The world is a small place

                                                            BAR_WW_Badege        





    There was a time  when speaking to some one within the country  was  a difficult  task.  If there was some urgency or a good news  to be conveyed, we used to send telegrams. At that time we used to feel that a telegram was a wonder of science, which could convey our messages in ess than twenty four hours.  After some years  trunk calls were introduced. Initially, trunk call was so costly that  a common man could not afford it. Only the  rich  could take the benefit of  trunk calls.  
                              Talking to friends/relatives  settled abroad was only a dream. But this dream was also fulfilled . International calls became affordable.  But it was quite time consuming. The call had to be booked through the telephone exchange. Some times  it used to take hours waiting for  a tinkle from the telephone exchange.
                           Then came  information Technology with a bang.  Through the Internet we can be in touch with our  near and dear ones instantly. Besides the traditional telephone there is Skype, Viber ,Whatsapp and many more through which, we can talk as long as we want,without any patment. The  world is indeed a small place!!
