Being Social

They sat in solitude. Without any anxiety of what the ‘virtual’ world is up to. They cherished the occasional silence, which diverted their mind to listen to the crashing of waves. This was their idea of an ideal world. Where time stood still. Where setting of sun was an indication of time, not the watch. They detested the idea of social media.

Social to them meant being one with society, spending actual time with friends, talking incessantly, engaging with neighbors at community events, laughing at even a slight remark, fishing with friends, walking about the town, greeting strangers, offering water to the thirsty, food to the poor and shelter to the needy. That’s how the concept of humanity was designed. That’s how it should be. That’s how it will be, right until they breathe their last.
