Blue Whale Game also “Blue Whale Challenge”, is an internet game that now exists in several countries.
The game allegedly consists of a series of tasks assigned to players by curators during a 50-day period, with the final challenge requiring the player to commit suicide.
Where does this idea come from? Who has created this suicidal game? What was the purpose behind designing this killer game?
Philipp Budeikin, a former student of psychology who was expelled from his university, claimed that he invented the game. Budeikin stated that his purpose was to “clean” the society. Those who seem to be weak or want to commit suicide, were his easy targets.
In 2016 a Russian journalist investigated the facts and wrote an article on Blue Whale Challenge. Budeikin was arrested and found guilty to provoke 16 teenager girls to commit suicide.
The game is based on the relationship between the challengers and the administrators of this Game. These administrators give frequent tasks to the players per day. These tasks have to be completed within the given time and players pledge to not to tell others about this Game. Some tasks can be given in advance, while others can be passed on by the administrators on that day. Admins keep an eye on the players and tease them if they fail in completing the given task. Admins control your mind like a remote control and the most interesting part is that the player can not quit this game. Changing of mobiles or Sims are useless because these curators have all the information about player’s family. They can reach you anywhere till you finish the most horrible last task in which you have to take your own life. Curators play with the psychology of the player and know how to mould his or her mind.
Who are the victims?
Those who are introvert, shy, dejected or internet savvy can easily be targeted by the curators. It’s sad that teens don’t trust their parents and strangers are guiding them to commit suicide.
Stress is overpowering us and to fulfil the greed to earn money by hook or crook is responsible for the change in society. Parents don’t have time to spend with children. It’s really shocking that children are waking up early by 4.20 AMand their parents are unaware of this fact. If a child is watching horror movies or cutting his hands, how can his/ her parents be so ignorant?
Evil does not come from outside, it is within us. It’s not a time to blame Game planners, it time to blame those parents who are giving expensive devices to their kids. There is no one to stop them from opening or joining these secret sites. Actually there are many children who feel melancholy and feel insecured. Parents and teachers are not reading their minds. Everyone is busy in making them machines who can bring lacs and crores to home. Zero tolerance is another factor behind this theory. If someone bullies a child and he/ she is unable to control emotions, can take this deadly step.
The main question is now coming up.
Why are we earning money?
It’s of no use if children are being ignored in such a way that they are ready to end their life brutally. Distances between parents and kids are getting higher.
Talking to your children and spending time can be the best solutions. Counsellors can talk to these children and provide help on time. But the main cause of these deaths must be removed to prevent other teenagers to take their lives. Banning these sites or apps are temporary solutions. Best way is to keep healthy environment in families. Parents must learn to give time to their kids and guide them to be better human beings. Awareness campaigns should be run on large scales during assemblies in schools. Parents must be guided to tackle the problems of their children.
After all life is precious and can’t be returned.
Blue Whale is definitely a big challenge to parents who are participating in an endless race of status and luxurious life.
A last question to my readers: Who is dangerous , Blue Whale or changing societal rules?
