The growing technologies are definitely making the world a global village. But at the same time there are areas still as backward as they’ve been some hundred years. Not going too far, but here within our IT sector: we develop latest software to meet the growing demand of the highly industrialized states, but at the same time a huge number of our people don’t have access over basic technical education. While having a discussion with one of an IT specialist we’ve come up with some innovations within technology, whereby industries are going on web and reaching the targeted customers. For instance, let’s take the Semantic Web technology, i.e. I’m looking for Texas apartments, and had an email conversation with a friend regarding this, and that conversation shows me some related search results within it. You might have noticed it using your gmail ids. Well, this is the one end of technology we’re getting benefited from, but the other end along with some other non technical parameters is not letting a common man have his basic needs fulfilled. Or in other way, these are the facilities we’re availing, but the speed with which economies are getting worse for a common man, I don’t see the maximum utilization of all the structural development (claimed) we’re doing. Not a pessimistic thought, but the negativity lies somewhere.
