Which phone do you have?
Nokia and Samsung (BSNL and Airtel)
How many have you changed so far?
Who do you call the most?
My daughter and grandson.
When has it been the most crucial to you?
Once when my son was very sick and my husband was out of town, I was able to get in touch with him.
How much time do you spend on the phone in a day?
Not that much. I use the phone mostly on a need basis. Only with my daughter sometimes I chat.
When has it let you down?
Sometimes at night the network in Motihari is very poor. So we have both BSNL and Airtel connections because you can’t rely only on one.
Do you think it controls you?
We minimise the bad effects by making sure to not let it interfere with our lives. For instance, while going to sleep, the rule in our house is to never take it to bed and keep it switched off.
Whose photos do you have in your phone?
My grandson’s (he is just one-and-a-half years old).
Do you listen to music, watch movies, access news on the mobile?
I listen to music…I have some bhajans.
How much will you spend on a new phone?
I think spending too much money on a phone is a waste.
Can you live without the phone for a day?
Now it has become as necessary as food. I can’t do without it even for a day.
Ever felt overwhelmed by the device?
No, I don’t let it control me.
What do you think of Ravish Kumar and his recent achievements?
I watch his programmes regularly and it feels good that someone from Motihari is doing so well.
