    Question:
    When a country develops its technology, the traditional skills and ways of life die out. It is pointless to try and keep them alive. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

    Response:

    Every country has its own traditions and ways of living. It is very important to keep traditions to help younger generations to know about their countries history. However, when a country improves its technology, the traditional skills and way of living changes automatically. I partially agree with this statement. I believe that, both the technology and traditional skills are required for country’s growth.
    Initially, every country tries to develop its technology. Because, the improvement in technology gives a lot of benefits to nation. Moreover, it reduces the time requirement to a particular work, and gives more productivity. For instance, in the past, farmers use animals and some of the iron equipment to make cultivation and transportation facilities. After the improvement in technology, nowadays, they use automobiles for farming and transportation purposes. It gives the productive time to work.
    On the other hand, the traditional skills and ways of living also play an important role in country’s growth. So that people remember their old skills and way of living. Without the past things, we might not develop our technology. Because, they are the basic things to make growth in every country. There also lot of uses by keeping our past skills alive. By using them, there is no heavy pollution. Furthermore, it gives quality product output. The lands also have good strength for farming.
    To conclude, a country also develops its technology, by keeping the traditional skills and ways of life alive. I believe that, these both are required to a nation to improve. Because, the two have their individual importance on nation.
