The world is becoming a smaller place as we are all connected to each other in some way or another. Social networking sites, 3G networks, 2G networks, Skype, and many different applications which are currently available in the market make connecting easy. A few years back one could never imagine, to get connected and see a person on screen, who is ocean’s apart, just by a touch of a button. Chatting has become a very integral part of our lives. The ‘ We chat ‘ application that has come out recently is already creating waves. The recent ad on television with Parineeti Chopra and Varun Dhawan advertising for the ‘ We chat ‘ application is catching up. I must confess that I am not a chat person, but this application is really tempting. It’s a mobile messaging app for smartphones and looks like it is here to stay.
Now coming to the topic, If I had an opportunity to chat with five people who would it be ? It’s difficult as there are so many people with whom I would like to chat. Below are the people with whom I would like to chat if I was in a chat room.
I would choose Amitabh Bachan for his dynamic and striking personality. For the way he walks and talks. I have always been in awe of him since childhood. He can speak on a variety of subjects. He has a voice to die for. He carries himself well. He blends in with the younger crowd. No wonder he is such a big hit even with the young masses. But above all I find him to be a good human being. I would like to chat about his journey as a newcomer to a Superstar. I would also like to ask whom he thinks is the best Bollywood and Hollywood actor. We would also chat about Cinema, actors, his close bond with his son Abhishek Bachan and the Kaun Banega Crorepati show.
The second person I would choose is Mother Teresa. She’s been an inspiration to many. A woman of substance ! She’s a saint in every sense of the word. She gave herself to the services of the poor and we are so lucky that she chose India, aren’t we ? She served the poorest of the poor. She wrote in her diary that her first year was very difficult and she was tempted to give up. But she remained strong in her faith and decided to continue her mission to help the poor and we all know what she did for the poor stricken people of Kolkata. What touched me the most about her was when I read about how she converted an Hindu abandoned temple into Nirmal Hriday (Home for the dying). Poor and sick people shunned by the society and who didn’t have anyone to take care of them were brought to this home. They were given free treatment and medication. They died with dignity and were given the last rites according to their own religion and faith. Isn’t that great ? If I get to chat with her I would ask what made her chose our country for her services. I would ask what gave her strength and motivation to go on ?
Next on my list would be my Father. My Father passed away in the year 2010. So, if given the opportunity I’ll definitely speak to him. He was a humble person and a man of mental strength. I would ask him about life after death. I would ask him if angels exist. I would ask him if life on earth is better or life after death and also if he still misses us.
The fourth person on the list would be Oprah winfrey. I chose her because she is yet again another woman of substance. She was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Life wasn’t easy for her. She was raped when she was nine years and she became pregnant when she was fourteen years. She had a son who died at infancy. She came from a poor background. She got into the wrong relationships. But finally her talk show ” Oprah Winfery show ‘ made her a millionaire. Now, she is known as the world’s most influential woman. Her talk shows have something different to offer everyday. She covers a variety of subjects like current issues, social issues, women’s topics, Health, books, food and many more. I like her for her humility. I would like to chat about her successful journey as a Television host. I would ask her how she felt interviewing people from different walks of life and about overcoming life’s adversities.
Last but not the least I would choose to chat with a fictional character….Yes, it would be none other than Archie. Archie Andrews from Archie’s comics remember ! I was just crazy about Archie’s comics. We had a whole bunch of them at home. I would totally get engrossed while reading them. It was as if I was a part of Riverdale where these teenagers hung around. The comics revolved around the lives of a cool group of teenagers. I liked Archie for his cool and easy going character. We would chat about the life in riverdale and his High school experiences in Riverdale High school. I would also ask him whom he actually liked. Veronica or betty ?
These are a few people with whom I would like to chat with in a chat room if given a chance. Whom would you chat with if given the opportunity ?
