There was a time when the day started with a greeting at the light of dawn
Now it all starts with the light of mobile screen
There was a time when travellers used to chat with one another.
Now traveling is to update status and post photos.
There was a time when writing meant using a pen and paper.
Now all it mean, is clicking of buttons on a keyboard.
There was a time, when postman were eagerly awaited.
Now that is all a thing of the past.
There was a time when movies were a family affair.
Now Netflix on phone makes everyone watch on their own.
There was a time when children learned from parents.
Now it is children who teach it all to their parents.
There was a time when holidays at home meant board games & conversations
Now all the catching up is on What app and Facebook.
There was a time when life had time to catch up with one another.
Now life runs after time to catch up with time.
With the advent of times,
The sense of family is fast disappearing.
Each lives for themselves and prefers their own company.
Each spends and cares more for their gadgets than people around them.
With the apathy and indifference that abounds,
The Social recluses we are all becoming confounds.
Such is the time we live in today…
Wonder what future we have, to reckon with?
