And who all don’t use either of it or use rarely?
Then I have something for you and for others as well.On a thoughtful evening, I was enjoying the snacks time with my cousins. One of my cousin was scrolling the contacts of my Watsapp and exploring the photos of all the girls in the list, trying to figure out who is/are my girlfriend/ girlfriends and in worst case if I am not having one then she would search someone out of these girls who seems appropriate for me. We, three cousins, were too involved in our chit-chat that we didn’t realize our grandma was standing at the door and keenly listening to our conversation. All of a sudden she got hyper and shouted see how far this boy has gone. Beta what has happened to you. Why you are indulged in all these activities. Have you forget all those good manners with which we raised you. Why you are keeping photos of so many girls in your phone, what all are your intentions. She kept shouting in her feeble tone and with this called my mother. And Then entered my mother aka mumma and my granny repeated the same episode.
I was dumbstruck, not able to say a single word. On other side, my memory reminded me of the incident that my mother told me oonce that our maid slapped her daughter for talking to a boy on facebook. Can the same thing happen with me today?
And there started mumma. Mummy JI these facebook, watsapp and all these things are badly affecting the minds of today’s people and children day by day and still I don’t understand why the world is madly involved in all this. I am tired of saying these children what is right and what is wrong still they will do only what they want to do. They will come to realise all this when they will be parents one day. And this way the conversation went on and on…
That day I couldn’t say much because no one was ready to listen but I had to fix it not just to restore my good image but also to introduce the benefits of social media to the family’s elders.
After few days, I called my aunt aka masi who is quite an active social media user and invited her home. Masi and mumma were having chit-chat as usual and masi was telling how gorgeous her daughter was looking in one of the recent events & about the necklace her husband gifted, the sandals she purchased for 5000, the clutch, the cherry red lipstick and the antique work of her saree.
Mumma was curious to know more in detail. So, masi took out her phone and showed pics of her daughter and then they kept exploring the details.
Mom, this is the ring jiju gifted Di recently. How did you people get all this? Mom, this is that facebook and here we can see what our family and friends are doing in their lives and we can even share pics with them and can talk to them. And can even do other more things on facebook.
Few days later, I helped mummy to find one of her childhood best friend on facebook. Suddenly, all of her memories revived. She was exulted to get in touch with her after all these years.
Though she didn’t said anything to me but by then I knew she has realised how useful it can be and I was not wrong.
To start on their own, I introduced mumma n granny to watsapp which was quite easy to use . And fortunately, my sister was blessed with a baby boy recently and my elders were too enthusiastic to see his pics as he grows day by day which facilitated in the victory of my mission.
Infact, now I have even convinced mumma and ordered a smart phone for her birthday because she can’t wait day long for me to come from office and show her pics on my watsapp.
Now my mom and granny no more say that I am a bad boy for using watsapp, etc. In fact, it is now I who keep on adding taunts . I know mom what you people really did in the kitty party that held at our home and granny I also know what all gossip is done in your spiritual discourse aka satsangs. And I am going to tell that to dad and grandpa.
I hope I have given you all a reason to like or use facebook and whatsapp. And for those who are facing the same issue like I had, what are you waiting for? When you go home today, kick the ball in your court as I did
