Ek social networking site ka chaska....@!!

Writing is fun at times. And the best part.. when you feel like returning... JUST DO IT..!! (kam se kam ye aapki 1st wife jaisa to nahi hai... that you can't even return..!! wow.!) Well...Finally,after much delay.. an October blog post arrives.

With a recent update, I have been 2 yrs and 9 months old with Rjing. And that reminds me my another love at first sight -a SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE. You must be thinking what does that mean.(If not.. please think.!) So the fact is, I actually sunk into Internet with the combo of Rjing only. When I wasn't an RJ.. school didn't let us use the social sites, and the other way round papa thought.. 'bachchi bigad gayi to...??'.
Gmail, Orkut, Yahoo were somethings we never heard of... and Facebook with Twitter.. It was hard to dream. (Ab ye mat sochna... arrey... saavi ko chirkut nahi pata tha...? it's OK... Papa kehte hain...Top 3 ranks mein aane ke liye itna chalta hai...).

I remember, in the first month of my RJing my co-RJ told..." sab Rjs ka orkut profile hota hai.. nahi to unke fans unse kaise baat kareinge???" And there, I almost felt like Lady Shahrukh Khan... (mere bhi fans honge?? woww!!) So now, without the next single thought, I jumped into Orkut. Scraps, testimonials, home,photos, videos, privacy.. and what not?? everything excites us to such a blunder mode. I remember, When I received the first Testimonial.. It was such a drama... arrey... people like me... this one knows my name... and she.. she has mentioned what I speak on air. He likes my 'humse bachke kahan jaaoge babu...' and this one...'kitty kitty kota...'. Whenever any listener asked.."aap on line kab  aate ho...??" It felt like... are the people waiting for me...?? And the dialogue..."aap busy hain kya.... ?? aap to jawaab hi nahi dete...??" almost made you re-feel like Shahrukh Khan. If by chance you saw a competitor Rj's name in your recent visitors...It was another proud (pata hai... aaj mujhe kisne visit kiya..??) I wonder, if I should have seen myself then... i should have probably sunk to see myself that way... (oooo...kitni dramebaaz thi main....!!) 

Well... with this, if you are thinking... its over... it is actually the first chapter... kahaani to abhi baaki hai mere dost. FACEBOOK abhi baaki hai mere dost. 

I Joined Facebook... I guess 3-4 months ago. Again thanks to my boss.( Pata nahi kitni baar kahoongii... unki TRP to mere blog se hi double ho jaayegi..!) A few revelations..

1.The first day, or rather the first minute.. it felt like .. "Kya hai ye..??? Iss par baat kaise karte hain.. lo... humare yahan to logo ko do gaj zameen nahi milti... yahan to poori ki poori wall de daali  hai.. aur uspar bhi aapki marzi se likh do...(rang de basanti..!)... aur wo bhi sab padh sakte hain??.

2. A few parts being..Select your profile pic, give the official details, Name yourself (naam bhi asli chahiye yahan), Likes too (ye sahi tha..jab kuch na keh kar do... but yahan bhi prob hai... ek friend ne likha...'i'm sad..'..kuch kehna bhi nahi.. par like bhi kaise karoon???:(.

3. Kisi ke daant mein dard tha... he shared this with his status. Another friend had a breakup.. he copied a dard bhara sms from his in box. Ek bande ko kucch nahi mila... T-shirt ka quote de diya. Kisi event ka promotion ho to Facebook... Kisi ka b'day to facebook.

4. One even gets gifts like 2 barrel fuel, a cow, milk etc. also. I guess.. it's only obituary that i haven't read on the wall.(iska bhi bharosa nahi/... kya pata I see it the next moment.. bless me!!) 

5. And recently, another 'chonchla' of the facebook.. 'LOOK SOMEBODY HAS ANSWERED A QUESTION ABOUT YOU..' Now the questions being...

Do you think Rj Saavi has slapped anyone?
Would you trust Rj Saavi with your life?
Do you think Rj Saavi is a gold digger?
Has Rj Saavi showered today?
Do you think Rj Saavi is a flirt?
Do you think Rj Saavi ever dated somebody?
Now can any mamma ka beta tell me, what has these questions to do with my immediate life? Flirting, dating, slapping and even my social networks mean this??? Par koi nahi.. I will manage.(i have to manage..!)

6. Yahan pata hi nahi chalta.. that anybody visited you... koi competitor RJ or so.... But yes.. humne visit kiya to bhi kaise pata chale...?

7. After joining Facebook.. ab Chirkut par nazar hi nahi dalti.. recently..582 fren req. on chirkut... (yeeee!!)

Vaise.. don't you think...i named my post.. 'Ek social networking site ka chaska..' soooooo.. i have to discuss the chaska also.. so dear reader.. I must admit.. however hard I have condemned the social networking part of this facebook... phir bhi... sapno mein aapka naya facebook status hi aata hai... dhai ghante lagte hain ye sochne mein..'uss pic par comment kya daaloon?'... office main enter hone par boss ke main se pehle face book khulta hai... And before the 'haal chaal' they generally ask..'toone mera naya status dekha?' Friends imagine..."ye to facebook ka naya status ho gaya.." all in all ye to facebook ki mahamaya hai re...!!

But otherwise... iss mahamaya se nibatne ka tareeka....keep facebooking!!
