I want to let you know that I have quit using WhatsApp as it has become more of a distraction than anything lately. People add you to groups without your consent, send 20+ photos in one shot. When you are sitting in a meeting your phone goes crazy. It constantly shows whether you are online or “last seen ” – and if you don’t respond, the sender gets offended. For my personal lifestyle, this tool is truly a headache. Having said that, I did enjoy several good religious, spiritual articles etc but the junk messages outpaced good articles. Anyway, life without it is very peaceful – no regrets – except for missing some of my friends, whom are slowly coming to contact me through other ways. There are few folks like sivacharyars, vaideekas etc who may not be tech-savvy to use emails etc to communicate. I am figuring out a way to establish communications with them.
I am posting this mainly to let many readers, who used to send me some photos, articles about Periyava know this update. I am so grateful to them for sharing lots of articles.
I request those to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any and all articles to be posted in the blog. It becomes easier to go to one place and share those contents with you. Please do not send it via Facebook etc. Slowly, I will be coming out of FB too – not sure how soon.
This is just my experience – your experience could be different. This is my personal choice.
