Internet aa gaya hai digital hai, har bachche ke haath mein mobile aur na jane kya kya aur saare sansar ka access uske paas hai. Sabhi information, Pura internet mein duniya bhari bhari hai jo kehti hai pani khane se pehle pyyo, baad mein peyo, kuch kehte hai bich piyo. Koi pani kaise piye ye proper education dega? Toh best desh hoga, majbut desh hoga.
