MWMs – A Dying Breed
I belong to a dying breed – within a few years, there will be none of us left. We are being killed systematically by the onslaught of technology. Yes, I am one of the few remaining MWM – a Malayalie Without a Mobile.
All my friends have deserted to the other side. Even my family is moving away. The world around me is falling into this trap – here is a graph that shows the demise of our civilization…
Just decades ago, the MWM(Malayalies Without Moblies) was at 100% – now it is at 2%-3% range. And most people in this range are babies. And they belong in this range only for a short time – from the point of birth to the point when the father hands him a cell. So, most people belong to this range for about 4 seconds.
So why not buy a mobile? Because mobiles are about connectivity – and I am not. Having a mobile chains me to any idiot who have access to a phone. Why would anyone want that? Now, if only I could take a hammer to my land phone. My family would be suspicious – so I will have to make it look like an accident. Or a suicide.
In spite of my wishes I have been exposed to over 200 hours of deadly advertisements about mobiles. Usually after this kind of exposure, the human brain shuts down – and that often results in people buying mobile phones. I am still an owner of a functioning brain(I think – therefore, I think I am) – but I don’t know how long I can hold out.
I have no illusions about my fate. Before long, I will be one of them. I will be a brainless zombie who carries his remaining brain cells in a cell phone. My only hope is that the internal strifes within the Mobile community divides them before they take over the world. Even now there is a class struggle within the Mobile owning community – two new classes have been formed. Now there is a new endangered class – Malayalies with just one mobile.
