Do you write letters or send out emails? Do you plough through books in the libraries for information or through a quick click on the internet? Can you find someone without a smartphone, a tablet or a computer around you? Can you imagine being ‘left behind’ by everyone in this ever-advancing world where the advent of technology today is surging through all spheres of life? With technology revolutionizing and transforming the way we live, work and play, who could be spared from the clutches of technology?
