Mobile Phones: Making the World Smaller

Aug 17, 2007
Globalization is the direct result of the many innovations that have taken place in the field of communications. Before the invention of the telephone, it was unimaginable that one would be able to have a discussion with somebody even twenty miles away. In the world of today, we can't even bring ourselves to visualize what life would be like if we could not speak across oceans and continents.

Not that long ago a telephone was attached to a wall and could move only as far as the telephone cord. Today, even in our homes we are able to converse about about the weather and everything else under the sun from not just the drawing rooms, but also from the kitchen, the bathroom, the attic, or any other place you can visualize. And all this because the telephone had finally become cordless.

There was a time when the car phone was believed to herald a new beginning. Who would have imagined that there would come a time when you could talk while you were driving from one place to another. Yet, even with cordless phones and car phones, we continued to be fixed to something -- in this case, the house and the car respectively.

Then the big boom happened! We saw the invention of something that brought in immense changes in the world in the way in which the world carried out its communication. The period of the mobile phone had now begun. This was obviously very different from the days when letters had to be posted whenever some message of great importance was involved. Back in the days when post was the only way to communicate quickly, one could never have imagined receiving an immediate response. But now, as mobile phones continue to take charge of our lives, the buzzword is instant communication.

We are the children of the communication era, and can observe the rise of newer and newer modes of communication. And the true representative of this era of communication is the mobile phone. We are no longer tied down by telephone cords. We are able to talk to our near and dear ones, our colleagues and mentors, and whoever else we would like to even as we keep moving around.

Gone are the days of learn important phone numbers. No longer do we have to strain our eyes looking for a pay phone if we want to make a call. Thank heavens for the mobile phone that helps us call whoever we want whenever we want!
