Yes, it’s a tedious herculean task for them and for the people who help/assist/teach them.
Now that the whole world is in hands making the current generation glued to. It is a team up of mobile companies to shopping sites, home services to entertainment houses trying to grab our eyeballs by discounts, contents, clickbait headlines, offers, entertain, network, connect, chat etc etc have created a digital life out of the physical world.
I remember something like terminator movie or a website that was named secondlife.com long time ago spoke about creating a virtual world. A step into a human destruction one way or the other?
Have to say, the technology of its kind is very useful and convenient in this present world. Every aspect of the technology has its advantage and disadvantages. One should balance it out in the way its no one should lag behind in getting benefitted by it yet living a balanced life.
Having said that, the older generation is the one finding it going tough to adapt to the trend for doing a simple and day to day task from a grocery, shopping, laundry, movies, booking tickets, cleaning in a mobile or say at least using the internet.
That’s due to the complexities in each aspect of the phone and apps which is tough for them to access. It’s sad only a few tech companies or internet companies or whatever business focussing on caring for the elders. The remaining are targeting only the youths for their market share.
We need to build companies, products, services that take care of the elder generations too. Recently I came across a startup aiming at elders in healthcare in which the app aims at both the elder and the younger generation in managing the health of the elder. Yes, its tough for the elders to adapt quick and navigate the complexities of using mobile phones, at least companies or products could act as a bridge in creating a convenience in the service they provide.
From designing the phones (https://www.lifewire.com/best-cell-phones-for-senior-citizens-4125595) (https://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/features/five-senior-citizen-friendly-phones-available-in-india-609985) to creating resources, services, businesses etc to bring older people into a digital space without too much of hassle yet a balanced look of life.
Its been long time me blogging. In these months, I was super busy with my work schedules. I write some of my experience in that part of a phase of my life. It was Quarter 1 of this year.
I had to go thru different experiences within myself like delay in Job confirmation, Photoshoots, New Product Launches, Events, Travel, Hectic Work schedules, Stress, feeling numb sometimes, late wake-ups in mornings, award, workshops, arguments, meeting aggressive deadlines, planning of works(of course sometimes poor planning too), Back and forth corrections, late night works, Pre-closure of my personal loan, Shopping, Performance assessment and so-on. –
Non-stop, a whirlwind phase that period of my life(February 2018 – April 2018).
So, here I am completed my another quarter entering another quarter. I don’t know why the life is like this. On part it sucks, but on another part, it goes on. Trying to rejuvenate and replenish myself through yoga and early morning wake-up.
Hoping for a shiny weather in my life to break all those physical and mental blocks and compulsions.
Mahashivratri is one of the largest and most significant among the sacred festival nights of India. This – the darkest night of the year – celebrates the Grace of Shiva, who is considered the Adi Guru or the First Guru, from whom the yogic tradition originates. The planetary positions on this night are such that there is a powerful natural upsurge of energy in the human system. It is enormously beneficial for one’s physical and spiritual wellbeing to stay awake and aware in a vertical position throughout the night.
