Technology: Boon or Bane

Technology offers many advantages than disadvantages. It has made our life easy, comfortable, simple and luxurious. Technology is supporting human so much that now a person can work from his home. It has helped a lot in uniting people. In fact with the help of internet the world has just turned in to a global village. Technology doesn’t make man. Man makes technology... hence it depends on the use we employ it....Nuclear energy is indeed destructive....However if we use it constructively its great boon.... Rocket Science has many peaceful uses for space exploration & kind. But if harnessed for war purposes it’s bound to be destructive.... Similarly Television & Internet has its own plus & minus side. If human mind tilts towards destructive uses then we can’t take technology itself at fault..... But I feel that this technology is more boon than bane.

Please put your views here.

That said, it has it's downsides. Recently, technological...
