Hello, world, I am Ojaswanie Sharma, I am an 11-year-old girl. I live in Jaipur. Summer season is going on, the temperature is high. At night when I was sleeping in my room with the air conditioner on then, I wondered that how had the people in the 1960s survived with a so hot condition.
The entire night I was unable to sleep and I just kept on wondering about it the entire night, then the next morning I googled about 1960s. After knowing about the lifestyle of that time I thought to write it and post it on the internet. This post is about the differences between now and the 1960s.
CHANGE IN TECHNOLOGIES:
We all had noticed that there had been many differences in the past and the modern generation, and soon these small little differences came up to become many important things to think about. It’s hard to believe that how the technology changed in the past 30-40 years.
EASY COMMUNICATION SYSTEM NOWADAYS
Earlier most of the people used a telephone for communication purposes while now the majority uses smartphones for the same.
ADVANTAGES OF THE PRESENT
Just like a coin have two different sides, in the same way, both the time periods have advantages. The advantages of the present are that Earlier there were no metal detectors at the airport while now there are metal detectors at the airports for checking and security purposes. In the past, some towns did not have any local independent TV station while now every town owns a local and independent TV station. Earlier there were no cable televisions, while now we have cable televisions. In fact the 1960s televisions had less programs while now we are having a variety of programs for our entertainment. Now we have a huge variety of everything if compared to the 1960s, we have internet while earlier there was no internet and so people were not able to clear their doubts by searching about them on the internet.
ADVANTAGES OF THE PAST
In the 1960s there were less chances of robbery taking place and so people did not have to lock the doors at night. The parents did not had to worry much about their kids playing outside after sunset as there were much minor chances of kidnapping. At those times there was much lesser pollution and global warming and so people were able to live a much better life. As there were less channels coming on the televisions so the family members were able to spend time with each other while nowadays we are watching television half of our day. There were no plastic bottles in the 1960s, and so the life was much less harmful.
LACK OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE 1960s
In the 1960s there were no space stations, no email while nowadays email is very necessary. There were no digital cell phones, I can’t even imagine about a life without digital cell phone or smartphones. There was no USB connection. The life of the people at the past was much simpler from the life we are living at the present. The vehicles at that time did not had the speed that they have in the present. There were no CDs and so people were not able to hear their favorite songs. There were no wheelchairs at that time and so it was hard for the injured patients to go from one place to another.
