Yesterday I observed this incident.
I was waiting outside a restaurant in the queue. At that time I observed a family there, which consisted a man, a lady and two kids. The first kid was a girl, her age would be 5 years and the second kid was a 2 years old boy.
After about 10 minutes of waiting, the baby boy started getting restless. He started becoming very cranky and irritant. Shockingly, the mother din’t even bother. It was the girl trying to calm the boy down but he just wouldn’t listen.
Finally the mother got very irritated and to my surpise, she removed her phone and gave it to the kid saying “ye lo tum talking tom khelo” .
That boy was very happy and soaked himself into the phone. The radiating rays affecting his eyes and making him a slave of technology. All this because his mother couldn’t tolerate / handle him. I don’t think before mobiles came children were tackled this way.
The point is who is more a slave of technology or who is mis-using it.?? people say “the coming generation is going to dogs”, who is pushing them into it. No doubt by the age of two, whether a child can talk or not he/ she knows to unlock a phone.
What do u think is this, the over-use of technology ?? Who do u think is more affected and addicted to these gadgets the current generation parents or the kids growing up.?? Is it right to blame the coming generation for being addicted to technology or the root cause are their parents, making them technology dependent ?
