1. Common people being aware of mobile,internet and technology
A dispute over seat allocation in train 16590 was solved with the help of mobile and internet technology by accessing the PNR Enquiry website of Indian Railways.
Apparently, this was due to a mistake by the TTE (Traveling Ticket Examiner) which was solved with technology. The important observation to be made here is that the
decision is readily accepted by both the parties to the dispute. Also, there was a statement "Mei jhoot bol sakta hun, lekin phone jhoot nahi kahega" (I can possibly lie but the phone can 't) made by one of the parties.
The actual incident can be read in this link.
Below is a simple statistic that shows the awareness and usage of internet and smartphones in India.
2014 2015 2016

...that happened in a bar in the US. Two Indian guys came to the bar with their foreign colleagues. One more Indian guy was there
alone. When their American colleagues asked about life in India, the two guys started ranting about traffic, poverty, corruption and went on complaining. When those
two guys went away to the restroom or somewhere, the lonely guy went up to the foreigners, politely excused and said "Please don 't come to a
conclusion about India on those guys opinions. I am from an interior village and I was able to study in a good college because of the government 's reservation. I am
missing the same chaos that these guys are complaining of. Not all people are unhappy with life in India"
Although we have a long way to go, above ten incidents are indications that India - as a system, and its people are changing slowly, but steadily - all for good!

- In order to better understand Gandhi’s philosophy, we need to bear in mind that all of his life was striving for independence of India from British colony. Indian independence means that all Indians are controlled by themselves rather than one hundred thousand of British. He used the Sanskrit word swaraj to express his ambition of India’s independence. The original meaning of swaraj is self-governance or self-rule. Gandhi extended this word by denoting “a sovereign kingdom’s freedom from external control”, on the one hand; “being free from illusion and ignorance, free to gain greater self-knowledge and consequent self-mastery,” on the other hand (Dalton 11)....

- Despair in Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Linda Brent, Ms. Jacobs' pseudonym while writing "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl," became so entrenched in hatred of slaveholders and slavery that she lost sight of the possible good actions of slaveholders. When she "resolved never to be conquered" (p.17), she could no longer see any positive motivations or overtures made by slaveholders. Specifically, she could not see the good side of Mr. Flint, the father of her mistress. He showed his care for her in many ways, most notably in that he never allowed anyone to physically hurt her, he built a house for her, and he offered to take care of her and her bastard child even though it...

- An Inward Collapse of the Human Perspective in Forster's A Passage to India The reverberation of sound in the form of an echo is threaded throughout E.M. Forster's A Passage to India, and the link between the echo and the hollowness of the human spirit is depicted in the text. The echo is not heard in the beginning of the text when the English newcomers, Mrs. Moore and Ms. Quested, arrive in India; it is more clearly heard as their relationship with India gains complexity. The influence of the colonizers and the colonized on one another is inevitable; however, the usual assumption is that the colonists are the most successful in imposing their values and ideologies on the individua...
