Real Group discussion on “Mobile phone is a paralysis to youngsters mind” (with English Sub-titles)On August 30, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Good morning everyone Morning Mam. Lets have a discussion on Mobile phone is a paralysis to youngsters mind Good morning everyone,my name is Aman Singh and I would like to initiate the GD,the topic is Mobile phone is a paralysis to youngsters mind. There are many examples like in China there are many rehab centers in which more then 40 % of population of China are cured from the addiction of mobiles recently you must have noticed advertisements issued by root authority of India, ministry of roots they conduct the advertisement in public interest that is 50% of the total death were caused during taking selfies. Here I would like to add some points that these mobile phones kills creativity among youngsters. As we all know that now adays even small kids are wasting their whole time in watching video on mobile phones or playing games on them. Even they dont know how to use it,still they manage.They do not explaore their surrounding. They do not go out and have fun like we used to do in our childhood. Also it let people go away from being social animal. Nowadays people are on Facebook,twitter,snapchat but they are not social animal,they do not interact, they hesitate to talk to new people. but on social media they are very active, they feel they are cool and can interact with anyone. Also I feel,it is main cause of generation gap which has increased nowadays to very high level. children are going far away from their parents due to mobile phones and they spend their most of the time on these mobile phones. They do not have time to interact with their parents. I believe these are some of the main reasons that mobile is paralysis to youngster’s mind. I think it is important for everyone to use the technology to use mobile,to interact with your friends and parents. who study in a far place,so its necessary for every one,but we should use in a permissible limit. If we use it in uncontrollable manner,then definitely it will be harmful for us. There are some apps if you install them in your paltop that help you to blink your eyes 15 times in a minute. As everyone uses laptop,desktop and mobile phone. I feel mobile phones have advantages and disadvantages both. but in today’s scenerio there are more disadvantages in comparison to advantages. because of internet,many social sites like facebook has been misused, so I strongly believe that there are many disadvantages of mobiles. Moreover,western culture that we are adopting due to watching video on Youtube or any other sites they are degrading,our culture,our tradition.People nowadays are so much influenced by western culture that there is nothing left as of their own tradition. I agree with your points and would like to add some points,technology/mobile is not good or bad,but the usage of it is. We have adopted western culture and we are misusing mobiles We use social sites only for fun or intercating with our friends and we do not use mobiles for good purpose. Nowadays 70% of the youngsters are distracted by smart phones. Yes I agree with him, people who are not aware about benefits of mobiles,they do not know that they can search lot of things on mobiles. We need to think which things are beneficial for me rather then to check watsapp and facebook all the time. or other sites like instagram, these things disturb everyone in this world. It is really a major problem nowadays,if you go to some browsers,you will find many inappropriate kind of advertising on that that can easily distract any person. So we should avoid them also notify government that this type of sites should be banned. I would like to add some points that mobile phone increases many diseases,one of them is related to eyes. Many youngsters now adays getting eye diseases due to excess use of phones. and many eye defects are there like loss of sight,myopia,hyperopia and it also effects our mind. It creates,stress,anxiety and many types of brain related problems. I agree with you,when we use mobile phones, then they release harmful rays that harm our body organs,such as kidney and heart. and it also causes deadly disease like cancer due to harmful rediations. many small children use smart phones, at their age its not good Our govt should make a strict law and implement in the rural areas and set some camps to make people aware about these things. and we should make people aware that they should focus on exploring themselves to get a job. Here I would like to add some points like in the Kashmir scenerio terrorists are using watsapp and other apps to communicate with other terrorists to launch attacks. So smart phones have enabled these terrorist to complete their duties and attack our army or take revenge on Indians. So I believe that these messaging apps like watsapp or mesanger should be monitored precisely by the authorities. Moreover mobile phones are changing sleeping pattern of people. If someone watches the mobile phones for more then 30 minutes before going to bed,then it will affect sound sleep. even the radiations which he talked about, these radiations have very harmful effect on hippocampus function of our brain, which is responsible for quick reaction. When you think of technology, we are connected with each and everyone in this world through mobile phones. Nowadays we cant imagine our life without mobile phones, so its not that we get illness due to mobile phones,in that case we can stop overusing mobiles. but it is not well said that it is paralysing our life. so when you are using a phone,or you do anything in this world,like he said you have two faces of a coin. dark side and a bright side, so suppose I dont have Smart phone, or Mark Zuckerberg did not have technology or phone in his time,he