In the video, Bhuchung Kata interviews a variety of individuals and professionals to gather their perspectives on the topic. The video discusses numerous problems associated with excessive screen time, such as eye strain, sleep deprivation, increased stress and anxiety, social isolation, depression, and physical inactivity.
