“Indian students have contributed largely to the growth of science and technology, which has in turn changed lifestyles in the 21st century,” he remarked. While maintaining that computers and mobiles made accessibility to information easier, he added that it had also widened the digital divide between urban and rural areas. “Apart from social and economic inequalities, efforts need to be made to remove technological inequalities between the urban and rural regions,” he suggested.
