Since the past few years, the Blue Whale game has become a hysteria that has gripped most parts of the world. This dangerous game is a twisted suicide challenge which influences teens into killing themselves. It has been linked to at least 130 teen deaths across the world.
During the game, the administrator assigns horrific tasks like self-harming, watching horror movies, and waking up at unusual hours, to the participants which they have to complete in 50 days. On the 50th day, he manipulates the person to commit suicide. In India, six suicides have been linked to this deadly game.
To combat this notorious worldwide phenomenon, an 18-year-old Pakistani boy, Waseem Gul, has developed an anti-Blue Whale app. The purpose of this app is to make people realize the importance of life and bring positivity around them.
This app, too, includes 50 tasks but all the challenges are created to make people’s lives better. Here are those tasks:
- When you wake up, don’t move from the bed for 10 minutes.
- Touch your nose using your right thumb.
- Slice a fresh onion and try not to cry while doing it.
- Eat a donut but don’t lick your fingers/lips afterward.
- Eat 1 big tablespoon of pure ketchup
- Help your parents in household work.
- Remember – Helping others without interest is cool.
Also, after you complete the last task on the 50th day, a valuable message will pop up. It reads,
Congratulations you have become a Smart BlueWhale. Remember your life is a precious gift don’t waste it on strange challenges you find on the internet. The world is full of strange people, some of them will try to scare you in order to make you do odd things, if something like this happens to you, inform your parents or adults that you trust. Stay healthy and happy blue whale grandmaster.
Amazing work, Waseem.
Say yes to life!
