-When the Television set came to my house, I forgot how to read books. I kept them aside and only concentrated on TV, the Idiot-box.
–When the car came to my doorstep, I forget how to walk and simply went everywhere by car not allowing my legs to walk and enjoy the nature.
–When I got the mobile in my hand, I forgot how to write letters nor have a decent dialogue or conversation. Became rude and irritable with friends and family. I only kept on seeing my mobile from morning to dusk.
–When computer came to my house, I forgot spellings because the computer did everything for me. The typewriters became obsolete.
–When the AC came to my house, I stopped going under the tree for a cool breeze and started the artificial breeze which was so stifling after sometime.
–When I stayed in the city, I forgot the smell of mud of the life in the village which was so good for my breath and well-being. The freshness in the air disappeared leaving me breathless and stressful.
–With the smell of perfume, I forgot the fragrance of fresh flowers that adds fresh perfumes in the house and everywhere.
–With the coming of fast food restaurants, I forgot to cook traditional cuisines because everyone wanted to simply eat the food which was not good for overall health but they still did.
Today in this era, we are always running and running around at a fast speed. New technology has swept us from our feet and today we want quick results. In the olden days when technology had not taken us by storm we were so grounded on the Earth.
We have stopped talking, only we are conversing with messages in a virtual world but have completely forgotten how to stop and reflect, how to be at peace with our Being and enjoy relationships be it family, friends or the environment. These are the side effects of modern technology and it has made a Human Man into a Human Robot.
