Call Me!

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephonic communication device, he had never assessed the impact that it would have on both the sexes. As the book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” says that ‘men feel contented if they feel important and powerful’, so the males got attracted to more sophisticated gadgetry. Phones were not about communication anymore, but a show of instruments, the more the buttons the more the alpha male feels important. But for women, this communication device has turned into an intimate source of constant entertainment, even more important than the TV. Now she could discuss thoughts and seek solutions to her problems, exchange gossip, seek advice and empathy from friendly ears. And thus a circuit designed to transfer voice data over connecting lines attained vastly different meanings for both the halves of “srishti”.
