As she gets back from office, Sneha is greeted by her maid while all other members are engrossed in their virtual world. As she passes by the drawing room, Sneha finds her spouse Vikram updating his status from his Laptop. Her 9 year old daughter is peering into the LCD TV screen, whereas her 11 years old son is busy with his PlayStation.
The picturesque was to be quite different 5 years back, when people was not so tech pro. Not only the grown ups but also the kids are becoming so gadget friendly these days. Gone are the days wherein the kids would be craving to go to the adjacent park or play area to get into outdoor activities and spending hours in the open air. Today, this is how technology is driving our needs more than we drive them.
Living digital is the trend of the new school in town where the LCD TV screen is replacing the old school black-boards. The crowd in the joggers park is lessening day by day (thanks to the motorized treadmills). Everything is turning out in a mobile state, with the number of mobile phones in the country is growing more than the number of private toilets available for use. Scenario have also changed for the book readers, they no more prefer printed books, instead they have turned E-readers. The entire generation cannot think a life without the Blackberry and Apple iPods/iPads. But life was much simpler and easy going when they were just considered as fruits.
