Pongal – a Festival of Harvest, is celebrated today in TamilNadu. My folks always keep me updated with all that is happening over there, thanks to a Family WhatsApp group. Even though for the most part I have muted that group and pitch in only once in a while, it still is one that gives me all the latest news over there, including the movie which my brother is going to take his family to. He is the main contributor to the group along with my aunt. My mother and my husband are the viewers (ones who send out a message once a month in that group as a response to someone). Who would have thought that such a thing would exist a couple of years ago? And that my mom would be texting and WhatsApp-ing me? 🙂 Even though I am slightly wary of the technological advances, I do appreciate its effort in bringing the people you love closer to you, even without FaceBook.
