The turn of the millennium saw a generation start moving away from the old fashioned method of pen and paper to indulge themselves; moving onto screens to be digitally immersed in everything they desire. These multifaceted offerings in tech, inclusive of communication, practicality and entertainment is something that has taken over the world, and it has been able to connect people in ways that we couldn’t have envisaged a mere decade ago.
