Dangers of Short Messaging Service (SMS)

Here is a series of SMS exchanged between Rekha and me in January, 2004 – way before we got married. I have tried to give you the date and time for easy comprehension.

Jan 3, 6.30 p.m. – Rajan: I am going to Bangalore tonight

Jan 3, 6.33 p.m. – Rekha: Why?

Jan 3, 6.35 p.m. – Rajan: I need to be there for something important

Jan 3, 6.37 p.m. – Rekha: Official?

Jan 3, 6.38 p.m. – Rajan: No…family stuff.

Jan 3, 6.44 p.m. – Rekha: What family stuff? Why didn`t you tell me earlier?

Jan 3, 6.49 p.m. – Rajan: Was a sudden decision. There is Puja in Bangalore

Jan 3, 7.01 p.m. – Rekha: What is this Puja about?

Jan 3, 7.09 p.m. – Rajan: Can`t talk about Puja. I am not supposed to. Might not work out.

Jan 3, 7.29 p.m. – Rekha: OK fine. Go ahead. Happy Journey.


Jan 4, 4.30 p.m. – Rekha: Why are you not calling me?

Jan 4, 4.45 p.m. – Rajan: Been busy. Had to buy stuff for Puja

Jan 4, 4.46 p.m. – Rekha: What stuff?

Jan 4, 4.56 p.m. – Rajan: All kinds of trinklets. Costly stuff.

Jan 4, 4.58 p.m. – Rekha: Can I call you? Feel like talking

Jan 4, 5.10 p.m. – Rajan: Can`t talk now. Am waiting for Puja to begin

Jan 4, 5.13 p.m. – Rekha: Will you call me afterwards?

Jan 4, 5.30 p.m. – Rajan: Will do love


Jan 4, 9.30 p.m. – Rajan: Puja is done with me. Can I call?

The message I sent at 9.30 p.m. on January 4 – soon after I dropped Puja at her place – was my undoing.
