Q. A significant part of your life has been pre-Google. How did you live life then? As in how did you get information on stuff then? Are you better off now than you were then. For, you earned most of your stripes pre-Google.

 

A. Pre-Google or post-Google has one common element: people are still thronging temples. So even Google can’t answer all questions. That’s why temple visits haven’t come down. But jokes apart, there is no denying the fact that Google has made life easier to navigate, literally and metaphorically. Search was effort-intensive in pre-Google days. Now it seems to be easier. But other challenges have cropped up. So a pre- and post-Google comparison of life won’t be an a fair exercise. Each period has its pros and cons. If I start to narrate that now it would be like a tale of two cities, oops, two periods.
