A common friend.

Smartphone is a common friend of us. I was travelling through train. it was a 10 hours journey from kolkata to New Jalpaigudi station. After the whole night journey in the train I woke up at the morning. I saw two couples were there. they were unknown to each other. One couple was aged and one was young. Two different generation. after few minutes I saw that they were both felt boring and stressed out due to a long stressfull journey. Sometime after I saw them both having some good time with their smartphone. I know that smartphone is hurting our health,real world social relationships, it makes us more alone and all the bad things told by scientists and our parents but it is also undeniable that it a friend of our present society, a common friend of us without determining gender,status and also generation gap. I saw a very special moment enjoyed by two different couple of different era gifted by that technology. Their Expressions was very pleasing to me and I decided to took the photo.
