I personally envy with the new generation, during my school days due to less presence of technology, I used to struggle a lot to learn each subject by attending the classes, finishing & submitting the project and assignment. To complete the summer vacation homework I used to visit all the local libraries possible. Today when we look back to our days of school we remember how difficult it was to mug-up so many subjects.
Another difficulty that we used to face is during the notes making in the lectures if you missed a small thing you missed the whole understanding of the topic.
It was so hard for the teachers to address the doubts of each student and at last, the only option left would be mugging.
