This is the age of electronics, from mobile phones, DVD players, LCD televisions to laptops, microwave ovens, hitech air-conditioners, i-pods to pen-drives. They have all made life easy and comfortable .

They now occupy a prominent place in our lives. The cheap and easily accessible digital storage allows us to electronically record and store information, exchange the same and interact with people across the globe. The photographer's films and dark rooms are replaced with digital cameras and mouse. Plastic money (i.e credit and debit cards) have replaced chunks of transactions and also reduced the risk of carrying large amounts of money. Gadgets are definitely a boon as long as they are our slaves. They start ruling us only when we let it become our master.

Ramalakshmi,

Madurai.
