Ties and Bonds

Gone are the days when all we relied on was the worn out blue paper that brought notes from our loved ones. Today we have the telephone - the landline at home, or the mobile phone, and then there is the computer - we use it to email, network, chat, tweet, IM and some more with people we know and dont...  I have so many of my family members on Facebook- not that its a bad thing [there are some i don't want on my list, who stay out, as for others- Bah, cant be bothered].. Anyways, what i realized was that with family, we can chat, exchange notes, keep each other abreast of whats been happening, but the face to face catching up makes a world of difference.

My uncle is visiting from USA, its been 3yrs or so since we last saw him.. And in the time, we did keep him updated on all that we had been upto- personally, professionally, academically, travel, hobbies, etc etc and some more... But the few days we spent in each others' company, i noticed is very different! Even though we have grown closer over the years, could be due to my growing older, or just maturing or getting comfortable with each other; the tete a tetes always help bridge the last gap in the bond. Family ties i guess are stronger and take longer to build, unlike our friends, with whom we can chill, be easy and know its super strong, as if based on a can of Fevicol or something even stronger!  Not just him, this holds true for any members of our family that i meet after long [inspite of being in touch with them through the gap]


We have come to understand each other better, - spending time shopping or just doing nothing at home also helps at times! when you see a person in their natural setting, watching them behave or live their life is definitely something that will affect our opinion about them... When on Fb or twitter or chat, we might be randomly talking about things, or at times having serious talks, but the effect is again different when done in person, especially with family...

Anyone noticed this? or is it just me? do share!!!

I always believe blood is thicker than water..you may not agree, but relationships with family are stronger than with friends..it may not be as visible as its with friends..but deep down family ties are stronger..
