Perilous selfie craze!

Friday, January 06, 2017

It is shocking to read that a 21-year-old youth died after he was hit by a speeding train on Saturday night while attempting to click a selfie, in Chennai. In a similar incident, few months back a teenager studying in 11th standard in Chennai, tried to take a 'selfie' by climbing on a stationary wagon and came into contact with the overhead power lines, following which he was electrocuted.

Taking 'Selfie' has become a craze. People take selfies not only with celebrities but even on other occasions to boost their self image and confidence. Also if there is an emergency, people need to take steps to resolve the issue or help the affected and not be busy taking photographs or selfies. Let us believe in ourselves, not in our selfies.
