A friend from Australia Lynette Petty was in the town recently. She was on the tour of India, she went to many places, done many adventures and guess what SHE DON’T USE MOBILE PHONE and she had done all that without a mobile!!!! 

No matter how good a person she is and at this age also she was carrying heavier camera bag then mine and roaming around the country, but not using a mobile is something serious. On our chit - chat she told me about how the other hotel guest spend their time with their phone instead of exploring the city or swimming or doing any other activity like what she was doing. I think that she has a strange disorder might be its contagious and could be lethal also. Before she spreads this to anyone else we all should request “Apple” or “Google” to gift her one Mobile Phone and ask Australian Government to make sure that she also gets addicted to Mobile.
