Mobile Phone Subscribers Behavioral Pattern

1980’s having phone is a status mark and also big headache for hosts. So many of us, have witnessed these nuisances, guests come and after going through telephone directory for an hour to find the number of distant relative or friend, finally they will introduce themselves, after dialing few wrong numbers. Helplessly host has to sit tight with hopeless smiling face.


1988 telephone communication underwent huge breakthrough, after 5 years same trend reached Asia and other eastern world. After cellular phone came to market, communication became so fast and information started spreading across continents in a flashing speed. Certainly gossip and rumors can not be called as information, unfortunately its travelling speed is more faster than the useful message.

So many people using cell phone as a desk phone only, because they never carry the cell phone  with them, either they will leave it at their desk or keep it safely in their bag. They will make calls that too when they are in some need.

Few people, after seeing the voice message only they will call them back. After listening twice, they will analyze how talking with other party is useful to themselves, otherwise they never call them back.

Moment phone call comes, if some one is running out of scene, either they are speaking something confidential or doing something wrong. Some people used to hide their number as private number, neither it is useful to callers nor receivers, if receiver failed to attend the call while it is ringing, they could not call them back at all, how do they know, who called them.

image While driving, if passenger or driver keep on talking on phone, certainly it is boring to other person, that too passengers are not supposed to do at all. Obviously when either of them talking on phone, music needs to be muted out or discussion needs to be stopped, it is such a annoying for other person, unless otherwise it is so important to talk for more time on phone. It is more like ignoring the person who is travelling with you. You need not completely ignore the phone call, just attend and convey them that you will call them back and later please call them without fails.

Some people very calculative about using their own phones, but never mind about others phone. Voice over IP(VOIP) phone is a good alternative for them. When some one call at their cell phone, they will make the communication very crisp and fast. Same people when calling from their VOIP phone to other’s cell phone, will talk of hours and hours. Whom so ever may be, money value is always same. When you are so stringent on your cell phone and its bill, please put others also in the same shoe.

On receipt of call or VM or SMS, next day they will come and tell, “Yes I saw your message, thinking of calling you on the week end”, what is the need of this unnecessary acknowledgement, when they are not reachable on emergency, then cell phone is just expensive table weight. Sometime you only have to go and tell them, “Yesterday I called you”, they will reply, “Yes, I saw your missed call or received your VM”, quite logical, right! so they are just good for diplomatic relation.

Texting or browsing must be completely avoided while driving. This is the root cause of most of the accidents in the last 5 years. Same smart phone is giving option to switch your phone to Bluetooth or car mode. Subscribers only need to choose this option while they are getting into car, no smart phone is smart enough to automatically switch its mode to car mode. In near future car companies may have some tie up with telecom providers to switch phone mode, by sensing the VIN number of the car, lets wait for it, till then please follow safety rules when driving.

Common excuses for not attending the phone calls, but quite frequently genuine also as smart phones are consuming more power.

  • It was in vibrating mode
  • It was in vibrating mode and left it at my old pant packet.
  • Ran out of charge
  • Out of coverage network.
  • Busy with another phone call.
  • Thinking of calling on week end.
  • I tried to reach you at your old mobile number.
  • While syncing with mobile application, lost all the contact details.
  • Operating system is not good.
  • Lost the pin to unlock the phone.
  • Dropped the mobile phone in the water.
  • Sorry, I was busy in meeting
  • I was in driving motor vehicle license office
  • I was in hospital
  • Usually I never attend calls when driving
  • Slept early
  • Not feeling well
  • Lot of noise outside, so I could not hear the ring tone
  • Asked to turn off the mobile.

Few will call others when don’t know what to do, some will call when ironing their dress, cooking, gardening, walking, cleaning the kitchen, driving back home from the office. Least bothered to know, how busy they are, on the other side. When calling some one for time pass, courteously please make sure, are they comfortable enough and have time to talk with you.

Even someone say, “Sun rises in the east”, immediately technocrat in the group will browse their web application in the mobile and confirm,”yes, you are right”, who asked them, this is right or wrong. Ever since smart phone came to market, it is no more for just talking, it changed its phase to infotainment. In public place also interpersonal communication was completely stopped, because everyone is keeping their head down and busy browsing their mobile phones. Out of 30 minutes waiting period, please be attentive for at least 10 minutes to know what is going around and who are all there, you need not handshake with them or hug them, but try to look around.

