The knowledge from Science has made work done in hours into minutes and minutes into seconds. It has not only made us physically comfortable but also has made us mentally relaxed.
But the questions still arise: Is science only for men’s comfort?
Today, progress is the product of science. Science is now everywhere in life. Science has given power and knowledge. In earlier times life was so boring. There was no entertainment in life. Earlier then, it was time-consuming to travel short distances but now we travel through long distances very easily and it is no more time-consuming.
Airplanes make traveling much easier, but fighter planes are used for bombs destroying different areas, kill thousands of men. Poisonous gases, chemicals, armored cars, tanks, are used in wars and are destructive. We can say that science is a blessing as well as a curse. Anything is the best of it if we use it in the right way.
