Texting Fever..

It felt like magic just a decade ago. How you could save yourself from a buck-blasting call just by sending a simple text message. Texting was the in-thing but not that much common. No one had thought about the consequences of this magical service. The situation was all normal when there were huge constraints of monopolized service charges which were keeping the text flood under control.

But as the saying goes, 'Time and tide wait for none'.. Wait ! Was that even a saying?

Whatever ! Time moved on anyway and competitor telecom companies started moving in. With the advent of these new competitors the monopolized situation changed into a fierce competition. The service charges went down and let the text flood loose.

Its been years since that text flood was unleashed upon us and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Well, Texting is quite useful at times:

Missing a friend? Your hand autonomously reaches your cell and types 'Hey ! What's up?'

Not sure about tomorrow's class schedule? Your cell is the solution.

Its some friend's birthday? The autonomous process starts again.

There are a hundred more reasons to send a text but you get so damn irritated when you receive unsolicited texts with unrealistic information and as a cherry on the top they contain threats as well, in case you show a bit of sluggishness in forwarding those stupid texts to at least 15 or 20 people.

Then comes the turn of those 'Good Morning' texts which don't seem to stop even when the morning turns into a full fledged day.

The day moves on and then come those 'supposed-to-be-funny' texts specially those torturing the soul of 'Faraz'.

Oh! I just saw my cell's LCD flash. Seems like its one of those 'Good Night' texts. Cheers !
