Old man and The C[omputer]
Getting old makes me feel low, why hide those feelings? My friends assure me that I am not an old man. Of course, my wife disagrees!
The desire to stay young grows higher as diabetes, blood pressure and their accompaniments keep raising their head. There are many ways to stay young [in spirit]. Booze and Blogs are two things that raise your spirits high. While the former is very effective, and its use is recommended only with discretion [yes with discretion, I repeat; lest people draw wrong inference about me – when you blog you have to worry about how you project yourself, man!], the use of latter brings to you a lot of new friends from blogosphere. For the lonely [and old, it is obvious] soul who has disconnected his ties with his little world [or vice versa, why take the blame?] it is so touching!
But there are young people who are interested in what old people do! I have documentary evidence now. And they are the freelance writers [may their tribe grow!]. They kind of remind the society that there are good minds at work albeit old.
Here is one such report in the Times of India, Do read it [Link]
Getting a reference in a newspaper or a magazine isnt something new to a seasoned & colourful person like you!
But to see it coming for blogging is indeed special !
And ofcourse, there are young people who are interested in knowing what the old people do. And think too !
Much as the young think that Google is the name of the new God, Google gets by with people like you ! In the millions !
Many congratulations once again sir. And wishing you the best for many more ! 🙂
Yes. Its wah bhai wah, and many congratulations, yourself ! Nice way to start a Sunday morning, with Gauri appearing on gmail chat and then I saw her mail to both of us…:-)
About this title, reminds me of what happened when someone left C out, in SA..
To my mind it just reiterates the saying " Old, indeed is Gold !" 🙂
Also goes on to show that we can be pretty adaptive as people, if we are willing to accept change!
Fantastic. I understand what you are saying. For me too, age seems to be creeping. But looking at you in wonder and the things that you associate with – just mind blogging. Hats off!
Beautiful Sir!! Nice post!! and keep writing!!
young people are very much interested in the thoughts, a way of looking at things & experience 🙂
Though i feel bad about all those wise people who may not know the power of blogging!
