We all have dreams and aspirations that we want to fulfil in life. In pursuit of all these dreams in the race of life, personal relationships have taken a backseat and we have become more dependent on technology. Actor Hitanshu Jinsi talks about it.
“If you are too much into just one aspect of life then you are ignoring other things and end up missing out on what this journey is all about. In life, balancing everything makes it worth living,” he says.
Time management and being less dependent on gadgets is everything.
“It is really important that you control your usage of various devices and not let it control you. I always make room for my personal activities and often keep my phone on silent mode. I love talking to my family, relatives and friends, but I also take some time out to talk to myself and that’s pretty important,” he adds.
Our addiction to mobile phones and Whatsapp has become more of a bane than a boon.
“I used to check my phone in the morning but not anymore. The first thing I do in the morning is freshen up and do pooja. I think that’s the perfect start to a day. Technology on one hand has improved the speed of our life and work but has also destroyed the personal touch. So, I don’t let my phone control me. Instead, I am the one who controls it. I quickly go through the messages and get back to my daily routine,” he shares.
There are still people who don’t use Whatsapp or are not on Instagram.
“It’s one’s own choice if someone wants to be on these platforms or not. Yes they might miss out on some things that might or might not be important for them. All these should not make a huge difference,” he adds.
Thanks to social media as well as WhatsApp, relationships lack emotional expression these days. Also, we tend to do everything in the public domain to show the world what’s going on in our lives. We have invaded our own privacy without realising the consequences.
“We cannot blame technology for everything. It is us who are doing certain things, crossing our limits. There are uses and abuses of everything. It’s up to us whether we want to use it for our good or abuse it for the bad. Time to dig into ourselves and then everything will fall into place,” he ends.
