In our world today, where social media plays a vital role in the field of communication. How fortunate are we to be in this era where with one click of a button, we can spark a sensation and reach the people worldwide? But having said this, we find ourselves wondering what the posts on such platforms are conveying? And have we taken this boon for granted? Is the information on the web authentic? Is there any miscommunication? It becomes very baffling to understand the meaning at times. Having the communication ready in hand, but at the same time, we find ourselves so detached from our one-on-one human interaction. Verbal communication has a steady decrease, and this leads to an increase in miscommunication. On reading an email, text, or post, we become too far fetched from the sender's source. We scrutinized every detail of the message.
What happens when verbal communication dominates? And the script does not exist? When words are passed down generations after generations, they tend to get interwoven with the story and sometimes get manipulated.
