[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]It is irrefutable that the IT revolution and faster means of travel have affected society at all
levels. However, I disagree that all these effects are negative. The society has also
benefitted enormously from this speeding up of life which in other words we can say
globalization.

At the individual level, we have more choices, more opportunities to travel, better job
prospects and more awareness and tolerance of other cultures. Due to better
communication, people are connected with their near and dear ones and distances are no
longer a barrier. There has been a fall in face-to-face communication but the social network
of friends that the young generation of today has is far more than ever before in the history
of mankind.

At the national level, countries are getting closer and the boundaries are disappearing.
Because of this fast era of today, nations are developing strong bonds doing successful trade
with each other. The rich nations are opening Multi National Companies in developing
countries and thus providing job opportunities to millions. This is narrowing the gap
between the rich and the poor. No doubt the people working in such companies are
underpaid but it is definitely better than being unemployed. Because of this the economies
of the poor countries are improving.

At the global level, nations are joining hands to fight evils such as poverty, disease, terrorism
and global warming. Who has not heard of the Kyoto Protocol. The major feature of the
Kyoto Protocol is that it sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European
community for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions .

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, the accelerating pace of life has both negative
as well as positive effects. However, the positive effects are much more than negative
effects. The speeding up of life in many areas such as travel and communication
