Everything seems to be very fast in this growing world.

We are self-centered people who love to live alone.

Hence, leaving behind the blood relationships.

This is general practice nowadays.

Puffed up with evil pride like the cruel king sitting on his throne.


Alarming Situation;

We are not in touch with our loved ones because we have a valid reason that we are very busy due to the shortage of time.

It’s quite a bitter reality that our close friends are mobiles, tablets, Television or any other source that connects us with the internet.

We want our generation should follow our norms.

What are we giving to our children?

We start our day by first scrolling the facebook.

We usually finished our breakfast, lunch, and dinner while reading e-mails, and commenting on Twitter, and Instagram.

We play mobile games when we get free instead of giving time to our family and totally forgot how much precious time we have wasted.

Aggression, short-tempering, anxiety, death rate while taking selfies has massively increased.

It’s quite alarming that our way of thinking has entirely changed due to social media addiction.

Unfortunately, we believe what we see without knowing the truth.

We can’t quit that addiction because we are afraid of missing anything on social networking sites.

Whenever I saw a toddler who has been given cell phones or tabs, it shatters me.

I am not against this technology but yes, I am against its harmful use.

It affects physical and mental growth as well as it ruins kid’s behavior.

If we want to get back our inner peace, we need to fix this problem.

Need a Change

We need to change ourselves.

Limit the use of mobile phones.

Switch off the internet at 10. P m and sleep early.

Keep check on internet surfing in teenage kids.

Set timings for the use of phone.

If necessary use landline.

I believe there is still a spark of hope that can bring a positive change and a bright future to this world.
