Selfie deaths…


Generally, most of us are fond of taking selfie whenever we get a chance. The word “selfie” was added in Oxford English dictionary in 2013. But are you aware there are many injuries and deaths which occurs at the time of taking selfie. According to a study by scholars from Carnegie Mellon University and Indraprastha Institute of Information Delhi, India has more selfie-related deaths than any country in the world. The findings of the study reveals that there were 127 deaths due to selfie over the past two years, of which 76 deaths occurred in India alone. So, we are the topper when it comes to selfie deaths.  Let us look at the number of casualties occurred in some countries due to selfie which is depicted in the following table. The data is as per  the above mentioned study.

Country No of casualties
India 76
Pakistan 9
USA 8
Russia 6
Philippines, China 4
Spain 3

 

As it can be inferred from the data above, selfie deaths have now become a serious issue. There is nothing wrong in taking selfies but it should be taken with precaution. I also take selfie sometimes but what I want to point it out with this article is that, do take selfie but with care. Don’t put your life on stake unnecessarily. Taking selfie is not bad but the only thing is it should be taken with precaution. Do look around before taking selfie to check whether you are safe enough or not. Don’t take risk as life is precious. This is an alarming situation and it can be checked provided people should pay precautions while taking selfies.

And last, if you understand this and wise enough to take the precaution, then do sing this song while taking selfie, “Chal beta selfie le le re.” 🙂

Send me the link :-)


Remembering the initial days of blogging, I remember one of the most common excuses given by most of my friends was , “Send me the link of your blog post I will see it… ” However, this has not yet changed and remains intact meaning that if I ask them to look in to my blog post, the same excuse comes. 🙂 For more than six years I came across this excuse. If you will ask whether they really read your post, the answer will most of the time, “Arey, I forgot. Please send me the link again.”  Have you been through such response? 😛

Interestingly, one person told me to send link to all my blog posts. I responded in saying that I will send you my blog link where you can read all the posts (obviously my blog will contain all the posts… 😛 ). But he kept on insisting to send all the links separately so that he will read when he is free and is in relaxed mood. I was wondering what to respond.  I thought there are more than 100 posts, meaning I need to send 100 links to him. LOl… 😛  Obviously these memories make me laugh and I really enjoy facing them. 😛 What about you all? Did you come across such incidents? Do share your experience which will make me and others to laugh more. Hahaha… 😛

The road ahead…


 

The road ahead is immense.
One needs to focus and be present.
Not only physically but mentally as well.
That may turn all into well.
Life has many options available.
Which one to choose is crucial.
Choosing by interest or compromise.
One has to think and decide.
Tough decision is required some time.
Carrying you ahead of time.
Think and decide.
As…
The road ahead is immense.
One needs to focus and be present.

Sudden call…


 

I would like to share an excerpt from Radio Mirchi where you get some silly incidents which make you laugh. I was laughing so much which I can’t express. Just read and enjoy…

A person called a girl to inform about that he had liked her profile picture on facebook. The girl showed gratitude by saying thanks to the person and was impressed to know the same. After receiving thanks, the person told her that by mistake he liked her profile picture which he is going to dislike now. The girl asked the reason to dislike. The man said, “What is there to like in your picture? People like the picture when there is something to like. People press the like button if the picture is pretty enough, if it is attractive, beautiful etc.” Annoyed by this the girl says, “Since you have already liked the picture, let it be.” The person was not convinced with the girl’s argument. Read the following conversation.

Man: I pressed the like button by mistake so I will dislike it now.

Girl: Don’t dislike it. You have pressed the like button let it be as it is.

Man: No no, I will dislike. There is nothing to like.

Girl: Hey please don’t dislike.

Man: I will dislike. I just called you to inform that I am going to dislike your pic.

Girl: What do you think if you will dislike something will happen to me. I am getting 100 likes to my pictures.

Man: That’s good. Please enjoy today by 99 likes as I am going to dislike.

Girl: What the hell?

Man: It’s not hell. It was my mistake so I will rectify that.

Girl: Are you mad?

Man: I like only those pictures which are beautiful and attractive.

Girl: I am also beautiful and attractive.

Man: You? Not at all.

Girl: Just put the phone down.

Man: I am willing to but you are only increasing the conversation which is decreasing my balance.

Girl: Han to… Cancel the call.

Man: Ok… Just one minute. I want to say something.

Girl: What?

Man: You are not at all attractive so I will dislike your profile picture.

Girl: OMG…. Huh….

Really the above incident is funny. What do you say? Have you come across such unexpected calls… If yes how you responded that moment or share any such moment which you have observed… Just for fun 🙂 . .. Hope you have enjoyed reading… 😛

It rained a lot…


Sudden storm with lot of dust.
Making the surrounding full of dust.
Cloud bursting with full voice.
Echoing the environment with unnecessary noise.
Day became night due to dark cloud.
Suddenly barking voice started which was loud.
The situation was out of control.
Nothing was left to do the damage control.
Thunderstorm everywhere.
It rained a lot.
Yes, it rained a lot…
Not from the sky, but from the eyes.
It rained a lot.
Not from the sky, but from the eyes.
