World Is Getting Smaller But Are We Coming Closer???...

The world indeed has become very small.Facilities like video conferencing , IP phones, chat,instant messengers,social networking sites etc helps us to remain in touch with our friends and loved ones always!.How ever ones we step out of this virtual world,things are getting murky.This phenomenon is now slowly spreading even to villages with the advent of internet facilities.

I happened to meet one of my school friend who is currently working in a high profile multinational IT firm.After having a quick update about our old friends and latest happenings,he started introducing his colleagues to me who were there with him.I moved a step closer and exchanged warm hand shakes.Suddenly my friend started fumbling and trying hard to recollect the name of one of his colleagues. This incident came as a sort of eye opener for me

Though we all sit very close to our colleagues at our work , are we restraining our self to a reclusive space disconnected from outside world ? The work pressures and the mad pace of the modern life is making us all self centered and mechanical?.Its time for us to seek a way out of this vicious circle.There is no single word solution to this. Each one has to think and find out their own.....

We certainly pay less attention to those that are physically closer to us. Do you respond to a colleague's email if they are in the same office as you or to one to a person across the country/globe more quickly? I find that you take your relationship with those in the vicinity that much more for granted.
