Digital invasion, will cell phone life return to the playground?

The world moves forward in the same rhythm with the beginning and the end. When dynamite was invented, it was meant to destroy mountains to build roads, but it killed people – it wasn’t meant to. His father, Alfred Nobel, was shocked. Sad but true, negative use of dynamite has taken over the world. Science is inevitable in today’s world. Science is becoming more dynamic by the day. But if the knowledge of science cannot be turned into wisdom, then it will be difficult to build an ethical society

Mobile packages were once much discussed in the air of Dhaka. Consumers were confused by any company promoting violence. A company announced free hours to talk all night. Young people were seen talking all night on the balconies, roofs of many houses in the city or in the alleys of the neighbourhood.

A group of customers who waited for this particular free hour took advantage of it, it is not helpful or helpful, it can be said that ninety nine percent is useless. After extensive discussion criticism, the authorities have taken a stern stance on such packages. But while the mobile era is over, the alternatives are now simpler. Social media practice now continues all night with wifi connection. Parents are confused about the addiction. Due to this, various crimes that rely on social media are on the rise.

Personal morality is on the wane, lying has now become a fashion. Social and family ties are vulnerable. Three members of the same family. Parents and only child is a girl. All three spend their days doing different activities. At night everyone returned home and everyone was locked in their respective rooms with their cell phones. It also happens that even from the same house father or mother sit down at the table to eat by calling the daughter or calling online. But even that often remains unanswered. Even after completing remote tasks, these internet-driven social media take up a kind of extra time. And it goes on from daylight to sunrise. This is a picture of a house.

Now if you look at every house in the city, you will see that all classes, from babies to children, spend their precious time on this social media. And at the end of the day, frustration mounts. The benefits of a free flow of information are many, but there is a lot of research being done around the world on the drawbacks.

In these two decades of change in the e-world, information has grown tremendously, but literacy has declined exponentially. In times of Corona, there are lessons on the internet all over the world. Corona is over, but smartphone addiction has eaten young college students. Not only the students but also the opposite happened. The parents of the city also have fun with this kind of addiction. Excessive Internet Addiction By avoiding the positive aspects of the virtual world, society is heavy on negative content and we can see its reflection in the cybercrime news in the newspapers.

There are many studies around the world on these negative aspects of the cyber image. The discussion is how to get rid of this addiction. Meanwhile, two events in neighboring India have given us great concern. One is from Pune and the other from Maharashtra. Residents of Bhadgaon village in Maharashtra, India, have declared their ‘independence’. It is not about claiming new territory, this freedom is freedom from the two mediums of digital addiction of the modern age, mobile phone and television.

When Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and other social media are most widely used by the people of India, the declaration of independence is all over the place to get rid of these people of Bhadgaon. The inhabitants of this village decided together and declared “independence” to release for an hour and a half. Every evening at 7 o’clock in the evening the siren goes off in the village. And immediately all televisions and cell phones went off. Siren sounded at 8:30 PM.

This means that television and mobile phones can be switched on. About three thousand people live in the village of Bhadgaon in the Sangli district of Maharashtra state, India. Most of them are farmers and sugar factory workers. The chairman of the village council here, Vijay Mohit, told the media that on August 14, the day before India’s Independence Day, we had a meeting in the village and decided that we had to stop this addiction.

From the next day, all televisions and cell phones were turned off by sirens. Regarding the response, Vijay Mohit went on to say that it was not very easy for the Gram Parishad to get everyone to agree on this decision. When the proposal was initially discussed, many considered it a stalemate. Then the village council gathered the women of the village. Although they watch a lot of series, they agree with this proposal.

After that, another meeting was held in the village. There it was decided that a siren would be placed on the village temple. They had to make this decision to compensate for the loss of education to children due to Corona in the coming days. This village committee has seen in their experience that the corona epidemic has made children dependent on online classes on television and mobile phones.

When the educational institutions opened this year, the students went back to school and university. But after returning, the children sit with their mobile phones and read or watch TV. Many adults are also working on these devices without talking to each other. It was not easy to implement this decision. Initially, when the sirens blared, councilors and some small groups in the village went door to door asking people to turn off televisions and cell phones.

‘Digital fasting’ is an awareness of families to get involved in quality activities. This is a foundation to reduce dependence on online activities. Adolescents can use the Internet as a temporary escape from psychological stress. This can lead to their gradual isolation from personal social interactions, family interactions, and constructive extracurricular activities.

But if you turn off the television and mobile phone for such a short time, does that have any advantages? In response, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience, professor of clinical psychology. Manoj Kumar Sharma said that during the Corona period, the amount of online time among people has increased enormously. Dr. Sharmar and his colleagues surveyed 682 people (495 women and 187 men) from July to December 2020. Studies have shown that excessive use of the Internet at work increases the risk of developing problems, which can lead to stress.

There is a risk of a lot of harm to adolescence. Adolescents can use the Internet as a temporary escape from psychological stress. This can lead to their gradual isolation from personal social interactions, family interactions, and constructive extracurricular activities. Hema Sane, a retired botany professor from Pune, talks about her nature-based lifestyle where electricity and energy are factors all over the world. Hema Sane has been living without electricity since birth.

However, this is an exception. But why has he discredited this discovery of science with a doctorate for eighty years? Hema Sane is alone with this life of hers. Your my life is full of mechanics. Without electricity we are powerless. Without YouTube and television, children make their parents restless. No one can work without these media now.

At that moment, Hema Sane thinks she is saving nature. Leaving it for future generations without using it. Without the use of electricity, the man wrote twenty books on various subjects by the light of the lantern. The world moves forward in the same rhythm with the beginning and the end. When dynamite was invented, it was meant to destroy mountains to build roads, but it killed people – it wasn’t meant to. His father, Alfred Nobel, was shocked. Sad but true, negative use of dynamite has taken over the world.

Science is inevitable in today’s world. Science is becoming more dynamic by the day. But if the knowledge of science cannot be turned into wisdom, then it will be difficult to build an ethical society. Way back when, at the very beginning of the invention of the computer, there was a study on how computers could help young people get addicted to porn. After much research they said, very easy.

The computer must be in an open area. Having a computer in a room will increase its negative usage. It is said, now smartphones are passing from hand to hand. How to stop the moral decay of society in this situation? In that case, the digital fasting of Bhadgaon village in Maharashtra may be a new thought. At least our children can take time off and return to the playground. Adults gather on the balcony or in the garden, dropping the phone screen and chatting with a plate full of candy.
