Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.
Today most of the people are having cell phones and mobile connectivity wherever they go and are connected to their friends and relatives all the time. This is really a very big facility for communicating with each other.
Unfortunately, there are many people who are misusing this facility left and right by talking unnecessary and irrelevant things on the phone lines.
The interesting thing is that when they meet with each other they will not be talking so much as they are talking on phone. They do not understand that if everyone is talking for such a long time the available bandwidth will be choked and there will be some genuine people suffering in want of connectivity.
Phone is not for gossiping or chit- chatting it is basically a gadget for getting your work done on phone. People must understand this fact that using the phones unnecessarily for long intervals will deprive someone to get the connectivity for some important work.
Knowledge is power.
Housewives and retired people generally prefer to spend more time in talking on phone compared to others. Many students discuss academic issues on phone and thus take more time though at the same time many more students talk more just for killing time or talking sweet nothingness.
I have noticed that the housewives prolong the discussion till they find something negative in the other person as a consolation for their own troublesome situations.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
The phones should be used for conveying the messages and get the required information. They can also be used to call our friends and relatives once a while to say hallow. But talking hours together on a single call in these issues may be not worthwhile. We should be crisp and pointwise.
I will be very short on my personal calls and only required information as briefly as possible will be passed on.
