Ruining the minds
Facebook needs a reality check from parents and teachers'
MODERATION BY FARHAN SHAH
The unfortunate valley of Kashmir is surrounded by ills and evils on the social, cultural and specifically political front. The beauty of Kashmir is undoubtedly eye catching but Kashmiris from time to time have fallen into the trap set by the political situations generally, but often by their own ignorance and lack of wisdom. Kashmiri brain is very fertile and is receptive enough to absorb various scientific changes that take place day in and day out. The best example is the introduction of Facebook wherein the opportunity becomes available for a person to speak his heart out. It must be said that such advancements are fruitful means of communication but Kashmiris are in the habit of opting for the negative and skipping the positive.
Internet is an ocean from which pearls of wisdom could be extracted but Kashmiris make use of it to kill time wastefully and engage in misadventure, thereby leaving the beautiful and inviting the ugly. The learning community has been deeply infected and from a 5th standard chap to a university scholar, everyone indulges in this act that does more harm than good.
A razor can sharpen a pencil but make a finger bleed as well, as for Kashmiris it is the latter. Inventions certainly give exposure but too much of exposure exposes to unwanted things which tarnish his personality and contaminate his mind. Parents and teachers should justify their responsibility and ensure discipline among the children. If the Facebook mania is left unchecked, the fabric of Kashmiri culture will be gnawed and we shall produce a race of nitwit Kashmiris without any sense of modesty and morality.
