Science": the word conjures up images of microscopes, telescopes, test tubes, pipettes, dissections, apples falling from trees (Newton's laws of gravity), rockets, space ships, computers, internet, dams, clean water, clean environment, in short, everything connected with life and living.Science has changed the way in which we breathe, live and think. It has entered each and every arena of our lives and changed it beyond comprehensible limits. Though science has been in existence since times immemorial, today, it is accessible to the common man and has influenced every aspect of life. Children start learning about science the minute they enter school.In my case, it has made me a more curious, eager- to- learn, analytical person. I do not accept things blindly. I have been inculcated with a scientific spirit in my thinking. I want to experiment, learn new things, maybe discover a few things too, and harness it in every way I can. The immediate changes that I can think of are the results of experiments we perform in school, use of internet for communication, use of mobile phones, sending text messages, online fund transfers, online shopping, writing blogs, use of sophisticated machines for simple comforts of life, etc, etc.Development in technology has changed our lives in a big way. While a few years ago, I would have traveled to nearby places for a holiday; today, travel by modified cars and airplanes to far off destinations is just a click away.
