I was just sitting on a lounge sofa with a cup of tea in hand, thinking how my life would be without internet?
To start with, I really can’t think about it! I mean SERIOUSLY, NO INTERNET!
The life would definitely be unpredictable and of course boring. Still at the time I was thinking, my cell phone was in my hand and laptop was kept on the table on the other side of sofa. That means our lives are 24-hour connected via internet with people living in different countries around the world. Well, there are people who have grown up without dependence on internet and live a happy, satisfying life without disturbance of face book notifications, red light alarming low battery and overloaded inbox of emails. As I talk about the interruptions from facebook,I have to remind you candy crush notifications. LOL!
Importantly, I would miss GOOGLE for sure, as it is an instant help to all of us and an important source of information just at a distance of one click. There would be no facebook, twitter, instagram notifications which pop up at my phone screen. Oh I will be without my android too. No no NO! And Iphone users, without their Iphone! The time would be without handy technologies too.
There would be no blog with my name, no followers to interact and no forum for sharing my talks with my readers. My thoughts would have been buried somewhere, my stories be faded away and my approach to meet new friends from all over the world would have been flown away. There would be no excitement for uploading a post, and to see how many likes you get. How can I forget to write about facebook and watsapp profile pictures? Profile pictures and selfie craziness will be nowhere. There would be no SNAPCHAT stories of our favorites, we would have been only dreaming to gather any latest news from television or newspapers about lifestyles of celebs. The television will expand its inventive significance and books will be regaining their readers in libraries.
Turning to the other side, we will be having more face to face interactions; there will be no distractions in family dinners/lunch. My mom won’t be complaining about excessive use of smart phone. The absence of internet will ultimately urge to value the presence of books, magazine and other printed versions. Children will be spending more time on physical activities and gaming other than social media, ipad and other handy technologies. Friends will prefer gathering rather than a chat on watsapp group. We will arrange gatherings to look at photo albums, to share moments and enjoy conversations instead of getting likes, comments on facebook and other social sites.
It was just a plain imagination of my mind, although internet is now a basic connectivity of our daily lives.
