Parents are spying on their kids-What the crap?

The age of computers. That's what they call our generation. With every home having a computer, one knows how to operate a PC before learning to read and write properly. So, it's quite obvious that kids know how to use a computer and inevitably, the internet. In such a situation, it's reasonable that parents should be concerned about the safety of their children. After all, there are a lot of harmful stuff on the net like viruses and stuff that can affect the computer and worse, even things that can harm a child mentally. I'm sure you all have heard about many children being kidnapped by a guy they met on the net. Chatting with unknown people, accidentally inducing viruses into the PC(or laptop), porn, etc. are a few of the many dangers of the virtual world we call 'the net'. But does all this warrant the measures which parents everywhere have taken?
Newspapers like Chennai Times actually advise parents on how to keep 'tabs' on kids!The nerve of them! And all this is done in the name of 'protecting' kids from harmful things on the net. Yeah right! I think parents have better work to do than looking up the web history after the kids have finished. Or looking at what their children are doing from behind. That's an intrusion of privacy(yes, kids have something called privacy too) and it's very degrading to the children. I mean, parents should trust their children!
Before letting them go online, i think that parents should tell their kids about the internet and they should be warned about the dangers first. This will ensure that the kids dont go to websites that might cause viruses to attack the computer or any other such websites. This will also create a sense of responsibility in them and they will realize that the net is not only all games and fun, but also other dangers.
And finally, I also think that if parents go 'web history hunting', the child should put his/her foot down and tell his/her mother and father not to do such things and to trust them.
Well, that's all for now folks. Cya!

The Historian-A review

It was at a diner in a mall where I first heard of The Historian. I had gone out with my friends and was having dessert when i asked one of my friends to suggest a book. He's as fanatical about books as I am, albeit in a different way. He was a big fan of sci-fi books and he'd told me many other books that i loved reading. Anyway, he told me to read a book called The Historian. Typical, i thought. He was fond of books that blended history with mystery. I didnt think too badly of such books either. Besides, it had been sometime since i last read a book. So, the next day i went to the local library armed with a list of books, with The Historian topping the list. I wasn't too impressed by the cover when i saw the book. But then, i've always followed the adage 'Don't judge a book by it's cover' and i decided to get it. When i first started reading the book, i thought it was definitely going to be be something. It's the story of a young girl who found a …
