Disruptive Technology

From Usha Narayan:

What is Disruptive Technology ? 

When TV came to my house. I forgot how to read books. 

When the car came to my doorstep, I forgot how to walk. 

When I got the mobile in my hand, I forgot how to write letters. 

When computer came to my house, I forgot spellings.

When AC came to my house, I stopped going under the tree for cool breeze.

When I stayed in the city, I forgot the smell of mud. 

By dealing with banks and cards, I forgot the value of money. 

With the smell of perfume, I forgot the fragrance of fresh flowers. 

With the coming of fast food, I forgot to cook traditional cuisines.

Always running around, I forgot how to stop. 

And lastly, when I got whatsapp, I forgot how to talk.

End

    I fear there is a great deal of reality in this post. It’s one reason why we shouldn’t dismiss the elderly as no longer relevant. Different generations know different things. It’s better to remember them than to have to dig up everything hundreds or even thousands of years later!
