AWA : Reliance On Technology The ability of humans to think for themselves has not deteriorated with the use of tachnology. Humans are the ones who come up with new and better technology for there use. They invent new technology to make there life easier and faster. They think for themselves which results in imporvement and evolution of technology. Computer was inevnted long time back since then it is evolving according to the need of current time. Nowdays computer has made office work a lot easier. New processors are used which increase the speed of computers. Making these processors challenging requires a lot of thinking. Calculators do long calculations in less time. This saves time which we can use to do other important work and look for new technology. All this research is done because we think for ourselves. Some peoplle may think that this has reduced our mental power to do easy calculations but on the whole technology has not deteriorated our ability to think for ourselves. In concluson, technology has not deteriorated the ability for humans to think for themselves.

ISSUE TASK: Government should offer a free university education to any student who has been admitted to a university but who cannot afford the tuition. Education is a powerful weapon which can transform the world. Universities not only help in enhancing mental aptitude or knowledge of a person but also lead to all-round development & growth, shaping & focussing the career. Education is the right of every citizen and should not be biased on the basis of gender, caste, religion & social status. Given the rise of cost of education and increase in middle class family strata, it is becoming more and more difficult to attain a high level of education. So I believe government should offer a free university education to any student who has been admitted to a university but who cannot afford the tuition fee. Since there is upsurge in education costs, middle class and below average people get deprived of education and thus increasing the gap between the various levels of society. Government spending on education will bring fruit in another sense. There will be a spurt of engineers, doctors, lawyers and trained professionals which will eventually lead to development of the nation as a whole. Government exempting the people from tuition fee will have benefits manifold. Many students who withdraw themselves from schools & universities and start working will eventually seek higher education- especially those who have merit but not funding. With sound education they will contribute to the welfare of society and crime rate will fall rapidly. On the other hand government has to spend lavishly on laboratories, advanced technology and research projects. This will definitely affect the salaries of staff and overall working of the university. Quality of education may drop, and thus policy makers will have to handle the situation with greater care. In nutshell, I would like to say that exempting meritorious students from tuition fee will bring forth more number of professionals, more research work, more doctorate degrees and masters education but on careful scrutiny it can be said that an enormous amount of money and energy will be required to accomplish this task. So policy makers must ruminate before executing this law.
