Today I am going to share a lesson to learn. It is a small story with big meaning.
Lesson Learnt :
A teacher, after having dinner, starts checking test papers of her students. Husband was playing his favourite game on his smartphone. While checking she suddenly started crying and tears overflowed. Her husband saw this and asked, ‘Why are you crying dear? What happened?’
Wife: Yesterday’s essay topic for students was on –‘My Wish’
Husband: OK, but why are you crying?
Wife: ‘This essay, written here is making me cry’
Husband (curiously): ‘Which answer made you cry?’
Wife: Listen to this,“My wish is to become a smart phone. My parents love smart phone very much. They take care of smartphone so much that sometimes they forget to take care of me. When my father comes from office, tired, he has time for smartphone but not for me. When my parents are doing some important work and smartphone is ringing, within single ring they attend the phone, but not me ,even… even when I am crying here. They play games on their smartphones, but not with me. When they are talking to someone on their smartphone, they never listen to me even if I am telling something important. So, My wish is to become a smartphone.”
Husband asked emotionally, ‘who wrote this?’.
Wife: ‘Our daughter’.
Gadgets are for our ease , not to cease the love for family and friends. Your life is divided into 4 important parts – social network, work, entertainment, and most important personal life. Smartphones combines them all. And you should never combine these parts. People say that you should never mix your personal and professional life. Similarly do not combine your life parts with smartphones. Use them only when necessary. They were invented to save your time. Not to take your time.
