Desi kids kill and get killed on computer war games.

On my recent year in India (2011) browsing centers already reached rural towns with enough PC's to drop rates to Rs.10 per gaming hour for locals. This affordable rate made those cyber cafes become a favorite timepass for youth engaged in video/voice/text chatting on social media (romantic aspirations made easy on regulated traditional India) and children. I was often the only adult in the shop since my fellow Indian generation evolved computerless. Packed with school boys in a frenzy of murder until late evening, pools of bloodshed, road rage, upto date knowledge of war machines etc... This virtual reality brain wash didn't yet translate into violent streetlife. I believe there is still a critical mass of parents and grandparents who grew up on traditional Indian/Hindu values (Ahimsa, Karma, Atithi Devo Bhavah) to balance this energy. Let's see what adults these yougsters come to be, how will be their contribution blend into the uniqueness of India.
