Today each & every person right from the bhajiwala to school children carries a mobile phone. If you don’t have it then it becomes a TOPIC for chitchat. So today’s generation is MOBIOLIC similar to WORKAHOLIC, ALCOHOLIC word.
Listen guys, I am not blaming you at all for this, as technology always differs from generation to generation. We all are now mobile dependent. I mean, earlier human required only air, food, water and shelter for their better living but now one more component that is Mobile phones are also added to the list.
The biggest craze of mobiles is seen in college going students. All are just competing in the brands of mobile they carry. Sorry Sorry Not mobile, it’s a Smart phone now. Apple iphone, Samsung Note 3, 8, Vivo, LG and so on. Some of you don’t know even differences in those. All are having same apps, same functions. Anyways, you can say a bit of technology behind the person, But no need to bother.
Social media circle
You must be having twitter, facebook, WhatsApp account. Students are becoming smarter by using smart phones. But at the same time, they are getting addicted to social sites, chatting, liking, posting, sharing on social sites. You are in student phase, so your main aim should be to study hard, be on the right track of life. Because of this addiction, you may suffer some mobile phone syndromes leading to anxiety, frustration, headache, eyesight problems, neural problems even radiations from mobiles can cause cancer and infertility.
Any thing in excess creates madness.
Genuine use, Limited use
I am not saying just throwing away your mobile is the only solution. Instead of that just use it in a limit. While eating, eat properly. While studying, concentrate on it only, while chilling out with friends, family, do the fullest enjoyment. Likewise while using mobile, use it PROPERLY without any obsession.
SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY is CONSTRUCTIVE as well as DESTRUCTIVE, it is a blessing as well as curse. What to choose depends on us, like we only plant the trees and we only cut off the trees.
BEST technology and ESSENTIAL tool
If you use it properly then mobiles are such an informative tool that it is quickest and easiest way to access the knowledge. When it comes to biotechnology then you are really blessed. Whether you want to do calculations in the laboratory or you want to take images of the samples, mobile is an essential thing now,
If you are a bioscience student we refer a lot of books, some of the international books are very costly, so even colleges don’t have the availability of those. So you can download ebooks available from different apps or download from google.
We do different academic projects in college during which we can take beautiful, clear pictures of our result, like image of microorganism, abnormal chromosome, enlarged cell, Mitosis of the cell, the presence of cyst etc. Providing that we should have good quality camera in mobile, we can smartly capture quality images for our experiments and projects.
You can also share college notes, practical procedure/result on WhatsApp, just by taking snaps and sharing on it.
Youtube adds a smart feature to it as it contains lot of videos related with science. How things happen in vivo, in human beings like DNA replication, cell division, embryo development, chromosome abnormal patterns, how cancer spreads, how infection occurs in the body, how the immunity works in body etc you can easily watch on it and make a clear understanding.
If you are on social site then search for different Biotech communities and pages. Just like Biotech Times which continuously & consistently provides information on the current biotech scenario, job openings, seminars/internship programs, research updates etc. Such kind of FB pages and Communities can add knowledge to you.
Some last words
Our batch was fortunate enough that at our college time 10-11 years back we didn’t have such social sites. we were able to concentrate on studies, we had discussions with friends, teachers on subject, we used to sit in library to make notes, we attended the lectures properly. It was really a fun and I enjoyed it. But on the other side if such sites were there, then we might have become more aware, informative about subject which is essential when you go out or a job as well as for competitive exams.
So guys, you are very much fortunate that you are blessed with a doorstep tool of information, having a huge source of it. Use it thoroughly, properly, genuinely and get a benefit from it.
