The fall of YouTube: Introducing the Trashy Side of YouTube

The fall of YouTube has begun and some of us has not noticed it yet. Thus, I think, more than anything else, it is my moral duty to bring into light the side of the YouTube which has fallen straight into a dark, logic less, dungeon. People still watching such garbage makes the situation more alarming than ever!

It’s Everyday Bro, the title says. I look at the number of views to decide if I should click on it or not. The number makes me gasp. The video has garnered 72 million views. I decide, I must watch this video. This is the story of how I wasted 3:41 minutes in my life. And it is the story of how I stumbled on the garbage-ridden side of YouTube.

Meet the Paul’s, Team ten, KSI and numerous YouTubers who have gifted the internet trash. They create dozens of videos where they supposedly “roast” each other because they have “beef” with them. The fights between these immature kids have resulted in millions and millions of views being generated and lots of time being wasted. In the name of vlogging, YouTubers today create fake fights with each other, waste money in buying cars and other expensive gadgets, make fake pranks, react to videos and so on. The best part of all these fights are the so-called disstracks. Disstracks garner views like no other video. “It’s Everyday Bro “was in fact a disstrack by a YouTuber made on his girlfriend. Now you may ask me, why am I so riled up by stupid acts if they are as dumb as I claim them to be.

In today’s world, anything is acceptable. Many parents do not know how to draw the line when it comes to their children. The current generation learns from its environment more than any other source. These children learn from their friends and from the internet/TV more than anyone else because their parents work for jobs, which start in the morning and end late at night (considering only the Indian middle class scenario). Parents give their children whatever they want to compensate for their absence at home. Without anyone at home (because nowadays traditional joint family system is void), children are prey to the internet and social media sites. With people like the Paul’s and other YouTubers who corrupt the internet with fake fights and extravagant spending, children get influenced in the wrong way. They think that getting extravagant gadgets and being in gangs helps their social standing. They fail to see the difference between fake fights and fake pranks and end up using social media sites to abuse the rival gang. What makes me more upset is the fact YouTube also does not distinguish between content and monetarily supports anyone with a lot of views on the internet.

Children are young. Their minds are fertile and reap the fruit of any seed sown in their mind. Be it good or bad, they fail to see things the way an adult sees it. Which is why protecting them is so important. Children do not realize how YouTubers think of them. They do not understand that they are just cash-cows to YouTubers for buying their merchandise and giving them views. Parents also don’t know how to say no to their kids. What worries me the most is how we are normalizing these kinds of behavior.

Today, literally everyone is making disstracks and roasting one another for the views. I wish YouTube learns to censor the rubbish on their website and monetize content that isn’t negative and destructive. More than that I wish everyone had the common sense to choose good content from bad.  And I wish Children would realize how they are fooled by their so called “idols”. I wish they knew that they are fooled into buying merchandise and supporting dim-witted YouTubers.

If things continue the way they are, one need never worry about getting tanned cause the future will surely be dark as the night sky.

Andha Yug (The Blind Age) – Dharamvir Bharati

Because a War procreates none, but losers and carnage all around!

One of the most influential plays I have ever read!
// http://c.amazon-adsystem.com/aax2/assoc.js

Every word, every phrase of this play is so true that I could literally feel how morally wrong our age has become. Why the present age is the age of darkness and why humans are losing their calm is beautifully answered in this incredible play.

Andha Yug (The Blind Age) is a well-crafted play by a prominent Hindi dramatist Dharamvir Bharati. It is based on Mahabharata, which is considered to be the longest Indian epic ever written.

This play depicts an apt picture of our present times .The centralized theme of the play showcases how we easily blame god in our bad times. The play conveys how future is determined by our present actions and is not predestined. And, the major theme of this play is how violence and wars can only produce large-scale carnage without any victors!

The play has five acts; each act presenting a particular character and his/her blinkered vision of life. After losing the war against Pandavas, the left Kaurava characters – Ashvatthama, Gandhari, Dhritrashtra, Yuyutsu, etc – begin viewing Karma according to their own selfish interests. Their attitude towards life becomes so much blinkered that they commence on the path of further degeneration. They totally discard the idea of repent and instead, choose the path of further violence & carnage. The presence of the character of Krishna (Lord Vishnu in his human avatar) in each act through several things such as peacock feather, ringing of the bells and the melodious sound of his flute, is symbolic of the chance to repent available to the Kaurava characters. But, these characters are so much blinded by their rage that, these positive things are not visible to them.

After presenting us with an abominable picture of Kauravas’ actions, Bharati is ingenious enough to show us the deteriorating picture of Pandavas after their victory. Pandavas are also leading a decadent life as they do not know how to rule, they have killed their brothers and are equal participants in the bloodshed as much were the Kauravas. Their conscience is guilty and it seems as if one set of selfish rulers have simply replaced another. They do not prove to be any great rulers of Hastinapur.

Hence, through this play, Bharati questions the idea of aiming peace through wars. He clearly depicts how wars are destructive for both the sides. It does not matter whether you lose or win, a war can only lead to loss of human lives & peace.

I totally recommend you to read this play and realize how violence can only result in bloodshed without any happiness!
