12 Cartoons Showing The 'Then & Now' Of Today's World


12 Cartoons Showing The 'Then & Now' Of Today's World

Time is an ever-evolving concept and change is the only constant. But when there are changes for the bad, they are very painful. Our lives have changed drastically and here are illustrations supporting this. With the advent of technology, we have lost the personal touch in almost everything.
These days, video calls have replaced nearness, texts have replaced letters and what not. I desperately miss those days when one would simply catch up with their friends and crack jokes together instead of being separated by distance and tagging each other in memes.
Here is a showcase of how our day-to-day activities have 'suffered' a change and we sometimes feel bad for it.

It has hit where it hurts.

I miss that feeling of a letter with my fingers. But, this has been replaced with those soft mails that fail to leave as lasting an impact.

Laughing out loud!

There was a time when children were responsible for their grades, but these days parents want teachers to be responsible for their kids' grades. Phew! Darn education system.

The best way to punish someone today.

Brutal illustration of the dire need of people today.

From flat bellies to flat screens, we changed, for the worse.

Curved screen to curved bodies, we lost health and harmony.

When we talked and discussed before the advent of 'smartphones'.

But now we only talk to or with our 'smartphones'.

Totally on point!

Proper analog to humans.

Just like the human spirit...

We have become more vulnerable, now.

Greater aspirations, fatter bellies!

Smaller gadgets, or rather compact, but no place to accomodate those ever-increasing inches.

The heart-breaking reality captured in one frame.

Stark contrast between the rich and the poor and the lack of concern.

When knowledge goes for a ride.

For money and infrastructure hold greater weight.

Leave humans, even cats cannot find comfort, now.

Maybe we are ourselves responsible for all this, a result of our actions.

When technology is not so bad, when it facilitates.

For technology, when used in the right manner, is a boon, no a curse.








While these artworks questioned our thought process and woke us up from our fantasies, they question at our conscience.
