Oh how we wish we could get back the little pleasures of life!
1. Star gazing.
Born and brought up in cities, the modern generation has absolutely no idea what the night sky actually looks like. Resort to pictures all you want but this is the one aspect of life that can never come back.
2. Sparrows chirping.
Thanks to all your cell-phone towers and radiation, sparrows are dying. It is extremely rare to wake up to a sparrow chirping by your window today and the little bird is seriously in danger.
3. Writing a letter.
It’s the email age, and writing a letter is just another task. And that is why, if you ever receive a written letter, it becomes a memory, a special moment.
4. Making a landline call to your crush and hoping her dad doesn’t answer.
This. Oh this.
5. Giving missed calls on landline phones.
Once again, to your crush. Or simply to irritate that horrid aunty in the building who wouldn’t let you play in the evenings.
6. Being able to distinguish between changing cities due to a change in air.
You can thank pollution for this one. Have you ever felt the difference between the airs of a place while travelling? Give it a try when you’re visiting your hometown. It might work. But in congested cities, everything smells the same. Smokey, mucky and icky.
