Day 101 : Personal Emails #365DaysOfWriting

I’ve already written before that it is a pity that handwritten letters have gone out of fashion. No one believes in snail mail anymore.

However, emails have also become a rare phenomenon. Yes, we send work-mails, and some people still send lousy forwards, but how many of us actually write personal mails on a frequent basis? We already seem to be knowing about our friends in all corners of the world through their Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat updates.

Today, after ages, I received an email from an old friend of mine and it just cheered me up. It wasn’t a very long email, but I felt good receiving something personal after such a long time!

Sometimes, you can’t believe everything you see on Facebook or Instagram. There are times when I wish the days of Messenger or GTalk were still alive — Whatsapp completely ruined the chat-exchanges that happened online.

Technological advancements, each day, are actually ending up creating distances between our loved ones — since we can see their life on social media, now who will bother personally calling or mailing them, and asking for details. Isn’t that what it has come down to?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
