From dawn till dusk Kashmir is losing the blossoms everyday. Seeing deaths here seems a part and parcel of life now but earlier the reasons were quite different. Well everyone shall taste death as per the Al-Quran and death chases us but quite astonishingly now we are chasing the death. Committing suicide is a Sin the fact everyone is aware off.Still some souls hug it. Can we tag them as Brave ones or Morons?
Well we can’t be judgmental because we are walking in our shoes only but we have to still call it wrong because when Holy Quran has declared that it is a Sin who are we to tag it with a brave act.
But there are certain points where we have to focus on that is the reasons or we can say the causative factors:
- Why suicide the only option?
- Why is there no hand who can convince them that the bent in the road can’t be the end of the road?
- Why they choose a world free of humans?
Are the Humans scary enough so that they can push anyone to the extinct where Suicide is the only option left?
Yes, we are responsible somehow give me a fraction of time to explain it:
With the advancement of technology there is no doubt in saying that we have seen ease with life and we have been taught and we have heard it several times that with all the advancement we are saving our time yeah you read it correctly we are saving our TIME. But does it seem like this the time has actually been saved.Well we all will agree yes it has been saved and then we keep admitting this to our nears and dears sorry I am short of time, See you next time, I will finish this and get back to you, definitely next time blah blah the excuses we often use. So where does this time go? Hmm it got back to the technology we created for saving time. You didn’t’ got it right? Well technology gave us everything it summoned the world in our hands just by clicks we get everything but it did really take one thing away from us that is Our families, Friends all the dearer ones. How?
Yeah chatting and talking on phone is alternative to the time that we used to spend in person with each other. Sometimes its not just a talk it’s the facial expression, it’s the safest lap, its that laughter of friends, it’s the one saying c’mon we will get through this together. It’s the quality time spending with some sound minds rather than being on social platform and acting like talking with Elizabeth and Biden and discussing some important policies with them. C’mon get out of your fantasies.
So should we consider Social platforms a reason to growing suicides. Yeah partially we can because we kept scrolling for hours but we didn’t give a little of time to the mentioned ones. Another Reason why the Social Media look I am not the one opposing the Social media it has lot to explore also.We get to know everything in seconds but the way we are dealing it is definitely heading towards a disaster. Particularly this generation is using Social media as bread and butter for their everyday life and end up falling in the trap of bad relations. You get emotionally attached and then end up in vain. Then begins the reason to Suicide because you are not connected with people and you have no one to express it all of your time you invested in Social Platforms instead spending with some humans. This is the price You will pay.
And the other reason very hard to ignore yes Drugs. Being a Medical student the drugs which are being abused by this generation particularly the OPOIDS are very hard to get rid off. Whenever we have to prescribe such medicines in some extreme cases not normally we have to keep in view the proper dosage and its poisoning is very dangerous and its antidote NALOXONE is hardly or not available at all. Taking such drugs which even medical professionals hardly prescribe and taking these without any knowledge is what leads us to disaster. Yeah OPOIDS will surely take away all your pain, heartaches and blesses you with a sense of being in like Heaven with all your kingdom,yeah opioids can do it but don’t get addicted because i described them in a funny way. Getting addicted to opioids is like calling your death.
To the summary of the scenario we should rectify ourselves:
•Spend more time in person rather on social apps.
•Educate our generation not make them literate only.
•Look for the ones who need our help.
•Awareness programmes for the drug abuse.
