First and foremost reason --> Rains. Due to rains that we received fortnight ago telephone lines were under water and that means no internet.
Second reason may be I was feeling that I was really addicted to internet. From the day internet connection was down I would switch on the modem every 5 minutes or so to check whether I could browse, but only to find that i couldn’t, made me more desperate. This continued for some days when I finally visited the cybercafé and posted the last entry It came to me that I am so dependant on cyber world.
When i was in school till 12th Standard i didn’t have a computer. Computer in those days was considered luxury and i remember myself once visiting my friend’s home, for he had asked me to pay visit, as he had brought a new PC. I was mesmerized by the games he played like age of empires 1 and NFS, so colorful they were(As the games I had played in computer lab of our school was Prince of Persia the old Dos version)! He didn’t allow me to even touch the keyboard and i really envied him. Deep inside my heart a desire to pursue some degree which has Computer associated with it grew strong, for that would force my father to buy me one PC and i could play games!
Luckily by god's grace i got an engineering seat in Information Technology and my dreams came true. And then the games, the internet, all came with it. Although nowadays I don’t play games, but internet, it has become part and parcel of my life. I have become restless without it.
So i made up my mind, unless the internet connection becomes stable, I wouldn’t surf.
Thanks Whim, Hannah, Robin and Parth and all others for caring about me. Love you all.
