American Center: Are Smartphones dividing us?

New Delhi, 15 September 2018.

To keep pace with this fast-moving world people are contingent on the use of technology and a phone is the first in this line. Smartphones provide a good range of services to the user, thanks to the convergence of technology. People are engaged with their smartphones more than with the real people. This eventually leads to gaps in the relation, however, at the same time, it gives us a way to connect globally with millions. Now the question is, Is the increased popularity of smartphones bringing us together or dividing us further?

American Center New Delhi has organized a session to put light on this matter on 21st September 2018, 6 pm to 7 pm at the American Center New Delhi. The dialogue will be enriching as Ravi Agarwal, Managing Editor, Foreign Policy and author of “India Connected: How the Smartphone Is Transforming the World’s Largest Democracy” and Snigdha Poonam, author, and journalist discuss how smartphones are making and unmaking the country.
