I had a dream! A dream that we changed!One fine summer morning in the Swiss Alps, life was peaceful,
At a discrete resort, the who's who's of social media gathered.
It was the mother of all summit were all rivals had assembled
to discuss, to negotiate, above all to earn and survive!
The stakeholders of google, facebook, what's app, twitter, yahoo,
instagram, shareit, and youtube had joined forces with greed.
It was simple decision to charge an annual subscription charge,
Messages, images, videos, emails, uploads, downloads to be charged
The world woke up next day morning to an utter chaos and shock,
All they got was a message about charges, stunned by what followed.
Their money was getting wiped out at a rapid pace.People now understood,
their social media life was billed, every minute, second, as fast as they used it.
People went into survival mode, gone were the endless forwards, countless
videos sent, what's app administrators gave up their groups instantly.
Behold! the world was back to good old telephone, fax, telegram days,
Using it only when necessary, locking their fingers when not necessary.
By a month, a miracle had happened, children and adults were
playing in the streets, parks, grounds. Family dinners were like festival
dinners where everyone sat at the table.
Children were happy , Fathers, more affectionate, mothers, more loving,
Teenagers fit,full of energy. Stress and psychological issues vanished.
Bankruptcy was declared by social media giants, mega internet providers,
the gadget makers and the app inventors and all the mobile companies
All had only one question. God! how could you allow man to think?
Is it true that man can change for his own good?
I woke up from this pleasant dream, hoping it to be true! Wouldn't you hope too?
