Pandemic education systems are going through longer and darker tunnels with no signs of any light at the end of unknown. Education system were failing its children long before pandemic forcing them out of their classrooms, for more bucks. Only about half of our ten-year-olds can read and understand a simple story. Last time children participated in internationally comparable tests, they ranked almost last out of 74 countries, inward-looking is fine only if you’ve gained real knowledge and ready to explore and question everything remaining Geo-neutral.
Parents have right and responsibility to protect vulnerable kids from illegal hyper profiteers cum masked advert hunks posed as virtually enlightening guardians cum smart techies. Just as celebs have right to sell raw parts, beauty, love, anger, rape, comedy, apps, porn, etc.. We need to question the buyers, moderators, media channels and business pros who’re desperately advertising violence, mobile addiction, nudity, religious extremism, erotica as art / culture / entertainment on public platforms. Last thing you need is traffickers, pimps, child pornographers, spying apps, exotic strippers and glorified prostitutes teaching sex education nuances in schools or even to adults chanting development, progress and modernity. Undressing a porn-star on MG Road for eyeballs is art of human development OR merely exposing common adult biological stuff and tagging junks as mainstream cool? The real artists should stand-up and revolt before community leaders, radicals, extremists or commoners.
Some liberal junkies may not mind its future generations with full dating mating freedom of wild jungle as sign of social growth, why should all (especially the young commoners) be bombarded with such crude artistic texts or tantalizing visual ideas for bucks, made by mediocre ad hunks to hallucinate teens and kids. Internet Videos, Mobile Apps, Cinema and TV are making a substantial contribution to the creation of unkind, volatile ethos. Do the advertiser cronies have permission of parents for such widespread brainwash? Or they’re bulldozing to become illegal digital guardians of all Gen XYZ mobile APPified outputs, with state sponsored, Nazi-nationalism, conformity and uniformity terror? Youngsters hopes and aspirations for the future, attitudes to relationships – familial, parental, cultural, romantic, sexual, etc, are all inextricably linked with what they see, hear and learn from TV, Mobile Apps or Internet brands.
An international survey on children and media violence by UNESCO underlined TV, Mobile Apps and cinema’s dominant role in the lives of young people around the world and its impact on the development of aggressive behavior, paving not so celeb-ways of strong debates. Did kamasutra or love and sex gods taught us to pose / tease on public streets / platforms or just for discreet pleasure indoors? Coming to these revolutionary body art showcases, how will masses safely reproduce without such sunny कपिध्वजः saviors showing right erotic ways and kamajayi mudras in public? Should all such hellish human desires and dreams be forcefully fulfilled by hook or crook? In reality, sex is just a mundane activity like breathing for most humans, population not sky-rocketing to 9 billion+ with aliens or invincible super humans mating on earth?
With reinvention of mass media by desperate cronies through TV, cinema, mobile, Internet and Online games / apps, children and teenagers are exposed to increasingly higher doses of aggressive imagery and other fear-mongering content including raw sex adverts, political bigotry, cultural twists, religious blasphemy, quick money lures… In many countries, there is an average of 5 to 10 aggressive acts per hour of TV (Cable, Digital, Internet, Zooms, Live Streams, Amazon, Games, HotStar, ColdStar..). Violence among youth is also on the rise, making it plausible to correlate the two, though primary causes for aggressive behavior in children are to be found in family environment, and the social and economic conditions in which they are raised. Violence has always been an ingredient of children’s adventure and suspense movies and stories, what is critical is the dominance and extreme it has reached.
