A Day without smartphone- Longest Horror Story

A Day without smartphone- Longest Horror Story

What was it?
It was the sound that kept me awake for the next twenty-four hours.
The sound that tore my heart into innumerable pieces.
The sound that filled my mind with many fears of ‘What if?’ and ‘How to?’
Yes, it was the breaking sound of my beloved smartphone. My students were watching else I would have burst into tears. I was in a state of shock and the moment seemed to be the last moment on the earth.
“How could you?” I came to life with the ‘sympathetic words’ from one of my colleagues. The tears waiting to flow managed with wet eyes and self-control.

I had spent a moolah to grab the eye-catching handset. No need to mention but it was the best thing I had at the time it slipped from my hand with a bang! The tragedy of my life.
Couldn’t believe my eyes that my smartphone was lying in a pool of glass.


This is the case with everybody out there. We keep our smartphones closer than anything else. The fear of losing a smartphone is more common than the fear of losing a loved one. Unbelievable, but this is what studies show.

Back to my case.
I took the broken phone to the mobile store and they promised to change the glass in twenty-four hours.

Heartbroken, I returned home only to come back at the scheduled time. These twenty-four hours made it to the most difficult hours of my life. There was an end to making calls, sending messages, listening to music, watching movies and the extra-long chatting sessions! I found that I’ve stopped looking at the clock to check time, the smartphone has become such a necessity!

The smartphone is a smart invention that keeps track of all our stuff. The irony is that we forget to update ourselves while updating our smartphones. Smartphones are becoming smarter and humans are going in the opposite direction;)

A study shows that the Mere Presence of One’s Own Smartphone Reduces Available Cognitive Capacity.

The attention span, memory and reasoning suffer substantially as our smartphone becomes smarter.
The question is, “Can we go back to the less smart days to make up for lost intelligence?”

    True. We usually find the usefulness of something in its absence more! Loved your comparison – pool of glass!

    Well. True to the bone. Our dependence (or obsession rather) with the smartphone has literally made us slaves to technology. From social networking to Swiggy, we cannot imagine a day without our phones. I recently read an article titled “Digital Heroine for Kids”. The addictive nature of Smartphones and its impact on Kids is beyond damage control.

      Children do what they see. We are so addicted to phones that life seems to stop without them.

    Being a blogger it is very difficult to put the phone away. At least we can reduce the usage and use it only when required! Good post Aditi.
