Museum are fun places

old phone, Tarun Chandel Photoblog

Museums are fun places, the reason I say that is it gives me a feeling of time travel. It makes me marvel at the things that we take for granted in our day to day life. Like the phone that I have in my hand and through which I am writing this post. It is a small powerful device but I have had my moments of frustration with it: slow response, hanging up, bad connections, and many more. Yet I wonder what would the users of the phones that I saw in the museum would feel about this phone. Or even how cumbersome it would have been if I had to use such phones.

Old fixed line phone. Probably needed a room of its own!

First Mobile Phone, Tarun Chandel Photoblog

Yes! This was a mobile phone.

Bow and arrow, Tarun Chandel Photoblog

The bow and arrow or erstwhile.

Sword, Tarun Chandel Photoblog

Handle of a sword.

It makes me wonder how people must have fought the fights in those days. The skills with these tools must have been of great importance. Yet they must have become redundant as soon as new warfare were introduced. It makes me think if one should specialize in a tool or work on some other skills.

Museums are fun places :)
