Author Name: Dr. P.N. Suresh Kumar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Technology & Engineering | Other Details

India's digital journey is one of exuberance. The country had the world's second-largest internet population at over 469.3 million users in 2020. Of these, 390 million users access internet via their mobile phones. With the invention of smart phones, the use of personal computers and laptops for internet connection has become unnecessary. Mobiles are also used to take photos, watching movies and videos and email communication. College students use them as show pieces and compete with each other to  own the latest models. They indulge in crime for money to buy gadgets

The misuse of mobile and internet has inversely affected our relationships, friendships and responsibilities. The addiction becomes uncontrollable as it affects both body and mind. The problem is very serious because the addicts are usually below thirty years of age. Many are now addicted to online games, cybersex, even at the cost of their employment and families.

Many commit suicide and lose interest in academic pursuits.

Chatting, dating, cyber relationships, online gambling/gaming and marital disharmonies have increased phenomenally in recent time. 

Women are trapped in strange relationships developed through Facebook and WhatsApp. E-waste is another emerging global public health issue.

Management of this new generation addiction disorder is not very easy and prevention is the best approach.  This book highlights the tragic state of the  new addiction disorder and tries to persuade addicts to outlive their addiction and seek medical help.