Kids are also more addicted to smart phone games. In long run, such a fast moving animation in a small screen is not good for eyes. Very responsible medical professionals, personally enquiring about the health of their family friends, silently playing temple run in the android phone that too when they are discussing about the health issues in person. What to call that person, ignorant or don’t care type.  No doubt, that game is very interesting, but at least while they are discussing face to face, they can pause that game for sometime and can restart the game after quickly back to their home. When guest is busy running away from beast in the game, what host can ask them or tell them, but politely host can convey, "I too like that game”. Hope topic will not be switched to games.

When you are talking to someone over phone and in person, please pay complete attention and first complete the topic what you intend to discuss about. Don’t hover here and there and never allow mobile application to divert your attention.

எங்கே போனது தமிழனின் தன்மான உணர்ச்சி

சமீபத்தில் என்னை மிகவும் பாதித்த செய்திகளில் ஒன்று என்னவென்றால், இலங்கையின் 9 விமானப் படை வீரர்களுக்கு தமிழகத்திலுள்ள தாம்பரம் விமானப் படை நிலையத்தில் ஒன்பது மாதம் தொழில்நுட்பப் பயிற்சி அளிப்பதற்கு மத்திய அரசு அளித்துள்ள ஒப்புதல். மனிதன் இரண்டு விதமாக வாழலாம், ஒன்று இந்த பூமியில் பிறந்ததால் வாழ்வது, மற்றொன்று பிறர் அறிய மற்றவரும் நலம்பெற வாழ்வது. இதில் தமிழன் இரண்டாவது பிரிவைச்சேர்ந்தவன் என்பதற்க்கு பலரது வாழ்க்கைக்குறிப்புகள் உள்ளன. ஆனால், கடந்த முப்பது ஆண்டுகளாக எங்கே போய் ஒளிந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறான், அந்த வீரமுள்ள, மானமுள்ள தமிழன். இப்பொழுது தமிழனுக்குள்ள ஒரே ஆறுதல், பழ நெடுமாறன், வைகோ மற்றும் தமிழருவி மணியன். இவர்களும், இவர்களுடைய ஆதரவாளர்களும், தமிழனின் மொத்த எண்ணிக்கையில் 10% கூடப்பெறாது.

ஏழையின் பேச்சு எப்படி அம்பலம் ஏறும். சந்தர்ப்பவாத அரசியல் ஒன்றே தமிழகத்தின் சாபக்கேடாகப்போய்விட்டது. என்ன செய்வது? நமக்கு கொடுக்கப்பட்ட வாய்ப்புக்களும் அவ்வளவே, ஒன்று கெட்டது மற்றொன்று மிகவும் கெட்டது, இதில் எதை தேர்ந்தெடுப்பது என்பதற்க்கு, இரவெல்லாம் கண் விழித்து யோசிக்க வேண்டிய அவசியமும் இல்லை. முத்தமிழ் அறிஞருக்கு எப்பொழுதெல்லாம் சுய நலத்திற்க்கு பங்கம் வருகிறதோ, அப்பொழுதெல்லாம், தமிழனுக்குரிய தன்மான உணர்ச்சி பொங்கி எழும். மூவர் வாழ்வுரிமைக்காக போராடியபோதும் சரி, பெரியார் அணை போராட்டதின் போதும் சரி, ஈழத்தில் தமிழன் கொத்துக்கொத்தாக மடிந்த போதும் சரி, இவர்கள் காட்டிய மெத்தனம் நாடறியும்.

உலகமெங்கும் அணு உலைக்கு எதிர்ப்பாக குரல் கொடுத்துக்கொண்டிருக்கும் சமயத்தில், தமிழகத்தில் எதற்காக புதிய அணு உலை. எதிர்ப்பு குரல் கொடுப்பவர்களின் மேல் எண்ணிலடங்கா வழக்குகள், குற்றச்சாட்டுகள். இதில் கிடைக்கும் மின்சாரத்தில் 20%தத்தை கேரள அரசுக்கு கொடுக்க, மத்திய அரசிடம், அவ்விட பூமி விண்ணப்பித்துள்ளது. தமிழனின் உணர்ச்சிகளுக்கு மத்திய அரசு என்றுமே செவி சாய்த்ததில்லை.  நிஜமாகவே நாம் இந்தியாவிலதான் இருக்கின்றோமா என்ற ஐயப்பாடே மேலோங்கி நிற்கிறது. மத்திய அரசாகட்டும் தேசிய கட்சியாகட்டும், இந்திய வரைபடத்தில் தேர்தலின் போது மட்டும்தான், தமிழகம் அவர்களின் கண்ணில் படும், அது வரை மத்திய அரசின் கையில், தமிழகம் பாடாய்படும்.

