Science can be called one of the greatest blessings of this age. We owe all our progress to it. It has brought everyone closer and also made life very comfortable. Today we can go round the globe in a matter of hours. We can also talk to our loved ones across the world by just pushing buttons.
Inventions such as washing machine, refrigerator, air-conditioner, dish-washer, geyser etc. Make our lives very comfortable. Television, Cinema and Compact discs have changed the entertainment industry for ever. Thousands of lives are saved every day due to the progress of medical science. No industry or office can do without computers today. In fact, computers can be called the greatest invention of modern age.
However, science has also brought a lot of misery upon man. It has created diseases such as AIDS and cancer. Nuclear weapons can destroy our planet several times over. Our moral values have also suffered damage. People think nothing less of killing others to further their own interests. Money and power are the new gods. We worship science but use it to destroy our planet and fellow beings.
It is not impossible to remove at least some of the curses of science. We must resolve to use it only to make life batter for man. We must also not pollute our planet or cut trees any more. We must not build any more arms until every man has food on his plate. In this way, we can build a world which will be happier for all of us.
