Big Bang - ver.2.0

(This is an entry for the vodafone contest "internet is fun" , please follow them at )

The evolution of our Universe was brought up by the Big bang , a continuous expanding matter like an inflated balloon, producing protons , electrons and  neutrons . This atom grew in size  and  introduced us to the new address , the address of the future : ,millions across the world swear by this digital language and the journey to an equal number of sites begin with a single click!

Welcome to the Big Bang version 2.0 , the ‘internetomania’ – compulsive addiction to the World Wide Web (W3), what started as a bubble by the path breaking invention of the ‘telephone’

   by Graham Bell , the wheels of invention have been vigorously turning , churning out new contraptions by the minute taking the world by storm. The bubble has grown in size, stature and dimension – it is so very huge and powerful now that for many , it has become an absolute substitute for life!

If the Harappans left behind the “clay tablet” as proof of their high quality of living, archaeologists of the future would unearth “digital tablets” with entertainment guaranteed to last a lifetime! The medium of communication which  in its rudiments, simply answered the question : ‘HOW’ does ‘WHO’ communicate ‘WHAT’ to ‘WHOM’ and ‘WHY’ & ‘WHEN’ and ‘WHERE’, has become an economy in itself and the seller of wireless telephony needs just two eyes  to produce an array of gadgets whereas the gullible user, even with as many as a hundred eyes, is still left high and dry, figuring our the interface and its applications! It is the magnificent rule of the ‘thumb’ and fortunately the homo sapiens have  been abundantly endowed with ten fingers ,( probably the creator did have a foresight on things that were coming,) which move at will at the whims and fancies of the maker ,who knows “nothing is stronger than habit”!

Extrapolating the birth of our Universe , which roughly took place 13.75 billion years ago, the Earth has evolved itself in a billion ways and still moving at breakneck speed , unstoppable . Now death  of mankind can occur on three counts- ‘heart dead’, ‘brain dead’ and ‘network dead’, life would surely come to a virtual standstill if the third  category were to happen! The maxim ‘born with a silver spoon ‘has to be rewritten as ‘born with a mobile phone  ‘ as these gadgets and gizmos cater to all levels and ages of society .The lifecycle of man starts with the time he is born, recorded by the digital almanac , he gets his name from the baby names directory on the web, the ‘fone’ maybe his first words uttered, the alphabet song taught to him by the media player, games galore  starting with the simple  matching puzzles and culminating in the GTA ,by which time they become masters of the gaming universe! All sports shrunk to about six inches to play from the cool comforts of their favourite armchair, then the texting, messaging, chatting and here I recall the lovely quote of Carl Sandburg , who said “Slang is a language that takes off its coat , spits on its hands and goes to work!” On “YOUFACETWIT”, life gets a twist and we get terribly excited when  someone ‘follows’ but in real life , this lurking shadow behind us would scare us out of  our wits !

The  cosmos began with a bang       
    outcome of a lone quantum
       blowing the balloon, we sang
           the chorus of W3,orchestrated by the atom

 Browsing texts, images, videos of pages
    navigating the chartered hyperlinks
      world at our fingertips , sensation of rages
          Human history born, as we may think

 Now on a handheld, smart phone or a tablet               
   weaving the web platform through  application
      tethering with 2G 3Gon the gadgets
        supporting a repository of device description

  An everyday phenomenon , sing away the blues
    games on different dimensions ,movies at an
                                                                  easy scroll
      adolescents fall hook,line and sinker, on their
        hawkers, traders marking their bullion toll

  You tube, face book .twitter, a multilayer notepad
    a forum to speak their heart and soul
      cool mobile slang making everybody LOL ,glad
 here a smiley, there a smiley, server never
                                                         crying foul

 Life made simple , easy and fun on the go
  all and sundry at the touch of an
   messaging, chatting, dating and matchmaking
                                                                   in full flow
     surfing the net , fitting perfectly into the
                                                             banking mean

 The inception of the universe by a single nucleus
   an assembly , operating system for any situation
     exploding matter and energy superfluous
         transforming from 1.0  to 2.0 version  ….

Well  folks , if you are “hooked” on mobile internet, help is just a “scroll” away !!!
