Mobile phones have recklessly intervened in our otherwise pristine lives (Open Page, July 18). We find youngsters blaring the latest tunes in their trendy cell phones. Frequent calls and SMSs have eliminated the longing of the olden times to meet a dear one. The cell phone has rendered our lives tasteless.
