Excess of technology ruins

Most of us are using so many apps on mobile and spending plenty of time using those apps. Well, even I am not exception but excess of technology sometime ruins. I would like to narrate one incident where I used Google Maps and screamed after using it.

I visited Dehradun, Uttrakhund from Gurgaon recently and chose Google Maps to show me the route. It showed me two ways and advised me to go via shortest route which I followed. After reaching half way, I found that road was damaged so badly that I was not able to proceed. After collecting information from villagers nearby, I got to know that this path was always like that. One of the villagers advised me not to go further on that path as for cars its not possible to cross. He advised me to take alternate route which was going through the villages. Thanks to Indian people who are so kind and helpful.

Although that road was raw and some patches were there yet it was better then the path Google Maps proposed. By somehow, I could reach Dehradun crossing so many villages. Generally it takes 5 hours to reach Dehradun but that day it took 9.5 hours to reach to destination. I conveyed my thanks to GOD and villagers who helped me to reach there.

To conclude, I am in complete agreement that using technology to some extent surely helps but using it in excess ruins.

This is what I have written to Google:

 " I have used Google Maps (India) to get the way to Dehradun, Uttrakhund from Gurgaon. It showed me 2 ways and    advised me to go from shortest path which I followed. After going half way I found that the road is so damaged that I can  not proceed.

 So I would like to suggest that if Google could provide feedback popup for that route where a person can give some  rating or comments would be really great. It would help you to choose the best way to go."


Share you incidence and help people to make life better.
