Technologies are blessings, no doubt. Everyday I find myself lucky with the sweet services of computer, internet, mobile….along with bunch of other electronic appliances…. But at the same time, I find some frustrating scenario around me. Which is might be depending on the proper use of technology. While the handling insecure, it causes dangers in many many ways just like it cause comfort to us….
Let me come to the point I want to focus on. I would tell you two scenarios.
I have a cousin of 14 years… All the time busy with computer games. He has one or two gaming partner from their neighbors… and that’s it! He is impossible to accompany his Mom to visit to any relative’s home. His attitude is becoming more and more painful gradually. Whenever he is told to stay away from computer, he start breaking glasses and does some terrible activities at home. Sometimes his Dad manages him from outbursts…. but it lasts moments only! That day aunt was crying sitting next to me for her child. I just felt how pain is in her,but I can do nothing. My cousin isn’t any psycho patient, but surely he is freak with computers and gaming. He has no friends other than one or two even school! Don’t mix with others at the classroom! I feel sympathy for him, more for his parents 😦
This is about a girl, my neighbor (not in university area!) and relative of a distant relation 😐 . Her age most probably 16. Did terrible result in Secondary exam. Her parents couldn’t find any reason of that because she had private tutors in all the subjects! She started crying to her father for bringing her a cell phone in reference to her friends.. they all have it! Like all Dad in world, being melted he brought a brand new cell phone. After few days, she was found to be found to be talking over phone in the midnight. Later investigation resulted that chatting over cell phone made her friends(!!) with whom she even met several times… The same breakdown scenario to the parents… sobbing… crying… on and on.. no perfect solution…..
We have several classmates, who cannot mix with us for many complexities in them. We tried hard to let them learn the sweet university life, but such psychologically-ill guys never bothered us. They have got a solely different concepts and views on life and friends. The huge open and wide campus failed to be a blessing for them for even a minute to mix with people and to melt the glacier of superior complexity regarding their rich family background…
Though these people have very few moments to pass with friends, very few words to chat in campus, they are very frank in virtual world! In a social networking site like facebook, they just rock (!!) with some virtual friends. For this reason, in a reply to our a motivation, one of those unsocial friends said,” I have many good friends in facebook, how can you tell me unsocial?” 👿
Gosh! There is not even 1% possibility for them to be social 😯 But these people thought themselves so much social and smart to communicate by just passing few times on photo sharing and commenting on status updates!! 🙄
Not only them, I had to think about some other specimen (friends and neighbors) who are frequent and smart in virtual world of internet. strangely enough, most of them are so introvert and has very little capability to mix with people.
What is cause of such problems actually? How these things can be resolved? I can’t draw a conclusion 😦 ……. Can you?
