Assuming you to be intelligent and smart enough to understand the heading of my story I am trying to share with you, a different aspect of this Smartphone baba that has deeply and invisibly touched each one of us. My this blog post is dedicated to all the women who are married or are going to be hitched any time soon.

Earlier, when you used to get up in the morning, you used to head straight to find that if the newspaper has landed or not? So that you can enjoy it untouched and unread I mean fresh and crisp, (I don’t know about you people but at least for me it is true, I have this disease since my childhood). Even today I rush in the morning to be the first one to grab it (Although it is different that these days my husband often wins the race as I am damn busy with my kid in the morning). But have you realized for many of us, the things are changing slowly, now our phone has become has inevitable part of our body, mind and soul. The touch screens of our phone have replaced the bechara newspaper. When the newspaper is on our tips why to go out and search for that big piece of paper news (the newspaper). Bhaito arram se”.

Now, when your child has gone to school successfully and Husband is off to office your smart phone baba takes the advantage and comes close to you. He is very smart. 😉 Kuch galat kaha maine? You just run to grab your phone as it is a handy option, (no not laptop, it takes time to open up..then you have to establish net connection..chodo yarr kaun kare ye sab). Rahi sahi kami whtsapp ne puri kardi. The phone beeps and beeps and beeps until you check that who is knocking on the screen. Isn’t it?

Once upon a time, yeahyou have read it right, ONCE UPON A TIME, when women folks were free in the afternoon they loved to take a power nap (I called it power nap, as your child won’t let you  take a prolonged one), or grab the replay of the episode missed last night,  but now as soon as the work is over the babaji (Smartphone) kept aside somewhere in the kitchen again comes close. Look how much he loves you. You can refer him as an example to your husband. 😉 . In the evening when women folks used to chat, exchange recipes and secrets, and stand outside of their homes  (these talks were once referred to as Gate talks), now they all used to spend time with the babaji sitting in the comfort of their homes. And exchange, all what I have written above, on whtsapp.

Even those who are in office, don’t forget to turn to the social plugins be it the active users (who actively like, update and comment) or the passive ones (who don’t  indulge in any such things but keep bugging you like anything, through your post and your comments that you do on your own updates and one updates from other people).

Yeah, one more thing, Husbands who scold their wives and complain about the nasty presence of smart phone baba between you and him, very actively use their phones while they are in office. Check them out.

Ab tho ye haal hai ki some people when used to get up at night to drink water or to avail the toilet facility, they don’t forget to take a sneak peek at the world locked inside the small screens of phones kept inside their pillows.

But don’t think that smart phone is a bane, it has also proved to be a boon to those girls who are not so good (Ahm! Ahm! Sorry I had to use this sentence to explain my feelings) at cooking are going to be hitched any time soon. Kaise?  Ase ki, now they don’t have to call every now and then to their mother asking her, “Bagan ka bharta kaise banta hai mummy”, “Chicken korma kaise banaun Mummy”. All this is now just a click away. Mummy is also relived now thank god!! No tensions now , that how her daughter will perform at the first test of cooking in her sasural. That is a different thing that these sort of tests never ever end.

So, if I will start explaining each and every aspect that is related to the topic that, how the smart phone baba has touched (oops!! I meant to say “the life of”) Indian women, there will be no end to this post.

So, if anyone doesn’t like my blog this time, is free to post ”galiyan in the comment box. Keep reading folks.Image

Ok Ok don’t give that ‘haww” look.. now read on…

I met a friend of mine on facebook after very long time. Both of us inquired about each other’s past and present life. She asked me “What do your husband do?” I told her that he is a SAP prof. I used “prof” instead of Professional. Assuming my husband to be SAP professor, she said “oh!”…(Meaning oh! I am really sorry for you) . This “oh” pinched me somewhere in my heart. While I told her that he is a SAP Professional…”COOOL” was her remark. Just a difference of ‘prof.’ and ‘Professional’ decides the position of a person on the yardstick of being cool. Is it really so “uncool” if a male is in teaching profession?

I was really taken aback, and realized that perhaps being cool is the priority in today’s time. If you want to be noticed, get loved, feel wanted and many other such basic emotions, the sole criterion is BEING COOL. If you score quite high on this cool quotient, people (most importantly of your age) will flock around you. Teaching is the most basic profession of all, as it forms the stout base on which all the other so called cool professions are standing tall. Often we forget that what we are today is just because of the fact that our esteemed teachers did their work with utmost sincerity, without judging that at what place do we fall when they measure our cool quotient.

What is considered cool today is being in a prof. oops! Profession that doesn’t have a far remote relation to teaching stuff, Having a Tab of some top rated manufacturing company, possessing colorful laptops, wearing Uber cool attire from some blah blah International brand, having an I or v pod (although gone are the days when they were considered as a luxury), having an android oops! Sorry again! Android is now getting replaced by latest version of Windows operating system in mobiles, and last but not the least is being good at YO YO English. So be sure if you have all these qualities, never ever imagine this in your remotest dream that someone will ever dare to ignore you.

“How are you” is now replaced by “what version of Android operating system your cell phone has”. Hay ! do you have whats App installed on your phone? Or you will get a reply as “YOOO”. You are asking someone that how is he? And you get YO YO in place of “I am good”..Isn’t it ridiculous? And obnoxious too.

It is no doubt true as the Sun shining in the sky that who doesn’t want to be techno friendly and posses latest gadgets but making it sole criterion to set your behavior towards someone is good enough?

Perhaps no place for real basic emotions and if anyone dares to abide himself/herself by these emotions, soon they are thrown out of those groups of cool people.

So I have decided that if I will ever get hold of the word “cool” I will beat it up with a hammer and will nail it down so that it doesn’t prevail our minds.
