Earlier people couldn’t leave without three things that are air, food and shelter. But in today’s advanced generation we have added another necessity to our busy life which is none other than digital devices. Everyone would agree unquestionably that a person uses digital devices on an average minimum of 3 to 4 hours per day. Thus it wouldn’t be wrong if I say that we have become dependent and attached to them such that we can’t even think of spending a single day without them. Once we open the devices like mobile we just go on using forgetting everything around us. We know that everything has its advantage and disadvantage. Let’s have a look at the pros and cons of these digital devices.
Invention of these digital devices revolutionized the whole world. It became the talk of the town all over the world. Wireless Communication was just the beginning. Tablets, laptops changed the people’s point of view. Our lives became easier and smarter thanks to the invention of the digital devices. Now the people are digitizing everything.People are already replacing heavy books with tablets. Before, the people used to send postcards for communication but now it is totally overwhelmed by e-mails, also people can talk on phone from far away.Like this the list just goes on and on.
As everyone knows, where there is advantage there are also disadvantages. These digital devices have their own share. Some people have become so attached that they forget about the real world and stay in their own virtual world. For example, children during their summer vacations just sit in the house and play in their PC and PS for hours instead of going out and playing. This harms the children’s eyes and gives them pale stressed look. Researchers have proved that long continuous exposure to the digital devices harms the people in many ways and are disastrous. There have also been cases of fatal accidents due to negligence of surroundings while using the devices.
Thus I would like to say that while we use the devices for our comfortableness we should consider its harmful effects and limits its use. Overuse of anything leads to its own destruction. A product which has more disadvantages than advantage is not called boon but a curse. Thus it’s the responsibility of every citizen to check the use of devices and not let them turn into a curse.
