Power is serving us in thousand ways. Rail routes, boats, and planes have destroyed distance and made travel quick and agreeable. The phone and the message have made correspondence quick and simple. The film, the radio, and TV have added another appeal to live. Medication and medical procedures have taken monstrous steps.

Religion appears to have no bearing in current civilization. Science has shaken individuals' confidence in God. God and the spirit are currently outdated ideas. Our human progress is materialistic. Profound qualities never again oversee the activities of individuals. With the deficiency of profound confidence, individuals have additionally lost their principal backing and wellspring of encouragement in the hour of pain. There is a rising disappointment with life.
