The era in which we all are living today i.e. the 21st century is known as Kalyug. This is the century, which is associated with the advancement of technology and ever growing greed to invent and discover things that would fulfill our desires in the best way possible. The people who are born in this era are said to be always moving and not leading a static and settled life.
In a way it is even true because the life of today’s world is so fast moving that it becomes difficult to stay static, as we all have a greed to experience more. This is specially true in the context of technologies. There was a time, long long ago when the humans had only started to learn how to communicate and understood steadily the working of the environment around them. With passing time, we got to know our surroundings better and started using it for our benefits and advantages, and then a time came when we started developing various types of technology.
The technologies that have been developed for the industrial and corporate sectors are justified, till the point they are used for the advantages of the society as whole. Whereas, developing of technology for the growth of consumerism is what leads the society to a dead end. It is in the human nature to want more and more to satisfy the ever ending greed. Thus, giving way to the growth of consumerism in all the sectors, especially technology.
Going back to the pre-historical stage, it seems impossible in the way the changes are happening in the ever growing economy and politics. As a result,the technology grows with time and with it grows the greediness among the people. Greed for more is always wrong as it leads to the destruction of a person from within. Therefore, whether it was the pre-historic age or the present age, greed always sustains, but in a way pre-historic era was better, because it was the time, when we all were evolving humans in the best way possible.
Whereas now, the best has been surpassed and new challenges are being set and conquered upon, but the greed prevails, be it today or yesterday.
