Nothing better has happened in the history of man than advent of science in human life. Science has helped in reducing the death rate and has also enhanced the living age of humans.The world into which science came was a world of ignorance, suffering and hardship. It is our servant in the home, in the field and in the factory. Gone are the days when only the rich men could afford luxuries. Books, music and all other forms of entertainment have been brought to our door. Science has reduced distance and made travelling a pleasure. Trains roar through deserts, jungles and mountains while aeroplanes fly across thousands of kilometers in a matter of hours.We are better connected to people today and information is only a click of the mouse away.
Every factory is a standing tribute of ease and comfort that science has brought into our life.Science has built great printing presses which produce large number of books at very cheap rates.It has placed at our disposal scores of means to expel ignorance from mankind.But this is by no means the end of the blessings of science.Another job that this servant does for us is to educate us.Electricity helps her in washing and pressing clothes and even in cleaning floors.Science has provided us with computers and machines which have greatly increased our efficiency.Steadily and relentlessly, gunpowder has been used and perfected into a hundred new more destructive weapons so that today artillery, gun fire, shells and bombs have become the hellish terror to everybody.Curiously enough, in the laboratories of different nations, some of the best scientific brains are vying with one another in production of newer weapons of death and destruction.There are electricity-run kitchens in which cooking is a pleasure. No one could be more grateful than the housewife to the science for its blessing.It has given her leisure to take rest, to study and to attend better to her children. Science has taken upon itself the dirtiest of jobs.
