Tum and Hum met for the first time like strangers
Hum said something logical and Tum laughed out loud.
Hum kept wondering, while Tum realized that he has lost his most precious thing
Tum dreamt about Hum while Hum kept dreaming about how true love would be like.
Tum looked forward for one glimpse of Hum, while Hum kept running far from reality and hiding face from the world
Tum waited to hear “Hi” and a smile from Hum, while Hum was scared to look into anyone’s eyes.
Tum will dile Hum number, but would cut it before it rings
Tum bought roses but did not gather guts to offer Hum, so scattered its pedals on the steps Hum used to daily walk up at. Wishing that they get blessed by her feats.
Hum looks at the pedals and feels bad, carefully takes her steps so that none of the pedals get stamped by her.
Tum expresses his feeling in a mail, but instead of clicking on Send he saves it as Drafts
Tum will watch Hum from far and adored and respects here Indianess.
Hum carrying a bindi on her forehead wearing a salwar-kameez passes by Tum with eyes down lost in here own fantasy world.
Tum sitting opposite of the table that of Hum.
Hum smiles at all and every time Tum expected exclusively one for himself.
Tum rushes to the library to grab the same book he saw in Hum hands
Tum stood behind Hum when she’s purchasing pastries and buys the same pastry which was adjacent to the one she picked.
Tum bought a lavish car wishing to take one day Hum for a long ride
As Hum was getting wet in the rain, Tum steps out of his car and walks to share the same lucky rain drops with her.
All so silent but not in real….lots happening.
The world around Hum and Tum could witness all this but were speechless.
The day came where Hum and Tum story came to an end.
Tum organized a Farwell for Hum as he was happy to see Hum heading towards her dreams.
Its not that Hum didn’t felt Tum feelings, she knew it all….just that she could not overcome here fear of being loved.
She will always respect and treasure the Love and adoration she received.
It all happened during my visit to London last month.
I was at Planet of Apps Europe Conference and luckily was sitting next to BBC Technology Correspondent who was hosting the event for the day. He had 2 devices & no price for guessing – Apple iPad and Samsung recently launched Galaxy Tablet.
We started the conversation and when I asked him “What are your thoughts on Samsung Tablet” he took both the device next to each other and started comparing.
To summarize my observation:
Browser experience, typing experience & video rendering on iPad was far more better then the Samsung tablet. On that sadly Samsung Tab is overly priced and the touch pad is not very responding.
Then my dear boss handed over his iPad asking me to play around with it….that was actually the beginning.
I was falling for iPad as I started :
- Playing games
- Watching youtube videos
- Checking and replying to mails
- Updating my Facebook status
- and tweeting from the iPad twitter app
- Making notes
- Reading an iBook
When I was back to my hotel, I was actually missing something and was hating to work on my laptop, asking myself a question “Have I got used to iPad ?”
The question here is “Did iPad got sold here or its me which got totally sold out for iPad”
As I was back to India….
Mom said- “U were supposed to buy an android phone, has the size of the phone increased these days?”
Sister said- “How could you buy a mac product?”
Dad said- “Why a gadget, why not branded watch, cloths, shoes & diamonds?”
Friends said – “U are an Android betrayer”
But my 6 yrs old niece simply loves playing with iPad and I am happy to see a smile on here face.
I am still passionate about android, but the fact is if a gadget can bring in smile on a face…its any time worth-it.
All in all, it is a great device, you wouldn't really think you'd need one until you actually get one. It is great for watching videos and surfing the web and I've actually started using my laptop less after getting this. However, I would definitely want it to be lighter and with a better speaker, if that's the case I would definitely not mind going in for the iPad 2.0 wifi + 3g version!
Final confession: I enjoy all the attention that I get when I carry along with me my iPad.
