In the last fifty years the world has undergone a great deal of transformation. There has been incredible progress in almost all spheres of life. The vistas of knowledge and advancement have grown beyond human imagination.What has been witnessed in the past five decades stands testimony to the fact that however wild imagination may be, it only takes a little time to come true. From what were merely stories of yesterday, which go popularly under the name of science fiction or sci-fi, the musings have become reality today.And what does one know; one day the sci-fi movies that are made today may no longer appeal, as they would already become reality. Just as thepushpak vimanas of the imagination of yore became the flying machines of today, the advancement through superior technology may make the human life undergo unthinkable changes. With technology reinventing itself every few weeks, it is quite likely that in another five decades the world is going to be a changed place.Life is actually going to be very cushy, as the physical movement to accomplish task would have minimised. The quality of life would have improved tremendously, as all the objects of material comforts are at hand. Automation is expected to banish the word drudgery for all times to come.
