Knowledge is power.
With the development of science and technology, the scopes of learning have increased manifold and as Dr. Rao has rightly said, the children of today can get every information by browsing the internet on their laptops or smartphones while we had to struggle hard to collect them.
But as there is no end of knowledge, there is no age of learning also. Those who are really interested to acquire knowledge, can easily do so by learning the use of those gadgets and you must admit that most of us are already doing so.
It is true that many of us have crossed the age of competing with the present generation but there is no harm in enhancing our knowledge bank for our self-satisfaction.
Every day is a new day for learning something new.
Do what inspires you !!
