Is the world we live in, really small?We have often heard in movies or from strangers when we strike up a conversation and discover that we share some staggering connections. The person may be from our neighboring area/locality, a long relative, have studied in the same school/college or we have spoken with each other earlier. On discovering this, we utter the same famous movie dialogue, " Duniya gol ke sath choti bhi hai" which means " the world is not only round but even small."
If we love traveling or even have traveled on a long route, such incidents are bound to happen or even for people who shift their locations for work, education, etc that we meet many people whom we knew but were not in touch. When we get to know of the connections, we feel relieved as we get time to know them better and even a sigh of relief as someone is there to interact.
This can also be related to a new technology called the internet. With smartphones in every hand and internet in it has made the world so small that you get every information about any corner of the world on your fingertip.
What do our members and readers feel? Is the world really small or is the technology making it smaller? Have you ever come across strangers whom you share some unusual connections? Do give your inputs as your comments for others to know.
