Science in the service of man


We live in the age of science. science has entered every field of life. It has added many comforts to our life. The impossibilities of the past have been made possible. New miracles are happening everyday. It has given man a new seance of confidence and power. Man has conquered the force of nature. It has helped man to explore the hidden treasures of the earth. Man has now learnt to land on the moon. He is in search of new worlds. A great writer Emerson says ❝ Science surpasses the old miracles of mythology ❞.

Science has brought a revolution in the matter of transportation and communication. It has shortened the distance. In the past, travelling was a difficult and dangerous matter. It took weeks and months to reach from one place to another. People bade farewell to their relatives and friends with a heavy heart , while they set out on a journey. Now those days have gone. We can now travel from one part of the world to the other in a few hours. There are rocket planes that travel at the speed of seven or eight hundred miles per hour. They travel faster than sound.

Telephone, Wireless, Radio, and Television and Computer are a wonderful inventions of science. They connect us with the world within the twinkling of an eye. The radio and T.V are the most powerful means of information and education for us. They make a record of everything which happen in the world. T.V., with its plays, entertaining features and educational programs enlightens and delight us. Its influence on men, women and children stand undefeated. Massages are flashed. Direct conversation can be carried on. Internet has brought the countries close together. The world has shrunk in size. science has established and strengthened the bonds of friendship and love between the people of different countries. It is no doubt a great service of science.

Electricity is perhaps the most wonderful invention of science. It is used as a source of light, heat and power. With the help of power, we can now change the course of rivers, level the mountain and cultivate our barren lands. Without it, the whole progress of industry would come to a stand still. Had it not been invented, the entire world would have plunged into darkness. It moves trains and trams. It heats our rooms in winter and cools them in summer. It cools our food and iron our clothes.

It has also done wonders in the world of medicine. Treatment by X-ray and radiation is one of the greatest wonder of science. Difficult surgical operations have become a routine matter. Vaccination has made small pox a thing of past. Many other diseases like cholera, plague and T.B have been fully controlled. Quinine has finished malaria.

Science has made us open minded and rational. We analyse everything before we believe it. We do not have faith in ghosts and spirits. Now-a-days science has made us practical minded.
