A good book turns an otherwise bad journey average. Journeying through life alone is of course experienced day in day out by each one of us, but when it comes to journeying alone by bus, train or plane, all it feels is like having something to get entertained with. Choice of many used to be a good book supporting the first line of this post. It seems changing times have changed this pattern too!
Mp3 players have rocked in already. The innovative mobile phones with extremely good music quality have been touched by many hands in the mobile showrooms. Mobiles have become so cheap in the last one and half year and as the online review websites for the same come creeping in, all it takes is few minutes of time spending in the shopping mall and browsing in the side window of the internet explorer to the so called often visited Facebook window.
Purchasing a mobile phone is the one thing forgotten so easily with the ease with which one can get aquatinted with the new phone though it does consist brand new features. And the music downloads, as easy as opening the google webpage!
Get in to the bus/train, set yourself for a couple of minutes, put the ear phones in ears satisfying the name given to them, and then enjoy the music; its been the routine most of us undergo. In my case, as I travel by bus to office in the morning or on my way back to home from office, I’m fully on with the music. Only when the charge in my music player was down completely and I had to switch it off, that’s when the real pain of a longing traffic jam I was in started irritating me.
Books are always healthy but the restlessness book-reading causes to the eyes especially in the bus journey on the roads with frequent depths makes one lose half energy then and there itself. It affects more when on a way to office or college. This is the same reason why I shifted my whole interest on to music during a journey. All may or may not have same reasons, but journeying with music relaxes one to a greater extent.
