Two weeks back I was attending a conference where got opportunity to listen an educational speech by an IIT professor on how things are changing in this world. There was one thing which impacted me a lot which is Urban Loneliness. A generic definition available in Google: A common side effect of big city life. the limitless amounts of social opportunities available creates a feeling of isolation when you for some reason don’t exploit them. the depression is further increased by constantly witnessing other people seemingly overcoming these challenges better than you. An incident which was shared by the speaker which he witnesses in person during a visit to hill station, a newly married couple were there in the hill station and were so addicted within themselves in their own virtual world but didn’t try speak to each other. While the guy’s mobile was about to switch off, he just took his power bank to charge his mobile and he didn’t try to have some chat with his wife. This is one such incident in life and there are many more in life which we all witness daily. I did realize that many of us might be travelling the same path like the couple who want to spend time with family, but then we keep us occupied with our smart phone and we don’t speak to each other. Researchers are saying that this loneliness is seen with people in metro cities than people which is quiet seen less with people staying in rural places. This made me to think of myself on what can I change within myself - started with keeping away from smart phone where I spent my time in FB, whats app etc. doing nothing.This gave me more ME time and also quality time to spend with kid, which is more memorable for both of us. Though I might be less aware of things happening around the globe, but sometimes ignorance is a bliss right. So, do you think that we are more travelling the same path and how do you think we can change to be away from this urban loneliness.
