"Your best friend is no more. He died last night making way to his home."
"What the fuck are you saying?" My voice was breaking into pieces. I was grieving. I was crawling. My breath was so loud that he could hear it on other side.
There was silence engulfing me. Perhaps even he was not able to accept the fact. Even he must be feeling just like me. His mind must have fought hard against his heart to accept the fact. How could he just tell me so randomly that my friend was no more in this world. No, No I couldn’t accept it. My belief didn’t let me believe that!
"Answer me you asshole. What happened to him?"
With each second my heart was thumping louder and louder. My mind was not under my control. My leg started shaking as I found it hard to stand on ground anymore. My body shivered, dropping in signals to the mind that "he is not there anymore." Everything around me was blacking out. I desperately wanted to hear someone saying that “No! He is alive. He’ll text you in some time.” I wanted him to be alive.
"Calm down please" A voice brought me back to reality after some time. He must have gathered a lot of guts to speak those words. He knew how much he meant to me although time between us was tough.
"Life has done wrong with him" He continued.
"Is he dead?” I finally spoke gasping whatever he said.
There was a pin drop silence for some moment. The silence spoke unspoken words. I needed no answer.
"On the name of Holy God please say no.” I murmured.
“Nooooo!" I shrieked. “He can't go. How could he? He promised me to stay with me throughout my life. He can’t."
I started crying. I broke completely. I started losing my breathe. My phone has sided down and I was freezing. My body felt weak and I couldn't find the courage to stand up anymore. I fell down on earth, as my phone came apart. My eyes slowly closing as I was making my way to unconsciousness. I closed my eyes with a sentence and a voice which was grieving "You were meant to be with me.”
After some time, a tall figure was there, broad forehead but a thin; smiling. A fair complexion and some acne were destroying his charm. I recognized him. It was him. That same guy, irritating guy in his worst sense of fashion. The shirt which I didn’t like at all and the jeans which was not washed for so many ages. Yes it was him. I got up with a force. My head felt heavy as if I was hammered. I stretched my hand. Reaching to his hand and trying to touch his fingers. He moved ahead leaned a bit and he touched mine. Yes he is a live. I cried as soon as he touched me. That message was a prank.
"Why did you do that prank?”
I cried more and more and couldn't hold it. I pulled him and hugged him tightly. I slapped him hard again and again. I embraced him again.
“I can't let you go ever and if you do this again I’ll walk away from you, I swear.”
"Doctor- doctor" I heard a voice.
"Please call doctor soon"
"What happened beta?”
I could hear several voices. Creating a chaotic situation. His voice lost among so many voices. I couldn’t understand what was happening.
I slowly opened my eyes. I saw several people around me hovering over my hospital bed. I was in the hospital.
"What? What am I doing here?” My eyes grew wild and I was aghast to see the hospital environment around me.
"Beta. Just relax everything is fine.” My mother sat by me.
“What am I doing here?” I shouted out of irritation. "Where is he? Call him right now"
"Who he beta? We all are here.” She explained.
My face fell silent. I looked at their faces. There face was numb as well. They also knew that he was my best friend in this unknown city.
My mum held my hand and put her arm on my forehead. It signaled me. My breath was heavier and hotter.
"Nurse injection please" I heard the last sentence.
"You are too irritating. Why don't you just take a break and not disturb me?" I texted him, clearly; sending a hard message of not disturbing me.
"You sure? You really don't want to disturb you? Am I so irritating?"
"Yea you are. Now can I resume my work?
"Fuck off" last message to show that my saturation point is no longer able to hold me.
I call him best friend but things turned into mess many times. With time, importance decayed but the tag of best friends was there. I knew his and my life has never been easy to live. His only helping hand was me. I enjoyed the perk of being his best friend always. I didn't justify my act many times but he always stood with me. That's why I loved him so much.
He must have gone to walk after my last conversation with him. I didn't know that what had happened with him but I knew I missed the star of my life who stood by my side all the time.
It’s almost two weeks now. My late night chat has ended now around eleven. Cell never beeped at three after that. No one threw any compliment or dislike comments on my dp. Everyone seemed normal except me. I never got a good morning message from that number again. No facebook tag or snapchat for me after that. No one told me how beautiful I am looking. No one came along me to make me feel alive. No one after that, spent time with me to enjoy my enjoyment. They all spent time to enjoy themselves. I was left alone in a crowd, less bothered how I am doing. Life ditched me and didn’t give me a chance to tell…
I wish I could stay with him for a longer period.
I wish I could tell him how much he means.
I wish I could tell him how life has been so comfortable having him around.
I wish I could tell him how his escape was emptying my life.
I wish I could tell him how life is so void without his unexpected calls and messages.
I wish I could tell him how happy I was having him in my life.
I wish I could compliment him for whatever I liked him about.
I wish I could dedicate songs just like he used to do.
I wish I could bring cake on his birthday just like he brought for me.
I wish I could just stand by his side just like he did. Although it caused irritation at times.
I cried watching our snaps again, though in every snap he was looking messed and I was beautiful. Still he never insisted to delete those snaps rather deleted those which presented him.

