LIFE WITHOUT INTERNET.. A BOON OR A BANE?


Two works around us continuously go on and in Sanskrit they are termed as 'Nitya Karma' and 'Ni-Nitya Karma' meaning the 'Essential Works' and the 'Non Essential works'.. And sure, in the absence of active Internet, the Essential Works of ours which very much depend on the Net would instantly come to a grinding halt.. 

Here we really become helpless as the modern tempo around, the speed of certain actions and the quick connections existing would be zeroed down instantly and seen in that way, our life truly becomes miserable.. So we should never expect great things to happen in the real absence of modern high speed Internet.. Seen thus, let us actively work together supporting the scientific temper behind it's existence and its future growth..  

Again seen from the point of view of human touch and human interaction, Internet with us serves as the instant tool greatly helping us cutting down the distances and other difficulties of physically reaching the remote places of the world and thus keeps our relations with our families, friends and all the other acquaintances intact which in fact is in the right direction of true human development..

But seen at the other side of too much use of the Non Essential part of it, we should sure come to attention, start teaching and guiding our children to leave that part of it as much as possible except for the limited relaxation purposes as this facility truly serves no great purpose when thus we glue our selves hrs together to our Laptops, Smart Phones and other latest Electronic Gadgets in the field totally forgetting our own required necessary interaction with Mother Nature and the our inter personal touch with fellow humans for a true Inner Personality Development..

This part of our very much forgotten life no doubt is a curse on humans with the advancement of high speed Internet and the related modern gadgets and here alone we would be truly freed when the Internet for a while gets off from us..

Looking back to my own experiences, there were few occasions in my life which are truly worthy of remembrance when the Internet was totally unavailable with no mobile connections too for few hrs..

One such instance was during our trip to Canada as we drove thru' the gigantic Rocky Mountains from Baniff National Park to Jasper National Park for about 3 hrs in the evening hrs with huge sheets of blue waters surrounded by snow clad mountains with no major settlements noticed all along equally with not much vehicular traffic seen on the road..




During that period, we 8 people in our vehicle were in total communication with the Nature around in its original state, freely exchanging own inner feelings and thus were totally together as a Unique Human Expression where Man and Nature appeared join in perfect union..


Such beautiful interaction with Mother Nature could be experienced for those 3 hrs just because all were freed from their gadgets and phones for those hrs without a say..

The next time, when we visited Ysoemite National Park in US where wireless life is ever forced out with




limited Internet facilities, our stay at the place was max towards the exploration of beauty of Nature around..


The third time on our visit to Hawaii Islands, on our return to Airport from Haleakala National Park we had to travel for about 2 hrs on the shorter Route thru' the back side of the National Park where except for a tarred road that too of an ordinary narrow one the rest was Nature as is with sea waters on one side,



tall mountains on the other side backed by spread of greenery all round with no wireless communication to the virtual world.. The journey was truly breath taking with such a natural beauty around which would have been never be enjoyed in full if active Wi-Fi would have distracted us in that time.. Truly a blessing in disguise..

    1. Rightly said, Archana.. It's the very much required part of our life and in parallel the excess of it for personal gratification is the associated evil.. A wise choice forever is an asset.. Thanks for such an exhaustive but very much appropriate comment!

  3. I totally agree with you, Sir.
    When I travel with my family, my Dad keeps telling me to enjoy the moment rather than spending it on taking pictures and uploading on instagram.
    It is always a good idea to shut down the net once in a while. I try to do it when I am travelling with my family.

    1. Yes, Purba.. That's the way we should make use of it in our life.. No doubt monotony in life is killing but the right thought here should be.. Can I fill up that with a better activity of my life? Thanks for appreciative comment!
