Science is like a double edged sword, and it brings a bomb and a bouquet. It depends on how an individual uses it . The ever growing technology is likely to have its toll, but it all depends on individuals how prudently they are going to use it..
I notice every day 3 out of five people I come across are busy with their mobile phones, talking, texting, listening to music or sharing their phone with someone and watching something.
"A lot of people keep fiddling with their phones everywhere at malls or clinics, schools, theaters, parks and other public places. The younger generation is also also hooked to a mobile, though it is given to them for their safety.
The other day three young girls all in their party wear were getting into a parked auto and all of the three were getting with one eye and one hand on their cell phones. I was shocked , first of ll they were not attentive to see the face of the driver, and they were not even aware of their surroundings . How can they be so? So many incidents happen in Bangalore with all, especially women and girls with the auto drivers.
I see a young mother everyday talking with one hand on the mobile and the other pushing her child's pram and does not even bother to exercise caution while crossing the road?
Either she should stop attending to the phone or stop moving with the child , both not done. I do not know what is more important to her.
Is talking or texting is more important than anything in life when your senses were supposed to be alert? Due to their indifference, if something happens, they would not hesitate to shift the blame on the auto driver.
It has been a practice to engage oneself as soon as getting into an auto. It is not a right way, one should keep looking around to know the route, familiarize the route, and if the driver is a gentleman, he might not take you for granted, but if he is a scoundrel, he would keep going around and may charge you more, might even plan something ahead to harm you, or threaten you.
One can take down the driver's name, registration number any other details of the auto for further course of action in the event of any unpleasant happenings.
Many engage in conversations over the mobile while walking, thus they do not know what's happening and and their in alert positions gives birth to crime.
At home the scenario is different, earlier each one had a book to read nowadays it's each one with a mobile phone and a laptop, tablet, I pad, I pod etc.....
There is hardly any conversation taking place and there is no socialization within and outside the family.
Recently a mother's addiction to mobile phone has led her son to emotional imbalance. He felt affected and neglected. This habit of the parents takes the toll on the time they spare for their children. Parents should decide on how much time they are going to spend on their kids.
Parents as far as possible should frame some rules to be followed by all members in the family and see that it's done by all.They should be role models and need to prioritize, have clear time limits, and stick to them at all cost.
Only god can save these people as they have kept their reasoning power and brain at home.
