He could not command the air with F-16 or MiG-21.He could not lighten his room with tube light or coal it with a powerful air condition.He could send a message through a horse rider or a personal messenger but could not enjoy the modern communication system of digital telephone, fax,mobile phone and the internet facilities of the present days' life.This gulf of difference is all the blessing of the power of knowledge. Knowledge in one form or the other is the basis of all progress and happiness.
