WhatsApp for me becomes stressful sometimes, managing so many groups ! Well, I try to stay in the least groups as possible.
It also has its advantages as you don’t have to disturb people for small reminders or you can send constant reminders to the forgetful lot who have forgotten to do your work but claim “yaar I did not see your missed call” ( cause you know once someone has checked your whatsApp message) or you don’t need to disturb the husband when he is in a meeting with his boss with the grocery list. Its also helpful when you don’t want to call someone but want to wish them a happy birthday. Now for that, WhatsApp is a boon. I also like the emojis on the WhatsApp as well. When you don’t have time to interact much but want to tell your group members “abhi hum zindha hai..”(only filmy people will get this joke), eek emoji phek deneki…😜😀
Once I got a dinner invitation from a long lost friend on WhatsApp. Now I was confused – does she want me to come? or is it an invitation for the sake of it. So we decided to bunk it. In return I also send her a whatapp,”sorry could not make it”, on the evening of the dinner. Later when I met her afters a few months she inquired with concern,”why didn’t u come for dinner?” I did not know what to say !
Imagine one day people are invited for weddings on WhatsApp. Then it will be good cause less weddings to attend.! Lolz
Well in this world of WhatsApp I wish I could write letters like the old days !
The only person I write letters in this digital world is a grandmother whom I call “nani” She lives in mumbai. I enjoy writing on paper, feeling the paper and the smell of the paper. Oyee! F.Scott ki atma singing yo yo honey singh’s tunes! Now I feel I have become a grandmother preaching my old ideas through rap songs. Ha Ha Ha…