I had lost focus from the traffic light, drifting to my own world when suddenly I was back to the ground. I found the people around were blowing horns as I was driving too slowly, even though my eyes were open but her picture, Akshi, it was right in front of me making me recall the message again and again, every word nudged from him.

Since the day of the release of my book titled "e-Love* *Terms & Conditions Applied", my name got replaced with my debut novel’s name. People started calling me by the title of my novel “e-Love”. This is something an author always looks for. The day when the book was released, the question which was repeatedly asked was “what is e-Love?" I tried to answer and put acute efforts to highlight the real meaning of e-Love. As a part of human behaviour I was counter questioned, "It's very common these days, what's in your book that makes it different?" “Every love story is different in some or other way. This story will tell that every time in life we make some choices and how those choices shape our further lives." I said. Through this book I am not particularly concentrating on love but trying to show one big change that we gradually embrace in our life.
Today a smart phone has replaced many objects like video game which used to be fascinating for a kid, television for which siblings used to fight to see the desired television show, physical calendar where we used to put a circle around a date and make a note, and most importantly, the way of our traditional conversation. Earlier, on every occasion we used to call our near and dear ones to wish them. It was a way of showing our love and affection towards them. If the call was not made, it was a mark of forgetting the occasion. Now do we call on every occasion? There will be a pool of people in a group like family, friends or something. On a special day the group admin will change the name of the group and bingo, people will post their messages in the group. Ironically, many a times it happens that it is later discovered that the person for whom all happy messages were sent was not active and that would become the topic of the next conversation. People will forget the real event and then will debate on some other topic and ultimately they would laugh and forget the matter. Dramatically, now to check if our beloved one is sleeping or not, we would check their last seen on WhatsApp or their last active moment on Facebook. When there was no Facebook or WhatsApp how did people use to check? Walk towards their room, open the door without making din, pop into the room and see. Smile looking at their face and go back closing the door behind them. Wasn't that an amazing feeling that has been lost into this technological era?
Every façade of life has changed to a dramatic limit and now we find that nothing can happen to go back to previous old life where technology was supplementary to fulfil the needs. How many of us would like to go and live in a peaceful place where there would be no internet, no technology? For instance you may agree on it but if I add the word “permanently”? Hands which were raised are now getting a place on or around waist. Right? My whole point of this write up was to tell that no doubt technology has lead us to live a lavishing life and has made it full of comfort but has it unleashed the true potential of our life? Don't we prefer to do everything on mobile rather than doing it in real life? We prefer playing candy crush or temple run rather than playing some outdoor games which would also make us more physical and strong?
While coming to the end of this article, I would request you to make a list of your goals and against write the way to achieve those goals. Now draw a column beside; the way to achieve those goals and write the caption “use of technology” and again draw a column near to that and write anything which can be alternative of the technology. One by one write the goal, way to achieve those goals and write use of technology to achieve and finally write the alternate.
Post this exercise, you will be able to judge for yourself how much this articles holds true for you as well and whether you would like to bring a change in your life with respect to technology.
There is a world outside the virtual world, if we can get some time let’s explore that creation of God, it might give us some wonderful moments.
I tried best to illuminate the impact of "e" in our life and article is inspired from my book e-love, a love saga written in virtual world.
Thank you for patience reading. Do write your thoughts on the same.

Any need to post my review about the autobiography? I think there is any need to post. When God of cricket Sachin himself wrote his story, there could not be any chance to give less then 5 star. I feel even ***** (5 stars) can't do justice to the book.
Beautifully scribbled the journey of one of the finest cricketer, India has ever produced. Needless to say this book gives insight of Sachin's life and how did he mange to become the greatest cricketer of the history.
A must read for every one who likes cricket. It gives a chance to travel the past time when a sixteen year boy played his first international cricket match. It gives a chance to see how did Sachin go ahead with his career and became legend of the game.
Happy to know about him and will always cherish his contribution to the game.
