Social Network Fever: Do you think we really need to become so social?



I consider my self  lucky  to  have  witnessed  an  admission  interview that somehow  gave  me a  strong  Idea  of  where  we are actually  standing today.The three year old  was  asked about his  hobby and  the  answer  was  amazing “My hobby  is  watching  cartoon and when  I will grow up  newspassing will be my hobby like  my elder brother”.’News passing’ what is  it all about? This  answer of  this  question  was  then  as important as  the  name of  the  person  who stole  Tagore’s nobel.The lady  interviewing  the  kid  asked his parents  about their  son.She came  to know  that the elder  brother of  the  child  is a student  of  their rival  school  at 9th standard.She immediately  assumed that he  must  be the  student representive of  some English  daily.

”Jounalism” was    tagged  not-understandable  for  the  kid  who  wanted  “newspassing “ to become his hobby.The  embarrassment  that  covered  the  couple’s face somehow  gave  a  hint  about  the fact that  the  assumption  of  the  Lady  differed a lot  from  the real  story.The interview got over  and  they  just left the room ,the child  was  too  cute to be not pamperd  .Luckily  toffes never  abandone  my  purse .As they  were  walking towards  the  gate  “Excuse me” said  I  and  the child turned back  “this  is for you” I  gave him  2 toffees.He  immediately flashed  a  smile that  could melt anyone’s heart.” So mr. future  newspasser shall see you  on  tv reading news or  read you  articles on  newspaper” he  readily  replied  something  that sounded a lot  like “Facebook”.The embarrasement  on  his parent’s face was  truelly pathetic.

This  is  the story  of  a  class 9 student becoming news passer and  a  three  year  old’s inspiration.
Social  network these days ,in particular Facebook ,seems  to be  the  newest  way  of todays  youth  to  communicate  with  each other.Life outside  facebook and  sharing  outside whatsapp seems  so  colourless  as if  life  hardly  exisits outside  these .Well keeping  the  sarcasm ,you  can  say  social  network  nowdays is  the  the place  you  can  know about current affairs.If  you  are  quite  a  social  person  you  will  befriend  every Tom-Dick-n-Harry from  different  parts  of  the country  followed  by  the inie-minnies-n-minnies.If  you  are  a  guy  the  social  networks  are always  at your service  .


You  can  follow  any  girl here be it  a celevrity  be  just  someone  not  even  worth remembering.If you are  a  girl  nomatter  what  kind of  phone you  are  accessing  the  social  network  from,nomatter  how  poor  you  are you can  add  a  princess prefix to your  name.If nobody  every  found  you  cute  ,nobody ever addressed you angel you  have free licsence here.

So far  people used television  to  know weather update now days if  a girl updates “Awww it  rain..choo chweet m luvin it- near Kolkata”

 if she  is  average looking but  a  great flaunter atleast  guys from  different part of  the city and the state would know about  the  rain . If see  satisfies the   criteria  of  being  addressed  beautifull  or  cute  or  atleast  cool ,the rain  tagged  status would  be beautified  with  comments like  “Wow   baby    you love  rain  J me too.”

Voting  is    our  responsibility and  news  papers run  behind stars  to  click  them  with vote mark  on their  fingers.But social  network  is a  place where  everyone  flauts  their  selfie after voting  .Social  network  is  a  place where people convey how  excited they are  after facing  the    earthquake  tremor .Instead of  getting  terrified  they  feel  so  damn  excited.
If  you  are a social  person  you  will have friends  who  loves to  discuss  personal  life throung  their  facebook  status.


Those  guys /girls  have lots  of  friends  to sympathize them  too.If you  are  a  girl  you will receive friend request  from people  who are afraid ,better to say  ashamed of  revealing  their  names .

.But they  kind of  write  all  their  agony  on their facebook  wall.Inspired by “I guess  my life  is an  open  book  anyone  can  take a look  “ .

Clearly  I  would love  to thank  them  for clearing my  misconception .I know  a  lot of people  who  are model by  proffesion.Some of them get offers  for  sad  roles.They go  for  those  photoshoots  then  those photos are  finally  sold and  shared over the  network  to  convey  the  feelings  like  heartbreak ,emptiness  etc.Those pictures are actually shared uploaded by  some ill at ease people  who loves to  convey  their feeling  by  those picture.

