Random Thoughts – 74

Social space / interactions…

 

With the advent of social media, the variables of social behaviour have changed.

Duur paas ho giya hai, aur paas, duur….

Relations and neighborhoods have become distant…. Dear ones are now far, and the near ones do not seem very dear.

While the media-brought-in friends and acquaintances are the new common; the experiences, traditions and values have started changing…..sometimes for the worse, especially when the realities confront like, ~ dost hota nahin har haath milaanay waala….

We belong to East… The non-tech, the religiosity-minded, the value-based, the relationship-prone, the poised, the (may be) monotonous, the calm and composed… It relates to “optimization”…

The technology and its cultural effects come from West, which is the torch-bearer of capitalism, speed, hi-fidelity and competition…. It relates to “maximization”….

We need to understand that wherever the world goes, the values must not be forgotten or shrugged off…. There’s a meaning in the word (which is: “valuable”, “close to heart”, “meant to be preserved and taken care of”). That is why those are called “values”….

The technology means “tools to help make functions of life easier”… When it is translated more than that, the equilibrium of life changes, which is certainly not balanced in the end…
