India’s Infrastructure Increasing

technological confusion

This may look confusing to someone without the proper knowledge to know what these cords do! Taken by Tom Taker.

Technology means so much more in the last 30 years than it has ever meant in history. Every day, there are countless new discoveries that lead to gains in making human life easier, more efficient, and more convenient. We can do so much more with the time we have because travel times have decreased. Cooking food takes about a quarter of the time it used to take since we can shorten the process in many ways. Shelter is hardly a concern, and a house can be built in less than a week if enough technology is involved. These are just some small examples of every day use of technology, not even beginning with chemistry and science, which can do marvelous things for today’s already modern world.

When incorporating these new technologies, we must keep balance in infrastructure. If the structure cannot keep up with the changes and improvements in technology, then these will hardly improve life at all. This seems to be a problem that was happening in India. It has been improving in the recent years, but there are still gains that need to be made. This article will briefly discuss these matters, and how India can continue to improve with its infrastructure and function.

Infrastructure looks at the basic function of a society, and how efficiently it runs. When I talk about the technology and the infrastructure, I’m looking at the social scene of India as a whole, and the benefit of all the people. An item may work great for an individual, but it may harm another’s way of living. The relationship is the focus of the technological aspect of infrastructure in India.

The spread of wealth among India is very large. The rich are considered to live like kings, while the poor are sometimes lucky to obtain three meals a day. When you have this great scale of wealth, it is obvious that the latest technology is found in the hands of the wealthy. They have cars, big homes, maybe a washing machine, dish washer, etc. These are considered luxuries for those who are below the poverty line. Those who live below the poverty line rely on working by hand. They may not even have access to consistent electricity, and cook with very basic food items. Technology has not yet become a huge part of these people’s lives.

When we start to incorporate these items into every day life, it can be a challenge to see how these may negatively affect others. When we drive our cars down roads, how does this affect bikers, or those who have scooters? The roads don’t run as efficiently if there are not proper signals for all vehicles. Every piece of technology needs to find its place in a country that doesn’t have 100% organization. Hotels that require copious amounts of electricity make cause power cuts for those who can’t afford the rising bill cost. This hinders those who need to change their schedule according to the time the electricity is active.

A prime example where India could improve it’s efficiency. These could be very dangerous. Taken by Robert Cudmore.

This divide of infrastructure could be and has been helped with proper organization among towns. When towns find solutions to these simple problems, they begin to run smoother. They can then support more technological gains in the future, and can follow in these steps. As previously mentioned, India has made improvements in these areas. They need to continue for India to be treated and respected as a country of power on a global scale. India is very large, and has the ability to increase its infrastructure by its proper use of technology.
