Life is full of surprises, twists and turns, which makes life worth living and fascinating. One such incident when I was extremely delirious and exhilarated was when I got my first phone, and every bit of it is still vivid and lively in my memories. It was back then when I was in my senior secondary school when I got a phone for myself and although it might seem a vapid narrative given the times we are living in today, having a phone and that too, a smartphone was a deal of awe during that time for most kids of my age.
I clearly remember the deal that was made between my parents and me that in case I got a certain grade or above in my exams, they would buy a phone for me. I used to keep studying day in and day out with a stream of consistency. Finally, my hard work paid off and I got much higher grades than what was considered a threshold to get me a phone. As a result, we were all very elated and jubilant. However, something that I was more excited about was the phone that was promised to me. I literally used to dream about getting it and going through multiple available alternatives.
Actually, the reason I was overwhelmed and overexcited by the thought of getting a new phone was the fact that prior to then, I always had to use the phone of my elder brother for any sort of usage as my parents held a belief that children shouldn’t be handed over the phones before a certain age. Hence, the whole idea of owning a phone without having to go through the tantrums and conditional clauses of my elder brother to use his phone was something that gave me spring.
