Hello my fellow bloggers and readers, I do hope you’re doing well and I apologize for my absence for the past week. However, as I sat down on pc to surf )or rather waste 😉 ) another few hours aimlessly, I stumbled upon an article that talked about the human body language.

Curious to know more, I started to read it and found out that you cannot trust a person who scratches his/her nose, as they are bound to be lying! Hmm, now how do you say so? Well according to the article, it the person has the urge to cover up the truth, it would be to obvious if we tell it on the face, thus they resort to scratching their nose as a camouflage!!!

Now, I was wondering what would the person be saying if he digs his nose? Hmm… I don’t think I want to know as yet!!!

Nevertheless, I did find out that people are now becoming judged and judgemental these days. We always take note of what people think of ourselves- the way we look, talk, walk, behave, etc… and we too judge other people on various categories…

Apart from the way you dress and speak, the process of judging a persons intellect is through his online presence.

What we write, blog, scrap, tweet, post, etc have all come under the scanner and this is most prominent in the case of a prospective employment.

Employers nowadays look at the candidates’ online and virtual presence. Their Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Blog, Discussion Forums, etc.. are all being examined to see if the person whom you wish to recruit is trustworthy and loyal enough.

There have been many cases of public spats that have taken an ugly twist because of the wrong things said or rather “written” online!

It has now come to a point where the Internet is now a solid proof of evidence in legal impediments. Since we are now actually “published” ( God, I hope that soon happens in Paperback or Hardbound as well 😉 !), the things we write or speak can now be officially taken as evidence of our wrongdoing, if any.

Thus, it has become a valid point that we need to exercise caution while we are on the wire. However critics ( and by this I mean, my ever-thinking brain 🙂 ) argue that it now has hampered the freedom of speech.

With the invention of the internet, there was a great hullaballoo over the increase in the freedom of speech amongst the common man. But over the years, with the spate of developments, I personally feel that it has hampered our growth and now is questioning even our basic right of expression.

Concluding, each has his/her own view-point with regards to this issue. The Internet is by far the strongest tool to bring about social change ( proven in the Case of the Egypt Uprising) but What do you feel?


Leak Proof?!

How much ever we can boast that we are developed and moving towards a better future with many technological advancements.. Yet, there are some instances that actually show the vulnerability of such developments/advances..

The Wikileaks’ controversy that is enveloping the whole world, has created quite a flutter across various countries..

In my opinion, actually it shows that Governments’ across the world are vulnerable, discreet and cannot be trusted at all.. The dirty laundry is now stinking in the public view of the world..

And another point to be noted is that, I appreciate that Wikileaks’ is taking the initiative to educate the citizens of the world, as to how their Government acts and behaves..

Our hard-earned money is being discreetly used in many different ways, without our notice.. And I’m glad that Wikileaks’ has brought it out into the open..

Yet, I do have to accept that some information may have gone overboard.. I’m referring to the outcome of such “vital information”..

Possible situations that could arise include mistrust, question of loyalty, bitter fights, strained relations,etc..

The word “privacy” does have no significant meaning in this day and age! Our personal info could be read by some person or the other located in any part of the world..

With other problems plaguing the world at present, this adds more fuel to the fire burning within the citizens of the world..

Personal security has now become another essential need for a human being, however when your own government doesn’t take it into account, what can you expect..

Be it social networking sites like Facebook, etc.. or the data sharing pacts between countries, it all has one thing that needs constant attention- privacy!

The expose just shows how similar the government officials behave like celebrities.. Taking digs at each other, bitching behind the back, plastic smiles and friendships, double-meaning statements, false promises, etc.. are just some of the qualities that they both share in common..

All in all, Shakespeare’s quote is the apt description of the current situation:

“All the world’s a stage, and we are all players in it!”
