Is Mobile Phone a Basic Need or Luxury?

By: Ian Ball

In early days, keeping a mobile phone was a costly affair so it was a status symbol and people were in minority to afford a mobile phone. Time passed and slowly a mobile phone becomes a part of life.

Now it is neither a status symbol nor luxury electronic gadget. It is a basic need of a person. We are so attached to our mobile phones that it is difficult to pull on without it. Without mobil phone set we find ourselves incomplete. We do not home without mobile set, any case we forget it to carry with our whole day exercise of business, and personal or social get disturbed.

Today a person can forget his pen or purse but not a mobile phone. Hardly it is 1% mistake forgetting a mobile phone at home or in office. Obviously, it keeps ringing and where is the recess to forget it. Also some day like Sunday, when there is little need of the mobile phone habit keep alerting its absence? A child grows to young and then an old man keeping his mobile phone in his pocket. What is change only model of phone or colour.

It is not surprise that there are the people in our society who are not conform to mobile phones, but today they are less in number. But fact is that the same people have their sons or daughters, who love their mobile phone like their leg or arm. Today mobil phone is essential as it is used at every moment for a modern person. It is gifted as other stuff on birthday or in marriage ceremony. It is used in conveying congratulations or condolences to a friend, booking air ticket; booking home used cooking gas, calling a mechanic for the car etc. Think the area, which is not covered by the mobile phone.

Mobil phone is playing an important role in modern life. Without a mobile, a business is next to impossible, then only businessman should keep it to carry out their business, but a big NO. Today let it be a student, a service man, mechanic, salesman, and vendor, auto rickshaw man all are in possession of a mobile phone to carry out their work. People are in habit of keeping more than one mobile phone; a person has two or more phone sets in his hand. Whatever we call mobile phone is a basic need not only of a man but also of our society.
