We'd rather accept being ineffective than take you fake it... #OriginalCopy


Mera Jootha hai Japaani, Yeh Patloon Englishstaani...
Sar pe laal topi Rusi, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani...

In an era of extreme globalization where everything except our birthplace is on a run to get associated with a foreign land, it confuses me all the time, what in this world is Original? We want to follow others, others want to follow us and in the process, we forget what we originally are and others others forget what they orginally are. However, I am certain of one thing that there is nothing called as originality in this world, at least not now. Movies copy scripts, authors copy life stories and lives are lived as per what we see around us. All aspirations in our lives come through some referencing. So, everything is in evolution. Its just that when we see something different for the first time, we tend to refer to it as original.

Over the past many weekends, I had been idling time at home for not having anything to do. It was a great relief for me when I saw a mail reading "The Original @IndiBlogger Meet with HP #OriginalCopy at Bangalore on 20 Jan 2013, Sunday". So, all I had to do is somehow spend the Saturday as Sunday would be taken care by IndiBlogger.
