Paay Laagu "Google Devta" Ke.....

I was in the middle of a romantic holiday with Ranbir Kapoor on a Gondola in Venice; when I was jolted back to my room in Mumbai by a phone call from a friend asking me if I had completed my project. “The effect of Sodium mono glutamate on the breeding pattern of Drosophila melanogastor”-20 pages!! Ranboo had just gone down on his knees, when I realized that I was in trouble… knee deep trouble! Less than 6 hours to complete a 20 page project!! Only Google could’ve saved my ass!! I planted myself before my PC, keyed in the topic on the Google toolbar and prayed to Lord Google to come down from Silicon Valley and help me! By the 7th page of the results thrown up, I got precisely what I was looking for and my 20-pager was done in 3 hours…I even got to spend the other 3 hours to dream about Ranboo and me in the Gondola!!

Call me a lazy bum or a parasite on Google, but I refuse to sit amidst a pile of Genetics tomes for days trying to find more about Drosophila’s sex life when one can have the same result in a matter of minutes. Talk about being technically civilized!! Google’s contribution to the student kind is stuff that the years to come will talk about. I don’t see half the number of projects/ assignments/ submissions etc taking place if not for Google! Students today can do without sleeping in lectures but making projects without Google is like asking Rakhi Sawant to do a stage show in a burqa!

What began as a college project between 2 Stanford students went on to revolutionize the way the future would study. Trust me, I’m still trying to figure out how Larry Page and Sergey Brin (Who?? Google ‘em!!) managed a ‘project’ without the blessings of Lord Google!! They completely changed the way internet was and would be used.

Anything that you want, Google gives it to you in a click. Be it the name of Laloo Prasad Yadav’s sixth kid or the capital of Xanadu…. Every need of homo sapiens is taken care by Google Devta! Not only on the professional level, but also on the personal level. Remember Googling out every small detail about the new cute actor coming up…. From his date of birth to the marks scored in his Std III Grammar test?? There are days, though when Google does have its Bad Google Days… days when it throws up all possible irrelevant results and you are left without your last resort! But then we can blame our destiny for that!


For the sheer amount of selfless service from Google on which the entire student community is luxuriously growing, I think, we should make a temple in the name of the Computer God…. Just as a Thank You gesture and a request to continue doing so even for our great grand kids!! So everyone, “Zor se bolo: Paay Laagu Google Devta ke”!!!
