DEVELOPMENT of various technical gadgets like cellphones, laptops, iphones, ipads, palm tops and desktops have made life easier, comfortable and convenient, especially for the youth.
We may not be able to dream a day without using these gadgets. Yes, these wonderful instruments have brought in so much of comforts for us as most of our aspirations, jobs and needs are fulfilled by them in a fraction of a minute.
Sms, Facebook, chats have opened a new world before us and we connect to each other so relentlessly. A mute question is whether these gadgets are used in the right way, for the right purpose and in the right direction. No, our cellphones are for casual chats and endless calls.
Our computers are usually used for accessing social networking sites and for playing games. This will not lead us anywhere except for giving us an instant enjoyment and continued frustration. We should use them in the right way to achieve our goals.
These gadgets are a treasure of knowledge. What our elders missed in their generation, we are blessed with now. We can use them effectively for learning, teaching and communicating. Our thoughts, ideas and concerns on socioeconomic and political issues can be aired through them.
