Technology has become as essential to us as the air we breathe and the water we drink. The more advanced technology becomes, the more integrated it gets into our daily lives. Even though the amalgamation of our creativity and necessity gives birth to technology, it has often been seen as an obstacle to the further development of human capacity for thought.
However, those who believe in the sanctity of such a perspective end up relying on electronic devices and virtual intelligence instead of racking their brains. Whereas those who strive to prove it false employ complete human creativity.
Is Only Technology Enough
In our world, having such complete technological or non-technological inclinations is no longer sufficient for intellectual development and consequent success. Therefore, electronic tools must be utilized not as a substitute but as a supplement to human instincts and creativity.
The dichotomy of technology and imagination is crucial to any content marketer due to the two-way effect on one another. On the one hand, imagination directs the inception and further development of any form of mechanics; on the other, these innovations also enhance our creativity and enable easy application.
1. India & Technology
In a society like India, these dialectical concepts create a parallel between the modern and the traditional, as was seen in the recent elections.
During the Lok Sabha elections of 2014, it was visible how Prime Minister Narendra Modi focused on incorporating India’s traditions into his speeches as a weapon to entice the public, his right-hand man, Amit Shah, broadcasted them to various rural areas with the use of hologram technology.
This conjunction of creativity and technology ensured a historic victory for the NDA and brought about an innovative approach to election campaigns that are both efficient and attractive.
2. Changing Society
Hence, technology is an invaluable tool that is a product of the ever-growing human abilities and can transform our society’s image. For instance, government schools in the far-off parts of the country face significant problems due to the lack of teachers willing to go to such places.
Therefore, if technology is well thought about, we can install a single computer system for the entire village and impart knowledge using free video messengers like Skype. This would help increase the country’s literacy level and introduce such children to how far the world has come in terms of development so that they can dream bigger.
Similarly, many smartphone apps aim to create a safer environment for women, some even attempt to make the Indian farmer more aware and self-reliant.
It is time that we stopped clinging to pure abilities that do nothing but restrict our intellectual growth.
Let’s take a positive step toward technology and make it a real extension of the human mind for a better future.
