facebook

Dear fans and avid readers!

The following is an excerpt from an online chat i had with a
friend .

I feel it aptly documents the phenomenon of facebook in our modern times.

oof: i am not searchable on facebook, as your search will reveal
kk: ah.
why the elusiveness?
oof: it is far too public for my liking
kk: ah.
oof: more so than real life
kk: certainly.
.
oof:
and how many facebook friends do you have?
kk: currently, 68.
oof: wow
kk: is that an alarming number?
oof: yes certainly
68 close friends
68 people and the friends of 68 people being able to track your every social move
kk: some of whom aren't particularly close... people who i knew back in school but didn't speak too much to.
and stuff of the sort.
track my every social move, yes.
oof: doesnt that do things to your internal systems?
kk: um... not so far.
mercifully.
oof: hhhmmmm
again, wow
kk: it reflects a lack of social moving on my part.
oof: huh?
what?
explain that
kk: the fact that you say wow to my number of facebook friends, and the fact that you say wow to the lack of things being done to my internal system.
logically leads to the conclusion that my social movements are not particularly track-worthy.
oof: lol
but isnt that what facebook is about?
tracking each others social movements
kk: well, yes...
but you can also take colour blindness tests.
oof: 68 people think your social movements are trackworthy
kk: and flunk them.
oof: ah yes.
and also be assigned political identities
i am told
kk: yes, i have been told too.
oof: and also be assinged a best friend based on a similarly answered movie quiz

Delhi Rose

I swore that when I returned to this blog, my first post would be about her. So here it is.

I met her 3 years back. We became friends. Yes, it is true, her parents actually have named her that. Delhi Rose. As per all official documents.

When the time came for us to part, words failed me. People like her should be preserved. I mean, come on, how often do we run into human beings called "Delhi Rose"? And I might never get to see her again.

Hmmmmmmm. Sigh. Delhi Rose, I will miss you.

She left me her email address. Should I email her? I don't know. We shared the kind of relationship where if we met face to face, we were friends. A couple of smses here and there. But we were never phone friends. And we never hung out together on weekends for fun. Trouble is, I don't know what to say to her when she is not in front of me.

I love Delhi Rose. One of Earth's gems. Very sweet and extremely helpful. Many people don't know this about her, but she also has an amazing, loony sense of humor. I'm glad she shared it with me :-)

We also, made up a special hand-sign, just the two of us. I will remeber it always. Roughly, it looks like this

I really hope our paths cross again.


Delhi Rose - I never told you about this blog. But I know that if you are reading, this, you will know who I am. Especially, since I put up our sign :D
