SKILL
Importance of Science in Everyday's Life
Science is important in our everyday’s life because in every second we does some work and in every work some science is there. If we throw stone in the sky then stone will come down and some science is there .Every person feels the effect of science in every sphere of life.It is not merely the electric light or the electric fan, the radio or the cinema that displace the power of science in our daily life, but everything we do or is done to us is in some way or another connected with science.
It is, indeed, true that science has added tremendously to the comforts and conveniences of mankind.
Unless one is an ascetic, one has no reason to reject the things science fears. .By conquering time and distance science has brought mankind together and so far made life richer. By inventing medicines it has made our day –to-day existence relatively free from disease, and has, indeed, added to our length of life.
It cannot be denied that there is some truth in the above criticism. But we cannot now go back to the old days. We should have all the comforts and conveniences, and we should try to improve upon them. But we must try to be master of scientific appliance, if we can do so science will make are lives richer and in conquering nature man will also ennoble himself.

कुछ तो नया करना होगा,
कुछ तो नया करना होगा,
लीक की परिपाटी छोड़ कर,
नया रास्ता बनाना होगा ,
दुनिया तो पहुँच गई ,
चाँद तारों पर।
हम अभी भी चल रहे है,
अपनी ही लकीरों पर ,
वहीं पुराने आदर्शों को थामे,
बंधनो में जकड़े,
कल्पना शक्ति पर ताला लगाये,
स्वयं को श्रेष्ठ बनाएँ।
अब तो जड़े खोखली हो गयी,
परिवर्तन की आँधी कब तक ठहरेगी,
उचाईयों को छूना है हमको,
नयी रोशनी भरनी होगी,
नए जोश नए उमंग से,
नया रास्ता बनाना होगा।

“SCIENCE: A blessing or a curse”
Science is a blessing. Science has given legs to lame and eyes to blind. X-ray is a window through which we can see inside the body. X-ray has done much in finding out many diseases. Vaccination has almost rooted out small-pox, cholera etc. Plastic surgery is latest development in surgery. Now germs die, men live. Today man can live longer and healthier life. Science had conquered time and space. Now man flies in the sky a bird and swims in ocean like a fish ships, airplanes, trains and motors have been invented. Electricity is another wonder. In the field of industry machines are very important. Cinemas, radio, transistors and television give us recreation. Computer and robots are wonder. Man has reached the moon. Science has given birth to many evils. It has invented various war weapons. Atom and hydrogen bombs, rockets, missiles are the example. Science has shaken our faith in god and religion. Science has given us wealth but no happiness. Science is a magic.
