Conversations are lyrics, Laughter is the voice and time spend together a Melody. But hectic office schedules, tiresome work load and ever increasing deadlines hardly offers any of us enough time for making this Music of Conversation come true. Sometimes, I wish Life would be a lot easier if the conversations were rewindable and erasable, like videos. Then probably, I could visit them again and relive those moments of euphoria and delete the ones that brought grief and heartaches.
Technology has affected everyone and everything in this past decade – be it the way we live , the way we socialize or the way we interact. One of the recent development in the Interaction technology is the introduction of Android operating system and its innumerable applications that we use for several different purposes. One such application that has recently created a boom in the market is WeChat. This application can very well be called “Chuck Norris of Chatting“.
Among several strange and stupid ideas that continue to hit me , while in the shower, this is the most recent one.What would happen if this world was one big WeChat group and we could talk to anyone we wanted to. Wouldn’t that be awesome, if you could find solution to your Physics problem by messaging Stephen Hawkins, or you could ask Paris Hilton out for a date, once she is free from her photoshoot sessions. I gave it some thought (boring weekends, you know) and compiled this list of people, with reasons, whom I would add to my WeChat group.
1) Sir Ravindra Jadeja
This had to be my first. Who would not like to have the legend who ate the broken part of the Apple logo in his close WeChat circle. It was a real fascinating conversation, after all it was with the person who drove Ranjnikant away from all social networking sites. For one second, I thought that Superman could be second on my list,after all he is the Man Of Steel but then Sir Jadeja reminded me that what’s the need as he himself was the Man of Stainless Steel.He even told me that once Superman and Sir Jadeja bet on an arm wrestling match. The loser had to wear his underwear on the outside of his clothes. All you cartoon freaks know the rest of reality very well
Did I just said cartoons, then someone whom I dearly miss is our beloved Pikachu. He was my first cartoon hero, most fearless of all the Pokemons, most adorable among all the creatures of the fantasy world. I just fell in love with his “Pika Pika Pikachu…” via the voice chat feature of the application. He told me about the life of other little monsters in the Pokemon universe and what fighting Team Rocket feels like. I also invited him to our world, where he can live with me as my pet. His superpowers like Thundershock and Electric Discharge can solve the electricity crisis in India, while in his free time he has promised to eliminate some of the troublemakers from Delhi as well. How generous of him !!!!!!
3) Paul, The Octopus
Third one in my fantasy list is Paul, most popular among all underwater creatures. While all Other octopi just swim around the ocean, squirting out ink when they get scared, Paul did something that no scientist with any of their inventions could have ever dreamt of. He told us the future. There could be no one better than him to explain the hidden role of chance in life.During our chat he told me that, his trainers placed two boxes in his cage, each with the flag of a world cup team, and each with a tasty mussel inside. He picked a mussel, and for eight games in a row, including the World Cup final, his choice won the game. The truth he texted me was that he always went for the mussel which had the Strawberry essence in it, after all no snakes, crabs and scallops he ate had such a nice flavor . Later during video chat, he also showed me that how his trainers were planning to make large amount of money through gambling using him, so he decided to leave the prediction job. Even sea animals are so much better than we humans. Such a Shame !!!
The lead of Two and a Half Men – Charlie Sheen is the fourth on my list, the modern Casanova, with best one liners and jokes industry has ever seen and a beach house at Malibu, he is a real successful artist. A conversation which I was looking forward to, was in context of some dating tips from him. When I pinged him on WeChat, he was luckily idle. So, I asked him, his secrets of being a charm to so many ladies. What he replied me was ” The only way to not get your heart broken is to pretend that you don’t have one.” Some conversations can be real strange, how can a man with such a persona could say so, I wonder. Probably, what he meant was something deep. I’ll ask him again sometime soon, when he actually meant.
5) Alok ‘Rondinhood’ Kejriwal
Don’t confuse him with Arvind Kejriwal, He is not someone,who protests for change to happen rather is making them happen as the CEO of Games2Win. He doesn’t build games, but people and is the best mentor a budding entrepreneur could ever have. At some point of time, I want to be another him. Who else would have advised me better, so one fine day I texted him and despite his busy schedule, he linked me to the OpenHouse video stream. All thanks to the video support on WeChat. There he told people- One of the best habits that has worked for me is a quiet, honest and no holds barred conversation with MYSELF. (Obviously a mental chat), I argue, cajole, convince, scold, make up and resolve myself, with myself.And after that, it is all about execution. Make a plan and then make it happen.
It’s the conversations which we have, that define us, make us and change us. So keep having conversations. You may never know, which one will make your dream come true.
