Will we take it to our grave?

While technology has helped mankind beyond imagination, it has also robbed us of our time. Have you noticed that despite most work getting done at the click of a button today, we hardly have any time for ourselves or our family, unlike earlier days?  The small mobile has replaced practically every aspect of our lives. We are prisoners within our “cell” phones. The level of servitude has risen to such alarming heights, that we’ll probably want our phones to be buried with us, in our graves too…. We had a peaceful past, are having a disconnected present and probably will have a grave future as technology invades into each living moment of our life!

An Unusual Bond!

He connected her, to her children living in faraway lands

She showed him a life without connecting to the gadgets.

He taught her fun games to play online,

She introduced him to actual games they played as kids.

He ordered delicacies from fancy restaurant for her,

She cooked delicious home goodies for him.

He took her on a virtual tour of exotic places

She walked him to the hidden treasures of the village.

He played her favorite songs on his laptop

She sang soothing lullabies to him.

He brought the world at her doorstep with technology

She told him about her world without it.

Thus, an unusual friendship developed between

the young lad with busy parents at work

and an old woman with children far away at work!

With no electricity, flooded roads and strong gales, the storm had left the town battered. Forced to stay indoors, with no connectivity, Frank was home alone with his family. Like the rain, endless conversations, games, stories flowed. He felt connected to his family after ages!
