Technology hits social gatherings


Let this blog post highlights on technolgocial scenario.

You feel hungry, your stomach desires for a continental or Italian cuisine and there you stop by at the best restaurant of the town. The engaging and fascinating environment totally captures your attention and this is quite decent to one’s eyes. But there is something having one’s attention drawn away from this pleasing atmosphere of a restaurant. Wanna make guess ?

Technology! This is the blissful interference in today’s social gatherings. I know, it is hard to accuse wonderful innovations, responsible for superfluous interruptions, but enormous uses of devices create diverse distractions. When we go through such situations, level of tolerance is highly tested!

Whether you consider a meeting, a fine dinner, lunch, conferences or a family time, technology is leading everywhere. I also name it as “disturbing technology”. The integration of disturbance technological devices has badly affected our social communications. A teenager is more attracted toward a handy and interesting gadget than a friend or a member of his family. You can simply relate with the excessive use of smartphones, laptops, Ipad, notebooks or kindle. We have successfully entered in a fast-paced lifestyle where individuals should keep a distance with technology, at least on gatherings. I deeply think that technology ruins the pleasing environment of people interactions, which is quite disturbing.  The way we communicate or interact is also greatly changed with the introduction of technological improvements. It can be a good advantage but there is always a darker side to everything. We must not forget that!

Though technology is monitoring our lives and it is almost impossible to maintain a distance with it. Staying positive is never a crime, so I believe one should stick with it till the best happens. How can I blame it further as it is the only way through I am communicating with you guys also 😛

If there would be no internet?


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.
