But, looking at today’s scenario, are we evolving or making ourselves fit in a frame which is liked by everybody no matter how difficult and uncomfortable it is. We are more influenced by others and look towards influencing others but sometimes quite shallow from our inner deep. This is not what the tools of modernity should do with us.
