Some years ago we had to communicate with our relative or friend in the USA, England or Japan only through letters, and it would take some days for the letters to reach our relative or friend.
Now, computers have made the world a global village. For, we give messages to our relative or friend abroad through e-mails which take only some minutes or seconds to reach him or her.
