Today is 11th of May and India celebrates this day as the National Technology Day. It was on this day in the year 1998 that India successfully tested Shakti-I nuclear missile at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in Rajasthan. The test happened under the government of Late PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the scientific leadership of late President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. The two stalwarts of Indian political as well as leadership discourse led India to its unprecedented technological advancements. Based on such technological advancements, the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared May 11 as the National Technology Day.
Technology has changed the way we live and learn. While technology can potentially be digressive, if put to use with a purpose and strategy in mind- the very same technology can help you enhance your life and the learning process.

Not only it promotes creative thinking but also gives you an opportunity to put your thoughts out there for others to reflect upon. The feedback you can receive through online blogging has unlimited scope simply because of the reach and audience the modern technology readily provides. Technology very easily gives you a platform through which you can learn, reflect, as well as become a better version of yourself.

Make good use of this and be an active part of the Global society. With less time to physically meet people, improve your social connectivity through technology. Secondly, use the technology to learn and practice various cultures across the world. The real learning isn’t just accessing and consuming new information but also analyzing the same information with new eyes. Modern technology, social media, internet, everything collectively gives you an opportunity to develop that new set of eyes.
