Technological progress began in the late 18th century and the 19th century but that brought
about more benefits than harms but the technological progress of the 20th century has
crossed all boundaries that human beings could ever envisage. I definitely agree with the
statement that technological progress has its dark side also despite its stupendous
contribution.

The most significant progress in the 20th century is in the field of Information Technology.
It has brought a revolution in the field of communication. Distances are no longer a barrier
and the whole big planet Earth has become a global village. However, the same technology
when used by terrorists can cause havoc in the life of humans. For example, who has not
heard of the 26th November terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India? All the planning was done
by terrorist with the help of the latest communication technology.

In the field of transport, we have superfast jet planes and international tourism has become
the backbone of many economies of the world, but this has also lead to environmental
pollution and excessive consumption of fossil fuels which is a non-renewable energy
source. It has been rightly said that “Modern technology, owes ecology, an apology.” What
is more, in the quest for an unending source of energy, progress has been made in the field
of nuclear technology but the construction of a nuclear power plant can also cause major
threat to human life if a radiation leak occurred.

Technological progress has left no place untouched. Even in homes, people have the
microwave ovens, dishwashers and washing machines to make life simpler but what is seen
is that people have lost moral values and face to face communication has taken a back seat.
In offices, computers finish work in minutes which earlier took days to complete but it has
been seen that the expectation for work has also risen and men have had to become
workaholics. Automation has made possible mass production but unemployment has also
risen.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, technological progress has both pros and
cons and the onus lies on us to use it for our benefit only otherwise it can become a
boomerang for humanity and ultimately destroy our planet.
