Internet has changed the way of life for thousands of people and there are many instances where thousands of people have raked in huge money using internet as a marketing tool. However, all this would not have been possible without the existence of computer and in our praise for the growth of internet we at times tend to overlook the faithful computer which has been serving us so faithfully and loyally for the past so many decades. So the growth of internet is closely intertwined to the growth of computer as a medium for processing, storing and retrieving information.
While internet is slowly becoming an integral and inseparable part of everyone’s life, it has to be borne in mind that there is a flip side to it. People are slowly becoming internet morons and are getting addicted to it as they get addicted to other vices such as smoking, drinking and substance abusing.
Many people, especially the younger generation are getting glued to the internet for hours together and in the process they even lose sight of their friends, relatives and at times even their own kith and kin. This is a dangerous trend because technology at the end of the day should be used for making better human beings, who are well informed, knowledgeable but at the same time humane and possessing the desired emotional quotient.
While growth of global technology cannot be stopped or reversed and it should not happen so, care has to be taken to ensure that we still continue to remain human beings. We should take time off from the internet and indulge in other activities like socializing, reading books, playing some outdoor games and above all being nice and polite to people in general. With so much technology at your doorstep things will get better.
