You should use your own ideas, knowledge and experience and support your arguments with examples and relevant evidence. You should write at least 250 words.




With the development in technology, the traditional skills and ways of life does die out, which is in terms of typewriters. However, for some goods it does not happen in all areas of the world; specifically talking about the developing countries.
If we talk about typewriters, which are nowadays replaced by the computers. Looking into the past, not everyone was skilled to use the typewriters, for it required a special skill of maintaining the formatting of the content through typing pace. Although, this need of preciseness has been resolved with the invention of computers, which automatically maintains the formatting and is comparatively very easy to use. But, the people who were qualified to use typewriters are now redundant and have become extinct due the technological shift to the computers, and nowadays no one requires a separate typist for the work. This shows that, moving away from traditional skills due to the technology is inevitable.
However, if we talk about electric cars, which has brough revolution in the automobile industry and have created a niche for specialized mechanics, has actually not made the traditional diesel engine car’s mechanic redundant. Although, some people from developed countries might prefer soundless electric cars, many people from developing countries prefer to drive diesel engine cars. This is because, latest electric cars are not available in their area or even it does not match their culture. For instance, people from traditional Punjabi culture prefers to have cars which have loud sound, just to show their influence in their society. So, despite the technological advancement towards electric cars, the usage of diesel engine cars and its mechanic have not decreased to extinction.
In terms of typewriters, indeed it is pointless to try to keep the tradition alive, but for cars it can happen, depending upon the availability of goods.
Thus, with the development in technology, the traditional skills and ways of life does die out in some instances, but not for all.
