Love Sans Technology

Love sans technology, sounds weird, but it actually made me think how technology changed the definition of love. In todays world we have a lot of ways to communicate, right from SMS, Whatsapp, Social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram, twitter and so on..

               


You will find people writing just about everything on their social networking profile, be it very personal or embarrassing. Whatsapp rings more frequently than temple bells. You have people flooding Instagram with self obsessed pics.

Imagine a world without all this... No mobile phones, social networking sites, emails. A handwritten letter from your loved one.. would make us feel special. Its an effort and that means something!. The curiosity and excitement would mean so much more than receiving an email or a text msg. Nowadays you have so much of emoticons that can be used in a text chat but still they appear vague and lack feelings. When someone pens down his/her feelings  the true sentiments come out. Its like pouring your heart out on a piece of paper.

There will be no bragging of  relationship status on social networking sites, no more selfies on a date. Just a simple romantic dinner without any calls and random pings. Those silent moments on a date, where you can look into each others eyes rather your mobile phones..

Its not that technology has ruined anything, wish I could I go in the past experience all this! I so wish I had a Time machine!!
