World Headlines in 2060 - India #1

"Ajmal Kasab is dead"

            In one of the most remarkable turn of events of the year, Ajmal Kasab breathed his last at his residence in Arthur Road Jail. His health started to fail since the last two days and the doctors almost timed his demise to precision and hence there was this The Truman Show kind of coverage of his last two days. 
  • Unconfirmed reports suggest that Al-Qaeda had sponsored the entire show on 50 of the 2456 National television news channels that covered the entire episode. 
  • Film producers from across the country have already sought rights from the channels to make movies based on various aspects of the life of Ajmal Kasab.  
  • 26/11 victim's grand kids from across Mumbai have begun celebrating and one such caught on News Channel Camera was seen saying "Patience and perseverance of the Long Arm of Indian Justice has given him the capital punishment in the best way possible.
  • Pakistan had sent its deepest condolences for the fact that it had just considered running an inquiry to establish Kasab's identity as a Pakistani but its rather unfortunate that he is no more.  As a quick response to Pakistan's statement, The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has released a statement "We are very happy on Pakistan's initiative and would like to commit that Kasab's body would be preserved till Pakistan completes its inquiry on finding his nationality."
  • The entire Kasab's episode, journey and his existence in India has received very positive feedback from lots of terrorists and almost everyone are unanimous in their thoughts of shifting their terror base to India. When asked why, one was proud to state that "Here we get a lot of respect and concern and most importantly we can lead a dignified life as India's core value of Athithi Devo Bhava  is very much extended to us, if not all."

World Headlines in 2060 - America #1

"A success for US in their war against terror as they find Weapons of Mass Destruction PHOTOS in N'Djamena, CHAD"

Photo Courtesy: US, Dept of State

         In a major breakthrough for the US in about 60 years of their WAR AGAINST TERROR, they finally proved their posthumous critics wrong after unearthing "Original photocopies" of hundreds of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) photos. It is dubbed as the biggest haul by the US since the beginning of their war against terror that started way back in 2001, after the 9/11 attacks on the WTC twin towers. With this conquest of CHAD, one of the central part of the African Continent, US has just announced that "their hard work and strong goals in eradicating terrorism from the face of the Earth has just been rewarded soundly". This has instilled confidence in finding WMD in as soon as another 40 years. Highly placed sources quoting Intel reports suggested that now since entire Africa has been conquered sanitized by the US, they are almost certain that the WMD have been move to Europe or Asia by the Saddam Hussein loyalists. The US President is expected to fly to Ground Zero and make a speech from there, thanking all the 'wise minds' who've supported and stood beside them in this WAR AGAINST TERROR.

            The world is changing at such a rapid pace be it the Governments of yesterday having become Ex-governments today, sporting records that stood for decades being toppled today to as simple as strangers yesterday to becoming 'Friends' today. 

             Doesn't the last one sound familiar to you?  Well, if it didn't, in a way its good that you are yet to become 'socially networked' and you may or may not read further on. But if it does then welcome aboard for the next few minutes on a look at how 'social' have we become. Social Networking has become abuzz since the past few years and as on date we can see companies, technologies and products are doing way more than one could have ever imagined a few years ago, in incorporating the habit of 'social networking' in all the possible ways in a common user's life. Lets have a look at what have we become, in the name of being 'socially' networked.

             Now why Facebook, of the hundreds of 'social networking websites'?  One - it has the largest user base, two - that's what is so popular in this part of the world and finally three - Orkut's dead!!!
  • We are ready to be 'friends' virtually with those we may not know and may not even like in real.
  • We invite scores of people to be our 'neighbors' but do not bother to even know whether our neighboring apartments are even occupied.
  • We don't even show a "I liked it" face to our beloveds for the delicious food they cook for us to eat but then jump like a madman in expressing our 'like's when someone puts up an update stating that they just made coffee themselves.
  • These days many feel so very thing about wishing people in-person for festivities citing countless reasons but instead would make all the time in 'google'ing for a good celebration pic and tagging countless of 'friends' and in the name of wishing,make the life of those who've signed up for notification updates via email, feel miserable after being flooded with emails of which not even 5% of those would be from someone whom they really know.
  • Some people won't even check for their baggage or their accomplices (if any) first at the airport they land, but touch base with Facebook in updating their locations, some even update that in advance even before boarding their flights.
  • We answer to "What's on your mind?" on Facebook, even multiple times a day but hardly feel like answering our loved ones who ask us the same with all sorts of care, concern and affection.
  • Many a time we won't even budge a little and make all faces when asked to shop for the household and we either don't do it or do it very late however what not we all do in the name of 'Farming' on Facebook.
  • Relationship status changes or re-emphasizing one's 'single'ness are effected mostly for attention grabbing rather than the emphasis of the underlying fact behind such status updations.
  • Its understandable that the photo and video sharing are directed at getting likes, feedbacks, opinions, elations BUT sadly the focus is predominantly on HOW MANY people 'Like'd it and commented on it. With or without our knowledge it turns out to become an obsession and because of this people range from being upset on someone to even get to the level of un-'friend'ing someone just because they did not 'Like' or 'Comment'.
Having noticed all the above mentioned happenings, I could just say that FACEBOOK is a