விலைவாசி உயர்வை பற்றி பேசுவதற்க்கு ஆளில்லை, கட்சியில்லை. நில அபகரிப்பை பற்றி கேட்டால், சிறை நிரப்பும் போராட்டம். ஊழல் செய்து சிறை சென்று வந்தால், வீதியெங்கும் தோரணம்,வாழ்த்துரைகள். தெரிந்தோ தெரியாமலோ நமக்கே அவர் மீது ஒரு பரிதாபத்தை உண்டுபண்ணிவிடுவது, எதோ நாட்டின் இரையாண்மை காக்க சிறை சென்று வந்தவர் போல. தலை விரித்தாடும் ஊக வீயாபரத்தை தடுக்க நாதியில்லை, வாங்கமலேயே வாங்குவது, விற்காமலேயே விற்பது. இப்படி அத்தியாவசிய பொருட்களையும் யூக சந்தையில் வைத்தால், சாமன்யன் இனிமேல் எதை தின்பது.

இனிமேலாவது சக மனிதனின் துயர் துடைக்க கை கோர்ப்போம். தமிழன் ஒரு தனிப்பெரும் சக்தி என்று உலகுக்கு எடுத்துக்காட்டாய் திகழ்வோம். தமிழனுக்கு கற்றுக்கொடுக்க நினைப்பவன் மூடன், தமிழனிடம் கறகவேண்டியவை ஏராளம் என்று இவ்வுலகை உணரவைப்போம்.

North Korea, The Socialist Dynasty

Kim Il-Sung Kim Il Sung was the founder of North Korea, other than him no one would have wanted the separate country called North Korea. This country was founded, just by the curse of time and the interest of super powers. Kim Il Sung had few reasons to hold the top office of the country, though reasons were not valid, but his successor are not having those reasons also. Whole country was governed by the single party called Korean Workers Party. His aim to run the country only by self reliance, no harm in that, in fact it is too good to be like that, but they must have sufficient natural resource and modern technological infrastructure, unfortunately it was lagging behind in both the areas.

Soviet Union gave good support till it was disintegrated. China is still supporting DPRK - Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), by buying their textile and food processing products. Their manufacturing unit is completely state owned. Nothing by any individual, the word capitalism is crime in socialistic world, which is more entertained in the other side of the fence (in South Korea). In NK only few can flourish, those few will be in the good position in the workers party. It is so obscure to call it as a party, what is the need of party, when no one is ready to raise voice against that party or no opposition party.

Kim Jong-IlIn 1994, after Kim Il Sung died, Kim Jong Il came to power. Jong Il is son of Il Sung. After Soviet disintegration, foreign aid was completely stopped, it  triggered famine in the country. Since 1995, famine is the recurring event. At one point of time it became constant scene, so needless to point it as an event. Il Sung paid more attention to defense and military services. Out of 24 million people, 9 million were in defense related services, this is more than one third of the population. This is redundant defense need of the country, when food supplies and medical supplies are consistently running short.

When basic needs are running short in the whole country, dear leader never reduced his taste of French wine and expensive entertainment. First of all, who is he to inherit the power. It is not his dad's and grand dad's earned property. Now people in DPRK are pushed to constant ignorance. Now second generation of DPRK never knew, how South Korea became their enemy country. Jong Il was depicted as god. In every house, his portraits can be seen. In front of their dear leader statue, everyone has to salute and pass by. It more like an artificial respect and love to the country.

This dear leader's key power is keeping the people under constant peril. Anyone who questioned him, will be pushed to concentration camp. Not only him, his whole family, relatives and friends everyone will be taken to prison. Once dozen of stalemates in a party, came to Pyong Yong to convey the real situation of famine in the country. All of them were tied and laid on the streets. Tankers were running on them back and forth, till they crushed to death. After seeing this, who will come forward to question him.

This is completely black box, no one knows the events of DPRK. All the news leaked through the defectors who is fleeing through the barbed electrical wire to South Korea and China. Even then people are continuously leaving behind their families and defecting to South Korea. Security between China and North Korea is not that stringent, because once if they were caught, China will deport them back to DPRK. Moment they have been handed over to  DPRK, no one knows what will happen to them, but can not be seen outside. According to DPRK, defecting the border is an act of betrayal. Usually other countries only will arrest them, but situation in North Korea is completely different, because dear leader need people to rule.

