With all these happening the people in my community were still in the olden days of communication where messengers were sent to deliver information.The age of computerization had not yet come clear to their mind. I remember only one man who had a television and almost every person wanted to get into his house to watch what people walk and talk they called a 'box' In the wake of an idea, my son came up with the idea to open a cyber cafe around the area and a computer school plus offering other computer services like typing printing photocopying etc. With time students enrolled in the computer school they were taught and the business started to pick up and within two years the entire village came to term with the age of computerization and effective communication with a few who were abroad and that became the exodus of the entire community to anew era of computerization and effective communication.
