Ever wondered how you would survive if you were stranded in the middle of no where in some remote island? Ofcourse when the only traveling you do is from home to office and back, theres very little chance you'd get stranded in an island but when you watch LOST the thought does occur to you. Tom hanks managed to survive for four years (Cast Away), Anthony Hopkins was the only one who came out alive (The Edge). How long would you survive? More importantly if there were a bunch of you and you started a civilization, what would your contribution be? In Lost, theres just the right combination of people. You know theres exactly one engineer, one doctor and one pretty girl for the pretty doctor. What if that plane was carrying a bunch of doctors to, say some doctors convention in Australia?The show would then be called ER. haha. Anyway coming to Lost again, everybody is skilled, the best in the field.There is Jack:Surgeon, Super Hero, Saviour, Mr. Know it all..ok forget Jack, hes the result of an over imaginative script writer. But take Syed, soldier in Iraqi army and communication engineer. He is good at fixing stuff, he can even build radio transmitters out of airplane junk. That’s something. Lock, hes amazing with knives, can hunt, hes the food provider and hes got this 6th sense that will never get lost no matter how dense the forest is. (Again overactive imagination? ). Then theres the pretty girl, whats-her-name? She is umm, I am sure she is good at something. The Korean lady can practice Chinese medicine so that helps in the rare case that Superhero Jack fails. The fat guy built a golf course, some other guy can play the guitar. See? Everyone is good at something. What help would I be of? My education is no good, simply because I haven't learnt anything. Had I paid attention to my communication classes I am sure could have built those fancy gizmos Syed builds. Besides what good am I without a comp and internet connection? Damn, this is depressing. And I thought watching LOST would be a good change from watching Desperate housewives. At least the ladies at wisteria lane do not give me a complex.

Nice thought !!

LOL,we all could actually be of help to the team. We could be the funny people who keep them entertained. We know a million pieces of sms & internet humour and the most entertaining part would be our stories of how we induced and fought bugs in our code.

We'd be the most important part in the group i'm sure.


P.S.: Oops, forgot to mention that our invaluable quality of patience would be helpful if one of jack's instruments fail. we would be the ones who would restart it a million times without getting frustrated !!

After reading your post,I was thinking of a story plot based on what you have written, A plane carrying politicians (taking a vacation on taxpayers money) crashed and all the politicians stranded in a island.

One mother of india, another character son of india, one puppet, one hardliner, one left who is never right, one kumari who wants to bring Tal mahal to island, one defence minister who sells country and so on...
Think of the immense potential of this plots Characterization.

What a plot for a nice comedy ...This series can run longer then our Sas-Bahu saga.

Did you said 'over-active imagination' I agree with you. LOL
