Dear Sis,vEdham and Whats app!
Whats app is one-up over and above every other mode of communication.
It keeps People on their toes for the notification - day and night.
They would religiously forward the message/ video/ photo to everyone on the contact list.
This may often include the person who had originally forwarded that message to them.
Those who do not like Carnatic music would listen to it with rapt attention.
Those who do not like slOkams would would listen to it with rapt attention.
Do you want people to listen to vEdham?
Just send it by Whats app and watch what happens!
Nothing like Whats app to revive and rejuvenate
any craft / art/ science/ music/ dance/ religious stuff.
I beg to differ! Those who forward
1. Do not read, listen or check the authenticity of the messages they receive.
2. They don't remember what they have forwarded and after receiving the same message they sent in the morning, they forward again, when it comes in their inbox in the evening!
3. Not everyone listens to the audios or views the videos received!
So, WhatsApp is NOT useful for propogating anything worth learning!
