    In this modern era, due to advancements in technology and the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence, digitalization has become a norm in each and every field. It is believed by many people that Ebooks and modern technology will totally replace traditional newspapers and magazines. I completely agree with this notion.

    To begin with, the internet has become a big part of peoples day to day activities. Nowadays, when the world is moving at a rapid pace, each and every minute of people is crucial. The Internet provides the solution to most of the problems in a quick span of time. For example, according to the survey conducted by “The New York Times” around 60% of the people prefer to read Ebooks as compared to newspapers. Moreover,in every corporate sector most of the magazines are published online only as it covers a maximum proportion of the audience.

    Another point to consider is that, in most parts of the world, governments are trying their best to minimize the use of paper as its manufacturing involves cutting of trees.For instance,the top firms in corporate sector like Apple,Microsoft,Google has urged their employees to carry out the documentation work online only.

    Furthermore, E-books are easy to use and provide lots of flexibility. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has said that “The day is not far away when the internet will become the necessity of life, like food and water”.I personally believe that to reduce manual work and to minimize the dependency on certain people digitalization can play a vital role.

    In conclusion, I believe that digital technological advancements are going to play a major role in any countries overall growth and development. More and people in the future are going to utilize digitalization and it will soon become a compulsion in each and every stream.

    In modern context, E-book is quite popular phenomena which we can understand from its usability in urban population. If we need to understand the reasons about being in trend

    Firstly, easy accessibility, now a day’s lot of search engines are available in the market, you only require electronic device and internet, which is more than enough.

    Secondly you need not to visit physically in library or bookshop for your desired book, sometimes if it is urgently required for your presentation or exam. E-book is quite time saver in that context. Moreover, searching book is also one tedious task, which is quite easy using digital media.

    If we talk in terms of environmental context, Traditional book system uses a lot of paper, which produced by trees. E-book is here very effective factor, or you can say environment saver.

    However traditional books or newspapers have their own charm, which we can not ignore but we can understand by analyzing human behavior. In one research it is found out that who uses e- media very frequently they are basically more impulsive, suffering from lack of concentration and easily get bore. However, if we talk about traditional book reader, usually observed have more patience and quite calm by nature.

    It is true, E-media is quite handy and easy to use but somewhere impacting human psychology and health.

    Another thing digital media will acquire our libraries and traditional book culture. Over the time our libraries will disappear. Ideally, we need to save them.

    So we can say, both side of coins are important. We deserve to have choices, instead of being monotonous. It is all about to manage harmony between traditional and modern system.

    Firstly, E-books and other sort of modern technology is a win-win situation for both publishers and subscribers. There are multiple reasons to support this argument. Modern technology made reaching of news affordable, easy and fast. People can access this from wherever they want. Due to this, there is a steady growth in independent publishers and media houses and cost of publishing has drastically come down when compared to paper publishing. Many new authors and citizen journalists are welcomed and encouraged to prove their worth in the filed of journalism and book writing from zero to low cost. This technology is echo friendly as use of paper is kept minimal. This technology is helping news to go censor free. For example, publishing an E-book with print on demand option is very feasible to those who cannot get the big publishing house to publish their book as the cost is zero. Independent media houses are using modern technology like social media and penetration of the internet to grow there reach e.g., newsclick.in

    Secondly, newspapers and magazine are traditional way of consuming news for now as many of the people are from old school. Sharing the news on paper is the one of the oldest methods invented in china in 18th century. one of interesting thing is people need to wait for next day to read the news which occurred yesterday but they get all the news from politics to sports at one place. a study show there is study decline of subscribers for newspapers and magazines.

    In conclusion, People who are consuming the content online are increasing day by day however they must be aware of the misinformation spread due to easy of technology in publishing. Though subscribers for newspapers are decreasing there is more chance of seeing factual news in them. Both newspapers and E-books should continue to maintain balance in the society.

    It is often found that some people say that Ebooks and modern technologies will totally replace the traditional newspapers and magazines. Being present in the twenty-first-century we cannot deny the aforementioned fact. Wherefore, I completely agree that in the near future the Ebooks and advanced technologies are going to replace the magazines and newspapers.

    Firstly, since past thirty to forty years there has been a paradigm shift in the standard of living among the present generations when compared to the older generations that belongs to the 19th century. For example, the modern youths are much more tech-savvy and are often found using the contemporary gadgets like smart phones and tablets which are being loaded with the contemporary applications.

    Thus, during travelling or while staying outside, everyone can easily go through any kind of an electronic version of a printed book that they want to read on their mobile phones, which in turn is saving their precious time and is making one’s life much simpler and easy.

    Secondly, I would also like to emphasize a point that during the pandemic when the entire world was on the back foot, it was only the modern technologies that has helped us to achieve our daily activities with an ease. For example, through the latest smart phones we can easily pay our monthly utility bills via different payment applications, like ‘PhonePe’, ‘Google Pay’, ‘Cred’, and many more, which are absolutely contactless, safe, secure and fast. Thereby, it is not only saving our valuable time but, it is also reducing the use of paper, which in turn is safeguarding the environment by protecting the trees.

    Therefore, to
    conclude, I strongly agree with the fact that in near future the modern gadgets
    with the cutting edge technologies and the Ebooks will replace the traditional
    newspapers and magazines.
