What The Government Fails to See

I still remember how i used to skip my English literature and algebra classes, back in college and still ended up scoring maximum marks in the exams. It wasn’t anything like divine guidance that helped me carry this out; rather it was the internet; or more precisely the videos on YouTube. When i bring the notion of humiliation of our religion in my mind, i fail to disagree with the decision the government made… With all due respect, I considered teachers of both the fore-mentioned subjects as ‘boring’. I always learnt a lot from YouTube, but then they decided to ban it. Well, i stopped missing lectures after that and i thought to myself: ‘Job well-done, PTA!’, until i realized that it wasn’t because of me rather it was the dis-respect of our religion that made them do it. I was relieved; i accepted and respected the decision. Till today, when i bring the notion of humiliation of our religion in my mind, i fail to disagree with the decision the government made; but what the government fails to see is that the usage of YouTube may have dropped in percentage but is still not eliminated. I, myself, after few days of naiveness, started missing lectures again. My point is that all the government did was it made the YouTube access a bit tiresome and not denied. So i ask myself, the benefits of the ban and i ask myself ‘Why?

Where some may say that it’s a good idea, i fail to agree. On one hand, morally or ethically this could make some sense; now people would spend their time more productively, maybe a little less road accidents and early night sleeps; but what the government fails to see is that these small perks actually helped a lot of hard-working youth to collaborate effectively: now if you want to take some help from your friend, you will have to go ring his bell, because you are short of credit (not everybody has a 100 rupees to spend daily on credit) Now if you have to set up a meeting, it would cost you 100 times more than what it used to cost, now if you got to call somebody you are related to, and they live seven seas away, you will have to think thrice.
