A recent story in the Hindu Business line about a Chinese dying after a three day marathon in cyber cafe. really shook me. According to a Chinese daily newspaper about 14 per cent of china’s estimated internet users are addicted to cyber games.
close at home In India in colleges the youth spent most of the time at popular websites. why is it the reason is not far to seek off. The new technology attracts the youth as the old people by and large take time to understand it. so the new technology gives the youth a sense of importance and freedom . They also get praise from the media as tech savy this also boost the image.
But they fail to understand that their health is affected . They fail to get any excercise as they play only virtual games. constant viewing affects the eyes and alsp create chronic back pain for some.
so folks let us use this new technology with prudence and enjoy it rather than become addict to it.
