What if Internet was not there?
Hello Friends, just think once what would happen if Internet was not there or collapses suddenly. It will be not less than a nightmare for most of us just thinking about it. Well what made me write this article is when my internet stopped working for two days as a rat ate my internet cable :). Internet has become a part of our lives and it definitely helps all of us in some way or other and holds a very important position in our lives.
Just think instead of your ipad you would be carrying the huge encyclopedias and dictionaries for reference, no “Just Google It”, no Facebook, instead of “Mail it to me” you would be using “Just post it to me”, then you would write an letter and after pasting the stamp by licking it and then going to the letter box for delivering it which would be received by your friend in frequency of days. Lets see how its going to affect our lives.
