Yes, the time is positively saved, but I have noticed that most professionals, more so in the IT sector, who hardly find any time, spend one hour on weekends -- mostly on Sundays -- to pay all the bills.
In cities like Chennai, where a variety of home cooked food is now available online, all that the wife needs to do is to cook some rice with the help of the pressure cooker, which itself does not take time. The time is usefully spent on homework of children, even encouraging them on their special talents like singing, visiting the temple in the evening and so on. The home cook food is served to so many customers and the taste is similar to what the lady would have made, had she cooked. This is particularly true of vegetarian food.
So, time is positively saved through use of advanced technology. Through the unreserved ticket booking app, one gets to book tickets on local express trains ( for travel up to one hundred kilometers) and one can happily hop into the train, when hundreds slog it out to purchase their tickets from counters.
Likewise, even getting servant maids, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and a host of other service people, is so easy. In fact, there are dry cleaning professionals, who do the washing, drying and the ironing of clothes and do the door delivery as well. This saves huge time for the couple who are employed and get very good salaries. They do not mind spending that little extra for all their needs. Ticket booking for a movie, in one of the malls, at Rs.150 per ticket, is no big deal. So is the use of the car, as the distance traveled is very less.
Modern gadgets with IT enabled services are a boon to the modern professionals.
