    YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2006 when...

    1. You accidentally enter your password on the

    2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards
    in years.

    3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach
    your family of 3.

    4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk
    next to you.

    5. Your reason for not staying in touch with
    friends and family is that they
    don't have e-mail addresses.

    6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your
    mobile phone to see if anyone
    is home to help you carry in the groceries.

    7. Every commercial on television has a web site
    at the bottom of the

    8. Leaving the house without your mobile phone,
    which you didn't have the
    first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now
    a cause for panic and you
    turn around to go and get it.

    10. You get up in the morning and go online
    before getting your coffee/tea.

    11. You start tilting your head sideways to
    smile. : )

    12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

    13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are
    going to forward this

    14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on
    this list.

    15. You actually scrolled back up to check that
    there wasn't a #9 on this

    AND NOW YOU ARE LAUGHING at yourself.

    Hello Sridhar !

    I made a note of 8 & 10 because they both apply to me to a T. So I made a note that 9 was missing !
    Last evening I went to a lecture in a big packed auditorium. When I came out, I realised that I forgot to bring my mobile ! I could not give a " missed call" to my driver ( as is our arrangement! ) to bring the car to the entrance, from the parking lot ! I waited for more than 45 mts!
    In the mornings, V will get his coffee only after I answer the night queries in "ask chitvish", not before that ! It is an unwritten arrangement !!
    ThankGod for small mercies, my microwave does not ask for a password. I am saved from more confusion !
    Love & regards,

    Dear Sridhar Sir,

    This is really interesting and most of the points are so much very very true that happened and happens to us.
    This civilisation has brought about so much change that we find it hard to do some things without gadgets or any electronic devices which we otherwise did without it a few years back.
    We are really funny creatures.

    Thank you for this article.
