We, the modern generation of 21st century is living in an all-correct world
where nothing is wrong. Everyone has their own justification for committing a
crime or a sin. And in this era where nothing can be claimed to be absolutely
wrong we give rise to evil lurking in our minds making this society unsafe. The
worst thing about evil thinking is that it can easily be hidden from the society
by a smooth layer of pseudo goodness.
There is no doubt about the universal truth that children are the future
building blocks of our society. Children are considered the epitome of goodness,
truth and loyalty. But the sad situation prevailing in this modern world
highlights the two disturbing evils of our society namely, child abuse and
pornography. The latter being the very root of the evil tree of child abuse.
Pornography is digitalising and uploading graphically explicit content on the
internet through the medium of videos. These videos feature actors and actresses
who perform sexually appealing acts that draws attention of the viewer. Under
the act of making such videos it is clearly stated that such videos should have
age restriction but internet is a wide ocean open for all to jump in and once
the user jumps in it is upto his own free will whether the user wants to make
the best use of it or enter into a world full of evil things.
Pornography has attracted a large number of teenagers during the last few years.
According to a survey about 85.2% teenagers use porn to spend their leisure
time. Teenagers take it as a source of sex education which is necessary but the
way in which it is provided is unlawful. These films providing a visual effect
to the teenagers limits their imagination to a small extent and deteriorates
their thinking skills.
Pornography has a great impact on the biological functioning of our body. While
watching such videos our body generates various sexually active hormones which
gives our body extra energy and compells our mind to think about such
graphically explicit scenes. People usually develope a habit of semen
ejaculation while watching such videos which causes the following harmful
effects to our body:
- Weakening of eyesight
- Anger issues
- Lowering down the strength
- Limiting the imagination to a small extent.
Above all these harmful effects to a human body a person suffers from lack of
concentration, stress and sometimes depression too Pornographic films have
always been made to watch by viewers who have some desires and these desires
most of the time are not just fulfilled by virtually viewing other people.
Infact, they gives rise to a feeling of bringing virtuality to reality which
forces people to do the same as they see in these sexually attractive movies.
Such videos keep on instigating sexual desires in a person's mind.
Teenage is definitely an age where the blood is hot and is ready to make
mistakes at any point of time. It is the age when our hormones become sexually
active and our mind races towards such non conventional content. Parents should
take it as a sign when their children develope the habit of keeping things to
themselves and start using the mobile phone for longer durations in the night or
any time of the day.
The thing that surprises us the most is that not only adults but children are
also persuing this act of watching sex related content on the internet at a
speed which has surpassed the adults doing it. In today's World, every 1 in 10
Kids Under 10 years of age haa seen porn.
New research from the security technology company Bitdefender, has reported
children under the age of 10 now account for 22% of online porn consumption
under 18 -years old.
It is quite surprising that children are being so much addicted to such things
at such an age where the only things they need to know is studies and playing.
Giving your child the right knowledge about sex is indeed very important, but
the child seeking the desired knowledge in his or her own way from various sites
showing such content is definitely a matter of concern.
Most parents make it a point in their life to discuss about such things with
their children so that the child knows the difference about good touch and bad
Human race has always been a race of endless desires. We achieve what we want by
hook or by crook. A person being addicted to such movies try to search for a
companion of an opposite gender to fulfill his or her desire and when he or she
is not able to find a companion their inner fiend pushes them to a limit of
frustration when they start to force a person of opposite gender to fulfill
their desire and this gives birth to another demon of the society, sexual abuse
having direct connection with pornography.
Sexual abuse is a heidous act of compelling a person to develope sexual
relations with him or her without their prior consent. This is often called
molestation. The person who compells is the sexual abuser. Sexual abuse has been
a very common day to day crime in our advanced society where only 35% cases are
reported, rest remaining hidden under the curtains of shame and family prestige
usually due to anthropophobia.
Such vast and impossible to escape are the clutches of sexual abuse that it has
slowly crossed all the boundaries of sin and has added the word child too as a
prefix to the two words making it child sexual abuse.
The culture of India refers collectively to the thousands of distinct and unique
cultures of all religions and communities present in India. India's languages,
religions, dance, music, architecture, food and customs differ from place to
place within the country. Indian culture, often labeled as an amalgamation of
several cultures, spans across the Indian subcontinent and has been influenced
by a history that is several millennia old. Many elements of India's diverse
cultures, such as Indian religions, philosophy, cuisine, languages, dance, music
and movies have a profound impact across the Indosphere,
Greater India and the world. The people in India regard "sex"
as a very
private matter which is not to be discussed in an open place or with anyone.
People find it embarrassing while discussing upon it. Similarly, talking about
in India to their children is as rare as finding greenery in the
Thar desert. Parents don't teach their kids that where a person is not supposed
to touch them as a result of which children are being sexually harassed by
people and they don't even realise that something very wrong has happened with
Due to the fear of being scolded, many children do not even tell their parents
of the trauma they go through all alone and continue to live in their misery
which further results into a number of unspoken words of pain.
Merely a thought of being sexually harassed causes our mind to lose its peace .
It is such a disgusting act that no one should fall prey to it be it a woman or
a man, and adult or even a child. Sadly enough, India reports a thousands of
cases throughout the year about being molested and the worst thing about them is
that many a times its the member from one's own family who does such an act of
A thousand times such things are ignored considering the shame it would cause if
other people would come to know about it.
In the recent past, we've heard innumerable stories of how children are being
molested just for the sexual satisfaction of an adult. The brutal murder cases
of zenab and asifa still bring tears in our eyes as we think about the pain they
must have went through. The sufferings of the families of such victims is also
unexplainable. We cannot even measure the amount of pain and rage the mothers of
these two daughters must've been through and are still continuing to suffer.
Child abuse doesn't only come in the form of sexual abuse but also in various
other forms. The other common form is negligence.
Child neglect is the failure of a parent or other person with responsibility for
the child, to provide needed food, clothing, shelter, medical care, or
supervision to the degree that the child's health, safety or well-being may be
threatened with harm. Neglect is also a lack of attention from the people
surrounding a child, and the non-provision of the relevant and adequate
necessities for the child's survival, which would be a lack of attention, love,
Some observable signs of child neglect include: the child is frequently absent
from school, begs or steals food or money, lacks needed medical and dental care,
is consistently dirty, or lacks appropriate clothing for the weather. The 2010
Child Maltreatment Report (NCANDS), a yearly United States federal government
report based on data supplied by state Child Protective Services (CPS) Agencies
in the U.S. found that neglect/neglectful behavior was the "most common form of
child maltreatment "
Every child needs to be loved. Children have a young mind which requires
learning but in a gentle and kind way not by beating the innocent child which
will only make him stubborn and rude.
