Mobile media have become popular because of science and technology as the India’s PM Rajiv Gandhi in 1990s paved way for modernization of telephone system along with Sam Pitroda. Yester years we depended on landline as cell or mobile phone came later only as it affords phones in remote areas or locations as the present PM Modi also continues on same lines as for telecom policy is concerned. Finance Minister ArunJaitly moves to construct houses for low caste marginalized people receive admiration from all as only rich or well educated private people afford bungalows. As this and also with mobile phone present government of PM Modi is doing good to everyone concerned.
Mobile phones are popular as we have access to it in a remote location, accessible to all in places land lines do not reach. Mobile phones help communication in and out office lab or any place as instant access is possible, also to distant lands also. Technology has made mobile phone effective medium of communication today as countries as Nigeria stock Samsung or other brands today. As internet has advanced also into mobiles, one can access news, email etc also on hand to carry around.
PM Modi’s policy of empowering women, science technology areas help in mobile proliferation or advancement effectively in many ways. PM Modi is right in taking pride of India and its proud in all areas of society including science, technology and relations with countries as the US. PM Modi is right in saying publics money is safe in government banks as in media recently and help marketing efforts as well.
The new communication innovations, technology as PM modi envisioned as Make in India is working well as poor marginalized are in command as also women as the Defense Minister NirmalaSeetharaman says DRDO had a role to play in Make in India campaign. Mobile telephone a form of new media help in Make in India campaign also very well in many ways effectively.
PM Modi’s move to talk a metro line in New Delhi connecting Noida as a modernization drive is a welcome measure in that modernization is a necessity in India although some African countries as Ethiopia or Nigeria may lack it. Mobile phones also help in modernization, westernization or becoming Indian in all possible ways as today’s economy needs modernization more. Onslaught of older values traditions customs might help in some way but modern devices as Mobile phones make lives better livable and pleasant. It is opposed from punishment of drudgery one needs to avoid as technology takes man further in path of new world order. Today’s 1000 years battles between workers and owners can be fought on platforms as in science or technology only as one is made that way. Science or technology is not darkness or bad to man but help take man to new world order as just as possible free from inequalities or injustices as mobile phone is a right medium. One who is left out of mainstream of any kind can voice his viewsas science or technology has all solutions it can give as mobile phones also help dispel assumptions or rumors effectively.
It was rumored that one who used STD services got sexually transmitted diseases or some Such thing in the past as there is no co-ordination. The society, happenings, caste and others might make such a thing reality in some cases but not proven although it might be a step to deter technology. Mobiles have similar orientations but one can outsmart customs or traditions in a way he is brought up plus combination or use of education he has acquired.
Mobiles usher in information revolution as EM Rogers and ArvindSinghal speak of India’s communication Revolution in their book and it has mobiles as one mentioned. Mobiles have brought world close to India, help education people society or modernity effectively as it is a effective communication medium in today’s India.
