In today’s scenario, we/people run behind technology and always trusts technology more than themselves. Even though the technique is useful we should also see the disadvantages in it, we blindly trust our technology and then blame them for all the negativities that happened to you. To be honest I think we have to blame ourselves for the damages or negativities that we had done for ourselves instead of blaming technology, this is because even though technology has both boon and bane but its according to the usage of one, if you ask me I can tell that ”Technology is a mirror”, if you use it for useful purposes then it will give you back positive energy or impacts, if you use it for harmful purposes then it will definitely give you negative impact.
