WRITE AN ARTICLE IN ABOUT 200 WORDS DESCRIBING BOTH THE BENEFITS AND DRAWBACKS OF USING THESE HI TECH DEVICES.
The Two Sides of Technology
Technology has penetrated deep into our everyday lives. We start the day by checking our messages on the phone and by update our social media profiles with our latest details. We rely on a wide array of electronic items in our everyday lives.The electronic revolution has made our lives easier. Today it is difficult to imagine stepping out without a mobile phone in the pocket. Communication has been enhanced thanks to emails and cellular technology. Household appliances like the vacuum cleaner, the microwave ovens and the washing machine have made chores easier. They are time-saving and more efficient than manual labour.
However, there are many disadvantages to the same. The automation removes the need for human intervention. A lot of jobs are thus lost to robots. A machine may be accurate, but it can never replace ingenuity of the human mind. Technology has made slaves out of us since we are too dependent on it. It leads to the stagnancy of our intellectual capabilities and makes drones out of us.
For its every merit, there is an equally appalling demerit. One should strike a fine balance by exploiting the benefits of technology without becoming dependent on it.
