There is an association of social media for India the IAMAI … and they reward me with the ‘Social Media Person of the Year’ award and it is time really to reward the Ef for this .. you are the ones that have made it possible for me to be given this recognition ..
The ceremony is in Delhi, and since I cannot be there, they came over to present to to me and play a video of it at the function to be held in a few days ..
But really … what a medium this has become .. and what a massive element of connectivity it is proving to be, not just for the times of today, but for the years ahead ..
The association was telling me that the Twitter account or its activities are conducted by those on this medium, to almost 90% through their mobiles ! I must be archaic .. I still use my lap top .. !!And in India the present strength of mobiles is approx 200 million … still another 825 million to go to connect each one of our massive population !!! That would be some sight and sound … The prospects are astounding !!!So be together my extended family and remain with one another in happiness and peace and friendship and love .. life is not eternal for an individual … cherish these moments and live the utmost ..Love
