What Technology has Robbed

For those who have lived through that era- of the 70s, 80s and mid- 90s; when technology had not taken really deep roots into society, times when life within people was so innocent, the real feel of live social interaction; this was when a face to face conversation was more valuable that through this whole session a lot would be achieved.
Gone are the days when we used to have that sweet conversation as we rode in busses, trains, taxis or in cues while in banks or hospitals; quite jolly and memorable they would turn out to be- so we can only save those for occasional events, a few schools and funerals, maybe. All these were replaced by modern Technology- the gadgets. Have you noticed for a moment what goes on event social gatherings?; all eyes and finger tips will be focused on a phone, an I-pad or a Tablet- the gadget I meant!
Thanks to the new Tech, helps us avoid bumping into people we don’t desire, lie about our location, save us from the boring people we are surrounded with and raising addiction for using our gadgets. Amazing how one can easily forget, their transport fare- accidentally of course, wallet or important documents at home, but never their smart phone.
We are increasingly introduced to new tech, using it, appreciating it even before knowing what it really is!
It’s those heart-felt emotions of reality that have been robbed off from us, leaving cyber expressions as a substitute. Can you really feel one’s mood; their joy, sorrow, pain, reaction… through a text! We no longer are closer, socializing, sharing than it feels yet we have to move on; yes, its development and new experience it brings, faded moments it leaves. It’s an advancement that all ages are deeply sinking into, with praises; guess we really get to take a further step in its reality. Gone with olden moments.

  2. Yes Andey, modern Tech has indeed robbed us of the real feel of one-on-one social interactions, but yet again it has simplified life and thus advanced way of living. I can no longer worry about the loneliness brought by that mandatory assignment overseas, for example, when I am certainly certain that my family is just accessible by a single click on an high-tech gadget! Besides, I can sense the mood of the closest of my pals just by reading their text to me… Thanks for this yet another great piece Andy.
