  1. Technology may be boon or ban.Its all in our hands.What to use and What not to use.There should be limit for usage.According to my view technology made me some more knowledgeable person than before.

  2. According to me Digital revolution is good ,our life is getting very easier but those are uneducated people they have been suffering, they don’t know how to take the facility.It requires awareness and education.Childrens are getting vulnerable, cyber crime has been increased.Govt has to set up strong team they will combat cyber crime otherwise innocent people will be victimised . Many peoples are getting jobless especially those are unskilled but those are skilled professionals they have more opportunities.So Govt has to take care of the rural areas people for their education .As long as everyone will not be able to take the facility it will not make it successful fully.
