|Subject: Screen Watching Maniac Staring-Screen-Syndrome|
I know an adult at his 23, addicted not only to TV but also to all screen actions or images he can see on screens, let it be thru Internet, Mobile, Computer Games, Cricket, football or movies. He is a “Screen Watching Maniac or can this state be categorized a Staring-Screen-Syndrome. This habit of him developed from his adolescence is not at all diminishing, even though he is now an adult waiting for his MBA result from a normal university.
When he himself cannot even control this disgusting habits, with this level of maturity and outlook towards life, how can he ever mange any other human being. His fatal attraction to the electronic screens is like flies getting attracted to light sources.
He like Actions on screens and remain in front them as Mr. Action-Less. . He likes to enjoy all the jokes said, shown, or messaged through electronic media, reacting loudly with violent giggles and laughter’s, whereas he himself is becoming a Laughing Stock, in eyes of others. Even if his parents dead body is in the house, if he get a chance he may look at screens.
He is fan of many famous personalities .A real Fan at least rotates and gives wind to people around to remain cool. However, a Fan like him neither progress by himself but continue to rotate in the vicious circle of his foolish, impractical dreams and is destined to remain a Useless-Faceless-Fan,
The fool wanted to be famous. “How are you going achieve that Dream? He does not have any reply. Can you give him a reply? However, it seems that he has flow chart of action. As an initial step to become a model or actor, he wants to become rich, by doing some highly rewarded job in the corporate world. Will he get good job? Can you answer him? Now a big question. Can you find an employer, who can give him job with heavy salary where he can lead life of his choice i.e. watching Screens and attending office as and when he like . .
He does not know the importance standing on his own legs and do not mind accepting alms from parents in their fifties, who have been working hard at both house and office. If he is denied of watching screens, then he will start sleeping. Night he remain wakes up till midnight looking at screens and days he can sleep till any time in his unkempt room locking the door, if none bother to call him . He never looks to the realties and the efforts of parents to make money. To them it is their duty to serve him since they have produced him. Whenever someone mention about some other boys who are successful, he become jealous and shout “I do not want to hear their names?” He never read anything serious other than stories of sports and models. He understands all English, but never attempts to write anything his own.
He likes to see all actions on stage and never tries to his ability on stage. He company with boys of his own boyish manners, but avoids people who have succeeded in real life. He found realism in reel life and his real life is going to be rolling.
Remaining idle without doing any job, his ego level is plummeting to a low level of a street beggar. His parents with so many work related tensions and that in addition, such a tension like him at their house, with their mediocre education level, do not know “children psychology” as demanded by him, but can‘t he understand ‘ parent’s psychology . Hope you can answer him through your column. If luck is there, he may search on TV addiction to find your answers. Otherwise he will be always computer on face book (what a face ) or on Movies ( Motionless Monster ) or on Game ( a game to end life) or Mobile ( totally immobile ) or Music ( music of worries soon).
