A mobile phone and its related services are mean to make and receive calls which includes other mobiles and line phones across the world.A key feature of the cellular network is that it enables telephonic discussions even when the user is moving around wide areas or busy in other activities. So practically this modern invention is meant to achieve more outputs of human minds and energy via timely and accurate communications.In addition to being a telephone, modern mobile phones also support many additional services such as SMS or text messages, email,internet access, gaming, ,camera MP3,GPS etc.
So such kind of revolutionary invention has brought innovative change in working of professional people but people are ignoring its negative effects on the life and life patterns of nonprofessionals, idle people and illiterate class.As this cheap technology is now in use and range of all classes so it is imperative to make observation that how it is drastically changing the life patterns of those people who are taking it as part time free activity or as luxury.
There is no doubt that mobiles are making human more mobile and responsive but on other side it is bringing negativity and unsocial attitude among youth, idle people, students of all groups and up to some extent in older people too.
This invention has become a cheap availability, an extra expenses on low-income class which is becoming use to of excessive using of this technology due to its cheap accessibility as necessity or piece of fun taking.This fact can be actually seen that mobiles are available to laborers, domestic servants, chauffeurs, sweepers etc who comfortably use this service in working hours by reducing their concentrations on their job quality.
Another worst aspect of usage of mobiles are seen among young boys and girls which are passing wasteful hours on useless chatting.The girls and ladies who in our culture have less approach to social life are being found badly indulged in abnormal activity of using mobiles and internet facilities by neglecting their routine responsibilities.Hardly 1 to 2% among women folk are able to manage it with some kind of discipline for using telecoms services but majority are found wasting their useful time and ignoring utmost nearest responsibilities which should be managed on priority basis before passing time with far away people.
Worst kind of usage and after effects of telecoms industries are showing dangerous trends on mothers of infants and kids.It is strongly being observed that Girls use to of chatting up to level of addiction can’t avoid this approachable communication even after having the most delicate and tough assignment of upbringing a child.In urban culture such scenes are quite common where mothers while moving ,driving,shopping. visiting schools are looked more vigilant on the tones of mobiles and SMS than their kids who are fully dependent on mothers as his/her first training camp that gives basic foundation of his/ her personality. So one can imagine that how a child would grow under the security of mobile or net addicted mothers.
This excessive dependability of mobiles and internet services on routine matters can be a reason of unprofessional and unethical attitude among professionals too.
While discussing with one group and attending phones for solving problems of others are sign of ill mannerism and lack of focus to particular problems.In critical jobs such kinds of multiple contacts can produce negative or dangerous solution to people who are dependent on professionals for problem solving management.So in one way people are becoming more discourteous by using this facility in the name of technology.
Before spread of this way of communication ladies, students and other people love to gather on parks, restaurants, or in public places to share the joy of real human gestures,friendship and even sentiments of sorrows and pains.
Such way of sharing passions are natural and need of human life to make it balance and practical.This sharing world of passions places humans near to humanity and civility and we have to adopt it as first and last choice of living.
Human minds should balance the use of technology in social and family lives with natural human skills.When human traits become more dependent on inventions and stop using their innate skills, it is start of degradation of human qualities and lead it toward insensate and materialistic attitude .
