When was the last time you saw something worth gathering and decided to store it in your memory and not in your camera roll?
We have abandoned the clarity of our own lense (eye) and the storage of our own memory card. Why are we so succumbed to the click, click, click and the tick, tick, tick? It has reduced our mornings to Insta check, Facebook check, twitter check, good morning on WhatsApp check. Pre-breakfast, post breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. Everything on the table is on the feed.
What I have observed is that we don’t know how to channelise our time into doing something productive. Scrolling through the feed can help you pass the infinite time. Social media is engaging because it’s an effortless way to pass time. Here, the question is ‘what?’ if not the internet.
There is no escape from the Internet but making it a productive platform is possible. The Internet offers a pool of knowledge, but this overflow of information often makes it difficult and hectic to choose the right information.
Making a choice in the presence of abundance is the problem we are facing in this era.
Once in a while, we need to take a break from this monotonous virtual life. Take part in the things happening around us. To really notice the place where we have probably lived for years. This is needed to revive ourselves from our degrading lives.
Do we need to think about this?
