Outsourcing is the Word

Everything we ever want is available to us just at a click of a button, well almost everything. The things that cannot be achieved directly by technology can be outsourced for a price tag.

Everything we ever want is available to us just at a click of a button, well almost everything. The things that cannot be achieved directly by technology can be outsourced for a price tag. So we have people taking care of our daily chores. Then there are people answering attendance, writing examinations, waiting in queues for those  who want their services. We have stories of senior sweepers, sorry Pourakarmikas who kindly allow their poorer cousins to do the job for them for a pittance. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, builders and other professionals off shoulder their responsibilities to their juniors in the name of teaching them the tricks of the trade. Then there are always those one or two people in every family who are specially identified to attend some function or the other on behalf of them. There are goons who can bump off the guy you don’t like .If you have not yet grasped the general drift of all this dribbling, let me spell it out for you. The mantra goes this way: Every activity that can be done by a substitute is almost always outsorced.

That explains all the lifestyle diseases. Apparently all of it stems from our couch potato mode, preferably with a bag of potato chips by our side. If only we could squarely shift the blame on all those innovations and the underprivileged populace. They who have geared up to enslave us  make us obese and redundant need to be punished  for making us look  silly slobs. When this kind of collective murmur became a clamor it was heard by the world of technology. Lo and behold, they came up with an application called Pokemon Go. The tech savvy and the body watchers geared up to catch virtual monsters and burn those unwanted calories. Just around the time when the world thought things were falling into place a news brief updated us about how lazy gamers can avail the services of firm called Poke walk. The ones who want to boast of a high score without sweating it out can hire the service of people who will walk their phone and catch creatures for a fee! Wonder what they will come up with next?

I am waiting for the day when the brilliant brains of this world will come up with a technology for satiating our senses or even breathing on behalf of us. However I will not be overly surprised if some enterprising lot gives us the option to outsource the function for a fee!
