How has the Internet and ubiquity of mobile phones changed your quality of life?
I don't think its possible for people who are avid users of smartphones and Internet for that matter , to tell if they have missed something in the process of being accustomed to this. Being of the same category myself, I failt to imagine what I could have missed out on as the importance of gains is so large, its hard to foucs on if there are any losses. The fact that we can't imagine ourselves without our gadgets renders it impossible to think about what these have cost us, if anything.

Very Very well put. Completely agree with your point. Its human beings who do the good or the bad. This is a subtopic of - "Are we happy than our forefathers" I don't know about happiness conmarisons, but given the choice I would have wanted to be alive in these times than back then. About, how old a child needs to be to get his first cell phone ... It can be seen to varry widely amongst society. For a middle class Indian like me I got my first cell phone when I joined college ! Then again, my cousin got it during his school days !

can we reform the discussion surrounding gender inequality?
The outcome from understanding the differences and mutual accept-ion of equal pedestals/platforms would lead to a satisfied and Happy and fulfilled coexistence of both the genders ! What is crucial is that the first part of understanding the differences is a necessary condition for mutual accept-ion of equality.

can we reform the discussion surrounding gender inequality?
Dear Debra (yes its fine everywhere I know of ) About No man can afford a woman and the gift of life, How would my mother have given me that precious gift if it wasn't for My Dad ? Both genders are mutually dependent and equally important.And I can't agree that all men don't subscribe to equitable rewards. I don't think that I can subscribe to " affording women" and I believe not many men would. Women aren't commodities, nor are men. No gender can afford the other, but can and should respect, cherish and love the other. P.S - It wasn't sarcasm , I actually mean't that women use money wisely !!

I believe every sane person respects the fact that "ALL OF US ARE UNIQUE IN OUR OWN LITTLE WAY". And I am one of the sane ones too. My point is, here we are discussing based on the premise that we are talking about Men and Women, and not jack and Drew or Molly or Sonia or josh. We are taking both the genders as whole. So even though every person is unique, that isn't the question here, though its a very nice thought here. But I will take this thought forward, and say that just as we are all UNIQUE so are MEN and WOMEN on whole and hence my whole argument.

Debra, You are absolutely right about women using money wisely !!! On a serious note,both Men and Women are involved in life sustaining roles. Unequal wages may be cause of how our society has been for the past hundred of years.About equal wages, my first thought is that it is obvious and if the work involved is of equal importance , wages should be equal. I mean that wages should be based on the position value and not gender. And all positions should be open to all. A similar story has been doing the rounds about Maria sharapova and the new ruling that states that prize money in tennis will be same for Men and Women. In a recent debate one of the top 20 Men's player opposed the Idea. Here again I think that prize money shouldn't be on the basis of gender but on the premise that are women and Men Tennis matches equally compelling, heart warming, dramatic, entertaining or not ? If yes, then there should be no qualms about equal prize money.

can we reform the discussion surrounding gender inequality?
These are not the norms I am proscribing ! I am talking about the way men and women have been made ever since the first homo sapiens set foot on earth. Nature has made us that way. There will always be exceptions but as a general there is a difference in what image Man and Woman have been made. I am not for once saying that one is better. No. All I am saying is that each one is in some ways different than the other and hence we talk about equal and not same !!!

I believe what needs to be understood is that Men and Women are different, made different, so they cant have the same platform, position, call it anything. Instead, they have to be at different but equal levels, pedestals. The difference between same and equal needs to be understood. Especially, where I come from.
