In this poem, Ms. Rama Ranganathan expresses her view on increasing screen time.

Screen gazers these...!
A typical scene of young ones at play,
With technology toys ...the order of the day!
Hooked to the net in eternal search,
Eyes on the screen they gaze
The infinite labyrinth...a maze!
Aided by a mouse or fingers on keys,
Oblivious young surfers...these!
When out of charge they're all at sea,
Heaving waves of emotion...what an irony!
