The plan has changed. Every plan has changed. Try getting family together for anything from a Sunday lunch, to a weekend getaway to a cousin's destination wedding – all expenses paid, mind you. It's tough. You may think that if you have their time, you have their attention. Think again. Listen closely:
Meeta: So what's your Mum doing? Why can't she come with us on Sunday's trek?
Manjeet: She's on her WhatsApp group with her teacher colleagues of City Secondary. She's finalising who should play Joseph and Mary via pictures.
Meeta: What about Dad – and Manoj?
Manjeet: He is busy with his cycling group on Twitter – they are planning to ride out for a 100 km early this Sunday. Dad's watching Bahubali on his swish new Note 5; besides, he can't get enough of the stylus!
Phones have practically become our sixth sense, and connecting with buddies – of all ages and interests – round the clock was never easier. In a 24x 7 world needs are morphing into fleeting personalities – watch as your sister who is otherwise quiet as a mouse becomes a chat maniac barely looking up from her mobile-powered Learn Spanish session; your 60-year-old aunt grins away at an Internet meme on Snapchat; your gossipy girlfriend transforms into an instant baker with YouTube and your Chicago-based rapper cousin learns to intone Sanskrit shlokas uploaded on Sound Cloud...
Then again, it's fun to discover the true caller in you: a rapper, a birdwatcher, an activist, a revolutionary, an entrepreneur – it's all in the family! In a multi-tasking world it's only natural that your mobile can unleash multiple aspects of your personality round-the clock. All you need is a good plan that helps you keep pace and stay connected with your multi-tasking family and friends and allows you to be all you want to be!
The only important thing is to share the networked life with your dear ones.
