All those medical & engineering nerds who are claiming PDA to be the acronym for Patent Ductus Arteriosus or Personal Digital Assistant, please don't give a frowning expression for this full from of PDA. Brain says I am going to generate numerous emotional enemies by writing about this version of PDA but heart whispers me to ignore the brain !
Richard Gere did it with Shilpa Shetty in New Delhi ! Christiano Ronaldo did it with Bipasha Basu, Former Vice president of USA, Al Gore set off a media storm when he kissed his wife after accepting his party's nomination of president in 2000 & it was quoted as a 'Can't-wait-to-get-back-to-the-hotel' type of kiss by the Time.com. Many people argue that Ronaldo, Gere & Gore have been groomed in western culture so it is unfair to drag them into controversy but undoubtedly these are some of the classic examples of PDA. Though the on-stage PDA is not very common & not very intentional in our society, the online version of PDA is a sky-rocketing phenomenon. Believe me or not, the most common & the cheapest platform for PDA is Facebook. In the pre-facebook era, Photography was a very limited activity but in this era of Facebook (& digital cameras) photos are becoming a significant catalyst for the PDA. The frequency & intensity with which newly married people are posting their marriage pictures makes me feel as if marriage is a highly audacious & challenging job. I have personally seen people getting married within a month after a break up with the ex-boy/girl friend & posting updates like 'Finally married to Ms/Mr X, really a DREAM come true' !! There are others who give so many pre-marital romantic updates in Facebook that their marriage seems bigger than the news of Rahul Gandhi defeating Magnus Carlsen in Chess. Since last 2-3 years, there is a growing trend for hiring struggling photographers to freeze some of the artificial romantic moments in the camera. Those photographers seem to have a great symbiosis with the PDA aspirants as both have something for display i.e Talent & affection respectively.
I know that many of the recently married couples have already started giving nasty looks towards this article. OK hold on, let's discuss about honey moon !! During school days I came to know about this sweet & hot word only from the movies; now I can feel it from the Pictures posted by newly wed couples. Honeymoon pictures in hill stations/lonely beaches along with hyper-romantic updates in Facebook must be giving an orgasm to Mark Zuckerberg ! Small faced girls with over-sized goggles & Sindhur of 0.05 mm diameter look funky in the Honeymoon pictures with their husbands wearing shorts & sleepers !! It is great to share happiness but I have seen few people sharing this kind of happiness even if they are in the borderline of infidelity. Honeymoon over !, Let's celebrate the birthdays/Anniversaries now! The nascent couple, candle light, cakes on the cheeks; what else do you want ?? LIKEs, oh yes we like it, but again too much of anything is good for nothing ! Ok, Whats next?? Frankly speaking, after marriage these ultra-romantic pictures usually appear in Facebook till 1st birthday/anniversary. What happens to them is only known to them. Facebook gradually turns into an abandoned planet. I am afraid, I have gathered many online emotional enemies !
