The wonders and blessings or
modern science
Introduction: The age we live in is
an age of science indeed. Wherever
we look-land, water and air we can
see the gifts or blessings of science.
Science has made our life easy and
comfortable. Everywhere we can see
the glorification of science.
Wonders of science: Science, in its
rapid progress, goes on creating
wonder after wonder. In fact, the
wonders of modern science are too
many to describe here.
Electricity is the first wonder of
modern science. It is a great source
of power and energy. It has brought
about a great change in man’s life.
Modern civilization is unconcealed
without electricity. Mobile or
Telephone is another wonder of
modern science. It helps a man to
talk with any one sitting in any
corner of the wonder. Wireless or
radio is another great wonder of
modern science. It has made us
possible to hear the human voice
from any part of the world. Another
one of the greatest wonder of the
modern science is Television. It
enables us to see and enjoy events,
scenes, plays or any other thing
sitting in our drawing room
thousands of miles away.
Again, the invention of radar is
another wonder of modern science.
It helps us to detect the
advancement of ships, planes and
the likes. Recently the invention of
Rocket is also a wonder of science.
It has made space travel easy. With
its helps today man can fly
anywhere even to a moon. Nuclear
energy is, perhaps, the most
wonderful of all the achievements of
modern science. It has made
possible in making atom bomb,
hydrogen bomb and the missiles.
Besides these, Computer, internet,
X-ray’s, ECG, Radio Therapy etc are
the wonders of modern science too.
Its uses: The uses of modern
science can be seen and felt in
everyday life and everywhere in the
world. In mills and factories,
industries, agricultural, medical,
transport communication everywhere
we can see the uses of modern
science. Modern civilization would
come to a standstill it there was no
electricity. Life would face its
extreme crises if the modern
amenities of life are neglected.
Agricultural and industrial
development has been possible
because of modern science. In fact
we cannot live or do without
Abuses: Nothing is of unmixed
blessing. By the invention of Atom
bomb, hydrogen bomb, missiles,
explosives men may efface the
human race and its beautiful
creation in the world. Atom bomb
used in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in
World War II has buried the 2
populous and prosperous cities of
Japan in no time. The use of
Hydrogen bomb may bring the total
destruction of a country and a
nation in t he twinkle of an eye.
Conclusion: In fact, we hardly know
much we owe to science in the daily
affairs of our life. Life without
modern science cannot be
conceived today. Modern science is
like Aladdin’s lamp. It does not what
was supposed to be impossible
yesterday. Where it will end nobody
can say, but this much can be
impossible yesterday. Where it will
end nobody can say, but this much
can be said that it will go on
working and creating much more
wonders in the days to come.
