The last decade has seen a tremendous growth in the technology. Technology, that has completely revolutionized our lives. It was just a decade ago when watching a video on a phone was considered special and it was given the prices of multimedia devices in those times. People had to spend up to 15 thousand rupees to get a mobile phone that had services that are today considered basic.
Technology has changed our lives for all the good but has been affecting us in some negative ways as well. We spend just too much time around devices. We carry them in our hands, in our pockets and keep them close to our hearts more than our sweethearts.
While our Smartphone keeps us connected to our loved ones far, it often isolates us from the people sitting beside us. On an average, a person living in an Urban Indian Metropolis spends more than 4 hours of a days time looking at the phone's screen. That is equivalent to using your phone one year for every seven years you live.
