COGNITIVE ANECDOTES

An effort to recapitulate and share my ideas,views and thoughts in words...

Social networking sites such as orkut,facebook,twitter etc have really created a revolution and has added a new dimension to the concept of friendship.Come home,sign in and you find your bunch of pals,new and old in your computer screen!Cool!isn't it?A great place to hang out with your buddies when you are alone,and besides you can share your interests and thoughts with them,or even convey an important bit of information!


Very recently,I was taken aback when a good friend of mine seemed to dislike the concept of internet friendship and surprisingly,his arguments seemed to make sense!I would like to share some of them..Ever wondered why we talk more freely in the internet and not in person?Ever wondered why we have trouble making eye contact with a good friend in internet?Thats because we don't see one another,my friend,a follower of the Christ says 'its always easy to confess if there is a barrier between you and the priest'!Probably,internet relationships do seem to have a negative impact on a persons behavior in the society and his/her's personality,despite its many advantages.


Is chatting a cowardly practice?Are chat rooms a hideout for all the people who find it an ordeal to deal with other people in person?


A good topic to debate on I guess...Please do post in your views.



What can I say!...started reading this book half heartedly but it turned out to be one of my faviorites! Really appreciate Alex Haley for his works,tracing his roots,he has really succeeded in bringing forth the deepest feelings of a black man.The life in the wilderness of Africa...you can almost feel the smell of the dry grass,the sound of brimming brooks,the beautiful sounds from the tribal instuments and unfortunately every thing ends up in a misery for Kunta Kinte the boy from Gambia who was taken to America as a slave by the whites.Alex Haley has almost created the entire climate of slavery,the rude and inhuman behavior of the whites and i could feel each whiplash on Kunta's back and the trying circumstances that he had to face at a tender age ...barely in his teens.The story ends up in the abolishment of slavery..5 generations after Kunta with the author himself..Alex Haley.


The joy and bliss of being free and independent was what i could take away at the end of the story...And to trace the history of his forefathers as far as the 6th generation ...Truly amazing..


A true marvel threading fiction with reality..I strongly recommend this one for all the passionate readers who are proud of who they are...I am sure this will be a priceless lesson for all of us who weep over our very gifted lives..
