What is there in a name?

Digvijaya Singh, Congress General Secretary and a Rajya Sabha M.P. called names to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the extent that he was a megalomaniac and that he was the one who didn’t follow the constitutional etiquette by addressing American President Barack Obama by his first name Barack in contrast to how the American President addressed Mody as Mr.Prime Minister during his recent visit to India. There could be some point in what Digvijaya Singh said but, if viewed impartially, it sounds like much ado about nothing. Prime Minister Modi did address the President of America by his first name Barack but it was simply to indicate that they are good friends, a factor to establish healthy relationship between the two countries. There are certain political groups who criticise Modi for serving tea to the American President like a tea boy forgetting that it was just an etiquette when two dignitaries meet and here it was Modi who took the lead. This should not always be necessary for the opposition to do some digging or the other finding fault at the other end just for the sake of opposing. Personal relations matter much when two heads of State from different countries meet to bilaterally discuss the issues relating to their countries.


Communication with invisibles:

All channels of social media are centred around those who remain invisible round the clock and so is blogging where conversation between the blogger and the readers is always limited to a form beyond any physical access between one another without any face to face contact. This is a peculiar relationship in the sense that every communicational transaction takes place online without the parties concerned physically knowing each other. Silence is gold, it is said, as against speech known as silver but the very silence factor referred to in the adage invariably doesn’t rule out physical presence of the partners concerned which element remains crippled totally in online talks or communications. A blogger too has normally to deal with the people other side as as invisible an entity as the reader himself/ herself with both the sides physically remaining poles apart with each other. No go as this is how the online world is built up. People use skype as a weapon to remedy the distance between the blogger and the reader but that factually acts as an exchange of merely pictures only and that doesn’t form a replacement to real physical contact between the talkers. Bloggers and readers both have to feel contented by typing words  as an exchange of their expressions online only and there lies their limit.
