I feel amazed to look back to the time when I was in my
pre-primary school. Going to school and being in the classroom was one of the
most beautiful experiences, I consider. Frankly speaking, when I first saw
computer in my headmaster’s office, I was left with my jaw wide open. I was so
much fascinated by it. I would wonder how that electronic creature functions.
My curiosity used to kill me inside. But sadly, never got a chance to touch it.
Fanciful gadgets always enthralled me.
Now, that time is gone. Time waited for none of us. It just
slipped without our notice. For the children of today’s time, nothing is
captivating. Right after their birth, they are introduced to all kinds of
materialistic device. Space for curiosity has been subdued. Going to school is
weary for them. Books contain only facts, fractions and figures. For them,
there is nothing to explore. Things don’t fascinate them because materialistic
device has made them all well known to world. Time has transformed everything,
including people’s perception and their living standards. Let me share
something, I was left numb when I saw my three year old nephew activating his
father’s laptop and watching cartoon. When I was of his age, frankly telling I
did not know whether this type of device exist or not. Time is so surprising and the change it has brought
in is stunning.
I am growing old and hopefully I am becoming more mature.
I feel that nothing has changed. I find everything same, such as, my way of
wearing kira, my friends, my sisters pampering and calling me with disgusting
names. But somewhere within the cage of my ribs, I know things have changed
hugely. Unquestionably, excluding biological changes, everything seems the same.
But when I turn back and look, everything is different.
