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.” 🙂

Ignoring the beauty of life…


 

Looking at every aspect of life.
We do ignore the beauty of life.
During the midst of happy and sad.
We really become, sometimes mad.
Chasing the one which we don’t need.
Lands us in situation of greed.
Even the heart says it is wrong.
We indulge in doing the wrong.
Involving in the thorny path.
We ignore the present golden path.
Instead of finding the positive.
We do find negatives in positive.
Leaving the glorious beauty aside.
We move towards the unhealthy side.

One needs to have introspection.
Instead of indulging in conspiration.
Life has several layers to come.
Good or bad, we need to overcome.
During the sole honeymoon period.
We forget the struggle period.
One should learn from the mistakes of past.
Rather than blaming the past.
The mindset needs to be changed.
Then only we can bring a change.
Harsh reality still persists.
As…
Looking at every aspect of life.
We do ignore the beauty of life.
Ignore the beauty of life.

Some unusual questions and their answers…


We often come across several questions in our life. Some are answerable and some are not. But, what about those questions which are answerable but we are not willing to answer the same.  In this post I will be talking about those questions which sometimes irritate us. The person raising those questions knows the answers but then also he/she rises. The reason may be for fun or intentionally to irritate others or to make the serious situation lightly.

Q.1. You came from office?

The answerable person had just now reached home from office with irritated mind and feels uncomfortable with this question. Irritatingly he responds, “ No no, this is not me. This is my clone standing in front of you. The real me is on the way. I came just to answer your query.”

Q.2.  A person goes to his friend’s house and enquires about his presence. His wife responds that he is in bathroom.

By knowing that he is in bathroom, the person asks that is he taking bath there? Wife gets irritated and responds that, “No actually he forgot to do exercise today and so is doing now in bathroom as nobody can disturb him in bathroom. Also after performing the exercise he will indulge in some religious activities which will take an hour for sure. You want to join him? “

Q.3. You are taking medicines. Do you have any health issues?

Irritated by the question, the respondent replies, “No, actually I have never tasted any medicines in my life till now. So I thought of taking various medicines with different taste ranging from sour, bitter, sweet etc and also I am trying different flavors. After that I will also taste the medicines for different diseases and then I will be preparing a report and submit before you for review.”

Q.4. Hey you have sent me your marriage invitation. Are you getting married?

The person who sent the invitation is actually getting married and thinking to the question for a while, the person responds, “The reason why I sent my marriage invitation is because I wanted to know how marriage happens. So I thought of doing a mock test of marriage before I actually get married.  The idea came in my mind and hence I invited you along with others. Hope you will be present. It is not the actual marriage but a form of dry run. “

 

There are many such questions which we face in our life. Sometimes we enjoy and sometimes we get irritated. I hope you have enjoyed reading those questions and silly answers. J  😛 Many of you might have encountered with the similar questions mentioned above. Please share your experience to those questions, how will you respond and will you enjoy or get irritated on encountering such questions. 🙂

Closed all the doors…


I came suddenly in your life.
Giving both of us, a reason to survive.
You were mine and I was yours.
At a sudden, you closed all the doors.
Left me alone without giving me the reason.
I was shocked with this shattered situation.
You were the reason for happiness.
Now, you are the only reason for sadness.
You went to an unknown world.
Devastating our happy world.
Come back soon or it will be too late.
Without you I can’t survive for more days.
I remembered all those memories.
When…
You were mine and I was yours.
At a sudden, you closed all the doors.
Closed all the doors.

Why do people react so often ???


There are time when we come across situations where the conversation among the two persons becomes aggressive suddenly and we are left in shocking condition. We wonder what went wrong suddenly? The reason for such reactions can be many from suppressing the anger to intentionally reacting to get rid of the conversation, and at the same time, avoid interacting with such person in future as well. Also sometimes the problem which can be resolved properly becomes complex due to such reactions. In a group also if everything is going fine and suddenly one of the group members reaction is not up to the mark, things become complicated. The problem which can be solved politely and peacefully becomes complex and sometime going in to never solving state. But what make people to react at a sudden?

There are many who pretend to be too familiar and behavioral with friends or groups and leave no stone unturned to maintain such status in front of others even though they aren’t. And from the back they continue to criticize you unnecessary which hurts when it comes in to your knowledge. Also it may happen when you need any assistance from these people because you think them to be humble enough, you may get a reverse reaction from them and it happens. I am sure many of you who are going through this post have experienced this in your life.  So, what can be said about those? Are such reactions optimal and feasible enough to continue?

Life is good when we are good to others. Behavior is one of the most important aspects in life which can make or break relations, which can be of any kind. Does such kind of unnecessary behavior required? We are human beings and we commit mistakes and that’s how we learn as learning is a continuous process. But what about those who commit mistakes and never acknowledge and continue to indulge in blame game? Newton’s 3rd law of motion says “every action is having an equal and opposite reaction”. In case if someone gives such reaction, shall we also start giving such response to those? Is tit for tat is the solution?

But one question which still remain unanswered is Why do people react so often even though if it is not required??? What is your view on this… Please share in the form of your comment… 🙂
