Mobile Phone

Mobile phone is a marvel of the modern world. The cellular phone is useful for businessmen, professionals, and tourists. It has some demerits too. We should not use it while driving and in aero planes and petrol bunks. Too much of its use, is a health hazard. Unnecessary SMS our time. We should use it properly.
