I will not say myself old but as a 30-year old I have seen a lot of changes happened to like the technology advancement, you know longer have to wait for movies to watch at the television which you can just download it from torrent, everything you need is just at your fingertip using your smartphone, get updates real-time across the world.
Now why am I saying this because in our time we used to do it, I remember we as a family watch movies on Fridays and Saturdays and we wait the whole week to see which new movie is getting telecasted. I remember going through the channel list in the newspaper to know the timings of my favorite cartoons. I remember we hardly go out to a fancy restaurant if we need something to eat we usually prepare at home. I remember we wait for our turn to read the newspaper being in a big family.
Now with the technology advancement as well as everything online, we hardly do anything outside of it. Just to give you an example, I wanted to read a book called "Stay Hungry Stay Foolish" written by Rashmi Bansal which is about the stories of 25 marketing graduates who left their job to pursue entrepreneurship. I was actually searching for this book for quite some time (I know, I know, I can get it on Amazon.in but who will pay that much delivery charge for a single book), but could not find it offline.
My friend suggested to read an Audio version of it or try reading it as an ebook. I tried both but to be honest reading a paper book has its own advantage. I am not a big fan of reading books online or listening to it. I could not get a feel, might be an older version of me has a greater role in it. But whatever it is, I don't think that Audio version of a book or a kindle book can ever replace a paper copy of a book. If I am reading a story, I can still consider Audiobooks as it can prove a good bedtime time pass but reading something to gain the knowledge I cannot imagine listening to Audiobooks.
What do you think?
