost! The sooner we accept this reality, the better we would feel.

  4. There are pros and cons for everything, same with online communication,it gives n opportunity to connect with ppl u dont knw,ve nt met,nt seen,at d same time it all comes with a feeling of uncertainty. You need to accept the fact,be a bit cautious and njoy the boons of tech. :)
