That’s why they aren’t much influential stimuli for social change.

But against it there is Carl Markistic Theory which is turned in to capitalistic and applicable theory and it is not only existing but also dominating theory, and every one who is little bit familiar with any concept of economy is well known with capitalism theory. And same as there are some theories which has given technological shape are dominating theories as cell phone computer and Automobiles. All these devises where established on some certain theory but now these theories has turned into technology, that’s why these devices not only their own operators, maintenance but also they have a vest rang of its influences.


CELL PHONE is a communicational device which connects common people with each other around the clock but when we analyze its impacts in society we can observe an immense change in socio culture behavior, cell phone mania has broadened our vision create a sense of caring for women rights because in laws waste an easy job not only made phone which not only made the mother independent but also madder has life and right secure now she can have here cell phone to be connected with her friends relatives and others.

Technology and steam flow of information has changed our values, rituals, customs and social Norms. Before 20years it was an unethical task to listen any kind of music with in the family but now this trend has changed now music is every where, in mobiles there F.Ms down loaded music, vibrant and shrieking music in Cars, loud music at home, disco dance clubs even in offices during the working hours music is on, our advertisement, dramas, movies, even our curriculum is adorned with music, its mean music has change all the phenomenon.


Technology has changed all of our social relation ship we are all alone while living at our own home because when we get up early in the morning daddy is at his office, mom is ready to go for her social work or her job all siblings are also ready for their schools colleges and universities, here comes Individuality, if you are infant baby you would be brought up in such a atmosphere where mother and father are stranger for him so this infant baby is growing up in such a environment where relations aren’t any considerable or valuable thing. That’s why He/She is an individual in social life, he/she has its own vision field of interest takings and disliking now he a mature one he / she has started his / her job matrimonial life off springs but parents are where?

Now they are facing the consequences of the neglect ion of their baby. They have need of their children but they have started their individual life so parents are nothing for them old Homes and Isolate life waits for them for ever This is ultimate consequence of Technology.
