Ohh dear...

The question is not how I lost it. Nor it is where did I lose it. Its a fact that I lost it with my utter carelessness. Its unfortunate that I lost my cell [Nokia 7610] which was of worth Rs. 12800/- when I bought it 2 yrs back. Im not the kinda of guy who throws around his cell and searches for it all the time, nor Im of the kinds who throws away his cell to vent his anger. I had hardly dropped it 5-6 times (!!!!!!) in past 2 years, had hardly a scratch on the screen. That must have given you an idea of how much I used to love my cell. Now its in the hands of some unknown, lucky, dishonest bastard.

To give you some more glimpses of my love story with my cell, that was THE BEST high end cell phone that matched my requirements for the best price. It had a large screen, bluetooth, 1 MP camera, 32 MB phone memory and 64 MB MMC. More over I can claim 7610 was the best look- wise also. Some of the new phones are loaded with features but can never come closer to the design of 7610. U can imagine a sense of achievement I had felt buying it in my own hard earned money 2 yrs back.

I had utilized the phone to the extent that I could call I almost exploited the phone. I had un/installed myriad of games/applications/utilities, It was a handy camera tempting me to click each and every thing I came across [statistics say i had clicked nearly 1500 pics using it, not to forget I even had won a photography contest]. It was a personal diary, it was a database of quotations, it was a personal expense manager, rarely used for surfing the net also... it was basically everything for me. Now its all like a sweet dream. Its all gone. I have lost a dear of mine.

Have to add the story of me going to the police station to register the complaint about the loss of cell phone. I entered the police station and went to SI sitting there jobless, 'My cell phone got lost and I wanna register a complaint'. SI asked me, 'u wanna give the complaint as...?'. I repeated politely, 'my cell phone got lost'. SI corrected me, 'cell phone got lost or you lost it?!?!'. Ohh MG! I got irritated for SI letting me know the 'accountability' factor of losing my cell. NO.. actually he was right in saying it. It is right to say, 'I lost it'. If any one has to be blamed it is only me.

After registering the complaint, I casually asked the SI, 'cell phone sigo chances eshTu Sir?'. He reluctantly said, '1000s of people keep losing mobile sir..' and grinned. I said, 'isnt it possible to track using IMEI number?'. I found him perplexed digesting the concept of there is some thing called IMEI for a cell phone, using which one can track where the lost cell phone is and take appropriate action. Psssttt... Such is our police dept..

Currently using my cousin's old cell phone. Guess the model.... it is Nokia 3315 :-/ The once famous, now primitive Nokia model. Im not gonna buy a new cell for next few weeks, umm months may be. I wanna punish my self using Nokia 3315. Every time it rings err better to say beeps, it should remind me that Im the whole and sole responsible person for losing my dearest 7610.

"Things are there to be used, people are there to be loved. But unfortunately we love things and use people" :-/

Sorry to hear that you dont have your 7610. I can understand. BTW did you lose it or someone robbed it from you?

Lesson Learnt : Better be careful.

Dude don't punish yourself for losing something, move on.. Dont repeat it.


The cell must have fallen off from my pocket man.. not sure still a mystery to me also.

Yeah.. I need to be extra crfl

Have been using 3315 frm past few days. Its a real TORTURE to use a basic primitive model after using a smart phone man.. Need to buy one after serving the terms of punishment :)

Dude... using a 3315 is not that much of a torture.. Lemme tell you that you've got one of the best models of cell phones ever and u'll realise this only and only if you use ur cell phone as a cellphone and not as a camera / radio / some thing else!

Anyways, life keeps throwing up these kind of small reminders that we are not error-free.......

Hmmmm.... reminds me of the time when i had lost mine in a similar way... and i too used a primitive model for a couple of months!!http://maanasalahari.rediffblogs.com/2006_26_02_maanasalahari_archive.html
I know how bad it feels.... as cellphones are like a part of us now....
BTW, the last line(quote) in the post is a good one...

[to Suksy]:
I have been used to the buffet of 3 star hotel maga, n all of a sudden Im given to eat chitranna of peTTi angaDi. Of course both quench the hunger.. but still...

[to Sum]:

"Things you love, you will lose them one day. Things you fear you will face it someday"

[To Jagadish]:
"Things you love, you will lose them one day. Things you fear you will face it someday"
