Mobile phone of today is no longer a mere means of communication. Music lovers are so glued to it that they don’t pay attention even to the traffic while crossing the roads. This leads to accidents sometimes even fatal ones. Write a speech in 150-200 words to be delivered in the morning assembly advising the students to be careful in the use of this otherwise very useful gadget. Imagine you are Principal of your school.
A very good morning to the esteemed teachers and my dear students.
Today, I stand before you to speak about the mania that has gripped this generation. I couldn’t help but notice youngsters so engrossed in their mobile phones, that they are unconcerned about the surroundings. Even while crossing roads, children don’t seem to notice the approaching vehicles. Just the other day, I read in a newspaper that a boy was hit by a speeding bus because he was too involved in his phone, listening to music that he did not hear the sound of the horn.
Mobile phones of today are no longer a mere means of communication. They are as efficient as a computer and do multiple things one of which is playing music. Although the majority of people may see it as a boon, there are drawbacks as well. Music lovers always have earphones plugged into their ears because of which the noise outside is inaudible and they don’t seem to hear the sound of the traffic. This leads to accidents sometimes even fatal ones. If one is lucky enough to survive, one has to live with physical disabilities for the rest of one’s life.
Here, I would like to quote Albert Einstein when he said, “I fear the day when technology surpasses human interaction, we will have a generation of idiots.” Children, you should understand that you have a bright future ahead. Gadgets are for our help and convenience, not to lead us to death trap. Therefore, it is advisable to be careful in the use of mobile phones for listening to music. If at all you wish to listen to music keep the volume low so that you are able to listen to sound of the horn and the traffic. Stay safe children, and make your parents proud, not sorry.
