    Too much dependence on technology & AI will be a disaster if this example is taken into account. Let us think natural disasters like cyclones, earth quakes, & avalanches will kill all possible alternatives to normal systems. Let us assume some hackers sabotage our systems, our enemy countries doing the same forcing us to go back to our stone age. A balance between the 2 should be a right option. I remember an incidence when our late PM Vajpayee who was fond of foreign cars sat inside a new car & the doors wouldn't open & our roadside mechanic broke open the glass & opened the door with a tool invented by stone age man the Hammer.
