At The Party

Few days back I was at this party with friends. We were having a good time till they decided to drink and dance. I, being myself, chose to enjoy the sight from a distance. A nearby table, where each of us had kept our mobile phones and wallets, caught my attention. Soon, I found myself arranging the mobile phones randomly. Then I noticed a pattern. Here’s what the arrangement was like:


Micromax Q50

Dell XCD28

Blackberry Pearl

HTC Desire

Apple iPhone

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro

Samsung Galaxy pop

Samsung Guru Dual


The sequence was an amusing one because it occurred to me the list was tantamount to man’s evolution through time. A journey from simplicity to simplicity via complexity.

A pattern everyone follows but fails to recoginze. I realized i'm using an Apple i phone (hypothetically) probably. Thnx for making me realise. Will try 2 get 2 samusung guru as early as possible..

guess throughout life's pre-mapped complexity,as we continue living,we try to design customised solutions in order to seek and achieve the ultimate simplicity...and this voyage never ends!!

Who would have thought some one could summarize the whole existent and evolution of humans using some phones! Great! Hats off to your thoughts and imagination! :)

PS: People should be careful before handling you anything, for you might squeeze out some dangerous philosophies using them :P