It  was quite an  interesting ponder session,the social  network  conveys love through Youtube video,feeling  through  pictures.But  some feelings do  remain unconveyed.The  girl whose best  friend is  instagram hardly knows  how  the  freshly showered  herbs  looks after  an  april shower.How  amazing the  wet clay  smells  after rain.The guy  who spends so many hours on criminal and candy crush  saga  deprives himself of  the football matches  the  local boys are crazy about.The metallica  crazy music lovers  keep  posting  youtube links but  fails  to realize  the  heavenly  feeling  that the sound of conch shell sounds

It is true  that  technology  is  getting  advanced  and  social network  is  a part of  life now.But  nowdays  the priority  of social  network  is  crossing  the limit and  hampering  life.

“It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple.”

“It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple.” - 
Rabindranath Tagore                                                                     
Now days  whenever you are online popular  social  networks seem  to run  a  new  trend "Happiness is".The  truth is Happiness is an enduring positive psychological stage of           mind.Both  happiness and sorrow  resides  within us .We  are  the ones who  choose to be happy  or unhappy.It is something you create now, today. Waiting for something to change in order to be happy is waiting to live your life. It is not what happens to you that counts. It is how you react to what happens to you. It is your attitudeWhen you adopt a positive attitude, life becomes a rewarding adventure instead of something to get through.



Finding happiness is about finding your true self.Everyone wants to be happy and no one wants to suffer, but very few people understand the real causes of happiness and suffering. We tend to look for happiness outside ourselves, thinking that if we had the right house, the right car, the right job, and the right friends we would be truly happy. We spend almost all our time adjusting the external world, trying to make it conform to our wishes.


While simplicity is not always minimalism .Simplicity can be difficult to achieve in a world that clamors for "more! more! more!" But simplicity opens the way to the center of the heart--the still place where quiet, healing, and a still small voice await. Simplicity is making elegant choices, treasuring precious moments, and valuing that which is of eternal worth.Simplicity is singleness of heart, focused on the essentials of life, rather than being distracted by our desires and fears. Simplicity is a celebration of the heart--a chance to touch eternity in a moment of meditation. Simplicity is finding abundance in the small things.The singer opens her mouth and the pure tone floats out freely … and its simple beauty goes straight to the heart of the listener and nestles thereEveryone is born with a song in the heart. Every person has a unique and wonderful gift to give. The pure life potential beats in every heart. And pure potential waits to be expressed.

Teenagers Are Not Escapists,Not Even Irresponsible

Tagore said "ওরা অকারণে চঞ্চল"(Restless are they for  no reason  )

This  line  vividly describes teenagers .They often  do  things  that seem irresponsible  to  their  parents  or guardians.PEARL S. BUCK said — 'The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible -- and achieve it, generation after generation.' Between being kids and adults, the teenage mind can be a maze of intense emotions. Parents seldom understand the dilemmas, adventures, fears and angst that go with this phase of life, although they too were teenagers not long ago. Infact  they have much to share,much  to be explained and  much  to be consoled.As i sat down  to write about them,i realised i actually  have no clue what  to share.I remember when  i entered high school  the biggest question mark  that  all time trouble me always ended with a simple question," does adults  find it difficult too?"

I must say a teenager's life  is more difficult.They kind of remember the  number of  all  those friends  whose names  are unacceptable to their parents.The boy who is dealing with derivations problems and binary derivatives is more interested about  the girl who sits next to his friend in  the tution class.The girl who is depressed due to some hormonal skin problem  is left with no  other option  other  than  accepting it.


Most of the time, parents don't give them the chance to explain why they do what they do and they don't listen,

 which causes a whole lot of misunderstanding. Also, these misunderstandings clouds society's judgment on 



our 

their academic

 as well. If someone sees a teen in gang attire, we automatically assume that they don't give a

 damn about school when the kid could be an honor roll student on his way to some league of brilliance .






Teenage is an age where one gets

 confused about the simplest decisions.Even when not willing to do anything 

wrong many a times teenagers do it UNKNOWINGLY.At such times others need to understand them instead of 

rewarding them with the word ' IRRESPONSIBLE '! This is the stage where one needs real support mostly from 

their parents,friends become a very imp part of their life...And one becomes really crazy even about  small things.

They  are not perfect but they  do need our support to achieve perfection.Nobody is born perfect even  our 

parents were not .We are adults we  can  controll our emotions  we can  understand  how much  we  need  to 

convey ,with age  we  learn  to choose  the person  we  convey our  problems.We often  fail to understand 

when  the  person we still categorise as a kid  has attained the agey when  they are no longer kids not even 

adults. They are  restless  for no  reason ,confused about simple things and crazy about things that hardly 

matters.

They  are neither  irresponsible nor escapist .
