Happy World Telecommunication Day 2021!

Telecommunication has revolutionized the world and we are thankful for it.

This is the digital age and we cannot imagine a day without gadgets, let alone imagining how life would have been without the evolution of Telecommunication.

Telecommunications and information technology have advanced the whole world much beyond the expectations of the common people.

The age of handwritten postal letters seems to be long gone because of the rapid evolution of technology.

We millennials do not miss the old world when there was minimum technology, but the same cannot be said for the baby boomers.

It is natural for baby boomers to find it hard to get used to the technologies and the rapid advancement in telecommunication but that does not mean they are all opposed to it.

Telecommunications and information technology have made our lives a hundred times easier, though not necessarily happier.