would not be so modernize that he could create Facebook. So mobile phone is a kind of device which is connecting us to every individual in this world. So you cant imagine life without mobile phone. My cousin lives in Bangalore, when he was 3 years old he knew many poems, every color identify each and every color seperately and he uses mobile all the time. as his parents are working and they do not have time for their kid and that small kid is completely into the mobiles. but that kid has gone away from his parents, though if we compare him with other kids of his age group,he is very intelligent. as he is aware about everything on YouTube,he spends around 80 GB of mobile data every month, he sees videos and he has learned many poems he is a very good surfer on internet and he knowledge of everything. at age of 3,he knows worldwide knowledge only due to utlization of mobile phone internet. that is good thing about mobile as everything has pros and cos just by looking at the disadvantages we can not say that it is paralysis. so behind this the reason is that source from which this child has learnt that how to access internet. that is the important thing, like he said that in rural area people do not have knowledge as to how to utilise internet. so if we organize some campaign or some awareness camps which will tell them how to utilise internet in a productive way. Like nowadays many activities are planned by our govt so that rural people get to learn as to how to use internet or how to have an oppotunity to get a job through internet. Many villages are doing work and are having their orders or tenders through internet so if they are guided in a right direction,then things that we are considering as cons,can change into pros. nowadays its a big problem that people are not aware, and they never want to do things that will benefit their nation. we should try to motivate them so that they learn about patriotism Nowadays if you talk about China or Pakistan,their relations with India is not good. so we should try to solve problem on border like siachen, we should make our youth sensitize about the fact that our soldiers are fighting Youth should learn how to utilise internet to have knowledge and we should make the system like that that it should be upgraded on the higher level, how we can overpower China in terms of technology and we can be more creative. so that we can protect our soldiers and our nation,this way ultimately it is beneficial for India. I have some points to add,I believe it depends on youth to utilize mobile phones or not. If we talk in a positive way,there are many apps that help us in many ways,like GPS, or Youtube to watch motivational or informative videos. as to how to use technology to develop some games or platforms, it also depends on that. But you know the problem of youngsters is that they are overusing mobiles which is really a very harmful thing, as it has been proved that mobile phone’s radiations are causing cancer. Over use of anything leads to bad habit or excess of everything is bad we can say. when you are using anything in a limited way, you could get benefit out of it. so the point is,use everything in a positive way. because when you take phone in your hand,you just need to click one button and you get connected with everyone. You can watch news,or you can learn many things about the world just by one click. Using mobile phone in a positive way enhances our knowledge about every thing. So i do not find anything bad in it.but it deoends on if we use it only in a positive way. When we drive car,we should not use mobile phoen,this is a very clear instruction. but still there are many people who use mobile while driving. that actually cause severe accidents. Moreover the US Govt has taken many steps in this direction. They have made some standard to use or access YouTube and to access the kind of content on YouTube. But in India,there are no such regulations about Youtube,you can post anything and can also use any language in it. and there is no restriction about it.If we try that this type of law should be implimented in India, I think this brings the change. I would like to share an example,few months back there was some content on amazon site that was a doormat which consisted India’s flag on it Its a big thing,no nation is allowed to sell a doormat with a nation’s flag on it. But in India there are no such restrictions or laws to take action on this type of thing nowadays,if we talk about our PM Modi,it is not possible for india to implement such things in India,unless we get support of people. Motive of PM is to have “jan-bhagidari”.It means every citizen of India should go forward to make people aware that they should start any work with themselves if they wish to bring positive change. then move to my family and my society.I should try to bring change myself rather then blaming govt or society. Topic is around the youngsters, so you are deviating topic my dear I find youngsters are using mobile phones very much. I debarred my self from my phone for last 20 days, so I found for last 20 days I am near to my family I share lot of things with my Mom and Dad. When I had my phone with me, for almost 16 hours a day I was using my mobile for chatting or watching videos on YouTube. and then i realised that by excess use of mobiles,I am loosing my whole life. I felt that half of my life has gone in chatting with my friends,thats really bad. To end this topic I would say that every coin has two sides. one positive and another negative.So we need to use mobile phones in a productive manner. so that we can move forward from other countries with the right use of technology. and using it for the benefit on the society. and excess use of everything is bad so use it in a proper and effective manner. so that we reach to the top level of the world.
