How science changed the world in a century?

It is said that evolution occurred over millions of years leading to a lot of gradual changes. But if one were to map the changes that have occurred over the last hundred years, it has changed the world in a way that is beyond imagination. It is difficult to grapple with the changes that have occurred even in the last five years.

The list goes on and on as inventions and discoveries are taken place even as we speak.

Trying to seem cool, wanting to be liked, fear of criticism – these are some of the reasons why children give into peer pressure. It is not something we can escape from; as long as we remain social animals, all of us are subject to peer pressure at all stages in our lives. Adults have come quite a distance in life to have some understanding and clarity about their needs, desires, and capabilities and hence are better equipped to handle peer pressure without giving in or buckling up. But the condition and mentality of children is way different especially those of adolescents. Teens and preteens start developing certain notions and have an utmost longing to be appreciated and liked. Coupled with their raging hormones, their emotions can play truant if not channelized in the right direction.

It was science, arts or commerce, and consequently career options were restricted and were based on these educational qualifications alone. But in the recent years, the education and career scenarios have shifted dramatically following the expanding demands and talents of the generation.
