BEFORE AND NOW



There are a lot of tasks, that I fondly and look forward to doing during my younger years. But most of these traditions are sort of obsolete and considered passe these days. Let me give you an example.

I love writing poems and scribbling them in cards, then using the post mail to send them. I also like receiving love letters from the mail and gifts delivered to my home address, like flowers, boxes of chocolates and candies. This face to face conversation with friends, done with a social visit, is something to look forward to during my time.

Technology has taken away so many things that used to be. I am safe to say that we do things impersonally now. There is the cellphone and laptop that will execute our communications or messaging immediately, vividly and briefly, in place of writing and mailing a letter or doing a social visit.

The presence of convenient ways and means has made life less complicated for us. With the internet and its available search engines, the need for information on hand is made accessible, in lieu of spending long hours in libraries and scouring through sets of encyclopedia, manuals, newspapers and the likes. The facility allows with ease securing information, at the least possible time.

With the appearance of electronic items and appliances, manual labor is lessened and becomes less time consuming. Consider the dishwasher, that eliminates manual contact in washing your sets of dinner wares, thus making everything as hygienic. With an electronic washing machine, washing, rinsing, hanging, drying of clothes are done more systematically. Who would need the sun, to dry the washed clothes, since you can just hang them dry. The convection type of cooking has minimized if not eliminated accidents of scalding one's hand.

Sadly the folks of yore days, find it difficult to adjust themselves to such improvements, because they lack the knowledge and orientation of doing what is conventional now. The past high school reunion that I had attended revealed some in my high school batch, who do not use what we call smartphones, hence making communications with them limited or none at all. These folks are not attuned to a fast-paced mode of living, typical of today. So they are left out.

I believe one has to go out of his shell to learn and adapt to what is new and to the changes around him; that what used to be should be replaced by what should be going on right now.

So what have you been doing?

Fashion and hairstyles go on a cycle. But technology, advanced as they are , are not only replacing the traditional manual works but unfortunately replacing peoples brains. A good example of that is that people rely on calculators now than doing the manual mathematics or actual mind-computing. With the advent of gadgets, families do not talk to each other anymore but even at home, they are busy with their celfones and other gadgets. People use the same high technology to destroy or steal other people’s identity or money by hacking and shutdown the computer system to create chaos. Hayz, the price we have to pay. But, it is the trend. We must go with the flow or be left behind.

what i lament is the fact that more people succumb to suicide because of depression these days....many famous persons have done it, like mrs. doubtfire or rather, robin williams...overdosage of drugs has also become prevalent causes of deaths, take for example, whitney houston...although these are not new to anymore, but the fact that emotions are overruling the minds is something uncommon then and very common now...
