what is blue whale game??


The reality behind the theory of killer game ‘Blue Whale’

A teen boy comes across the online social media game, The Blue Whale. He is given one challenge after the other. He accomplishes every task and keeps on moving to the subsequent levels. The final and concluding challenge asks him to commit suicide. He clicks himself on top of a building and jumps. If police speculations are to be believed, this is what led to the death of the 14-year-old Mumbai boy four days ago. This is the first death in India, which is being linked to the infamous Blue Whale game.
The standard 9 boy had allegedly discussed the game with his friends, telling them about the final stage. They thought he was joking when he told them he won't be coming to the school anymore. The game is believed to have rocked many teen lives in Russia and even in the UK.

For the uninitiated, Blue Whale made its debut in Russia almost four years ago (in 2013) and is believed to have killed more than 100 teens so far. Recently its creator was sentenced to three years of imprisonment for seeking out and instigating teenagers on the Internet to take the challenge, which ends up in the participant committing suicide. Reportedly, the game has challenges ranging from cutting one's wrist to watching horror movies in the middle of the night. Reports suggest a lot of young minds succumbing to this sort of online manipulation.

Parents, beware

The teenage brain can be complex and confusing. Neuroscientist and author Dr Frances Jensen writes in her book 'The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist's Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults', teenage brain has 80 per cent structure and function of the adult brain. She compared teenage brain to a driver who can drive a car but does not yet know how to use the brakes to stop it.
