My Ideal Day-Without Technology

ImageImagining a day like that… itself has started giving me jitters… seriously, it is actually very difficult to imagine an hour without the love of my life, my cellphone.. leave alone a day without the most awesome human creation a.k.a. laptop…. from serving as alarms to wake us up in the morning to playing lullabies and serving as mechanical mom’s for the ones distant from their real ones… they do everything that is possible and plausible… its like these guys have actually become an integral parts of our lives…. we can now imagine a day without our family, our parents or maybe even our girlfriends/boyfriends but a couple of minutes without our mobile phones makes us go frantic… and believe me when i say ‘we’ … i would probably be amongst those worst addicted to them… oops… it seems as if the love for technology and gadgets has actually made me divert from the original topic.. so anyways… if forced (yes, because that’s the only way we’ll leave technology alone for a day)…. ummm…. i would maybe wake up a bit late considering my alarm didn’t go off but yeah after discarding the comfort of the bed open the curtains of the windows and for once let the sunlight fill the room…. for once i would let the warmth of the sunlight embrace a otherwise wired junction…. for once instead of uploading ‘good morning’ status on facebook… i would actually go and wish my parents the same… i would also maybe serve them bed tea… smiling and laughing over that cup of tea… i would tell them all sorts of stories about college and hostel…. following which instead of plugging those headsets in my ears i would maybe go out with a couple of friends wherein our chats would no longer be interrupted by the occasional beeping of the mobile phone…. i would maybe visit the innocence of that childhood again…. we might even end up playing ‘hide n seek’… just the way we did before… as dusk sets… i would maybe sit with a cup of coffee near the window… watch the sun go down and record everything i have been feeling in that little book i used to share everything with…. maybe i will once again be able to understand myself the decode the emotions and feelings that have engulfed my heart but i have been a coward of not admitting them on the false pretext of being busy doing nothing but hiding under the rug of technology… the night time shall call for the nth reading of my favourite novel… howsoever clichéd and boring it maybe to the others…. for once i would actually be flipping the pages of a real book rather than clicking the screen to turn the page…

Technology has facilitated everything.. it has shrunk the distances between people but there is one aspect about it which we have failed to understand and that is it has made the world a smaller place but the distance between ourselves has grown exponentially… sitting behind our laptops, with phones in our hands we pretend to be busy the whole day… when there is pretty much nothing that we do… maybe, its time that we break these shackles of being addicted to this vicious cycle which has distances us from our own selves….
