However, the geek culture in India is picking up, but at slow pace. Some geek bloggers celebrate the day by visiting the Geek Pride Day website to post their comments and good wishes.
To a common man likens a geek to funny person or socially inept person doing something uncanny in a crazy way. Some others find a geek an interesting person with extreme devotion to a particular interest. Sometimes, respect is shown to such crazy people by calling them ‘nerds’. According to a blogger, Nani Manna, perhaps it is because of the geeks, we have reached where we are today since their contribution to the civilization is unique and unparallel. While wishing Happy Geek Pride Day, he heralds "Long live geeks!".
I call upon geeks that if they were technology addicts, they needed to throw off the shackles of scorn and celebrate their great Geekiness on May 25. It often said that for a geek, the glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it’s twice as big as it needs to be. Those who praise geeks as unique people says that geeks’ strength is in their brains. In technological world, a geek is a new cool.
geek, as a slang word, was used to describe eccentricity and
craziness for a useless pursuit. However, looking at the contribution
of geeks to technological advancement and design processes, now they
are called with pride 'nerds" or "geek chics" to
recognize their socially acceptable role in a technologically
advanced society of today. Though a geek may be socially inept, but
he or is greatly intelligent and highly obsessed to do things for
their own sake.
