Running Short Of TIme...What We Are Upto!!!!!I do find a huge differences whenever I go for a comparison within the existing technologies in those periods.
In terms of transportation & in terms of the means Communication, we can see a lot of changes which is evident in our locality as well. We never had the mobiles so commonly used during our childhood days that now many of us carrying two mobile phones even branded one. With this & including the Internet & the Laptops & the computers that information takes few seconds to reach to anywhere in this world.
Similarly, the traditional transports were the bullock cart which has been replaced by the fast & powerful moving engines. When earlier even few kilometers would take few hours but now & with the technology we can around the world & can come back to the origin the next day. So much has elapsed during this. That we are getting faster & faster but still running short of time. What we are up to. It's always something missing & we don't know what but continuously wanting for more. Still unsatisfied & thirsty. We have achieved a milestone & another one ready to take over.
Everyone would have heard of Steve Jobs. According to him,
"I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others' eyes, my life is an epitome of success. At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death. In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…..?"
