The Perils of Technology

In today’s age and time, we have armed ourselves with weapons of escape that never existed before and these weapons can pretty much ruin the social fabric of our lives. The more we are connected to the world outside, may be less we are connected to the world within.In our pursuit for being updated and me time, we are choosing to isolate ourselves from real people, real conversations.It is so much easier to bury one’s head to one’s cell phone or Ipad post a bad day or a fight and find solace in the so called virtual space.May be more relationships would be mended if people looked at each other more, people spoke, chose to make peace in each other’s presence and not via What’s app. Sometimes I wonder if we are losing ourselves to technology and we are consciously or unconsciously allowing ourselves to be swayed by the information overload that the virtual world entails.Am I saying that don’t use technology, ofcourse not.We cant live without technology,but let it not substitute for the warmth that human connection in physicality provides.A big part of me wonders if we would lose the joy of holding hands with our partner, singing ,talking to our baby just because everyone is too busy looking at a screen.
