How to avoid various distractions?

 चञ्चलं हि मनः कृष्ण प्रमाथि बलवद्दृढम्।
तस्याहं निग्रहं मन्ये वायोरिव सुदुष्करम्।।6.34।।

Now a day lots of distractions are present for the students that are marring their hopes and dreams. Technologies and easily availability of other resources are misleading and confusing the students that should have been supporting to them. Television, Gadgets, social networking sites and others are ruining the dreams of the students, parents and society. Parents very often complain that my ward don’t take food without watching TV since childhood. Parents often complain that my child is addicted to computer and he /she overlooks everything for this. Why this scenario has arisen?

 Earlier the families happened to be joint family where grandfather and grandmother used to tell stories and tales which used to build character imbibing moral and social values. When a baby cries which is very normal, parents took them to TV. The baby being too small to respond he/ she just get involved in changing pictures and colors. At this stage he/ she could not understand the meaning of the programs, he/she was watching. By the passage of time he/ she got habituated of watching TV while eating as it seems to be a part of culture and routine to them. In our society we are not living in a combined family where other members may take care of the baby properly. So parents make the students watch cartoons on TV quietly while they do their office work and other.  When the baby grows further parents just want to engage them in any activity so that they may get the babies quiet and they may do their other works. For this they don’t hesitate to give mobile and gadgets to the babies. By now the baby gets trapped in the gadgets and television and it really becomes very tough to control their mindset. Don’t forget -Nothing is more precious in this world than your child. Parents should give time and proper attention to their children. In place of giving mobile phone they should give toys as per their age in early childhood. Later on they may give them story books and folk tales. In childhood days grasping power are very high and the impression on minds of various things leaves very deep impact. These are days when children actually learn how to react and how to respond. It is natural for babies to cry. Parents should have the patience and time to handle them. Once the bay grow up as they are taught fire can burn if not handled carefully and fire can give light and heat both when handled properly, they may be taught the benefits and threatening of the various activities.  

Now what if a student got trapped? He/ she must think of his/ her ultimate goal. To achieve that goal a proper plan with proper time management is required. He/ she should check how much time they can make free from these distractions and by the passage of time they should restrict their involvement in such activities. It is tough to leave all at once but gradually it can be done.  The secret behind staying ahead in this world is not about what do you want but about how badly you want it. It all depends upon the level of seriousness of a student to achieve his/her goal.

अभ्यासेन तु कौन्तेय वैराग्येण च गृह्यते।।6.35।।
