It wasn’t so long ago, that if for some arcane reason I wanted to know the temperature in Mumbai, as a kid I’d have had to hope onto my trusty, rusty blue bike, pedal up the hill & around several corners to arrive at the local library. Pulling open the heavy door, I’d have had to walk into the slightly musty smelling, crowded room & hope the librarian was in a good mood to help me.
It took me 58 seconds. Which might seem long. (It’s because the weather app on my IOS7 updated IPhone actually has rain, clouds & more moving across the screen according to each city I’m looking at & I was a little mesmerized by that.)
Knowledge. Information. And ideally, by extension, learning, is merely a few fingers swipes away for many of us.
I dunno about you but that’s the equivalent to a big batch of cookie dough.
Sweet, too much to take in at one sitting & something to savour long after you’ve imbibed.
By the way, it’s 30.
Degrees celsius that is.
