Man and machine

Undoubtedly, gadgets rule our lives. We have become slaves to modern day gadgets. We are entirely dependent on them.

For preparing food, we use wet grinders, mixie, fruit juicer, fridge. For washing clothes and utensils we have washing machines and dishwashers. For recreation, home theatre, television, DVD and CD players fulfil our entertainment needs. For comfort levels, there are air coolers and air conditioners. For communicating, we have computers, mobile phones.

Even money transaction has also been simplified through credit cards, ATMs and online transfers. Tickets too can be booked on the net. What is left for human beings to do other than operating machines?
