  Science a Blessing or a Curse The modern age is the age of science. The influence of science can be seen in every walk of life. Science has provided us with many wonders. If our ancestors happen to visit the modern world they will not able to recognise it. The world today is completely changed. In a way the world has become a fairy-land as compared with the ancient times. Our food, transport, learning, administration, recreation and social life are all linked with science in various ways. The Contribution of science is seen in our daily life. It has increased the happiness and comforts of human beings greatly. With the inventions of the latest cooking devices, refrigerators, washing machines, etc. the domestic life has  become very easy. Science has also given us fans and air conditioners. With the help of these we can save ourselves from the scorching heat of the sun in summer and keep the rooms warm with the help of room heaters in the winter. Thus our houses are lighted, cooled and heated with the latest scientific gadgets. Electricity is really a great wonder of science. All types of machinery can be lifted and trains can be run with electricity. Science has also made travel very comfortable. There are so many modes of travel available to us. We can travel by railway trains, motor cars, buses or steamers. Aero planes have brought the different countries quite close to each other. Within a few hours we can travel thousands of mile and reach different corners of the world. Thus all the nations of the world have become one family. The bicycles, motor cycles, scooters, shops and the jumbo jets of the twentieth century are the beautiful gifts of science. Science has also revolutionized the methods of communications. We can talk with our friends and relatives thousands of miles away from us with the help of modern scientific devices like telephone, wireless telegraphy and internet. Similarly radio and televisions are those gifts of science which entertain us a lot. Science has also helped mankind to fight against dangerous diseases. Many diseases which were incurable in the past can be cured now. It has also worked wonders in the field of surgery. Even transplantation of hearts and kidneys has   become possible. With the help of X-rays hidden disease in the body of man can be diagnosed easily. Science has also reduced the burden of the workers. The difficult  jobs can be done by machines. Science has helped in increasing the agricultural  production through scientific methods of farming like better seeds, fertilizers,  better implements, etc. It is with the help of science that man has reached the moon and now he is probing other planets like Mars and Venus. But this is only one side of the picture. If in certain respects it has proved a  blessing it has also acted as a curse in certain fields. It has produced highly destructive weapons like atom bombs and hydrogen bombs which can destroy the world in no time. During the Second World War laces of people were killed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki when U.S.A. dropped atom bombs on them in 1945. Science has produced many deadlier weapons and made wars very horrible. If a Third World War takes place in the near future, it might destroy all life on the earth as it will be a nuclear war. Man was never as insecure as he is today. But in reality there is nothing wrong with science. It is up to the man to decide whether he wants to use it for peaceful purses or for destructive purposes. But man should always use science for the promotion of peace and happiness of mankind. It should never be used for war or destructive purposes. It is the duty of modern man to use science for the welfare of humanity.
