A quick bite of breakfast followed with an update of news headlines. I boarded the cab and headed to office. After exchanging the greetings with my colleagues, my tablet, doubled as “Alladin ka Chirag’ to immerse in a fantasy world of the best seller that had been downloaded earlier till I reached the office. At office, the work mostly happens on the laptop and in between I connect to catch up on the social network sites during the lunch break. I clear my mobile and electricity bill by internet banking as the due date approaches .
Just before leaving the office, I once again update myself with the latest news bulletin and check for the ‘traffic update’ from the app to inform the driver to take alternate route if the traffic is heavy on the regular route. One more time I catch up with the reading of bestseller till I reach home. A hot cup of coffee follows. I and my wife then go out for a walk when she informs me that her ‘kindergarten school’ has a ‘Wi fi network’ where children were shown the comic strips of ‘Chota Bheem’ and ‘Stories from Panchtantra’. They are also taught nursery rhymes from the internet through tablet. The teachers also exchange some recipes and spicy news. She then shared some of the jokes from’ Whatsapp’ on her smartphone. Later after dinner we watched the episode of popular serial ‘Jodha Akbar’ that we had missed, on the tablet. She reminded me that the winter break was round the corner so I need to book the tickets for the trip to Kerala! So post dinner, I was engaged in one more session of browsing the travel , hotels and airline booking sites on the tablet before drifting to sleep dreaming of the ‘Backwaters of Kerala’!
The last bastion of the barriers in communication has toppled with the widespread surge in usage of tablets! These tablets are not a cure for any disease but are primarily drivers of the wheels of economy in today’s world. Countries like USA and Taiwan have taken the lead as the rising stars by showcasing the products which has brought the nations and people together.
My old tablet reminds me of the time spent in Hong Kong where the life of most of the humans has transformed radically and it is not unusual to see most of the city population hooked to the smartphones and tablets even while waiting for public buses or in metro trains as the entire metropolitan is covered by free ‘Wi Fi’.
It is time that my tablet gets replaced with a state of the art ‘Yoga Tablet’ from Lenovo which has some outstanding features like different modes of work( Hold , Tilt and Stand’) which could be conveniently used while standing, reclining or lying down. Stylish aesthetics are provided by Aluminum, plastic material, dual Dolby speakers, a high picture resolution of 1280X800 pixels, HD video, MKV, MP4, MOV and AVI playback besides many more features!
As per report of Pew Internet Research of Oct 2013, 35% of US citizens over age 16 years possess tablets. The day is not far when tablets bring a revolution in lives of every Indian by driving growth in all areas of commerce, agriculture, healthcare and education. It is a dream to see a literate India where everyone benefits from the surge in advances made in technology despite many barriers to growth!
