These days the supreme controller of the human being is no one else but the technology.
In today’s time if one is so much attached to anything then it is his or her virtual possessions. Or you may say that those possessions can be his mobile phone ,tablet, laptop, i-pad, computer, smart watch, and Google glass.
And at the same time if the human is afraid of anything then again it’s the same virtual possessions. For example today one is not afraid of losing, gold and silver, or property that much but loosing “Facebook password” or “g-mail account” , failing to update his tweets, etc….. it sounds funny but it is perhaps true.
The virtual world is everything to us. We ourselves have moved to it. Today if one has a time to spare ,after spending exhausting hours at his workplace, he wishes to relax and log into to his Facebook account, whats app, twitter, we chat etc to check the notifications. One important thing to notice is that people remember to log out of the professional sites, even the e-mail account, but they do not wish to log out of their social sites. Strange !!! but true. Youngsters are so much concerned about their privacy today that they fight with their parents for a separate room. Why??? It’s not just that they have to continue with their friends on phone call for hours, speaking aloud. But to enter the virtual world. Today even the couples don’t want to talk for so long on mobiles , instead they want to hangout on so many options like Whats app, Google+, Facebook messenger and so many others.
One can forget to wish “good morning” to their teachers or parents but never forget to write on wall of the facebook to wish their friends. Time has come to this happening also that today the employees drop a message of good morning to their bosses. Just to leave an impact that how much punctual they are, no matter via virtual world.
It’s funny that one can sleep without a pillow but not without their mobile sets under their pillow.
If parents ask their children as to what they want as a present for their birthday …they immediately say a smart phone or a tablet, instead of any other gifts.
Even the elders are not behind in showing their eagerness towards adapting to this virtual world. They might not replace their clothes, shoes, or carry bags etc but they can’t resist themselves from replacing their smart phones with the latest versions. This is the transformation.
Now it is important for us to consider that how we are actually utilizing our time in this virtual world. Because time gone cannot be reverted in real life.
