But, in today’s time of worldwide crisis, technology is proving its objectives the most without a second thought. Thanks to the technology many industries are still being able to operate and continue their productivity even after the huge hit of pandemic COVID-19.
With the technology, the human species have stepped on the moon what they only thought as a God of the mythical world in ancient times. Likewise, they are unfolding the mysteries of the sun, solar system, and the whole universe one by one. Not only these but also each and every matter present around us is being unfolded with the use of technology. And without a doubt, technology and science will help us to overcome this crisis too.
Though we should remember that technology has negative effects also like any other thing. Now it depends on us how we use it. If we use it with positive intentions then it has the ability to take our civilization to its highest peak. But, if we use it in a negative way then it can destroy us. So, it is up to us what we choose to do with it.
Here I am going to discuss how technology is changing our lives in positive ways through some examples and facts.
