We all live in a world of dullness and dilemma without a doubt. And, to relieve this constant stress, a true friendship holds the power to lift us up!
All of us are willing to maintain an amazing bond with our loved ones or to carry forward an unshakable friendship for life.

This is where technology grabs a piece of your tender heart! Imagine getting married to some guy you love and then settling away from your friends and family. The first thing which strikes you when you miss them is to chat over video calls, to preserve the bond you guys share.
On the contrary, most of the times this bond which you share with your loved ones, get complex with an excessive involvement of technology. It is only through some Instagram/snapchat stories or Facebook news feed, where you can only keep an update about them.
