“It’s sunday! Let’s sit in the garden. We never spend time together as a family, all four of us.”, Raj said. “Your father is right, you know”, said Preeti.
Priya, while on her phone, “I can’t. I have a….”
“Harsh, do you also have an excuse?”, asked Raj to his 13-year-old son.
Harsh, who was also on his phone, gave a puzzled look to his father, “What??”
“It was not an excuse!”, said Priya
Raj smiled, “Then, to the garden, shall we?”
Sitting in the garden. Both children are engrossed in their phones. Raj is reading his newspaper while Preeti is working on her office presentation for Monday.
After an hour of QUITE family time…..
Priya – “Can I go now!”
Harsh – “I have to go too.”
Preeti – “Let them go, Raj.”
Raj – “But we are having such a great time!”
All three of them were now staring at him.
Raj – “Fine!”
I used to love sitting in the garden with my family when I was a kid. I do remember it sometimes how we used to discuss so many topics in great lengths. But, I also noticed that whenever we sit together now, we are mostly on some digital devices.
Thanks to FFfAW challenge, now I feel I will try to change this pattern next time we sit as a family.
