Ban Games on the Deep Web

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The death of a 14-year-old boy re­sult­ing from his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the on­line game Blue Whale Chal­lenge should be a wakeup call for the gov­ern­ment to take steps to pre­vent a re­cur­rence of the tragedy. Spend­ing most of the wak­ing hours in the vir­tual world is a recipe for men­tal dis­e­qui­lib­rium and psy­cho­log­i­cal harm for young­sters. Once a pas­time, com­puter games have turned the Grim Reaper to­day. The case for ban­ning com­puter games on the Deep Web is unas­sail­ably strong.
