Isn’t it? A group of people visit a new place let us say a hill station. They see a scenic spot. Reaction more than 10 years back was of awe and total gaze at the scenic spot. Vow – What a place. On the other hand in the present day scenario the gaze and feeling of enjoying the nature is relegated to the background. The immediate provocation is taking a photo or maybe a selfie and posting it on facebook or instagram. After the photoshoot with the mobile in hand is over does the feeling of being one with nature takes over.
This is the case of real world being pushed to the background.
The selfie mania is so much in vogue that a few days back in a bizarre accident a girl was washed away by the high tides when she stepped on a rock near Bandra Bandstand to take a selfie. Many similar cases of people losing lives while taking a selfie are reported in our country every other day.
Virtual dates have become common. Even before the virtual partners meet each other they both sometimes find new ones. Sometimes the scenario becomes so odd like the case reported just one or two days back from our country. The husband finds a date in the virtual world. The wife also discovers someone on facebook. They decide to convert this virtual reality into a real date quite oblivious of the fact that they have infact once again bumped into each other. When they meet on the designated day and time they discover that they were dating each other virtually. They finally decided to part ways even in the real world by applying for divorce.
It’s a common sight in places like Delhi where people while driving a car try to have a look on the Whattsapp messages. Moreover, sometime even small messages are typed while driving a car. Sometimes such rampant use of mobile phones leads to fatal accidents. Can’t messages wait?
