I remember waking up to the shrill voice of Alarm clock; I had to get out of bed to shut it up. – Today my fitness band vibrates silently and wakes me up.
I remember exchanging notes to friends in class, hoping desperately we wouldn’t get caught. – Now I exchange messages the same friends on WhatsApp and WeChat.
I remember waiting near the circuit switched telephone whenever I expected an important call. – Now my mobile network follows me wherever I go, including toilet stall.
I remember that anxiety and anticipation when I waited for the reply from my pen pal to my snail mail. – Today, It takes me half an hour to me to sort the important ones from all the promotionals, forwards, and chain mails.
I remember the time when riding a bicycle to go everywhere. — Now I ride it in gym, not for fare.
I remember running in the meadows, it was such a delight. – Running on treadmill is just for making muscles tight.
I remember the shopping trips, trying out 100 of dresses to find the perfect one. – Do you think shopping on Amazon, snapdeal, flipkart is as much fun?
Its not that I don’t love technology, I love gadgets.
I love how I can read any book that’s available online, on my smartphone, on the go. I don’t have to carry weight.
I like how connected I am with my friends from college and school.
But I still can’t help but feel a little wistful.
In this age of fast paced life, Digital is what everyone flogs,
And still what i long for is, my childhood, simple and ‘Analog‘…!
