Ever since the beginning of the human race, the species “home sapiens” or more commonly known as human beings, have never failed to bring about revolution and development in all walks of life. It is still debatable, whether all of these technological advancements, inventions, and discoveries can be credited to the genius of the human mind or more to their sheer luck because they are living in an advanced era and everything is fitting in a ‘groove’ of needs. Perhaps, the evolution of new advancements is destined because everybody is bending the arc in an attempt to stay ahead of the curve.

Life seemed so simple but not easy when people were connected with their loved ones through exchanging paper letters only. The evolution of technology has certainly made life easier, you can call anyone anywhere in the world with a click of a button and talk for as long as you want.
As in the case of every technology, mobile phones, where they have their pros, have their cons as well. The negative side of smartphones the world is not paying heed to right now but is quickly raising psychological issues among teens is very serious.
Life was cool when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits. Mobile phones have made physical interactions equal to none. The common scenery in every home is elders and youngsters, sitting together but not talking to each other.

People laugh and sometimes feel sad without the person sitting next to them getting a slightest of an idea about what’s going on in their phone.
