Windchimes of Time







P.S.: Imagine, I’ll have to spend on notepads, pen, refills and most of all how much ink and paper will be wasted. Being an environment-conscious citizen of Hindustan, I completely detest this idea of a pre-computer era. Extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused by reading my poor handwriting, but I had no option but to write this piece in the cab this morning as I completely forgot about this prompt earlier.

  1. Loved the idea of this post 🙂 Do you realize sometimes when we use the computer so much that we don’t write for too long using a pen and paper.. it actually affects our handwriting?

  2. I can’t even bring myself to write two lines nowadays and you have managed two entire pages, that too in such beautiful handwriting. You truly are gifted 😀

  3. you can say that..u have a superb handwriting…what about people like me who were made to write in four line copy books even in the 10th grade and always lost a mark each which was meant for ‘neat writing’ :)….

  4. You have a lovely handwriting!!
    I still scribble in a notebook whenever I’m outside and something strikes my fancy. but, I cant imagine my life without this laptop of mine ! 😀

  5. While what you say is true, especially in terms of staying connected with friends and family across the globe. There are places I still prefer paper and pen. I am lousy at texting(blame my fat fingers), so I prefer writing. And I read your writing it is perfectly beautiful and legible. :).

  6. Rekha! Wow! U have such beautiful and artistic hand writing. How do u keep it neat like that? You know I don’t even understand what I write and make a huge effort to make sense of my own stuffs.
    Never discard the pen and paper. Yo!

  7. I liked this post and the handwriting! 🙂

    The paragraph about railway reservations, etc. clinches the argument in favour of computers!

    Of course, we do tend to go overboard in our use of technology in general, often to the detriment of interpersonal interaction and relationships. That’s something we must consciously avoid doing.
