Old traditions in new avataars

I remember those days when i was a kid, when neighbors used to share sweets on occasions..... Usually some home made delicacies, that they send in some plates (wrapped in newspapers sometimes) or tiffin boxes........ Then there is this custom that u shouldnt return the vessel empty. So you fill it with some goodies from your side, while u return it......

Well, some of the aunties of the house still follow these, but wat im talking about is the gen-Y of today who follow this tradition in a different way. Somebody asks u some stuff on ur comp (music, pictures, software etc.). U give it to him in ur USB pendrive...... He returns u the pendrive with some goodies he has (more music, movies etc.).....

Well, i think both the old and new traditions are applicable only to places like india :)

And some ppl forget to return the pen drives until reminded (just like some neighbors accidentally forget all abt ur vessel, and is mixed up with their own vessels)
