A couple of decades ago, the plastic money was limited to the high and mighty of the country. Plastic money or the credit card, though was introduce as way back as 1981 by the Andhra Bank, it has become widely prevalent in the last ten years with every bank account holder having a debit/credit card. This was possible only after complete computerization of banks and introduction of core banking. This banking revolution has brought in a qualitative change in the life of the common people since the burden of carrying wads of currency notes has been reduced. That small plastic card embedded with a micro chip and the four letter pin embedded in one's brain did wonders in day to day life and the mundane activities. 

This was possible only because of the technology. Though India is slow in catching up with technology (for example credit cards have come into existence as far back as late fifties and sixties of last century in America and Europe while it has become vogue in India in the last part of the last millennium), the country definitely is catching up with the latest technological innovations.

Today, the buzzword is digitalization. The present Central Government has taken a headlong plunge for digitalization in all aspects of our life. What is more important is that smart phones powered by Android are playing a major role in this regard. With smart phones available at affordable prices for common man, technology has come to his fingertips whether it is finding whatever is happening around the world or sending instant messages and photographs to your dear and near ones. And you want to make some shopping…well it is done instantly without entering a crowded shopping mall and away from the hustle and bustle of shouting vendors.

This is technology…this is the future.
