    I am quite aware of the extent to which millions of people across the world are attached to Apple’s “i-gadget” family (almost like an adaptor, connector, or charger), and can therefore sense the depths of their shock and sense of disconnect at the tragic passing of the “i-guru” Steven Paul Jobs. In fact, many of them received the news of Steve’s death on one of his own inventions, which made their grief all the more poignant. Although I am an unrepentant and incorrigible “i-illiterate,” I found myself inescapably drawn to Steve, back in the late 1980s, when I saw the first Mac of my life at a DTP bureau in a city in southern India. Mac’s GUI, mouse, feather-touch keyboard (“Life is smoother since we can touch instead of push”], and several other snazzy features struck me like some strange magic, and I can recall times when Mac was the apple of the computer world’s eye, and its SA (Sex Appeal) and price-tag were so high that snobs would carry a Mac just to make a fashion statement. But, in my case, more than the machine itself, its maker mesmerized me, and Steve breaking conventions impressed me more than Steve making inventions. Steve’s traumatic early childhood experiences, particularly his unwed parents putting him up for adoption; his dropping out of college; his garage start-up; his conversion to Zen Buddhism (and consequent head-shaving); his counterculture experiments; his dismissal from his own Apple Inc.; his counter-challenge to cancer (the rebel’s own cells rebelled against him, and in the beginning, he shunned mainstream medicine) — there was nothing about him, in style as well as substance, that was not sensational. In my view, Steve was more an iConoclast than an iCon, and I loved seeing him defying tradition more than defining tastes & trends. To me, Steve was essentially a person of transterrestrial brilliance and a proto-specimen of a technological civilization to come.
    What “NeXT”? Maybe some insanely ingenious nerds will keep Steve-the-Geek’s inventive legacy alive, and present the world with i-peds, i-pids, i-puds, and other game-changing gizmos to carry users’ sensory experiences still deeper. But, I personally look forward to the advent of a “pan-creative” Steve-like genius who can present a cure for pancreatic and other pernicious cancers. Also, I anxiously anticipate the emergence a Pixar that can physically reanimate the likes of Steve Jobs!

    It is now time to wish “RIP” to Steve, but I refrain from doing so, because I know Steve is not the type to ever “rest in peace.” Indeed, he will already be trying to i-connect to his successors from his pad in “outer cyberspace,” and he will stay logged in to the memory systems of his countless fans and will continue to inspire them as long as history lasts.

    Live hungrily, foolishly – and dangerously,

    * It may be worth noting here that “Job” is the protagonist of an Old Testament parable of the righteous sufferer. Steven means “crown, garland and honour” in Greek, and St. Stephen is revered as the first martyr of the Christian Church.

    * Just like Randy Pausch delivering his famous “Last Lecture” at Carnegie Mellon, Steve Jobs presented an immortal Graduation Commencement Address at Stanford University in 2005. Some of the lines of this Address bear reproduction here: “… don’t waste it (your time) living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
