The Gadgetified Society


My mom got her new Tab! For a moment I thought we have our freedom more now since she is glued to her new gadget, we would be left alone to do what we want with our gadgets. The only time my mom came looking for us was when she needed some help with her new gadget and all four of us were in one corner of the house doing our own stuffs in our own world with our our gadgets!

I have been greatly frustrated with the advancement in technology at times. This is because I feel there is less human connection with the presence of it. I used to look forward to coming home so much to have some time together with family where we could sit in a circle on a bed and talk all day long but ever since the day we all got our own gadgets, things change. We may sit next to each other, being physically present with my loved ones, but in reality each one of us would be browsing something or getting connected with someone from the virtual world. At times, I feel its better to just call and talk to them or just 'see' them through Skype. Imagine when you need to see each other and speak out something when your family or friends seems busy in their own world! Isn't that freaking frustrating? 

So my mom was getting used to her tablet, and I purposely sent her the picture you see above, to her mail box and she was already reading it even before I walked from my room to the hall! And we had a good laugh together! While the internet and gadgets are good source of communication and it connects you with your loved ones when they are far away from you, you should never take them for granted when they are around. Keep your stuffs away and speak to them more, they matter the most!
