15 illustrations showing just too aptly how times have changed
The world has seen many advances over the years especially technologically. Although these changes have made our lives easier in many ways, a lot has changed since then. Take a look at these 15 illustrations which perfectly show exactly how times have changed over the years:
1 Sleek computers with bulky people
Humans got so fascinated by being present in front of the computer screen that they forgot about themselves. The result has been that they have become heavier and bulkier whereas the computers have become more compact.
2 Heights of self-absorption in taking pictures
Before the advent of the smartphones, people used to click pictures being totally absorbed in the fun moments but today, it has been replaced by self- absorption and a never ending collection of selfies which keeps getting bigger and bigger.
3 Mail checking – then and now
Earlier, there used to be a rush of euphoria in people upon receiving emails; but now, there seems to be nostalgia upon receiving a mail through the good old postman. Well, here I would like to add that I feel lucky enough to have that good old postman uncle coming at my door and giving the mails with an endearing affection. Gmail, can you beat that?
4 Role reversals
I guess this illustration says more than enough for me to be able to add anything to it.
5 Working hard and earning your dues seems like a forgotten virtue
Well guys, try finding these secrets by using your brains rather than your credit cards. Your brain also needs some exercising.
6 Being a teacher, then and now
Are the greatly distracted students not enough for reducing the morale of the teachers that their super angry parents also have to find all mistakes in the poor teacher?
7 Slimmer TV and potato-like people
How do we not call them couch potatoes? Look at what that TV and the bad habit have done to people. And can’t these people take any cues from their loving partners – their TVs – just to get in shape like they’re in.
8 Changing pattern of running
Look at how people run today. Isn’t this illustration just spot on? Social image is more important than self-image!
9 Texting and calling
The changes are all too evident and pervasive in today’s world.
10 Is there fun in being isolated?
Whatever happened to those crazy birthday parties with our buddies at the strike of the midnight hour? No, let us check our notifications first, seems to be the only agenda of people today.
11 Changes in dictatorship rules
Even the patterns of punishment have changed. Internet is the most powerful force connecting people all around the world.
12 Jokes on landlines
Well, evolution is such a darling! Being prim and proper is the norm everywhere.
13 Water is as precious as gold
Now, these problems are really increasing and something needs to be done soon or we may lose the elements because of which life could come on earth.
14 Family time is saved for smartphones
Who among you think this is a problem? Well, I do think so. How can a gadget replace the good warm hugs and laughing sessions with the family? But yes, I’ll also add that technology has brought people living apart closer, but that should not be the reason for you to spend less time with those who are physically present.
15 How our fears changed
Is the pinch on your wallet greater than the pinch of the injection? You decide!
