Electronic vs Personal
There is a reason why mankind has always insisted on personal contacts than remote electronic ones.
What a 2 year electronic communication could not achieve a 30 min personal meeting did. E-mode is good to break the ice but to build a stronger relationship a personal touch is definitely needed. What is your take on this? There was this gentleman with whom i had been in touch with on and off over the past 2.5 years. Had never seen him. A casual series of e-mails yesterday led us to plan for a lunch this afternoon. I had the faintest idea of his looks. Had heard from friends that he is a well built man. Well it was a lil unusual of me! Maybe it was the confidence that he could identify one Indian amongst so many Americans and he DID. A very soft spoken and well mannered person. Presented him with a Ruskin Bond novel.
Today was a relaxed day @work. A friend from college got in touch. It was a pleasant surprise as i hadn’t given her my number. She has even made plans to visit me later this month. Sounds great!
Meanwhile my “to-do” list for the weekend is growing at a phenomenal rate. Got to get stuff that would keep my warm b4 i freeze. Afterall staying by the lake has its own advantages/disadvantages
Oh well..its time to goto bed. Good Night world!
