I thank my stars if I get a corner seat
For the simple reason I don’t tweet
No more exchanging of phone numbers
I would rather go into deep slumber
My ear phones are on, my look is stern
No one dares to ask me for info churn
Look around, everyone is engrossed
Smart phones have given life a toss
Who’s got time to chat with neighbourÂ
You are in train or a plane, doesn’t matter
Chatting is in full swing but not with the tourist
Facebook is full of friend list, what’s up is best
Yes, I would be all game if the mother has a baby
He smiles at me and I would talk to him instantly
His tiny hands will try to touch me invariablyÂ
I would enjoy the cuddles, will hold him sweetly
The innocence would touch my heart, love holds no bar
Rest I’m not interested in a person sitting next to me or far
Yes, sadly, we are more interested in electronic messages than the actual people sitting next to us. Maybe we will all forget how to talk eventually.
You said it ! Whenever I travel or visit any coffee shop, I observe people constantly chatting on their mobile phones. They don’t remove their ear plugs while eating food !
If i sit at the bus stop I am surrounded by teenies prodding at their telephones or comparing something. Communication no longer exists. And me – I enjoy the entertainment from the various tel. conversations. People are sometimes better than a TV film – its reality.
There was a time when I used to talk about various issues while traveling but now a days young and even older lot in India seems to be totally engrossed in e-world. They don’t like to initiate the conversation and some sit with constipated faces throughout. Sad but it is better to change with changing times.
I always play with people’s babies or pets in public too. I enjoyed your post!
Thank you Jenn for the visit and kind note.
Technic got to far at some point. And now its unstopable.
It has become a necessary evil in our lives. Artificial life is part of our existence.
It scares me sometimes!
Well said my friend. We lose our connectedness with all the technologies of the day.
I love how you captured your connection here, enticing us to let go…because this is real and where it’s at. :0)
Your kind words are appreciated. I am always connected with God.
We do tend to get all wrapped up in technology, Rashmi. Happy ending to rest our eyes and thoughts. Liked the bay with such precious details about tiny fingers. 🙂
He was really very cute and how can one not extend his hands to touch those tiny, soft fingers ? At times we totally ignore the beauty and happiness around us just because we are pinned to gadgets ?
