My father was born in 1933 in a tiny fishing village in southern India. He told me how as a kid he had just one set of good clothes and how getting to school required swimming some distance. Water surrounds his village, so this story must be real.
Last Christmas, I took my son and daughter to visit the village where he was born. They were amazed at how primitive life still is there. For example, they loved seeing a well that people use to draw water with a rope and a bucket.
However, when we went in to visit some relatives, you could see that life has changed. And there’s a generation that is leading this change around the world…
When we went inside my relatives’ houses, we could see that technology has utterly transformed their lives, even in my father’s old fishing village.
