Around 40. There were no computers before that and we used typewriters. There was a huge IBM machine and they printed pay slips on that machine. Key punch operators were engaged for that specific job. I learnt computers from in-house trainings in the Institute and slowly the typewriters were phased out.
My son learnt computers around the age of 5 and my grandson from the age of 3 (believe it or not). He learnt many things from my son just by watching my son work on the computer.
Today\'s generation is so lucky with so many advanced gadgets available to them.

In 1975 when 95 % of India never knew what computer. it was a GIANT IBM computer system when prog and data was punched on cards (HOLES were made on data cards by punch machines)
the language was AUTO CODER.

U will be surprised to know that I did not learn to work on the computer to the age of 60+. It was only after my retirement from service that my children forced me to work on a computer.I am still learning.
