Good article.....

i think eveyone must follow this...i personally feel very irritated if some one's cell phone rings constantly while i am at work...

I would like to add one point here....which is....

When you have people around you (in a meeting room, or at home) it is advisable to take the call in another place (change the room, go out from the meeting room)..or tell the caller that you will call back.

A new study has found no link between use of cell phones and the risk of developing a brain tumor. The study is published in the April 12 issue of Neurology, the scientific journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Re the above article, not to worry. Cell phone (ab)users do not have brains. They are unconscious, disrespectful, discourteous and obnoxious. Public transportation and areas; doctors' offices; theaters; restaurants; checkout lines; in their own dream world walking in the street; and causing accidents when they "drive." Name the place; they are there. Unable to bear silence or be with themselves for a moment. Totally oblivious to---and inconsiderate of---their neighbors.

And, now movies on cell phones and Disney's cell phones for kids. Great: just what is needed. More intrusion of people's private spaces and clones of the (ab)users.

Heaven help us when cell phones and cell movies become as ubiquitous in airplanes as they are in those places where we are all held captive. These (ab)users ought to be relegated to---and locked in---their own soundproof area, obliged to listen to one another's inanities. For the entire flight.

I, and hopefully those who share these feelings, will give our business to the airlines that have the sense to ban them.

I agree with Dr Roopa , i think these days people have costly cell phone with whole lot of features but they lack ettiquetts to use them.. its ironical to see young people having them and misuing the same..
we being responsible citizen got to take care of basics of ettiquetts and i think Dr Roopa article is good enough to help us ..

phone etiquette is a must

With cell phones coming cheap and everybody being able to afford it, the article has come at the right time. I have been travelling in mumbai locala for past few years and trust me the travelling has become a lot tiring due to the cellphones. In a place where you consider yourself lucky if you get a place to stand, a large no of funky mobile owners think its absolutely the right time to attend a call. If there are a group of students chatting to the friends in the next coach, there is a section of traders who would conduct the most important transactions of their life in such places ensuring that 50 other people are privy to it.
For God' sake people! Wake up! Realize that there are people around you who are not interested in listening to your advice, achievements etc. If its so important that you have to take the call then get down at the next station and take the call otherwise ask the personl to call again in some time.
I can understand the effort of cell companies to make the phone affordable to the paanwalla and chaiwalla but plese give a writeup to ALL on having some basic etiquettes.

While in Gym
by Venkat on Jan 01, 2006 01:28 PM

While in Gym, Turn off the mobile, the one hour you workout is very important and need more concentration otherwise you will end up in expecting calls and unexpected sprains while rushing for the call. Let everyone know that for that one hour in a day you will be in the Gym. Being a regular gym goer i do consider it as a place of worship.
