Over the years technology has grown so much that today we cannot think of surviving even few hours without it.
Born in the early 90s, I have grown up seeing the technology progress and I had adapted well to that change. But it wasn’t this easy for my parents and my grand parents.
While few of the people from the older generation have brilliantly coped up with the change, but my father has been one among those who couldn’t.
My dad’s reaction when I buy things online..”wow! you get all this also on your laptop?”
Now you have an idea about how technology friendly is my dad. LOL
But what about me and my cousins who are younger to me by a decade and more?
