Counting voices

A lively group discussion, an intimate tête-à-tête, an inner monologue — in your view, when it comes to a good conversation, what’s the ideal number of people?

In my opinion, any conversation be it one-on-one, a group discussion or a monologue is the need of the hour.  We are losing out on meaningful dialogue today due to the advent of gadgets like smartphones and tablets.  Thus today we would  see people texting on their phones or  tapping on their ipads rather than talking to each other.

Today, we find very little time to share thoughts over a cup of coffee or to spend time having a conversation with our family.  This is the form of communication that is of vital importance.  Speaking is important as it helps us to bridge barriers and understand each other better.  It helps to connect, resolve conflicts and strengthen bonds.

Technology has grown by leaps and bounds and today most of us are slaves of technology.  Smartphones, tablets, the internet have pervaded our lives.  Today, very few people look face-to-face and smile or exchange pleasantries.  So having
a conversation is a rare thing nowadays. Technology has simplified our lives but it has also made us a lazy lot switching from one gadget to another in a virtual world.
