Changing Was Never So Easy

Is change really easy? Let me start with the dictionary meanings of words ‘change’ and ‘easy’.

Change [cheynj] –verb
To alter
To modify
Pass from one form to another
To do something different

Easy [ee-zee] –adjective
Not difficult
Done or obtained without much effort
To move something gently and slowly
Now with these meanings in mind, here is my description on the subject. Gadgets – of all things – are the biggest drivers to the change; interestingly, they quite often cause a change. If categorized, gadgets are mainly related to transport, information technology and connectivity. Gadgets available in the past and later describe the change.

1. Transport:

We had bullock-cart and bicycle. The progress led to motor–cycle and car.

We were travelling by public transport buses and trains, now we have helicopters and aeroplanes to travel the longest distance in minutes and hours.

2. Information technology:

I have seen only one Radio in the village used by all in common for hearing news only. Now each home possesses more than one Televisions showing News, politics, sports, share-market, whether report, cooking show, movie and live events with running experts commentary round the clock.

3. Communication:

In past, only way to send a message was to write either post-card, inland letter or envelope and post it, to be delivered within week. The telegram and telephone were second to follow. Connectivity was so poor, one was never sure about talking with a concerned person even in a day. Now mobile technology has made things so dramatic, the past experiences are just history to be remembered. Everybody is nicely connected for-ever (round the clock) due to wireless cellular connectivity.

4. Internet:

Big giant computers, table-top model computers and laptops changed the scenario totally.

With this comparison of past with present day situation as a baseline, we can tell the modern day gadgets are have been begetting the change.

The main change in connectivity is Internet connectivity and portable (small) laptops (lately known as netbooks). Internet connection (via government owned telephone department or by private vendors giving such services) has made the world new… a single unit as much connected as never was. Now everyone has full-time connectivity with close-relatives, friends and anyone in the world at negligible cost.

Online services available make it possible to do shopping, banking, travel ticket – cinema ticket booking, share-purchase/sell, matrimonial moves and expressing oneself possible via blog.

With laptop and internet on, I can send my message via E-mails to number of persons simultaneously, within fraction of seconds and at a quite nominal cost. I find it as nothing else but a great magic of the present day change.

In addition to all said, the internet connectivity gives me exposure to social media Facebook, Twitter, Google, Wikipedia, Youtube and what not!

Facebook is one of the best inventions of the imagination we are having. Here we decide the friends staying anywhere in the world and invite them to join us. Then we can share our emotions, videos and have a chat. This Facebook search has easily changed the life. It is a two way relationship of sharing your information and getting feedback. If not cautious, the Facebook can be addictive and time-consuming as well.

Connections of Youtube, Google search and Wikipedia make our life full of knowledge and information updated.

All these can be better experienced than told or described.

To summarise:
  1. We have easily changed from practically NIL to modern day gadgets and found it to be easy, or say not difficult at all.
  2. All this has made the world one small single unit connected round the clock.
  3. Believe me, not to change is difficult and costly affair in present day scenario. Yes, the change is easy, quick and cost-effective and it is for the betterment of human kingdom.
