Technology has turned the world in one large home: Dr Burfat
Jamshoro, Saturday 27 January 2018: Technological boom has fast changed the world in a global village with cultures, the miraculous convenience of connectivity and contact among individuals, groups, communities, countries and continents. This was stated by VC-SU Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat on the eve of laptop distribution ceremony under Prime Minister’s National Laptop Scheme held at Senate Hall of VC-Secretariat yesterday. Dr. Burfat further said, ‘Just a quick comparison between the past and the current decades brings us to an utter state of amazement bordering almost on disbelief to witness the magical advancements in the field of science and technology; whereby we cover distances of millions of miles by a flip of finger’. The Vice-Chancellor added that the next decade would fetch new wonders, surprises and innovations that would obliterate the ongoing day’s modernity as obsolete. “Such is the startling pace and dynamism of technological shift in the globe”, he stressed. Dr. Burfat said that the Prime Minister’s laptop scheme had come to Pakistan’s youth as a great educational boon, ensuring for them uninterrupted interface with knowledge and human world. He said the award of laptops to youth belonging to less developed areas with humble financial backgrounds was highly commendable; as those youth would not otherwise be able to afford purchase of such highly useful but expensive (for them) device even during their entire stay at the campuses. SU Focal Person for the given scheme and Chairman, Department of Freshwater Biology and Fisheries Prof. Dr. Wazir Ali Baloch informed on the occasion that around 14600 laptops under three phases; whereas the registration process for the fourth and fifth phases had also been completed and was at the stage of verification. He advised students who had applied online for the award to ensure completion of their respective individual record verification till January 30 after which the system would not entertain their verification requests. Prof. Dr. Anila Naz Soomro and others participated in the ceremony.
