There are so many individuals or groups of them who make a difference in our lives in various ways. While we genuinely feel for some of them, there are many others who we detest and would never like to meet again.
Moreover, it’s not necessary that you have to meet people for them to make a difference in your lives. I see that your surprised. So let’s quickly get down to penning the list.
We are what we are because of our family. They are the ones who bring us up, teach us the values of good and bad, bear our tantrums and help in moulding us into good human beings.
Whether its our school or college, our teachers surely play a huge part in shaping our lives. As kids, there are so many things we learn from our teachers in the classrooms. Once we move on to college far away from home, the teachers have an equally important yet different role to play. They are our mentors guiding us to perfection so that we can build successful careers.
A human without friends is like a fish without water. We all need friends who we can laugh with, cry with, smile with, tell our problems to and more. Whether its the 3am friend or the friends with whom we study; the friends with whom we go for lunch or the friends who accompany us just for movies and hanging out, every friend is important. As the Airtel ad says ‘Har Ek Friend Zaroori Hota Hai‘.
Alexander Graham Bell
When he invented the first telephone in 1876, even he wouldn’t have imagined how revolutionary his invention was. From landlines to feature phones to smartphones, we have come a really long way. While it revolutionized the way people in far off lands could communicate with each other, today phones have become a lot more useful as they include excellent music players, cameras and more so much so that you just need a smartphone and no other device whatsoever.
Inventors of modes of transport
Whether it’s Karl Benz (car), Wright Brothers (Aeroplanes) or Richard Trevithick (Train), the inventors of the different modes of transport surely made a huge difference in the way people traveled from one place to another which was thousands of kilometers away. It was quite a difference from the huge number of days it took to travel on bullock carts or ships.
Discoverers of electricity
Individuals like Nikolas Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, James Watt, Alessandro Volta, Thomas Edison and Michael Faraday all played a part in discovering electricity and electronic equipment in their own ways. Their discovery has changed the lives for billions who were used to living in the dark or powering their lives only with coal.
Pioneers of the Internet
While there are many pioneers of the Internet, Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf can be signaled out as the two key men who invented the Internet. The Internet has played quite a role in digitizing journals, newspapers, books, magazines and more. With its numerous articles and thousands of websites, it has helped make the world a smaller place than ever. Any information one wants is available at the click of a button.
While there are many others who I would be thankful for, these 7 groups of individuals have surely made a huge difference in my life in one way or the other.
