Why you should not give me your mobile phone number

As is evident from the copious amounts of crap this blog contains, writing long, uninteresting, insipid posts, about my 'ideas/thoughts'(which are always ones that have zero utilitarian value) is something that I like. This extends beyond this space of mine on 'blogosphere' to scrapping on Orkut and SMS.

The SMS version of 'me boring people' is the latest. Traveling an hour by bus to office, gives me a lot of scope to do this. 'Concisely expressed profound thoughts about life' is usually the theme of such 'invaluable' SMSs of mine. But, people, to whom I send such 'invaluable' thoughts using the medium of text messaging via cellular telephone, do not see these messages of mine in that light. They usually ignore it. ( But this is not unusual in history. It happened to Krishna, Gandhiji and many others like me.)

'Giving analogies between life and vehicular traffic and between real life and virtual world, you try to bring out the essence of life, Harish', is something that not even a single reader of my messages has said. Anyway, I am undeterred by this and continue to do my 'good work'. I am tempted to end this narcissistic post of mine with an example of the kind of 'thoughts' I normally send through SMS. Here it goes,
"Life is similar to driving in traffic. Disappointments, like the red signal, can frustrate you. But you have to take heart from the fact that, happier times, like the green signal, are surely round the corner".
'No doubt, people ignore your messages', is, I am sure, your opinion. Isn't it?

I'm delighted to inform you that I'm not an unhappy recipient of your uncalled-for analogies to Life.

Harish said...

[Sandeep]Shall I include you in the list of privileged people who receive them? I would be more than glad to do that.

Harish said...

[Swaroop]Life is like this only.

[Arjun]I should also include Sandeep in my 'tatva hit-list'. He has been unintentionally and unjustifiably left out. Alva?

Arjun Sharma said...

Yes, this is a shocking, though unintentional, act of discrimination against him. Please include him in your list of recipients.

In fact, such a good friend am I that I would gladly sacrifice my place and give it to him. Please choose him over me for sending the precious thought-gems to.

Harish said...

[Arjun]I will definitely send my 'thought-gems' to Sandeep too. But not in place of you. No, that's not possible.
