On the Touch of a Button
Who doesn’t like it when their work is reduced and made easy? Does the term “At the touch of a button” sound very close to home? Does easy work sound good to your ears? – Welcome to the age of automation.
In today’s fast paced world, everything from the money vending machine, the teller machine, the rice cooker, sandwich maker, dosa maker, water heater, et al operate on the “Touch of a single button” logic. Youngsters these days are so much used to the automated machines that the conventional methods are under extinction.
With automated machines, one can self-checkin at the airport, treat yourself to a drink at the self -service kiosks, auto scan and pay for your groceries, flash your card at the automated toll gates, cook your food at the touch of a button, do your laundry at the touch of a button, sit at home and order online for all your needs- and what not!
But is this a boon or a bane? On one hand, a machine doesn’t fall sick, take breaks, complaint or get emotional- we don’t have to worry about appraisals too The initial expenses though may be large, savings are quickly realized with better efficiency of the machine and reduction of payroll. Though skills are lost with automation, there is more productivity that is achieved at the end of the day.
On the other hand, there are a lot of people who lose their jobs upon automation. Ideally more jobs should be created with more of infrastructural and technological developments, but with such an expanse of automation, manpower labor has greatly reduced and been replaced by machines.
A world of automation is a boon to the youngsters of today wherein they can meet the demands of everyday work and also keep up on track just at the touch of a button!!
