The world is really flat!
22 days after I landed in Bangalore, I got myself a new mobile phone (8700g). My "connectedness" has now doubled! I am just blown away at the technological advances that have made communications across the globe easy and pain-free.
I am talking to Mona and the kids everyday (sometimes twice in a day) via Skype. A few dropped calls and poor video quality aside, we can see each other across continents as I discuss homework with Aanish or piano lessons with Ayaana. In the past week or so, I have spoken to members of my family in the US, UK and Middle East via Skype!
Instant Messaging (IM) and E-Mail (access anytime, anywhere) allows me to be connected and communicate with friends and family while I am sitting here in my guest house on MG Road in Bangalore! This blog has given me the opportunity to share my experiences with all and I look forward to your comments on my posts.
With my new phone, I will now have access to most of these tools and some more (SMS, MMS) on the go.
The world is indeed flat and is getting flatter by the minute.
