E- going Electronic

E-mail, E-payments, E-Commerce and more - our lives revolve around these nowadays.

I still remember the day my friend told me about Electronic mail, and how sceptical I was to accept its utility. Nevertheless, she dragged me to a cyber café, which was rare those days, and made me create my very first e-mail account.

The Indian Government is also oriented towards making transactions digital, which has had a very strong impact on my life.


Today I seek for electronic options for everything I do – be it paying bills, shopping, booking tickets, hiring cabs and more. It saves so much of my time and allows me the flexibility of multi-tasking – I can take care of many responsibilities through few clicks. If I have to make a payment, however small, I’ll go for the electronic option if available, use my credit card or e-wallet.

The very mention of credit cards makes me realize that making payments has undergone a paradigm shift in my life. The use of credit cards, online transfers, apps and likewise rule the way I choose to complete my transactions.

Also, my work profile also essentially revolves around e-mails and meetings over video conferencing.

I have gone very electronic. Have you?

I'm just like you. Most of what I do is electronic. I hesitated for a long time. Why I'm not sure, but I did. At least with some things. Now, almost everything I do is electronic. My husband, well, he's still holding out on paying some of his bills online. :)

Pretty much everything in my life in electronic. Even 75% of my work happens from my mobile!

Most of what I do is electronic as well.. My only worry is if we have a serious power outage like back in 2003!

yep, I've gone completely 'electronic' or as most people say, 'digital' which I think the term is used more often, at least to me.

I remember I got a snail mail for a bill, it says I can pay online but then it also said, I have to return a signed slip which means I can pay the bill online but still have to mail in the little slip by mail which totally defeats the purpose of paying the bill online. so I guess the lesson is, it's impossible to be completely digital.

have a lovely day.
