The technical gadgets are
good for human comfort, convenience and advancement in life. The gadgets
make things possible which are not possible otherwise. However, the use
of the gadgets has tremendously increased in uncontrolled manner resulting in
some side effects.
Straining of human relations is one of them.
Children to adults are engaged in using the gadgets and enjoying their
time alone rather than sharing their time with their near and dear directly.
So the direct human relations are affected.
The influence is more prominent when children or
adults derive more pleasure from the use of gadgets than directly interacting
with other persons.
Over use of the gadgets
may lead to addiction and often people cannot live without the gadgets. People
could become less efficient in social interactions.
But for people living very far away the
gadgets allow them to interact more and visually too. Thus technology
brings them closer. This is especially true of the old people living far
from their children.
Children may often neglect their elders and
develop some kind of superiority feelings due to the valuable gadgets they
possess. This could influence the relations that they have.
Often children want to possess the latest
gadgets and are angry with their parents for not buying them. This the
gadgets could also cause some temporary strains. Proper and limited use of the gadgets
preserves and enhances the interactions among people.
Further many bad persons are utilizing the modern gadgets for exploiting and exercising power over other people. Many modern gadgets are allowing some people to control other people. These factors create tensions among people and fear to mingle with each other. Modern gadgets are also bringing bad culture, developing laziness and are making youth to look down upon their elders with no respect.
Finally, I will say that modern gadgets have capability to bring a person to among people as well as to hide oneself away from people. It is how we utilize the gadgets, which makes human relations better or worse.
