Is it a tablet?

Have a tablet.

But I do not need one.

What everyone is aiming for a tablet.

But not me. I am fine.

Everyone else is fine too but wants a tablet.

Maybe they need it but I am fine.

You will be great, brilliant if you have a tablet.

But I am already great.

The world will be at your feet.

It already is.

Reading will become an extra special experience.

But it already is. How will taking a tablet change it?

You will have thousands of books with a click.

But tablet and thousands of books – what is the relationship?

Alright friend, forget books just have a tablet for a change.

But I am fine without a change.

Ok have tablet to have a painless experience of getting a hand on to better cooking tips. Your husband will love you for it!

My husband already loves me. Cooking is not that much of a painful experience that I have to take a tablet.

Ok friend, you want your children to grow up as better human beings.

Yes of course.

You want to know how to do it painlessly.


Take a tablet, it will open your mind to a whole new world of ideas on child upbringing that produces future Steve Jobs!

My mind is already opened, do not need a tablet.

My friend, you are proving to be a hard nut to crack today.

Dear friend, you are not being your normal rational self today.

I am your well-wisher.

A well-wisher does not force a tablet when it is not needed.

I have been worried for your health.

My health!

You miss not being in touch with people as much as you used to be when you worked.

Yes but how can a tablet help.

With a tablet you can be in touch with millions of people around the world, you can write, inspire, excite just like you did in your previous job.

Will a tablet help me do so?

Yes definitely my dearest friend!

Which one?

Your choice! You have to pay for it.

My choice- money that should not be an issue, pain killers are cheap.

Pain killers!

You said I need a tablet.

But I did not say a pain killer!

So what is it then – some new tablet? Tell me please!

Tablet….I mean Samsung Tablet or an I Pad!

What….is I Pad a tablet?

Yes it is.

Since when for I have one and it does not ease my pain as well as Rs. 5 Ponstan does.
