Phone-ambulism

Recent survey suggests that 90% of the girls in Chennai, who own a mobile phone suffer from Phone-ambulism (nadakkum bodhu phone pesara vyadhi).

Typical symptoms of this disease is that the patients are always glued to their mobiles while walking on the roads, engrossed in their conversation sometimes they suddenly stray towards the middle of the road. Often the patients do not bother to look at the road before crossing.

They cause lot of hardships for fellow motorists, especially in places where the roads are narrow.

Is there a cure for Phone-ambulism?

You would think that handsfree devices would cure it, but they actually mutate phone-ambulism into something more serious, called neelapallopia..

Balaji, you missed to mention the kind of vyadhi men suffer from. Symptoms include - gawking at women in general and phonambulic women in particular and losing focus and thereby causing many accidents. For some reason I am reminded of my friend who once wisely remarked "Indha vetti pasanga sight adikkara naaladhan summarana figure kooda super figure nenaccchi bandha vidudhu".;-)

A lady died a year back as she tried to cross the suburban line tracks while talking on her mobile in Chrompet or a nearby area.

I guess the only cure for sure is if the guy on the other end can help her ? Ask me how ?

A rule could be imposed to make these patients to walk only on the platforms. Further on this a new footwear can be invented to vibrate violently in the moment they step on the road.
