Technological advancements have brought people closer, providing us with constant connectivity through various modes and media of communication such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Viber, Snapchat and then there are phones and the provisions of emails. However, one has lost that patience and perseverance which came with the exchange of letters, the anticipation of getting one and the anxiety after having sent one, both to be savoured. We do not have tangible proofs of our conversations, we just have data. Data has replaced letters and there's always too much of data in our lives and not enough emotional connect.
