Video Streaming

My internet connection boasts of a good speed. Okay, usually it’s better than good. And a video in any streaming website loads quickly.

But last night for some reason (unknown to me) the internet speed was like that of man’s evolution through time. I was dead bored. It was only an hour later the video I was so desperate to see had fully loaded. One hour compared to the normal half a minute! I was irritated because I had to watch few more parts of the same video. Talk about long nights!


And in the humdrum of a slow internet connection I realized: I’d actually waited for all the videos to load because I wanted to see them. If the Wait had not happened, the Want would have been a traveller in the land of excuses.

Is it necessary to wait 4 everything to attain more pleasure or striving hard to get it gives the satisfaction????

Ri said...

Not exactly a brilliant post, to be honest! Sorry about that :P

But the last line was the beauty, "If the Wait had not happened, the Want would have been a traveller in the land of excuses." and it made me wonder, forced me to rethink and finally drove me to a conclusion, some people have the ability to think everything, but only a few can describe those things as beautifully as you :)

Hey Lebnox, thanks !! And you don't have to be sorry if you don't like something just like I don't have to be 'brilliant' every time my fingers hit the keyboard :P

You waited for that video(a little longer than usual) to buffer as you badly wanted to see it. *And the wait was worth it*. Similarly, I wait for your blog posts for long. :)

""If the Wait had not happened, the Want would have been a traveller in the land of excuses.""

For some, the Land of Excuses doesn't have any Other side!

It reminds me of this poem of yours - which I really love Novoneel ..!!

"Naye-purane zakhmon ko sametkar,
Lamhon ke khirki-darwaze band kar,
Jana Hai.

Dard kai hai, Dil wahi
Mijaz kayi hai, Mausam wahi
Bahane kayi hai, khichav wahi." GBU!
