India has started to become so pre-occupied by the technology that it has forgotten the importance of people. Everyone in this country is busy in their own gadgets. May it be playing games or doing homework. People have started to do the day to day tasks on the internet as shopping, buying tickets or chatting this has restricted the interaction of people. Social Networking sites have intruded into the lives of people which has made the interaction of people as person reduced in a great ratio. These sites are also a cause of increase of the crime rate in India. I strongly believe that being digital to this extremity has had a very powerful impact on how we live in a bad way...

mt dear friend,the digital India campaign is beneficial and a necessity as it provides job opportunities for many. isn't time India caught up with west in the technological age. there is no point in saying that social media intrudes upon people.this argument you have raised is because of the misunderstanding of the reason for the existence of social media.social media sites have brought people closer than ever, therefore i do believe digital India campaign which aims at digitalising both the rural and urban areas is a positive sign in this age. i do understand there are two sides of a coin. but digital India is not a luxury rather a necessity.

digital India campaign is indeed aright step to embrace the new technological age and by shying away from it is a great mistake. our country needs to get developed in its technological efficiency through digital India campaign. therefor i do believe that digital India is a boon.

Mathew, what will you do if the gadget that u r using to store some important information snaps down? The information will be lost, it will cause great damage and loss of time.
Also the technologies used in our mobile phones or laptops release such harmful rays that cause cancer and skin diseases.
Now a days people depend so much on the internet for stuff that they end up not using their brainsost of the time and therefore cannot even remember simple mathematics.
It makes people lazy and loose their precious time in social networking sites that they don't even go out to play or do any physical exercise. This laziness in people causes obesity.
Children, now a days, get so involved in the internet that they don't get the chance to sit down with their elders, share their experiences and learn to do the things the right way.
Also as the government has started the project of digital India, it has not kept in mind that illiteracy of India. Can you even believe it, 30% of the indian population is illiterate and so poor that they can't even afford the technology.
Slow internet speed also delays our tasks while we depend on the internet at almost everything now a days.
On the basis of these arguements Mathew I still believe that Internet has made our lives worse in so many ways
