Ignorance is bliss

(Muhammad Saleem Baloch, Karachi)

We are living in the age of instant noodles and messaging and edging towards five G technology. We are the blessed ones who are fed with up to the minutes the fastest electronic, print and social media information. We are the fortunate ones with world at our fingertips. Media giants like Google and YouTube are always ready to serve us whatever we want to know about anything just name it. No doubt we are at the pinnacle of success and development. Knowledge is just a click away from us and this has also has a huge price tag attached. Have we ever realized? Does knowing have more benefits or knowing little suffices our needs. Indeed it's an arguable point but we have to reflect on this point ourselves that whether knowing more gives us stress or solace. According to medical experts most of the diseases are urban which means people in metropolis are more literate, modern and informed. One way we see that knowing more has more benefits and the other way we also witness that knowing more may cause stress, depression, anxiety and other mental disorders. So, the question is how much should we know? It depends on someone's nerves and we all are different from each other. There are people who are extremely vulnerable and prone to diseases. Then there are people with iron nerves who stand against all odds. In this rich information age how many people spread information before checking out the authenticity and veracity. Isn't the peasant living a simple idyllic life in a remote village unaware of looming world recession and crumbling economies, situation more serene and relaxed than us living in cities? Though, the peasant may not be aware what is going around the world and definitely this has also many disadvantages. I bet that peasant would be happier, healthier and more relaxed than us. Is the abundance of information doing any good or doing more harm to us? I leave this question for you.....!
