A GAME THIS CENTURY NEEDS

Hi, guys! There is nothing to be scared. I am NOT talking about the Blue Whale. That game is horrifying, unscrupulous and ill motivated. I myself felt deep agony for the innocent victims. It is pitiful that our technology is being manipulated to produce evil.

Hence, I thought why did it take such a malicious turn? Gaming can be used in a much meaningful, productive and healthy way. Here are some of my tasks on “MY GLOWING WHALE” game. (This is a fictitious name. You can call it anything as you wish.)

1. Wake up early for a week and do yoga for half an hour. It will already become a habit.

2. NO need to carve anything on your body. Just plant a tree and carve its life by taking care of it.

3. NO need to starve yourself. Just donot waste food. If you have more, then feed the already starving.

4. NO need to mutilate yourself. Mutilate your negative thoughts, work hard and help someone everyday.

5. NO need to do daring stupid tasks. Just be happy and cheerful as always. How about a memorable outing with friends and family?

6. NO need to prove your worth by risking your life. Know the worth of our scanty resources and prove your intelligence by curbing their wastage.

7. NO need to die. If you do the things I have mentioned above then you will never ever think of dying. You have a lot to achieve and a lot to learn, my dear coz now you are a GLOWING MIND.

  2. The things I have mentioned in this post are said to us many a times but sadly we tend to repel these after sometime. I wanted to put these forward again in an interesting way by geling it with a recent issue. This post is a portrayal of how some small things can work wonders while the wrong leads to your doom.

      2. Number 10 already included๐Ÿ˜Š and number 9 ๐Ÿ‘. I actually found out from Internet some tasks that the blue whale game contains. So I tried to match with their negative counterparts somehow. I believe there are many things to do but I mainly presented the things that included physical tasks. I didnot focus much on our mental part. Just tried to create a comparison of how the same verb can be used to do two completely opposite things. Btw thank you so much for your view.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. Welcome to the blogging world. We are going to enjoy seeing your positivity shining through. I like the way you reworked the game (I have to admit I have never heard of it) and all your points make a lot of sense. I love your last one. Of course we all die but if we give it a lot of thought we might as well be dead and the preference is definitely to live.

    1. Thanks a lot. The actual game mentioned is brutal and plays with the minds of the vulnerable and makes them do harmful tasks. The end task given is to end your life but it has recently been kept under strict vigilance and is banned. Many people fell into its trap. Positivity needs to be built in people to avoid such tomfoolery.

      1. Sounds dreadful. I have read of art installations that also make me worry about the minds of the artist and those who profess to enjoy the works. I’m with you on the positivity.

    You’re making a great start as a blogger, and thank you for your “like.” Am not a game person. Actually am known for that in the family that I consistently refuse games and start knitting or painting, whatever I feel in the mood of – so I don’t have any idea about that game:)
    One point of concern – have been perusing several posts of your blog, and here you’re suggesting yoga as a first activity. Hope you mean exercise, and not “real” yoga which positions to worship the sun. I wouldn’t have said anything, if I had not read that it seems you believe in God (in one of your posts). Hope you know worshiping an object at the same time as God does not go together. He wants all of your worship and he holds that the sun, moon, nature are things he created, not things to be worshiped. That’s all:) Have a great day and hope it has not come over as a lecture, but as info (which I don’t know if you already know or if it’s new to you). Anyway, cheers:)

    1. Hi! jesh stg. Hope you are doing great. First of all, thank you for your kind visit.
      Actually, I didn’t consider yoga religiously while posting this because my perspective regarding the Almighty has always been ‘An omnipresent power’. He is there in everything ( in sun too).
      Yoga combines the benefits of exercise and meditation into proper tried-out postures that have been seen to provide miraculous health benefits. I think that is very important. An ancient set of disciplines is something you can trust for your body.
      However, if one strictly considers yoga for its origin in ancient times and cannot gel with it, one can obviously try out other forms of exercise and meditation. It depends on the person’s own perspective.

  16. Sadly, so many people now are addicted to the fake realities of games and other online pursuits. Life lived to its fullest is truly the best “game” there is. Thanks for addressing that. Oh, and thank you also for following Beauty Along the Road.

    I’m very familiar with the online gaming world and community. But while there are a lot of jerks lurking there, lots of desensitized people, even for an online gaming standard Blue Whale challenge is one very dangerous corner that no one in their right minds should ever venture to, at least in my opinion.

    Thank you for this writing :’)))
