An illusion of a connected world

Living in a world where the internet is growing at a rate of millions of words a minute and information on any subject or topic is simply available at a click of a button, the internet is simply a new way of life.
Websites like thekhanacademy.com and some authentic channels on youtube are rich source of education to the younger generation.

In countries where people cannot afford good education the internet is a dream where the capitalists exploit the scarcity of this cheap resource for economical gains in the same way educational institutions turn into money making machines.
Let us be practical. The government of India for example is keen into creating eCities where everything has a huge price-tag attached to it. In the gulf the internet is much more costlier. In Pakistan the internet has high value because money has no value. Caps on bandwidths and speed limits are sometimes used to manipulate the market into churning the pockets of end users in these countries. Ban on portals and websites a very common practice by the regulatory bodies of the governments keen in growing their so called eCities. While there are people around the world that simply squat their time, money and efforts to educate people.
The illusion of a connected world is what we live in. This world eats up a chuck of our hard earned pennies with each chance of bite it gets.
