Man’s desire at quicker connectivity with his fellow human beings is playing havoc with his sense of creativity. While connections have registered a remarkable and appreciable improvement, leading to increased pace of responses, man’s desire to write and challenge someone’s might has gone for a ’duck’, He has perhaps become berserk. He is in a way, clean-bowled by the technological discoveries, innovations and improvisations. His propensity to convey his feelings, wishes and aspirations by taking recourse to power of pen is undoubtedly being confined to pavilion. In addition to writing being a victim of the bouncers of improved and upgraded communication, man’s basic desire to react, interact and contribute has been relegated to the status of the 12th man.
Varying Social Systems
The googlies, swingers and Yorkers coming from the ‘silly point’ of the powerful instrument called telephone or more specifically mobile are having a decisive bearing on the interaction in physically proximate situations. Very soon, man will be in a position to see the fellow converser by means of a cursor from a distance of thousand miles but he cannot possibly feel, sense, shake and embrace. Emotional bonds may continue in the changed scenario but the medium will be different. The medium will be perhaps always in air without giving a feel of some one’s 'air’.
The warmth of hand-shake or for that matter the kiss, the cultural attributes of varying social systems for generations altogether will soon become subjects of tribute in the daily newspapers.
Back Gallery Seat
No one seems to be thinking. Effort is only on blinking and effortlessly surrendering to the stinking agents of materialism -flashy, transparent and short dresses, fast food and swanky cars, which at times leave a deep scar on your body as well as your mind. You are turned blind to the reality and inner-worldly asceticism. The desire to create, procreate and socialise tend to take a back gallery seat, while gaudy notions continue to thrive without much inhibitions. The change of this sort is bound to have severe impact on the coming generations. The gulf between the family of orientation and the family of procreation will slowly become wide and wide. The consanguinal relatives may stay but further additions to the family may not be possible on account of lesser number of affinal relatives willing to join a family of orientation. Both ethics and ethnicity will be the poor victims of the mad rush and a desire to crush will be all pervading.
A desire to have more and more and to sincerely follow the unrealistic life-styles promoted by the idiot-box will one day lead to elimination of the ‘have-nots’. The struggle will no longer be between the rich and the poor in a relative sense, rather, a feeling or desire of reaching the unrealistic level of parity is bound to result into further disparity. Perhaps, only time will tell as to who will be the actual winner- the man or the instrument or for that matter, the machine.
