Good & bad use of any tool depends on the the user and not the technology itself. We criticise because we don’t like to blame ourselves or accept that we have lost control on our own senses. Efforts has to be taken to learn to control senses and not growth of technology.#yoga

I have observed this many times in many places. this is best innovative use for deaf and dumb people. I feel happy that video calling helps them to connect as well as in one case I saw someone using to ask directions or help for work over a video call. Beautiful tech use.
