The usual plan of 80s is to sit in the warmth of the sun on an arm chair and think about the good old days that one left behind and experience the nostalgia. But wait a minute!! Aren’t we experiencing the same nostalgia in a span of every 5 to 10 years?? Yes we are. 10 years back the words Apple and Blackberries created an image of fruits in one’s mind. Now on their mention, people have to be specified that it’s the FRUIT they are talking about. As they say, “Change is the only constant”, we don’t even realize how, when and where we are constantly adapting ourselves to these changes. But it’s evident. Right from Wikipedia which is a mere boon for the lazy students to the metamorphosis in the way of texting. Wel I hope u r still comfy reading this ?? Transformation is omnipresent. And as the time proceeds further, even while you are reading this, the rate of this transformation is increasing. And so if you are thinking that just 10 years are pushing you to the nostalgic zone, well brace yourself!!
