The only advantage of taking a selfie is – you don’t need to request someone else to click your own picture. Otherwise I can’t see any other utilisation behind this phenomenal invention of the 21st century.
Selfie has micro contribution in capturing the view behind except focusing on some zoomed-in faces. But it has been a craze amongst people since it’s advent. I would be lying if I say that I have never used the front camera in my mobile. But every selfie has screamed the fact that I look similar to the handsome face displayed in the post. And why just me? I know many people who are not gifted with good looks yet show immense confidence in saying ‘come, let’s take a selfie’. So you see, I am not a very big fan of selfies. Neither do I understand the obsession behind clicking or sharing them.
This concept of taking a selfie becomes even more crazy and pointless when people use this technology to click photos where they should not be clicking them. Just a day back, a piece of news showed that debris falling after a missile hit in Saudi Arabia killed a man. People present in the spot got busy in taking selfies as if the loss of a life meant nothing.
Many a times such news flash on our TV screens. Someone unfortunate gets lynched because of differences between the members of Gau Rakshak committee. Rest of the people enjoy the fun by taking a selfie in front of them. A person meets an accident, people are taking selfies with the injured instead of extending a helping hand to him first. I know these lines sound bizarre, but all of us reading this post has heard of such incidents some time or other.
The better the technology is in each passing day, the more insane we are becoming at the same time. Logic and common sense often take a break from us. Now there is one more word that has come in the urban dictionary- GROUPFIE as if selfie itself was not enough. God only can save us from one more ‘fie’.
