How we literally kill others on the Internet!

“By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.”

I never met her in real life, we just talked on web.
But I am sure that she was a really beautiful soul and a huge fandom of social networking.
She loved sharing what was on her mind with the world but, unfortunately, the world didn’t love her like she loved the world.
She got disgrace, haterade & jealousy in return of her feelings. And as a last option she chooses to quit this judging world, that cares more about their views than a person’s feelings.

We don’t think that our words affect. (It was just a small comment, we think.)
But in real, they do! And due to this; due to us, many beautiful souls die and another gets up to have their place until someone again judges, what’s on their mind.

So, above was a work of fiction that describe the current situation of this so-called “Developed” world. We judge others by their actions, but ourselves by our intentions. Everyone who just scroll down; likes or support one of those negative comments become a part of it; part of the crime, that hurts a person’s mind. We also know it by an another name: CyberBullying. Yes! It’s a part of it and most the time it develops a base for the bullies to attack the victims. And according to some studies, Bullying victims are 2 to 9 times more likely to consider committing suicide.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

This quote was originally said by Mark Twain,  a great author from the United states who has written many great novels, including the best-selling, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”. I am mentioning this quote here because today’s article is all based decision-making & self-reflection.

We have already talked a lot about CyberBullying & its effects on our society, so this week I conducted a poll asking people that, “Do you think that Bullies deserve a chance to improve?”. And here is the result of that poll:

A war for Net Neutrality!

In India, the country’s telecommunications are planning to adopt a provision to regulates web costs according to the sites. This means that they will be able to charge users extra fees for services like YouTube, WhatsApp and Skype on the top of Internet fees. And as the net neutrality says: Internet should be treated with proper equality and no one should make us pay extra than the normal data charges.  You can easily submit a response to the TRAI (at advqos@trai.gov.in) before the deadline on 24 April 2015, as their final decision will be based on the users choice. And this work can be done in a better way using this site- www.savetheinternet.in

 People are also using the #IndiaWantsNetNeutrality or #SaveTheInternet on the social media that tells us about their anger towards this statement.

So, it’s your decision to support any side, but we will be present here to save you from any kind of web threat in both type of Internets. Thank you for reading!
