A better picture of Indian villager to the world?
Mahatma Gandhi had the vision of uplifting quality of lives of millions living in rural India. (Seventy percent of population of India lives in villages).
This he said can only be achieved by bringing appropriate technology and developments to the countless villages of this vast nation. Now our underprivileged fellow beings also can enjoy quality life as it is available in the developed countries. The effect of modern technology on Indian villages has been left in a very remarkable manner in different spheres of life.
Appropriate technology has to be used in all areas of life including health sector. An example of this “appropriate technology” usage can be seen in a sleep apnea patient from a village.
The transfer of capital-intensive technology from industrialized nations to developing countries may be criticized by some, but it changes the quality of life of many poor patients in the villages.
The past few decades have witnessed a radical change and transformation in the scene of an Indian village in some ways for the better and in other ways for the worse. The main catalyst responsible for this change has been the fast and speedy advent of modern technology in our country.
The standard of living of an average Indian villager has risen, and he is now even able to afford to buy an imported CPAP machine from the west.
