This is the age of science. Science has changed the entire world. It is not the same in which our ancestors lived. If they were to return now to the earth, they would not recognise it.
Science has made our life more comfortable, beautiful and trouble-free. The blessings of science are too many to count. Science has conquered time and distance.
Very fast means of communication and transport have made the world smaller. Telephone, radio, television, aeroplane etc. are some of these.
Electricity is another wonderful gift of science. Its uses are unlimited. It lights our houses, shops and streets. It runs our factories and trains. It runs our coolers and air-conditioners’ in summer and keeps us warm in winter.
Science has given us wonderful medicines. It has conquered epidemics. Now even brain can be operated upon and many vital organs transplanted. Now we live a longer and healthier life.
Travelling is now so safe, comfortable and fast. We have cars, buses, trains, ships and aeroplanes.
Then there are space ships. We can now reach other planets. In the fields of agriculture, education and entertainment, science has proved a great blessing. It has given us many wonderful inventions.
