i just read a post on one of my frens blog.. he is of the opinion that internet has a negative influence on the generation now….

i dont quite agree.. u cant blame internet for stopping us think.. the notion that technology n internet have made us lazy is wrong… its a different era now.. infact it has made us more intelligent n has given us more access to knowledge..

the accusation against internet is like this.. if a person needs to submit a report, he uses google n takes the printout.. he gets a good grade n everyone’s happy even though he hasnt put enough efforts n doesnt know much about the topic…

my view on that is like this… he gets a good grade only if he has organised that info.. for organising, he must have gone thru all the info n deleted those info which wasnt needed n so on..

so internet never stops anyone from thinking.. the person who does stop thinking or becomes lazy due to the internet is the one to blame, not internet….


  1. Internet, like many other things, is like a knife. You can use to cut someone’s throat or to cut vegetables.
    Forget organising and stuff, look at this way. If people want to cheat, they can still cheat by borrowing senior’s report or someway else. The motive matters.
    Internet just eases the motive, whether it is to gain knowledge or to steal it 🙂
    For one small disadvantage there are 1000 advantages and ease with which our lives got added advantages. Your friend is just ignorant of the advantages !
    Btw, it is always good practise to link to the blog about which you will be speaking so that we can know in what context the matter is written.

  5. hi Roshan,
    i completely support your opinion. it all depends on the individual. u know the tale of two parrots…right? so internet is really an ocean of all kinds of information. so the kind of info u seek decides your character. there is nothing to argue anymore. finally, i say… it all depends on the individual. using it effciently takes to the peak else will be put down.
