Jk is selected as the brand ambassador of Bharati Airtel - congrats
I am happy that this news has appeared first on my blog. Jk is a technocrat living in Kollam, kerala with extensive expertise in Network security and management. He is from a place called koivila in Kollam which might not be popular you. People refer him by a nick name “puli” (leopard) in technical field. He is been selected as the brand ambassador of Bharati Airtel due to his continuos contributions to their growth and development. He has devoted his extra hours to analyse and apply techniques that facilitate the usage and promotion of Airtel.
Hey! Don’t get excited. This award is given by me for his continuos calling efforts using Airtel service. Jk the Jayakrishnan can be seen 24 hours on his mobile phone speaking with one person or the other. He appears to be living for eating food, working, sleeping and speaking over the phone. He holds a phone close to his ears while eating, drinking, cooking, and walking and I even doubt he might be using it while bathing. This post is about similar phone maniacs who are greatly influenced by the telephone revolution.
Technology started growing and people started calling over phones instead of sending letters. Now I would prefer to waste a 1 rupee calling my family rather than going to the post office to buy an inland letter (shhh!! Don’t tell anyone I have a one India plan ;) FYI). I started using emails but I am still attached to the phone for calling my dear and near.
Not Jk but most of us or ones surrounding us use this gadget most of the times. I also own an Airtel connection but my mobile is not always busy and I don’t prefer conversation more than 15-20 minutes. Phone conversation on one phase reduce the communication gaps while on the other increase them too.
I remember when we used to reach home and we, room-mates used to play cards, crack jokes, watch movies and play games but now everything has vanished. I can see people entering the house, washing their face and then plugging a headphone attached to their mobile deep into their ears. Then their conversation over phone begins that is even worse than a mega serial that continues until 2-3 hours and even more. Jk is one of the leaders among all who is always on phone no matter what-so-ever.
Yesterday Jk and I went for the movie “Pazhassi raja”. The queue for movie tickets was small that made the provider to come late. I was in the line waiting for the person to arrive and Jk was standing besides me. Meanwhile Jk took his mobile phone and started chatting and this lasted for 30-45 minutes which was entirely boring session for me. I was wondering that people don’t have the time to chat with their friends near to them and want to utilize even a single spare moment over the phone.
I remember when I was at home without my laptop and how lonely I was feeling. Might be this is the case with each phone-user.
If you could scientifically look into the mobile phone usage then you will discover that most users are suffering from minor diseases infecting their mind and their behaviour. Reports say that even a minor radiation from a mobile phone can cause serious effects on heart and different body parts. I am not an opposer of mobile phone companies or service providers like Airtel. I want to make the users think and rethink about their usage and its requirement. A side effect would also appear as a serious effect in social life.
This can also be seen from a positive angle that it keeps families and friends together. It helps easily interact with your near and dear ones, convey the things you cannot convey in person. Whatever positive points you present before me would be welcomed with open arms and active mind.
Airtel says “express yourself”, as its tag line but it never says “overexpress yourself”. :)
So think and rethink before I say “happy barday ho gaya hain bhailog!!".
