Looking at the title of this post one must have felt that I am either mocking someone or taking out my frustration or anger. Sigh!
I was having this conversation sometime back with a friend of mine who was continuously looking either at his phone rather I should say smart phone or looking at that idiot box which has actually nothing good to offer and when the attention was not given I was obviously distressed. I sometimes wonder how these small things have replaced human relations. The things of ease have become things of distress. Anyway, when I revolted that I was not given any attention for my conversation - there was a very simple yet powerful statement coming from this friend of mine which actually disturbed me so much that I had to vent my anger by writing this post. He said ," My phone has more features than you and why should I even listen to you." I was a little stunned/depressed listening to this statement. After some time when things came back to normal - I actually thought/analysed this statement in depth. What was it that I felt bad about - was it the statement which I never expected from that dear friend of mine or was it the truth behind the statement.
I am sure we all would relate to this kind of situation. We all do the same things - look at our smart phones, sit at home-watch a screen, browse through social media sites - missing every day opportunities.
The present day life has become so hectic that we don't see the chances we miss. We are so busy that we don't even realize that we have limited, finite number of days of our existence. I am sure no one among us would want to get caught up in useless things because when the end comes, nothing is worse than regret.
The more we connect with our phones and gadgets, the more isolated we are making ourselves, making conversations and face to face interactions practically isolate. Put down the phone, walk away from the screen. You don't know the moments you are missing right now.
