We are now in the midst of the internet revolutionThe horrible virus has forced people to stay at home and work. Most employees are not so happy but do not have much of a choice. Petrol expenses are down, the roads are less crowded, and reportedly in most metro cities, there are too many houses available for rent, as families seem to have innovated in terms of a drastic reduction in costs. They have moved lock, stock and barrel to their native places and are happy to work from there.
This brings us to a vital question. Those working from Tirunelveli or a neighboring village, or as a couple of young guys known to me are now doing, from a village just six kilometers from Nellore, (according to them, I do not know the location at all), or someone from a village 26 kilometers from Tiruchirapalli on the Trichy to Karur route, ( a guy whom I guided for an IT career some eight years ago), unless the internet facilities have improved, one cannot just work from such places. In the last-mentioned case, it was a friend, now based in the USA, who wanted this guy to stay in that house, free of cost, just to safeguard the village house, as his parents are away with another son in Mumbai!!!
The realities of life are simply amazing. So, somehow or the other, the internet revolution is real. What shape it will take in the next 24 months is unknown. However, we are sure that the internet revolution is on its way to becoming a big source of livelihood for millions of people.