Kim Jong-un Recently Kim Jong Il also died, but plight of the people remain same. All the supreme powers were delegated to his youngest son Kim Jong-un. This is an international political joke of the century. He is just 28 years old, returned from Bern, Switzerland were he attended school for English language. This is the first 3rd generation community rule by a single family like NK is their own property. The way people crying for the demise of their dear leader and the way people are portraying them as a god and savior of the country is disgusting, ridiculous and pathetically artificial. No one need to be smart enough to make out their fake praising of their leaders.

Some miracle only has to happen to bring this comedy to an end.

Korean Fence on 38th parallel


Any country when it was divided for some reason, either religion or language would have taken major role. Same customs, same language, same food style, same religion and same life style, though everything is same, Korea is the only country split for no valid reason other than the interest of two super powers.

More than the Korean’s interest, USA and USSR interest's took higher 38th Parallel precedence. In 1945, Japan surrendered and decided to withdraw its army after Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bomb incident, USSR invaded Korea to establish communist Korea. When USA came to know about this, immediately requested USSR to stop the further movement from the north and asked them to keep their troop along the 38th degree from the north of the earth’s equatorial plane. Quickly USSR also agreed for it. Eventually end up in south and north Korea. Brother will be in south, sister will be north, son will be in south and father will be in north. There is no way to rule one country by two leaders.

There were 2 leader fought for the freedom from Japanese occupation at different times. Both of them arrested by the Japanese army and also nicely tortured by them.

Kim_Il_Song Rhee_Syng-Man

First one is Syngman Rhee, after released from jail, he fled to United States. Came back to Korea with democratic and capitalist principles.

Another is Kim Il-sung, basically he was driven by communist ideology. After released from the jail, he fled to China and later spent some time in Russia, came back to Korea with deeply etched socialist ideas.

1948,15 August, Syngman Rhee sworn as a President of the Republic of Korea with the help of USA.

1948, 25 August, Kim Il-sung sworn as a Premier of Democratic People's Republic of Korea with the help of China and USSR.

Harry-truman On 1950, 25th June, North Korea entered into South and captured the Seoul in just 3 days, because both the leader were looking for united Korea.  This is the start of Korean war, in other way we can call it as forgotten war or shadowed war by the media, because world was tired of world war II. UN forces are formed with General Douglass MacArthur as Commander went to help Syngman Rhee. North Korean army was driven back and Seoul was recaptured by South Korean army with the help of UN forces. Just after gained the Seoul back, MacArthur sought for the permission from Harry S. Truman, President of the United States, to capture whole North Korea and to form the United Korea.

Unfortunately permission granted and end up in fight between UN forces and Chinese forces. UN forces positively entered into north, initially everything went fine. UN forces never knew, it was completely different from Seoul. Altogether it was a highly unexpected terrain for the UN, to further spice up the war, horrible winter also added to their tough time. Chinese army was eagerly waiting for them to enter into the valley, as planned, caused huge causality to the UN forces. Chinese prefer to name its force as a communist volunteers, than calling themselves as a Chinese army.

In 1953, finally both UN and Chinese troop decided to come to an agreement to halt the war without making any ad hoc arrangement to cease fire. Signed the agreement with stern face while shelling and gun firing was going on. This war seldom caught the head lines in the news paper. This 3 years war was highly unjustifiable to the loss of life for both civilians and uniformed personals.

Both north and south leaders focusing only on their personal political mileage and never followed any rules to protect the civilians. Sometime UN itself confused whether are they fighting for right cause or not. As per book, war is in between South and North Korea, but finally who went for peace treaty? China and US. After the cease fire agreement, was China and US maintaining their hostile relation? no, after that they went for so many bilateral business deals, but Koreans were split by barbed electric wire across 38th parallel. Families were split. North is suffering, South is flourishing. Those who frequenting to Wal-Mart can witness, more than the 30% of the products are from China, even in tourist place souvenirs are also from China.

Most of the communist leaders coming to the power with good thoughts and high morale values, but unfortunately it remained as thoughts only. Their thirst of power, surpassing their interest in human welfare of their own country people. At one point of time, it is becoming like catching hold of tiger’s tail. Eventually it turned up to monarchy or dynasty of single family. This is what going on in North Korea now. In the next blog, we will go through it in detail.
