W for WiFi

We are with the 2018 April AtoZ Blogging challenge and its my fifth attempt. For those who missed it, here is the link to my Theme Reveal post. Do the alphabets still stand for the same things we learnt about in Nursery school? 

Its day twenty three and the alphabet is W. 

WiFi is the first word that comes to my mind for this alphabet. Ofcourse water still is an important letter-word association but my choice for today’s post is WiFi.

A receptionist at a hotel in Norway told me, “We get tourists from all parts of the world. Many dont speak or understand English. Yet everyone knows one word…. WiFi!!”

That in itself shows the reach of this technology. Its the gateway to the Internet, the place where one gets information, entertainment, education and almost everything else. We extensively use WiFi. At home. In office. At airports. In hotels. Going beyond the usual ones (phone, tablets, computer, laptop) the range of WiFi connected devices at home is rising rapidly.. Fitbit, Air purifiers, refrigerators, weighing scales and who can forget the latest addition – Alexa! 


Whenever we have house guests, among the first things to be offered to them is the WiFi password!! 

Here is an image received on WhatsApp that shows the scene when the family gets together with the family matriarch…

I am all for connectivity but I do feel its taking over our lives. We are turning into zombies as we move from screen to screen. People are immersed in their own world and I find many are unable to converse in person. Chatting via a website or App is what gets them vocal.

As someone said, the best way to get a family together is to turn off the WiFi.

Lets get together, talk, laugh, explore the great outdoors and reconnect!

We are at the fag end of the challenge. Only three alphabets to go.

  1. You're right, water is more essential than WiFi, but you would still find many that would choose the tech anyway!
