    One of the most obvious choices is a digital clock...

    Can you think of anything else?

    So, that begs the question, "what does the counter do in a particular device?"

    If you describe what you want to do, maybe it will be more easier to talk about it.

    I want to understand its practical aspect relating it to our daily life so that i am able to implement it in any of my future prospects.

    You might as well ask for the meaning of life if you are going to ask such a wide question. You need to ask something more specific.

    Hello Khushi

    We can find counters in:
    Washers machine, count the time to wash and spin.
    Blenders, count the time to grind.
    Microwave ovens, count the cooking time.
    Clothes dryers, count the drying time.
    Digital Clocks, count, exactly, the time.
    Etc.
    We also find counters in measuring instruments:
    Frequency meters, oscilloscopes, signal generators. Etc.

    Hope that helps You

    i have one of these to count the turns when putting windings on a former. i tend to lose count easily, this makes it easy.
