Misuse of Mobile Phone
In the fast pace of 21st century, technology is the part of everyone’s life. Things have become much more convenient. In the past, people faced many problems to perform simple calculation and day to day task but with the invention of mobile phone everything is just one tap away.
The world has turned into global village, anyone can communicate with each other, even if they live poles apart. Mobile phones have brought people closer and made things easy. The tasks which were complicated and time taking are now performed within the blink of an eye. Another important aspect is its use in the field of education, now the students have access to numerous amounts of websites where they can easily gather information regarding their subjects. With all the positive aspects and brighter side of mobile phone there are many negative aspects that can’t be ignored.
Mobile phones have their own pros and cons. The biggest dilemma of our society is that mobile phones are now accessible to everyone even children of age 5 or 7 are also found immersed in the usage of mobile phones. The biggest misuse of phone is for the social media which has become very popular in our youth. You can find almost anyone on different social media platforms where young people are indulged in competing with each other for material things. Everyone wants to capture a picture of anything they eat or buy and later they post it on the social media just to flaunt off their social status, due to which many other people who belong to the lower strata of society gets involved into inferiority complex and face depression in their life.
Excessive usage of mobile phone has adverse effects on the health of people. Children at a very young age are affected by weak eyesight. While sleeping at night people keep their phones closer to them and the harmful rays of the mobile phone radiations affects their brain, as a result brain tumor or brain cancer is becoming more common in the population. People spend their free time on mobile phones instead of taking rest which adds more fuel to the fire of medical problems.
Apart from health, mobile phones are also affecting the relationships. In the past people used to meet and greet each other on special occasions such as birthdays, New Year’s, eid festive etc but now all they do is send a message through their mobile phones, due to which physical contact is lost as a result when people are in dire need no one really approaches them. A certain distance is created between family members because when they sit together instead of spending time with each other, they spend their time on useless and baseless chats on mobile phone.
There is a beautiful saying, “Realize it before you lose.” This quotation is relevant in the 21st century as we all are so deeply involved in our gadgets like mobile phones that we do not even realize the negative affect that it is bringing in our life and in our society as a whole. It is the hour of need when we should know the importance of reality, so that we may shift our focus from virtual world to real world. Excess of everything is bad; if it is used in a correct manner we can enjoy our life as well as stabilize our relationships for a healthy future.
