Machine Age

It is complicated to judge whether technology is a boon or bane for humans?

Machines replacing labour, artificial intelligence replacing humans,  clones being created and the existence of mankind in a question mark!

Even the left humans on earth, are they human enough?

Do people really care for others in todays fast paced.life!? Honestly speaking,  we don’t really have the time for even ourselves today, then whose gotta ask someone else how they are doing. We are so occupied in ourselves,  our miseries, our relationships, our job, our goals. We don’t really think and act. We accept it or not but todays truth is that on some level or the other our choices, our decisions are roughly based on the choices made by others. People are doing well in their life and we are not, it do affects us all in one way or the other.

We have turned into machines in this machine age. Believe it or not!

Mamy of us do know this fact so we are trying to engage, enjoy and we try to break the monotony. Those of us which accepts this fact and are trying to really live our lives are the bravest today.

    I have 2 tablets 1 laptop and a smartphone.

    All of them are tools I use in my writing, communicating and finances.

    If my wife needs something from the store she can text me a list and I’ll get it on the way home from work.

    If I have to stand in line I can read a book, a blog or look up something on the internet.

    And write from anywhere even while sitting on the loo.

    I work so many hours during the week I have no social life and just as the telephone was a lifeline to my housebound grandfather.

    These devices allow be to stay in touch with my fellow poet’s who are my friends and who live all over the world.

    2. There are many other similar devices. Vehicles that we use for transportation, modern day houses which fulfil all our requirements and so on. But these same transportation materials are responsible for pollution, emitting harmful carbon pollutants which can cause chronic illness to humans. The communication devices emit such strong radiations that today’s generation including some of who i.know are facing real life chronic problems like vertigo.
      They are good that is why they were invented but we can’t deny the fact that these are also responsible for man made diseases like cancer.

        Unfortunately that’s how life works: for every upside there is downside. The solution isn’t to condemn the tools we use but to muster the political will to manage the downsides – unintended consequences.
