Addiction to gadgets puts young people out of touch with reality: Prof Subramani

YOUNG people have a certain kind of addiction in digital gadgets that detaches them from the realities of human life.

This is an issue that was highlighted by University of Fiji acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Subramani at the 4th Fiji National Hindu Conference in Suva yesterday.

Speaking at the conference themed ‘Strengthening Hindu Communities, Strengthening Fiji’, he said┬ásocial media influenced young people’s lifestyle.

“In reality, young people are getting out of touch with the realities of human life,” Prof Subramani said.

“It’s a very serious issue because young people are not participating actively in our community.

“We have been brought together by technology but humanity is breaking down.”
