Wires are everywhere-from the tail of our e-mouse to the umbilical power cord. Few years ago, it was the sky which was dressed up in wires. Be it electric lines, telephone or cable connection- there were lines all over our head obscuring the sky. Gradually there were technological advancements and the term wireless got more significance than just another TV remote control. God's own devices appeared in the form of Mobile phones and laptops giving unimaginable power to common man. They could do wonders. But these great gadgets were followed by some eternal connections -charger, head phone, USB, HDMI etc. If they seem a manageable handful, think again my friend! There’s an exclusive set of these for each gadget we are so accustomed to use! Packing them is yet another meticulous job. While travelling, I have a bag inside my luggage exclusively for these wires which contains individual pouches for each gadget of mine. 

           Why can't the head phone just be as it should be! No matter how hard I try, keeping it tidily, it’s a mess when taken out the next time. Half of my energy, time and good mood get wasted in unraveling the mess. You have to carefully find the knot, force the bulky ear bob into the loop loosened beforehand to ease the procedure. One mistake and you are doomed. If it gets entangled even more it will mean more perspiration.  
Knot by knot you untangle it and at last the feat is
 accomplished and you think that it's done! But no nono no-no no! You suddenly realize that one of the ear bob’s cover has been lost in this fiercely battle. You mourn on its demise, plug it into your mobile and you are all ears but again a technical difficulty arises. Having lived in India for so long (and due to your negligence to the ‘Handle with care’ sign), it needs some adjustments. Adjusting the pin, rotating it in all the directions, forcing it out halfway, all in an attempt to get that perfect alignment which will fill your ears with the rhythm-And the struggle pays.  You are successful. For hours you wander in your own world till the row of battery stripes get near extinct and you have to rush in emergency to find the savior for your dying pal. The charger! It's the thing most sought after in the modern world. One wonders the places it wanders to. From top of fridge to below the bed, be it alone contemplating in a cupboard or just hanging out in some forlorn switch board! It just ends up in a place where one doesn't search for it. And one wonders how it can keep exploring new places.
Fed up of all these wiry menaces my mom designated a box to shelter these poor homeless creatures. One whole day the dwellers inside and outside the box were in peace. But it's the law that disorderliness increases. Now one can often find them peeping out of the box, basking over a table top or even lying unnoticed on the floor. As wireless technology is advancing, newer gadgets are being marketed and each brings home more wires, hence more menace……....... 
Life is not that easy in a wireless world of wires…...just think about it.

  3. No wonder they say it loud "ONE MUST BE WELL CONNECTED" to reach heights!
