Much better informed but so less awareWe are surrounded by news. Gone are the days when people used to wait for the newspaper vendor in the morning to have a glimpse at the paper with a cup of tea. Old timers still do it because it is much convenient for them, but ask any youngster and they will say there is no need since everything is available online. We are getting every bit of information from all the sources and undoubtedly it is helping us to stay aware, but how much aware we really are?
Take the case of environmental pollution. Use of plastic bags is restricted in many places, especially in markets but whenever people, young and old alike, get a chance they throw it here and there even inside open drains which in turn creates havoc.
With the advent of sophisticated mobile handsets, many young ones are plugging in earphones and keep on walking or cross the roads and all of us know the consequences thereafter. Clicking a selfie is so fashionable that few people have even clicked their last moments with it.
Going by all these things it is most surprising to imagine that we are much better informed but so less aware.
