Human civilization has changed and developed from the time it took its birth many centuries back.
From the time the first human appeared on this earth till today in the 21st century there have been changes almost everywhere in our life.
This could be the different modern technology, standard of living, methods of working and many other aspects of life.
Today when we have things easily available for us and even the way our work is done easily, have we ever thought how the humans who came on this earth first managed to survive when nothing was easily available?
Very few people will take their time out from the busy schedule and ponder on such things. Well, if we have not thought even once then we should do it.
When humans first came on this earth, they did not have anything. They did not have clothes to wear, food to eat or a place to live in.
They used to cover themselves by cutting the leaves from the plants which were present around them. They would walk here and there in search of food.
Some of the plants and trees had fruits in them. So, in order to survive and fill their stomach they used to pluck the fruits from these trees.
At night they would stay in the open jungle and sleep there itself just like that. They slept in the forest itself because they did not have any place which would give them shelter.
Slowly, they started experimenting new things. They invented fire by striking two stones.
After that they cut the branches from the trees and light them so that they would feel safe at night by chance if any animal would come there and attack them.
After that they started learning to make use of the branches and whatever metal they found around them. They tried making new tools to attack the animals and cultivate the land.
They created new things. But they had to struggle a lot. This sort of struggle is not there today. The methods to do different work all of them have experienced changes and are modernized.
Even the people in the villages or the ones who work in the fields and cultivate the lands, they used different tools and methods which make their work easier.
We will never be able to understand the struggle people of those days have gone through. Even if one wants to know and understand the struggle those people went through, one should go to such a place where nothing is available.
The place can be desert, empty land or land full of plants and trees. They need to leave away all their modern tools behind and go to that place.
They should even leave their phones or any sort of tool which will help them to remain connected with the modern world. They should do things from starting just like how the first humans did.
But the people of today know how to make use of the stones, branches and leaves. So, it will not be a problem for them.
After the first humans learnt to make new things, they created many things. Then these things went through many changes.
In order to compete with these things people made similar products or machines with better factors and features. The competition to produce things led the invention of many other new things.
This has been a continuous process. Every single day there is some sort of development in the existing products, things or technology or production of something new.
This is the reason why we have so many options of everything. Be it school, office, college, food, technology, daily products; every single thing has a wide range of options to choose.
All works have become easier, whether it is at home, educational institutions, agricultural fields, industries etc. Every single place has developed. Even the transport system has improved.
Earlier if people wanted to tell something to another person, they would have to walk miles to travel to their place and give them information. After in order to communicate, the method of writing letter came into existence.
People used to write letters to others. But even this postal system took a lot of time. After this telephone came to light and then the mobile phones.
No matter the other person stays near and or very far, they are always connected with the help of telephone and mobile phones.
After a few years internet connection came into existence and the method of sending emails and messages came into existence.
After that the services of the mobile phones and internet connection was improved and today people can see each other even they are kilometers away or are in different time zones.
This has been made possible by bringing the concept of video calling with the help of ungraded services of mobile phones and internet connection.
Even the transport system has improved. We get buses, cars, trains and flights easily available as per our comfortability and capacity to enjoy their services.
Due to the improvement in the transport services we can reach other places in a short duration of time. Even at our homes whatever things we used have changed.
For example, the invention of gas stoves, chimney, water purifiers, mixer grinders, air conditioner, fans, lights, television connection; all of these had made man’s life very comfortable.
The modern things have made people to stay in connected with each other for the entire twenty four hours.
Even in hospitals new technologies and machines are used for treatment, ultrasound, x-rays and reports.
Now in most of the educational institutions and different working organizations, intercom is placed. With the help of this intercom the students, staff and the employees get information whenever needed.
When intercom was not there the non teaching staff in an educational institution had to personally go the teachers or every classroom to give any information passed by the Principal.
This was the same in the working organization as well. Related to food as well, things have become advanced.
Ready made food is easily available. Not only this, the methods to cook food has also developed greatly. The life of humans has become comfortable and easy.
Yes, man has become dependent on machines. Due to this the lives of humans have become comfortable and the leisure time is more on focus.
At the present day everything works according to the machine. The machines have become a benefit. Manpower has reduced a lot compared to before.
This is because the machines save time by working faster than the manpower. This is why in many places employment has reduced to a great extent.
It is because the difference between the products produced by machines and what man produces is huge. Machine can make more things in a day compared to man.
Not only this because of the modern day machines, man has become lazy.
We cannot see hard work among today’s humans as maximum of the work is done by the machines. The minimum of the work is done by the man himself.
Machines have become a boon for us but have been a curse as well. Man cannot do anything without the help of machines.
From getting up in the morning to sleeping at night, the entire day runs only with the help of machines. Due to the modern day machines and technologies people are always busy with something or the other, whether it is at work or their own personal time.
Earlier people used to wake up on their own listening to the chirping of bird and hen’s morning sound but today maximum of them are dependent on alarm clock to wake up on time.
In order to save time people use new tools and technologies to cook food. Man has become a prisoner in the hands of the machines.
This is why there is nothing interesting going on in the life of the humans. Every day goes the same way like the previous day.
It is the same repetitive life. Machine has made man to become more materialistic. This is why humans compete with each other.
This competition further results in disputes. As in the present day the world is becoming more industrialized the other things are becoming less important.
Yes, progress is important but it should take away the life of man that they only depend on the machines and become a prisoner to the machine.
They can take help from the machines but they should learn to do the work by themselves as well. One should learn to balance between the two.
