In this episode of the Subhash Chandra Show that was held at the century old educational institute in Panipat, Subhashji discusses with the students about technology and if it is a boon or a bane. The topic is important because of the way in which technology has taken a strong hold in all paths of life, if it is communication between people separated by thousands of miles or it is making payments for even the smallest of things or travelling from one place to another. But that gives rise to a bigger question which is, if technology has impeded the growth of human relationships and human interaction?
Listing the advantages and the disadvantages of using technology in everyday life with the students of Arya PG College of Panipat, Subhashji says that we are excessively dependent on technology now days. “Science has done a lot for the human race in general but nothing for us individually. You are the subject and the world around you is the object. Each of us has different thinking and different talents.”
He tells the students that we should not let technology overpower us and use it according to our needs. Subhashji feels that excessive use of technology has created a rift in families and hampered our relationships. However, at the same time technology has helped in the development of the world. A right balance needs to be maintained as human beings have started being dependent on technology, and as a result individual development is getting hampered.
The first special guest on the show is change-maker Shri Rakesh Verma, from Panipat who is helping the common man with the help of technology. After his brother was murdered in 2007, Rakesh Verma started an organisation named ‘JAI HIND ATI CORRUPTION SOCIAL’, which helps the common man in voicing out their problems by filing petitions and online complaints. On the other hand, there was another motivational speaker, 26 year old entrepreneur Shri Saket Modi, CEO and Founder of Lucideus, an online cyber security company. Having a technology background, Saketji explained to the students the right meaning of technology and urged them to use technology in an intelligent manner.
