Face of world is in a different mood. We all are attached to digital world in one or another mode. Due to immense pressure from social media, everyone is busy with so-called digitally connected. Human to human touch is reducing day by day, and digital world is leading in every nook and corner. Especially in India, people spend more time than the sleep on the same.
We are so much advanced in all directions - sea bed to moon and other unreachable destinations. Still yet to find MH370 Malaysian flight. What is so difficult? Recently in Sri Lanka, suicide bombers killed more than 300 and injured about 500 people. What went wrong? What happened to current digital intelligence? My recent visit to Sri Lanka made me and believe their love and culture - totally down to earth. They suffered in war more than 32 years. The country is just shaping up. The whole world started to love the country, especially theirs warmth gesture and cleanliness. I was amazed to witness their approach towards nature and preservation of age-old culture.
Why cannot we come out of so-called extremists or fundamentalists? What they want to make in this digital world? Now I am really worried and thinking, due to digital world, people are losing the faith in their own religion and becoming more and more fanatics. My heart goes to those who died and got injured in the recent attack in New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Both places are known for peace. The attack on humanity is not tolerable and proves that still there is hatred among human beings in this digital world.
Our elders always said to present generation, “You all are glued to social network and believe untrue stories and act and adjust your life accordingly.” I completely believe in the same and being passed my childhood before real digital era, spent days in darkness and watching dark TV (Black and White),being the first 14 inch TV brought in our home. Thanks to my elder brother to decide to install the same. That was almost the first TV around the village. Many people used to come to watch Mahabharata serial on Sunday. It was amazing and fun-filled, no upper caste or lower-caste, no discrimination, because those days, we are physically connected not digitally, and everything was realistic, not poisoned stories to reap benefits. Still the world has not come to an end. We can practice the same without any barriers. Why youths are turning towards untrue nature? No one understands that at the end, your neighbor and close relationships works. Then why we cannot love one another and live peacefully?
One should understand the reality behind wrong motivations. Think first who is taking care at difficult situations and who will do charity without religion barriers. One who understands others’ situations and helping them will never fall into digital world affray. It is like politicians winning the election and forgetting the place where they are supposed to work for people and still educated mass is going behind and supporting them, basically with wrong intentions. At the moment you cannot question anyone’s authority. Everyone is digitally smart with digital device not physically. We all are busy with touch and not in touch with others. We lost reading habit, lost sleep, and lost connection with person next to us and neighbors. Everything is digital. Due to artificial intelligence and digital world, many jobs have been lost in the world. Physical stores are closing since there is no more interaction left for touch and feel or see and believe though most of the time one fails to get good service in digital world.
Social networks are mostly spreading wrong and hatred stories and news to misguide common people’s mind. Who is getting benefits? Why they are doing it? As per my knowledge, everything is for power and to enjoy the moment. Sending unwanted messages in social media and indulging others in wrong direction is to be stopped and it is only possible when we start to love one another. As per our beliefs, every human reborns (depends on the personal faith). Think for a moment. After our death, we are born in the religion we hated in the current life. Think in depth and meditate the same for few days. You will totally change in your approach to others. My request and suggestions to all social media active users, not to send religion messages. Rather send messages uniting others without looking at caste and creed.
One should think out of the box and pledge not to believe digital world and what is all happening unless and until you see through your own eyes. As a human being, everyone has the right to practice their faith without others pressurizing. All are equal. If we born poor, it is not our problem, but if we die poor, something is wrong within us. Stop practicing wrong and provoking faith. God is not to a particular person or religion. All are man-made circumstances to get the benefits. The reason for the above I am stressing is, if you believe in digital world, why cannot you believe in yourself and come out to love one another. At the end of the day, all are human beings with different colors and cultures practiced according to the surrounding and nature. Hence, we cannot go against the surrounding and nature. It is so simple being in India. Villages do not practice western culture. Nature will not support and future will not work in favor. All are temporary.
We all are copying and forwarding as we receive. Let us think about others before us in daily life which will definitely help us shape up future generations without discrimination of caste and creed. Let us not to fall into wrong path created by others for their survival benefits. The best thing is not to misguide others for our benefit and survival. We need to pay our interest before we live as a human. So let us practice humanity and not artificial or digital relationships.
