Communication plays an important role in today's world. The contemporary era belongs to Information Technology (IT). We are living in a small world that is subjugated by business relationships, high-speed data transfers, and speedy information exchanges. Communication is part of the IT revolution. The cable TV, telephone, cellular phone, fax, e-mail, satellite phone, internet superhighway, letters, couriers, pagers, and other highly developed modes of information exchange are used for communication. No country can progress without resourceful modes of communication. Some of the countries are the most prosperous nations in the world due to the highest levels of Internet connections, cellular phones, telephones, cable TV connection, and other information exchange technologies. India is also developing as a preferred market for communication enthusiasts and professionals. We have come a long way since independence in terms of the communication revolution.

In urban areas, cellular phones, telephones, fax transmissions, e-mail transmissions and Internet can be easily seen. City life is very speedy and quick modes of communication are required. Communication through cellular phones has become quite reasonable and all the classes can afford it. Nowadays telephone booths are easily available in all the towns or villagers of India. It is through the telephone that people communicate with their business associates, acquaintances, and relatives at a cheaper rate. A lot of firms and professionals use fax and e-mail services. However, the number of internet connections is still not so much as compared to that in the West. India is a huge nation and so the communication modes like the internet have become its necessity. Internet is the communication mode of the current century. The Internet enables the students, professionals, business firms, MNCs, and youth to have fun as well as entertainment.

In the countryside, there are local telephone exchanges, SID booths, ISD booths, mail, and couriers. The modes of communication over here are still underdeveloped. Some people do not have sufficient access to even telephones. The country is divided into telecom circles. Therefore, many cellular phone operators have entered the rural markets as well. They provide services to the users of cellular phones in rural areas. But all the people living in villages cannot afford this mode of communication. In some villages, definitely, the internet has helped to converse with people around the world with just a click of the mouse. In the urban parts of India, the internet telephone service has become the most favorite among the young generation.

Communication informs us, forces us, and keeps us enthusiastic about everything. The newspapers, magazines, and other apparatus of print media help the masses of the country to receive day-to-day information. We are fortunate that newspapers, magazines, and journals are being published and distributed throughout India. They help in giving information to people and making them aware of the happenings in the country. This is a healthy sign for a democratic nation like ours. In addition to this, cable TV networks are also available in rural and urban India. The educational and entertaining programs are telecast through cable networks to educate the illiterates in our country. In India and other developing nations, couriers are also used to a large extent for transferring business and personal information. But communication has gained a good platform through the Internet.

Modern methods of communication are cheap, suitable, and well-organized. The networks of satellites, which round the earth, help mankind in communication successes. India has already sent extremely sophisticated communications satellites into space. Further, all the telephone changes have been made digital, except a few of them. The next phase of the IT revolution is the digital revolution which is knocking at our doors. We must utilize these technologies for our growth and development of our country.
