90’s  have introduced us to new technological innovations such as mobile phones,PCs and plethora of other gadgets.

 

Before the mobile phones,recall how we have to rush to public booths or a friend’s house to make an important call if our landline was out-of-order; how we had to book long distance calls 🙂 .How we waited for mails from our friends and relatives for weeks on end before the emergence of e-mail; we knitted our eyebrows on minor grammatical mistakes before Text-messaging(which gave rise to a whole new lingo 😉 )

 

Now we can call anyone or message him at any time,send mails at a click of a button;sure it has made our life lot  easier and hassle-free,but we have lost the warmth of a  emotions   which was present  in handwritten letters from now e-mails marred with auto-correct…. see you again has become CU; take care is now TC in text messages…….. Wish we could revive the practice of writing letters which we could treasure in drawers and take them out in our leisure rather  than doing the ritual of cleaning our inbox every morning…..
