Science in the service of man

Outline: 1. Introduction, 2. Human happiness (Trains, planes, telephone, etc.-electricity, machine, diseases controlled), 3. Conclusion. Introduction: Ours is the age of science. It has done much for us. It has made rapid progress in the modern age. It has changed our ways of living and thinking. It has curtailed space and time. There is no sphere of life where science has not influenced us. Today the world is not what it was fifty years ago. Human Happiness: Science leads us to comfort and happiness. It has given us electricity. Which is very useful in our daily life? It does a lot of useful works and serves us in many ways. Science has greatly increased human happiness. It has conquered distance. It has made traveling very comfortable. Telephones and telegrams are a source of convenience and ease. Radio, transistor and television are a source of recreation. They give us current news of the world. They enhance our knowledge. Machines have saved us from unnecessary toil. They have saved our time and energy. They do all kinds of work for us. The work that was used to be done by hand in the past is now being done by machines. Agriculture has undergone a radical change. Scientists have lessened human pain and misery by inventing X-rays, radium, sulfa drugs and plastic surgery. There is hardly any disease for which effective drug has not been found out. It is no longer necessary to suffer the pangs of diseases for a very long time. Conclusion: Thus it is now clear that wonderful and effective inventions in medicine and surgery have made human life healthier and happier than before. Inventions in the field of transport and communication have helped mankind a lot. So Mr. A.K. Smith writes, "In the sky above, on the earth below and down to the ocean has gone the triumphant car of science."
