Lazy sundays - Then and Now

I love sundays :) who doesn't?
But, did anything change with time? How do you spend your sundays now when compared to 10/ 20 years ago?

For me, many things have changed. Whoever said 'Change is the only constant in the world' is 100% correct!

Then(1980's) :
Sunday used to start with 'Rangoli' on DD national channel with good hindi songs. By 10 Am, cartoons used to start, cannot forget uncle scrooge, his nephews and their adventures in Duck tales, Alice in the wonderland, Mahabharat and Ramayan, a serial called 'Stone boy' etc., Everyone used to wait for the regional movie aired in the evening. We used to wait for months for a telugu movie. More time dedicated to games and sleep :)

Now(2013) :
Day starts with checking mails, fb updates from mobile. Latest songs are available everywhere in all music channels, in ipods, mobiles, fm in mobile, several apps like saavan and personal play lists. Hundreds of channels air many movies, that it is difficult to decide on which movie to watch. But, we just ignore everything and try to get tickets for the latest movie in imax or any theatre where minimum ticket price is Rs.150. Story doesn't end there, food in those so called posh theaters will cost huge amount. Who cares to cook on weekends :) There is another time pass available - shopping! :) Many shopping malls decorated with different themes attract us with different deals. With all these, our sunday will end making us tired and sleepy. Next day starts with the feeling - Oh GOD! it's again monday, i would have got one more day for rest :)

What do you say?

Until next time,
