In this day and age, mobile phones have quickly become more of a necessity than a luxurious accessory. Ever since the release of the first ever bulky cellular phone device (thanks to Dr.Martin Cooper of Motorola – who invented the very first modern-age mobile telephone device), cell phones have now become our day to day companion, which are sleeker and handier in terms of size and functions. Staying in touch with our family, friends, and office colleagues has never been this easy and speedy!
But more than a text and talk gadget, how did cell phones revolutionize the way people connect, socialize, interact, or even live and work?
A pocket-full of amenities rolled into one
If there is one single adjective that best describes today’s mobile phone, it is “multipurpose”. With the countless tricks and things that we can now do using but a pocket-sized computing unit, it is simply a pleasant showcase of versatility. Mobile phones in the past could only allow you to place or receive calls or send SMS messages.
But these days, your smartphone can serve virtually all of your communication needs locally and internationally! And not just by simply talking to someone via voice data. You can now also send and receive emails, access all sorts of information via the Web, watch movies, listen to music, and utilize all the other media platforms that you can easily perform using your mobile. Not to mention tons of existing (and still to come) phone apps these days. And you can literally do all that anytime, anywhere.
The other side of the coin may not be as good
The significance of cell phones in today’s living is indisputable. Immense (and maybe still unknown) changes that this cool piece of invention may bring in the future may also be unstoppable. For now we could only hope that this brings people in the world closer and closer in the most positive way.

Women around the world are helping in the development of their nation. In the progressed parts of the world women now have same rights as men. They work day and night tirelessly to help make their identities strong, which in turn makes their lives and by extension their nations strong. In the developed countries many initiatives are taken to empower women to help them build their identities as individual personalities so that they can be known by their own names. And so they are not condescended by their fathers, brothers, husbands or in some cases sons.
While women of the modern world are playing their parts in leading their nations to prosperity, women in Asian still remain enslaved and powerless. Totally dependent on the men of their tribes, they are still deprived off their basic human rights. They are at home moms, slaves, and this is not where it ends, they are subjected to violence and misbehaviour, they do not have any rights whatsoever. This is a major setback for countries such as India, Bangladesh, Rwanda, Pakistan and even China. A nation which doesn’t let half of its population to contribute towards its development, what hope does it have for any progress? Asian governments should pay attention to women rights. While gender discrimination is known to be a major issue in Africa, women in Asia are completely alienated from making important decisions as well.
And it’s time we do something about it.
The world is suffering from an evil of poverty. Sure, there are progressed nations in the world but the majority of the world population remains poor. About three quarters of the world’s population lives below the rate of poverty.
Underdeveloped countries that are facing this evil are having a hard time trying to survive. South Korea is one of these regions, and even though it’s not one of the least developed countries, it has to face difficulties due to extreme climate changes.
South Korea is located around 43. north latitude and has four distinct seasons, but the winters are extreme and very long due to cold winds from Siberia and Manchuria. The severe winters cause rivers to freeze over for three to four months and snowfall to lie for long periods of time. Korean people have to fight for their survival.
Due to these severe winters the water freezes over and people have difficulty doing their daily chores. Bathing water and drinking water has to be heated over stoves, the Koreans do not have the facilities of centrally heated water like other developed countries in winters. Farmers have difficulty feeding and washing up after their cattle.
Is there something to be done about this problem? It seems so, but I’ll leave that for another post.
