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.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)There are minor adjustments to be made. Pay attention to paper work and study documents carefully before giving your approval. A tempting job offer is likely but you may discover later that things are not what they seem to be. Home life exudes warmth. This is the time to make it up to your beloved and restore faith and confidence in those who love you.
