Limited Capacity seats available

The emergence of technology in today’s world can best be described as a double-edged sword. On one hand, it undoubtedly possesses the peculiar features of connecting humans from far and wide, renders geographical barriers obsolete and undoubtedly made human connection more efficient. However, the reality is that virtual connection has grown geometrically and has been able to ensure that there are more real disconnections exists in both economic and socio-political human interactions.

The effect is that the erstwhile humane feel and emotional neighbourliness which humans used to share in their face to face relations have become blurred or inexistent in human interactions. Business, family life, schools, offices etc now thrive in the virtual space and the need to ensure that more human connections are achieved in this space has become a real time challenge.
