This is the age of pre-planning and advanced bookingThere are so many things nowadays which we need to think, plan and book in advance. There was a time when the only things where we needed to book in advance were railway reservation, marriage halls, etc. But now this list goes long.
If you want to go for a vacation during peak season like May or December you need to book hotels or resorts in advance.
If you plan to travel by train then you need to plan 4 months in advance. Even for flights to get cheap tickets you need to plan at least 3 months in advance.
If you want to go for a lunch or dinner in a good and famous restaurant in a city you need to book a table two days in advance.
These days appointments for good doctors also need to be booked in advance and this period can range up to 15 days.
Even God's Darshan at famous pilgrim spots are booked in advance nowadays.
If you want to watch a movie within first few days of release then again you need to book in advance.
Do you think that this preplanning becomes overhead for us sometimes as we need to start thinking about them so much in advance? Sometimes it is also a loss for us as future is not certain. For example, if we have booked a holiday and not able to travel due to some reasons then we end up in losing money on hotel booking or train/flight cancellation charges. But still, nowadays we have no option but to preplan and book in advance to avoid inconvenience as there is a heavy rush in everything these days.
Was our life better earlier when we simply used to make our mood and do the things and so much preplanning and advance booking was not required except for the few things?
