This is my loving tribute to my family's best friend - the T.V Remote! We miss you.
What on earth is the remote doing being the topic of a write-up you think? Well, pardon me but i think you are underestimating the importance of this humble instrument in our modern lives. The remote holds the key to entertainment in today's household. Man, woman, and child have their designated programs & particular times for their daily dose of recreation. And the way to fulfillment is the remote. The billion dollar question is who holds the remote! He decides whether you are happy or forced to watch something that day.
If its the child, well then be ready to go through hours of Tom & Jerry or endless hours of Doremon, Kiteretsu, Chota Bheem, Krishna, Hatori. If its the man, of course its either IPL, soccer, AXN or Udhaya or Ushe TV with their collection of kannada movies & comic scenes respectively. If its the woman, you got it - Zoom, Headlines Today, Star movies, HBO, TV9 or any other "gossipy" channel!!
Our remote was literally on its death bed. It was once almost dead after the innumerable falls it suffered and was nearly resurrected to life. Now its held together by tapes all over its small body & my constant prayer. Just so it doesnt fall apart again. If it falls one more time, that would be THE END. No more easy swapping of the channels. No more 'choice'. We will get stuck with watchnig whatever channel is playing & not be able to constantly surf the over 82 options available every three minutes. So can you imagine what life would be like without this humble instrument you are holding in your hands?
But fall it did.
We miss you dear remote....till the time someone else takes your place!
