The dinner table falls silent as the kids are talking with others through mobiles. They don’t give much attention to their parents but to their phones. Now, a group of friends sits silently and busy in playing mobile games or watching videos. Today we only want to hear what to like and not to them who argues with us. The conversation is the most fundamental part of human personality and it is also known as self-reflection. It is important in every aspect of our life such as business, friendship, love, learning, and empathy, etc. Sherry Turkle did her research and take the interview in schools, workplace, and homes. She came up to a point that the most effective conversation is face to face and technology is taking down our conversation.
