Real Togetherness

     I live in a city which is considered as smart city in developing India. The people living in this smart city are trying to keep pace with new development and for that they use smart phones and other digital facilities. Using smart phones, tablets, computers and taking benefit of digital world is not bad until a certain limit, but when people get addicted to it, it becomes reason of worry. It is not good to see people who always stick to their smart phones for keeping contact with distant people, but while doing that they simply ignore real people in front of them. Unfortunately many people are so addicted to virtual world that they have lost the real communication in real world. It is not much surprising that even people in same family communicate with each other with their smart phones sitting in different rooms of the same house. So there is strong need of breaking these shackles of the digital world. It is necessary for people to connect with other persons in person, by feeling and sharing real emotions in the real world with them.

     'When we will break free from the clutches of our smart phones and build meaningful relationships with our kith and kin in the real world, that will be the 'Real Togetherness' for us,' that is what I meant when I use these words 'Real Togetherness'. And I feel that it is the nature which helps us to do something together for building our relationships for 'Real Togetherness' in many ways. It might be a simple nature trail or a event like planting plants, seeds or a trek on some hill or a visit to the jungle or a trip to the green hill in rainy season or some other event related to nature which brings the people together.

     When we go close to the nature with some activities related to it, nature gives us experience of some differences, some work together, some fights, some giggles, some help offered to others, some cries, some smiles and finally enjoyment of our work done together with our kith and kin and it is the “Real Togetherness” for me.

     I participate in activities related to nature with my family, friends and relatives and it really helps us bring together. In rainy season we try to participate in planting event and it is a fun while doing work in soil. Also every year our family and relatives went to the ‘Hurada Party’ which is kept on the occasion of cutting of “Jawar” grains (i.e. hurada) on one of my friend’s farm. Roasting the seeds of Jawar and eating it with curd, chutney with a group of people and drinking juice of sugarcane with it, is such a fun that one must experience it really! Also in our society we take flower arrangement shows and competition for best plants grown in pots on our terraces. I remember a seven year old kid asking question about how roots of plants hold the soil and when I answered him with practical while planting a plant in big pot, that kid saw how roots hold the lumps of soil and got the real answer in real world, which was a thrilling experience for him. Thus nature helps us to do something together for 'Real Togetherness' in many ways. Go to nature!
