Electricity, one of the most necessary things in our life now a days; Have you ever imagined what will happen if there is no electricity or if electricity would not have been there??
I face a same kind of situation when I faced a day without electricity. The first impact was freedom; no electricity, no computer, no mobile phones, no gadgets etc. The second experience was a strange type of calmness in environment as there was less sound pollution, no sound from gadgets etc, as I could hear the rustling sound of leaves, the chirruping of birds, it was a very pleasant experience. The third good experience was I devoted good time with my family.
Since there was no gadgets, no work, I was free most of the time and felt quite relaxed. It was like some vacation in some remote area. I was able to manage my other works, which was not possible if electricity would have been there. I gave strain to my muscle power and started doing work manually instead of machines. That gave me a thought that if there is no electricity, that would employ all unemployed in this world. The life will be more natural than now. We will be able to feel the essence of nature and its survival concepts. Probably we will stop destructing nature, as we will start realizing the importance of nature on us, how dependent we are on nature for every thing. There will be much lesser machines than now, much lesser pollutions. People will become more healthy, as instead of fiddling with mobile phones, computers, etc. they will start using their body for getting a work done. We will start communicating with each other more frequently, as there will not be any social communication sites and people sitting side by side and chatting in social communication sites.
I was able to devote a good time to my family, as otherwise, I and my family used to be busy in mobile phones, fiddling with computer, surfing Internet, listening to music, watching TV, or movies or do anything where in there was less communication with family members.
Many may say that this is rubbish, or may be sentimental, I would suggest spend a day like this with your family in some outskirt area and experience, hope you will enjoy it. That will create a bond within your family members and you will be able to understand nature more better way.
WE ALL HAVE EYES, BUT COVERED WITH BLIND SCREEN OF ILLUSIONS (MAYA IN HINDI), THE MOMENT WE REMOVE THAT, WE ARE ABLE TO SEE CLEAR TRUE PICTURE OF LIFE. LIKE AFTER REMOVING CATARACT FROM SOMEONES EYE.
It was a good experience a day without electricity.
