When we were 21, the camera was in the closet and we were not allowed to touch it. During Eid, Baqar Eid or any wedding, etc., the train would be loaded on the camera, then beautiful corners of the house would be searched for pictures, everyone would try to take as many pictures as possible. The elder brother, sister and brother of the house would become photographers holding cameras and we poor little ones would just pose and watch from a distance.
Not only that, but when the pictures were ‘washed out’, half of the smoke would go away due to poor lighting, while half of the facial expressions would become controversial if they deteriorated. In the group photo, the image of 2 would be good and the image of 2 would be thick or squinty and then the squabble of hiding or showing, tearing or handling would start.
And if after going through all these stages, some of the pictures would be good, then the albums would be arranged and put in school or college bags, and all the members of the house would come out of their seats one by one, and the pictures would be shown to the classmates See how cute we really are, it just doesn’t look so cute because of the hot weather and dust, otherwise we are less than a model.
It was a time when the luxury of hundreds of selfies in many ways in one minute and then their editing and filters was unimaginable. This work cost a lot of money, so it was seldom tolerated.
Then what did we know that in a few years everyone will have their own studio, their own lights and camera and everyone will be the most beautiful in their kingdom.
The clever mothers-in-law of that time, before choosing their daughters-in-law, used to look at them in the sunlight under some pretext so that they could look beyond make-up. Now they may have to work harder to get through the filters and edits before the make-up.
Diaries were decorated in the name of journals and opinion books, friends were asked for feedback, this was an excuse to show off and talk about oneself. How did we know then that one day social media and smartphones will create their own profile, their own platform for every small, big, rich and poor person in the world. Everyone will have thoughts, observations and ideas, everyone will be the uncrowned king of their Facebook. Everyone will become a philosopher and researcher and everyone will become popular.
There was a time when even touching the camera was not allowed
Social media has given its own studio to every young and old
In our time, a boy who stands in the street all day is considered bad. Wanderers with friends were called wanderers. Now everyone lives on social media and the standards of disorder have changed. Now there is no reason to wander the streets and be friends, now everything is available on the Internet. Back then, the character of a girl who used to get up and walk used to be mentioned, but now every girl has the facility to pick up and eat bills on her DP, post, videos and photos, but now in the name of trend The character is also less affected.
Times have changed dramatically in just 20 years. Earlier, boys used to walk around schools and colleges to catch a glimpse of girls. At weddings, haircuts were made, a street child, a friend or a brother was hanged for delivering a letter, then they had to change their voices to call a girlfriend by calling the house number, sisters were asked for help, Aashiq was interrogated by 4 people. If he used to pass by, he would get access to his girlfriend, otherwise the whole house would ring all the time, but now there is no need to make such a fuss.
Home TVs and VCRs were run with parental permission, and hundreds of people had to compromise on hundreds of conditions to watch the film. After going through many stages from film selection to censorship, it was a destiny to go and watch a film, but now there is media and films from all over the world in every hand, not in every room, watch as much as you want and watch as much as you want!Reaching Hostels At the beginning of the 21st century, the mobiles that came into our hands at the end of adolescence had to be used under parental supervision, ie a thick and shapeless mobile was used throughout the house and often with text or snake games. Nothing was available except. Life has never been so limited!
These are the stories of the people of the last century who were born in the last decades of the 20th century. We used to hear before the 21st century that the 21st century would be amazing, but we didn’t even realize it.
They just went through the magical world and saw its wonders as if they had never seen anything new. We did not spend our youth in the shadow of DPs and filters but the people we met were real and genuine, the friends who walked with us were dedicated only to us for hours, days, months and years, love us or Whatever hatred was found was pure.
When we went to gardens and parks, we would see each other, listen to them and say our own things, check the seasons, smell the scents. People of our generation were intoxicated by the smell of the dust that spread on the first drop of rain, coming out on the roofs, courtyards and streets in the rain. When it was not possible to take pictures of raindrops, we wanted to take every drop on our palms, face and body.
When it was not possible to take pictures of raindrops, people would collect them on their palms
We have to write diaries, now people write stories on blogs and Facebook, we get tired of writing poems and lyrics, now everyone copies and pastes, we used to put posters in the room, now every skill comes down only to decorate on the wall. Is. The sighs of our closed rooms could not reach anyone and now even if we sneeze, the news reaches other continents. We are all so enlightened that we are exhausted, we are so crowded that we are lost. We have become noise with sound, we have become scream with voice.
When we passed through the streets 20 years ago, we could remember the color of their houses, turns and walls, even the people standing outside them. You will still remember the phone numbers you remembered 20 years ago, but now you 2 They forget the face of the person they met minutes ago, go out on the internet from home and forget the way back.
Once upon a time we found our friends, relatives and love pure and complete, available with all our heart and being, our fingers did not speak then and signals and waves were not hidden in every vein of our body then. We felt our every move, lived with it, and now the situation is that there are feet somewhere and feet somewhere!
If you picked up a book, you would get lost in its pages day and night, if you were immersed in colors, you would not look up for hours to see where the sun had gone, if you were busy chatting with friends and acquaintances on the only wire phone at home Those who begged to turn off the phone, when they went to play, the family would reprimand them and bring them back. When we could only spend the whole day on sports like Patho Garam and Pakram Pakrai, we had everything full of life. Now we push our children to the garden and persuade them to play with mantas. Only 20 years ago, we lived with our senses in a world in which everything is now except the senses.
In the past, when we picked up a book, we could not count the days and nights in the study
The 21st century has snatched man from man in just 20 years, the rest of the fraction that has been left has fallen into the hands of Corona, broken into hundreds of parts like man inside and outside.
The burden of the first 20 years of the 21st century has proved to be very heavy on today’s man. At every turn, issues are emerging that were never even thought of. Before the invention of medicine, there were no diseases like cancer, AIDS and coronavirus. Don’t let the next 20 years be fatal to the human brain?
The most advanced topics we are talking about today are mindfulness, attention to one’s situation, knowing one’s moments. Today’s modern philosophers are teaching us that in this fast-paced world of scientific progress, one’s voice and touch, The rain and the scent of flowers, the moisture of vegetables and the contrast of sunshine are all important for keeping life alive. How cruel it is that one class pushes us aside first and then another class comes and explains to us the usefulness of our lost habits as if life is really a game of nerves and nerves.
The burning foreheads of human beings are waiting for the Messianic effect, before the heat reaches the brains, let us also put cold bandages on the forehead of life, and prevent ourselves from falling into the depths with the flowing water.
The pace of change may be even faster in the next 20 years. As human beings, if society is to last for a long time, it is imperative to walk with restraint. This means living in every action and every moment, thinking every step of the way and keeping your thoughts and actions in harmony. From here, only those people and societies will be able to move forward who can win the battle to maintain their balance.
It is true that the appetite for color and smell, the bright lights and the speed have blurred our vision and robbed us of our vision, yet restoration is still possible. Set aside time for everything, like office hours, set aside some free time for ground relationships and real social needs. Look at the faces of the people, how much anxiety has come down on them in 20 years. Beauty requires not only cameras and filters but also facial expressions and mood swings. Understand the need for not only profile but also character and morals for relationships. The friendship and love that is possible in the meeting of 2 human beings, will never be found in mobile.
