Science has become an integral part of human civilization and development. We may not know how a gadget works but surely we all know how to operate it and make the best us of it.
Science and its numerous inventions have changed the quality of human life and made themselves indispensable, that now it is difficult to imagine a life without their aid!
We will look into a few of the marvels of the science which have revolutionized human life.The list can be endless but we do not have unlimited time. So just a few of the best discoveries and concepts will be discussed here.
Before we enter the thread I wish to share with you an interesting quotation by the one and only real GENIUS Albert Einstein.
“Why does this magnificent applied science which saves work and makes life easier brings us so little happiness? The simple answer runs: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it”
(In his address in California Institute of Technology in 1931).
If this were true in 1931, it can only be more true now- eight decades later! The gadgets can be set to work and go off at the selected time of the day. They respond to your clap or even your voice.
Yet is man really happier and more contented now than he was a hundred years ago?
The answer is a definite “NO!”
It is the same reason. “The more you have the more you want!” Now the complaint may be that
” I still have to load and unload the machine” or
“I still have to fold my clothes”!
Man’s demands for comforts ARE endless!
