Why do teenage boys perform life-threatening stunts?
I don’t have a clue.
These daredevils risk their lives in the name of ‘fun’.
Less said better about ‘viral videos’ which can encourage teens to do stupid things that can lead to death.
Why do these young people do what they do?
You ask any one of these brain-less souls, the answer remains the same; “We do it because we enjoy doing this”
I feel we must blame the sheer ‘peer pressure’ or ‘surge of hormones’ or to be in the ‘limelight! or do they love to impress the opposite gender?
Social media platforms not helping much, sadly the video/photo goes viral!
In India, one can see people hanging from the doors of trains or speeding buses or hanging behind a moving vehicles not only risking their lives but others too.
Teens doing dangerous stunts on the modified bicycles are too common.
These boys are seen hanging from the bus window grill and their legs taking support on a rotating back wheel of the bus. What a terrifying scene!
I am sure you might have come across such scenes in your country may be in different Avatars.
What is your experience, my friend?
Apologies for the poor resolution of the images. Images captured with OnePlus 6 mobile camera.
This teenager saw this slowly moving commercial vehicle and got tempted to ride on its back.
Probably he wanted to enjoy a ‘free’ ride with all the thrill.
Next minute he started losing his balance as the vehicle started to pick up speed.
Next second, we see the boy falling.
Luckily, he did not fall on his head. He managed somehow and got up and started walking calmly towards the pavement side of the road.
Of course, the onlookers were shouting at him for his misdeed.
Luckily this boy escaped un harmed.
All is well that ends well!
Many may not be this lucky!
Are these teens following this quote truthfully?
“Life is inherently risky.
There is only one big risk.
You should avoid at all costs, that is the risk of doing nothing” Unknown
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
