SCIENCE A BOON OR BANE FOR THE SOCIETY
Science may be called a mixed blessing. It has made our life peaceful and comfortable. But it has also filled it with fears and tears. The invention of the wheel, electricity and wonder drug, penicillin has revolutionized human life. Now our life has become safer, easier and more comfortable than that of our ancestors. But now we have conquered time and space and have tamed all the forces of nature. We have, in fact, risen from the lowest position of cavemen to the highest position of spacemen. Every coin has two faces. The same science which has been of such great assistance to mankind has another face. There is a drastic change in the lives we are leading today and that we had 10 years ago. Science has changed the face of the world with great advancements being made in every field. Science which has bestowed us with development, progress, expansion and growth has also brandished us with hostilities, destruction, violence. Science has not only bettered human life but also has posed it into greater risks and challenges. Fears of accident have risen. Environment has been badly polluted with new diseases ever emerging. Computers have replaced manual jobs, leaving millions of workers jobless, With new facilities and services, man has obtained comfort but satisfaction. He is growing lazy and lavish. He has become a slave of technologies. Science has also boosted the brutal aspect of a man. Production of new warfare technology has posed the danger of more devastating wars. The whole world can be destroyed in a few seconds.
