Story Idea - The Great Tech Meltdown

Hook: In one deadly alien invasion, all technology in the world melts down irretrievably.

Story: The world is happily plugged in, connected, linkedin and all that sort of words. Everything is driven by technology - so much so that people cannot go from A to B without technology, cannot identify their spouses without technology and so on and so forth. And then when it is all at its peak, the aliens strike. Technology freezes. Melts. And is gone. Becomes dust.

People are totally helpless. How now? How to go anywhere? Who to call? Who to sms? Who to google? What to hold? The cities have gone nuts with people on the verge of a breakdown as they are unable to cope without technology.

Enter hero from village. No technology for this fellow. Only common sense and use of five other senses. He is doing perfectly fine. All the tech-starved chaps realise that they have lost the power of the five senses and the biggest one - common sense. Village bumpkin becomes a messiah. The hero who has to deliver them. How does he do that? How does he get their senses activated? Watch the latest blockbuster to find out!

Raja, I have to now figure out how to make the mobile or ipad do a sleazy dance, tell some rotten jokes and beat up a hundred chaps to make it a super duper hit.
