Communication, can you live without it??? If you just said yes, then I would like to say you that you are lying my friend, Lying!!! No one can live without communication, YES, even the ones who can’t speak can communicate (I am not trying to hurt you if you are one of them, so please have a J on your cute face). So, how many of you do know about the history of Communication??? I think many do, but those who don’t know about it. Don’t worry my friend! When I am here, then why should you fear. Yeah??? So, you would know that the languages are not with us from the time of the creation of the earth. The languages did came up after a long period of time when we got enough time to work on our communication skills. So, it was a long process for improving our communication skills. The story starts from the time when human was not a human but what we call ‘em those who doesn’t wear full clothes??? Yeah, those earlymen!!! This is the story from that time. So, be ready to know about the history of communication.

This was the first attempt by the earlymen for conveying their messages to others. They painted something on the wall (whether their painting was very bad like me or not, but they did ;) ). And the fact was that others understood what the first had painted and helped ‘em ofcourse if they demanded help and anything else. But can we now do it. Probably not. But we can still try if we want to. But who the hell will waste his/her time to do such silly things. Right???

I don’t know much more about this topic that I will be able to write a paragraph with 100 words. But this technique was helpful when someone was lost somewhere. What the person had to do was just to make a fire or what you call burn a fire. And then he/she has to make the smoke (produced by fire) go far by giving them direction by any object. I don’t know whether it was discovered before languages or after. But what I think is they would have come before languages. Do You agree???
According to me, after the above two, then came the languages. Till the best way to communicate. Many peoples came up with many languages like Sanskrit and English and Hindi and Greek and many more. But people says that Sanskrit was the first language made others says Greek some English and many people have many other languages as the first language made. What do you think??? Which one of them is correct??? Languages were the basic of communication. People communicated by this. But then many developments were made.
Pigeons, ahhh!!!, make remember me of the movie “Maine Pyaar Kiya”. Languages were made, but this was not possible to send messages to those who you can’t visit. But then people thought Pigeons as the mean to send their messages (letters :D) to those who want to. Pigeons were able to fly far enough. The best example of this is displayed in Salman Khan’s movie “Main Pyaar Kiya” which I mentioned above. Pigeons were used to send messages around 5th century BC.
After Pigeons were used, people try to find many ways to communicate with each other like Heliographs, Signal Lamps, Trumpets and drums etc. But I don’t consider ‘em as great inventions. If you do, then you are free to share your knowledge about ‘em down in the commentary box. So, I don’t know the exact time when anyone come up with the idea of planting Mailboxes and Post Offices all around the Globe. But this was really a great invention or you can say Discovery. Whether it would take a long time for letters to reach their destination and for the reply to reach back for the sender. But my mum says that it was a good experience to wait eagerly day and night for my dad’s letter to reach their home and waiting for replies. Have you had such an experience??? I don’t have. I missed it
And then around 1890s, there was a very interesting scientist Alexander Graham Bell. Who struggled very hard to improve the way we communicated??? And after very hard struggle, he comes up with a telephone that worked (Don’t know whether it was his idea or he copied uniquely just like Isaac Newton). He tested it with his assistant and the test succeeded. I have a question for all readers who are reading this. And I seriously don’t know about this answer. Please if you’ll be able to answer it, then I request you to answer. So the question is “When Bell tested the telephone with his assistant, Was then network able??? If yes, then how??? And If no, so how did he tested the telephones???”
And then this, that and this
I think you may know what happened after this. The telephones started to sell in Global Market. Then people tried to improve this. Computers come up as an Avatar for many of the technology lovers at that time. But this was not an portable one. The computers of that time were as big as our room. I think you might know. And then a International Network was established around 1960s which we now call “Internet”. Motorola’s owner comes up with an mobile phone in 1980s. Emails were also formed. And then Steve Jobs showed us a mobile phone with only a single button in 2007. And the Phone was called “Apple iPhone”. I don’t think that I have to tell you more about new form of Communication. You all know!
