Technology without which we can’t live

By Hafsa Sarfraz

In this day and age everyone uses technology in some way, shape or form to make life easier. For most people technology is not something we give a second thought to but some people literally can’t live without it and I am not being dramatic. For some people the existence of technology is the difference between silence and laughter, loneliness and interaction and even life and death.



Can we live without a technology? Of course our initial response to this question would be that naturally we could live without the technology. After all the human race has been around for thousands of years without it and have lived long enough to last up to the invention of technology.


Our lives are intricately entwined with technology rather than with twigs. It seems that through some sort of Bruce apocalypse, if technology were to disappear, you wonder what state would we be in? I would have to say some of us, the outdoor rugged grizzly Adam types, would survive in some manner however, quite a lot of us would simply perish. This is because without technology we just would not be able to look after ourselves.


Yet the native population who didn’t have technology, lived on the exact same land for thousands of years and managed to survive and get fat! They had culture, arts and craft. It is technology which has made us what we are today and if that technology was to disappear then I would say that so would we. Some of us may survive but we would not be living in the sense that we call living now.


Today we are modern people and we know more about technology. If technology did not exist, today in our house, no computer, no telephone nor mobile phone! What would have happened? I thank those who have said yes that technology is better and those who have said no, please think again on this matter.

    Dear author: What a silly Colomn! Can’t you write a better one than this junior high school level essay. Peace be with you!

    Hafsa, a nice little piece and rather thought provoking. Pay no attention to kamath sahib who seems to be jealous. 🙂

    Yes: my sincere apologies. I shouldn’t have been that critical about the author’s writing. It is simply impolite to launch such remarks.

    You are right at times I am jealous of young writers’ thought provoking essays.

    I am sorry., Peace
