These illustrations on life before internet will take you back in time!

The Internet is a blessing and a curse at the same time, ever since the mobile phones have advanced, internet has become a necessity for everyone.

An artist Ali Miri (@alimiri) shared his take on life before internet and it is absolutely beautiful and is guaranteed to take you back to the golden days:

What every evening used to look like after school:

Making figures with your hands in candle light was a sports of it’s own:

Anxiously waiting for your father coming home with your favourite snacks was something we’ll always cherish:

This is what drives looked like before Snapchat and Instagram:

This is what children did in their leisure time:

We used to create our happiness:

What spending time with Nanis and Dadis looked like:

When we used to build forts:

When playing with mattresses was the best thing we had:

Remember this? Us too!

How watching cartoons together was therapeutic:

When our elder siblings were our first tutors:

When school was not to be missed no matter what the circumstances:

When the camera pictures would develop and then we’d spend the whole day deciding what pictures to put in the album:

When letters mattered:

When drives were all about meaningful conversations:

When greetings were expressed via hand made cards rather than tags on social media:
