N is for Net relations #atozchallenge


I noticed some of the bloggers are recommending other blogs and I like the idea.  So,  I will recommend other blogs in the coming days. Share some blog love with them.  

Folks,  if you love to read very short / flash fiction,  hop over to A rose is a rose is a rose  and Eloquent Articulation.  

Dia was sitting on the bed with her laptop.  As usual,  she was on Facebook. Sameer walked in and found Dia engrossed.

‘Don’t you get bored Dia? surfing the net even on your off days?’ asked Sameer.

‘hmmm No.. that is when I catch up with my friends and family, ‘ said Dia and looked up to smile at him.  ‘With the Net,  I have regained contact with atleast 2/3rd of my extended family.  Isnt that amazing?’ she asked.

‘It is amazing.  But,  do you really care about them?  How many will you ever meet in your lifetime?’

‘Wow.. I hope to meet all of them.  But, you maybe right.  I may meet them and be over in just 15 -30 minutes.’

Dia disconnected and shut down the laptop.

‘I get your point Sameer,’ said Dia, ‘Let’s go and meet some of the relatives then.  It would be so much more meaningful.’

‘Yours or mine.’

Dia threw a pillow at him in response.

**This has been written for the A to Z Challenge 2016. My theme is A to Z in the life of Dia and Sameer, a geek and non-geek couple.  Short stories on their approach to daily life.  Do you know people like them?  Do share the stories with me. ***  

The characters Dia and Sameer are fully imaginary.  Any likeness to people is purely coincidental.   The views are the characters’ own and light-hearted.  They are not endorsements.

  1. True, connecting with family and friends in the virtual world has taken precedence over bonding in real life. Thanks for recommending my blog. Appreciate it 🙂

  2. Strange! I have posted my comment here earlier but I cannot find it now Lata.
    Just wanted to say that meeting someone in person is much more better than online connection. Thanks for sharing.

  3. “Yours or mine” Sameer really knows how to get on Dia’s nerves 😛
    It really is weird but. that we often prefer to stay in touch with relations via networking sites. Maybe that’s because we’re all become so lazy? Or maybe because there’s hardly enough time, and social media offers us complete information about any recent updates within five minutes. Going to relatives’ houses certainly takes more than five minutes! 😀

  4. haha. That was nice ending. So true Lata meeting someone in person is so much wonderful than online.

  5. People are starting to realise the folly of the so called networking these days. It is useful if used wisely- like for planning meetings and all , but then too much of anything can push you downhill.
