Ever wondered how it was like when cell phones did not existed? Life was so simple. And its not too long ago, guess that was not more than 5 or 6 years back. I could go out for movies and hang out with guys at college without the worry of getting that pesky phone call from home asking me to return home before its too late at night. Those were the days when there were no telemarketers. In short, life was simple!
I sometimes crave for those days. Sometimes when I go out nowadays I dont carry my cell phone with me. I know it drives my parents crazy but I want my space and freedom that I am deprived of by the cell phone. Someone once asked me if I am so bothered by that phone call from home why can’t I just switch it off? My answer was that if I have to switch off the cell phone, why carry it in the first place?
Cell phones have meant conveniences galore but it has helped people to creep on others’ privacy. It sometimes bothers me when I get a phone call in the middle of Spiderman2 or Rang De Basanti or whatever I’m doing. One instance is my lunch time. I literally keep my cell phone on mute during lunch and dinner time because I like to have my lunch/dinner in peace and it pisses me off big time if I get a phone call at that time. My friends no me all to well not to call me at that time. But what can I do about the numerous tele-marketers, and other people who call me up at random times. I guess I have learnt to control my temper.
