The advancement in the field of electronics has paved way for a better and smarter future, the world is just a touch away, everything is possible with the device in your pocket, but is there life in the world? Let’s see….
See the world beyond the 5 inch screen, there is a lot to it.
Our generation has seen the change the world has gone through. The transformation from analog to digital and we were greatly affected by the change, mostly in a good way. The transition from landline to cordless to Mobile to coloured phones to smart phones, and yes it is a fabulous change. Things have been easier than ever. I can sit at my home and book flights, buy stuff and what not. As far as utility is concerned, we’ve done a marvelous job. In return we tend to interact less with people, no negotations, just promo codes and cash backs. What about interpersonal relationships?
When it comes on the personal front, the advent of social media has been overwhelming. I seriously believe that it has done more harm than good. Whatever form it might be in, it has lured people like droseraceae. No doubt, it has helped with campaigns and propaganda, but what it has done eventually, is that people now post things to get acceptance. The idea has infiltrated in their minds so deep that now we’re on a social network to gain acceptance, rather than to connect. This idea has obviated the true purpose of social networking.
When it comes to the newer generation, our kids, they are most unfortunate. They will never know the happiness of rolling in mud, playing marbles, all they will know is to play on the phone, watch videos. They will use smart phones smartly, but will get dummer. There’ll be a time when they will chat with you, but they won’t have the time to talk to you.
In conclusion, digitization has made life easy, relations tough, connected the world, disconnected people. I will not blame technology for this, I blame myself, I blame myself for this unpleasant condition of the next generation. I have brought this upon them and myself.
Use technology as a tool not like a crutch, there will be life in your life.
