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.” 🙂

Unnecessary Laughs…


As it is said, “laughter is the best medicine”, and we do enjoy laughing. The reason of laugh may or may not be genuine but we do laugh whenever we get a chance.  🙂 Laughing is really beneficial for health, no doubt. There are also situations where we laugh unnecessary without any reason. It also happens that people starts laughing in serious situation. Consider the following scenarios:

  • Suppose you are going by train and successfully boarded it at the pick-up station. Meanwhile after few hours of journey, you lost your mobile which contains the soft copy of your ticket. You got nervous as the ticket checker is on the way to check yours. By knowing this, one of the passenger start laughing loudly looking at you. He is laughing in such a manner which made other people laugh as well. How will you going to react?
  • You went to a marriage ceremony and due to some reason; conflict arose between your close friends. Instead of handling and trying to help in negotiation, you started to laugh by looking at your friends. You laughed a lot and suddenly your friend came and scolded you but you continued to laugh… may be due to some other reason…
  • You went to watch a movie and there is a serious scene going on in the movie. Most of the audience including your friends with whom you went is very serious and some are crying as well due to the emotional scene. But you are in your own world and suddenly started to laugh in such a manner like someone has cracked a big joke. People around you looked at you in a serious manner and you realized that something is really serious. What explanation will you give for this? 🙂

There are many other circumstances where we come across such situations. Sometimes we definitely enjoy. If you ask from me, I do laugh even though if it is not required. The third case is an excerpt from my incident. 😛  Frankly speaking, I enjoy that time when my laugh irritates others.  LoL… 😛

What is your take on such laugh? Do you enjoy or get irritated? Share your experience…  And do answer this question, What is the reason behind such unnecessary laughs?

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… 🙂

Walking in the streets of life…


Walking in the streets of life.
Never found a reason to survive.
Ups and downs came frequently.
I lost my momentum suddenly.
Hoping everything to be fine someday.
I started to live in disguise everyday.
Gone are the days when I used to smile.
At a sudden, started to give fake smile.

Heart wrenched and trust broke.
At that moment I lost all the hope.
During the midst of day and night.
I was looking for a ray of light.
Gave all my effort whenever required.
Never got what I always deserved and desired.
Leaving all these in the buried part of the heart.
That left me in the situation with hurted heart.

Life is full of ups and downs.
Without struggle one can’t get a crown.
I have fallen and fought the situation.
Now its time to create a new option.
A journey to reach a new destination.
With more confidence and positive determination.
Although the chances are few.
As…
Walking in the streets of life.
Never found a reason to survive.

Doing the karma…


Every time I see a good sign.
It ends with a negative time.
During the midst of day and night.
I never had a time with positive light.
Darkness spread all the way around.
Momentarily losing my sound.
Betrayal, trust broke.
Hope ended in a sudden stroke.
No regrets what I have done for others and what others had done.
I am just doing the karma.

Lost in the darkest side of my own shadow.
Searching for a place which is at least hollow.
Heart wrenched and soul teared.
Repetition of the same, I always feared.
Eyes became watery and face was red.
Walking alone, I was a living dead.
Swallowed everything in the deep of my heart.
Its true from inside and outside, I was hurt.
No complain for all the mess which have come.
I am just doing the karma.

Unwanted situations coming again and again.
Its time for me to convert this to gain.
Reality needs to be accepted.
Rather than to remain frustrated.
Time will change this is for sure.
For the present I need to assure.
No regrets for all the pains which have come.
I am just doing the karma.
Walking on the path of dharma.
I am just doing the karma.
Just doing the karma.
