We may decide to travel the right path and reach the ultimate destination of knowledge power and truth.Or we may choose the wrong direction and expose ourselves to all kinds of vices. Name any aspect of human life education, business, entertainment, travel, sports etc and you”ll see the profound impact the Internet has on it.There are different ways of tackling the situation.
At the individual level, parents and guardians can avail of content-control software to block offensive websites on individual computers or networks.
At the risk of repetition one must reiterate that the best safeguard against the abuses of the Internet is one’s character.
The internet is easily accessible to everyone because it is inexpensive and can be afforded by most.
While some consider it as a blessing others regard it as a curse, because the internet like everything else in the world has a good and a bad side to it.
There are parents who complain that the Internet has swept their children off their feet, so much so that they do not seem to be interested in anything else.
They ignore their studies, parents, social responsibilities and even ignore their health by not playing enough outdoor and indoor games.A web search engine can provide the needed material just at a click of a button and no matter which remote corner of the world you are in, the Internet will keep you side by side of the latest developments in your area of interest.As with every new technology there are those who speak high of the Internet and there are those who portray it in an unfavorable source of knowledge.That is not to say that it does not have multiple other uses as well: one can avail of its services to bank, to plan and book holidays, to buy railway or aeroplane tickets, to keep in touch with one’s friends and make new ones, to share one’s thoughts with others and get their feedback on them, to chat, to play online games, to run an individual, social or political campaign, to create one’s own circle of like-minded people …the list is yet to be exhausted, but it is surely already large enough to explain why, more and more, people all around the world are getting hooked to the Internet.The one of the main reasons that many people blame is that there is no sense of censorship in the world of the internet.Without censorship many things spin out of control.In other words, the Internet can act like an addictive drug.Is it possible that the same thing was said about television not too many years ago?Character-building now seems to have gone out, perhaps because it has become a more complicated subject than it ever was.In a diverse, democratic and globalised society like urban India is today, numerous value systems overlap, and it is difficult to bring up children on a single, fixed set of values. Internet-addiction can only be overcome by exercising self-control, but that is an art that the children must learn.
