Human Relations in 21st Century – Relations in Age of Internet
We are in the 21st Century…and here the life is Busy…Very Busy. “We don’t have time” that is what we say to others. Lets see, if we don’t have time or if we don’t know how to manage our time or our intentions are not right.
We all carry mobile phones (also known as “Hand Phones” and “Cell Phones” in other parts of the world)…all the time, walking, eating, working, traveling…even also at the time of sleeping, but we don’t have time to send a message or give a call to our parents or relatives.
In this era, it is impossible to think about a life without Internet (Earlier having internet at home was status symbol…but now it is a need)…we have Internet in office…we have Internet at home, but we don’t find even few minutes in a day to write few words for our friends.
We are living in Jet-Age…we can reach anywhere…any part of the world, in less than 24 hours. But we don’t have time to see our siblings’…brothers or sisters…who are living in same city, probably in the same colony.
We never forget to read newspaper or watch television to keep ourselves updated with the latest news…latest happening in the world…but we hardly get time to know as what is happening in our colony or in our family.
We have time to go to Movie Theaters, Picnics, Shopping malls but we don’t have time to visit our kids in their school or college and enquire about their performance…their strengths and areas of improvements and if we don’t have time…then of course, they will be Arrogant, Egoistic, ill-mannered and will behave in the same manner as I mentioned in my last write-up “Learning from experience”.
In this fast paced world…as we are growing;…growing in terms of wealth, recognition, fame, rewards etc…but what we are losing is…these “Human Relations”.
Time is moving fast…people are growing fast. The mantra of life is “The more I get the more I want”. Gone are the days when people use to say, “Saayian Itna Deejeye jaamey kutumb samaye. Mein bhi Bhukha na rahoon, Sadhu na Bhukha Jaaye” (Oh God, I don’t need anything extra I just need to be enough for to take care of my guests and my family.
I have seen, couples staying in the same house or probably in the same room…but they only meet on weekends. It is only on weekends that they get time to speak to each other.
For years together…we don’t see our siblings and then when we meet, we say “Oh my lovely neice…Itni si thi jab dekhi thi. Kitni Badi ho gayi hai” (When I last saw you…you were just a kid, now you have grown so much). If you don’t get time…your niece will not stop growing, right?
Friends…the purpose and emotions involved in this relation have gone for the toss. We only call our friends…when we are in need. I know…some of my “known friends” who call only at the time when they need any job…or any advice or suggestion.
So, where are we actually going? Where are we heading for? Is this what we all want in our life? Are we willing to pay this cost for what we want in our life? We need to look within to find the answer. Are we so poor in managing our time? Or we are so poor in understanding the importance of “Human Relations”.
No one likes…”opportunistic relations” or “Just in need relations”…people want to be in touch. Spending time for these relations…is not wastage of time…but “PROPER INVESTMENT OF TIME”.
Well, these are my views on “Human Relations” and their importance. You can have different perception…different thinking and beliefs. Let me have your comments and feedback on this.
Looking forward to your feedbacks and comments.
Have a great day and stay in touch. Take very good care of yourself…because you are different…you are special.
