SCIENCE : USES & ABUSES
Everything in the universe has its uses and abuses. The same applies to science. Science has revolutionized the
human existence. Itwill make mans life happier and more comfortable if it is used in a right way.
Electricity is one of the greatest wonders of modern science. It is a source of energy. It can run any type of machinery.
With the help of electricity, we can light our rooms, run buses and trains, and lift water for irrigation. All this has facilitated the
growth of fast modes of transport and communication, which in turn has changed the world into aglobal village. Science has
given man the means of traveling-cars, trains, aeroplanes, ships etc. man has even traveled to the moon.Science is a help in
the agriculture field too. The food production levels and quality have improved by multiple factors. Soil analysis, hybrid
varieties of crops giving higher yield, fertilizers, pesticides, advanced tools and machinery, irrigation equipments, etc. have
increased the production of crops.Today, we have scores of meteorological satellites in outer space sending data, pictures to
earth stations helping agriculture scientists find and analyze soil patterns. They also help them trace progress of rains, winds
and even locusts that endanger crops.Satellites even forewarn about natural calamities, like hurricanes which cause mass
destruction.Science has provided us with many means of education and entertainment. The television, video, radio, computer,
internet etc. have enabledthe human race to enrich its knowledge about various places, persons, birds, animals etc. Information
technology and computers have revolutionized our life-styles. Automation in banks and railway stations have provided relief to
the public and staff alike. Ticketing and reservation have become more efficient and convenient. In medical diagnosis, computers
are being used to locate and investigate accurately and precisely any abnormalities ordiseases. Internet has some very
useful applications in our day-to-day life. Mobile phones are outcome of information technology .
But at the same time it cannot be denied that the boon in many cases Guns, revolvers, tanks and fighter planes,
explosives, nuclear bombs etc. were invented to develop a strong security system to protect the innocent masses, but their
misuse is now crushing humanity. Apart from atomic weapons, man has also started stockpiling biological and chemical
weapons. These weapons are also extremely dangerous.Biotechnology is a great boon for fighting the diseases. But along
with medicines lethal biological weapons have also been developed. Germs are deliberately released into the air to
spreaddiseases. Anthrax envelopes are used for spreading terrorism.The negative effects of the excessive use of fertilizers
and pesticides, used to increase yield, are now evident. soil salinity has increased. Traces of DDT are found in
plants.Establishment and expansion of factories has resulted in all round pollution. Motor vehicles emit a lot of poisonous
material into the atmosphere. This has led to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming.Television, a good source
of entertainment, education and information, has its negative effects too. There are many programmes which promote violence
and vulgarity, and teenagers are more interested in watching these programmes. Aggressiveness and violence at an early
age have lead to shocking crimes. Sometimes, even the nature people learn and apply different methods of crime by watching
serials and movies.The power of the internet is being abused by the widespread use of pornographic material. Lots of people
spend their time in chat rooms for obscene discussions.
Science has two faces-good and bad. It depends on us which face we want to see. If we use the gifts of science in
positive direction with positive intention then it will provide us with sweet results but if we use it in the wrong way the results will
definitely be bitter. To save ourselves and the world as a whole from destruction, we should follow the right way to use the gifts
of science so that it appears as a blessing and not as a curse.
