Mobiles have become part of our lives in last few years. Selfie craze is getting higher among people. People are taking risks to take selfies in unknown and dangerous places.
I saw a news on TV a few months back when a girl lost her life while taking selfie on a hilly area. After this incident many youngsters lost their lives in different incidents but the reason was the same.
Taking selfie is not a crime but one must not put his life in danger. Climbing on mountain cliffs or heights just to prove your courage can give your family a life time grief.
Rahul was the only son of his parents. He went on a trip to Dehradun with his friends. They were riding bikes on hilly roads. Rahul’s friend asked him to perform a stunt. Rahul tried to capture his picture while driving. He lost his balance and fell down from height.
Nobody could save him. His parents are still in trauma and don’t believe that Rahul will never return. Mobile phones are getting better. Front cameras are giving clearer image in high definition. It doesn’t mean that we should forget our social responsibilities and take risks of life. You can fulfill your interests in any other way. Don’t make it a craze in which other factors are completely ignored. Don’t get involved in those groups who don’t follow rules. Always remember that your family is waiting for you. Taking pictures near flooded rivers or at the edge of a bridge can kill your dreams in a second. Going inside sea or rivers without precautions can be dangerous because water levels can any time rise. You won’t get enough time to sustain your balance.
It’s my request to young readers not to take risks just to upload a picture on Facebook or Instagram. Social media is a medium to show your talent. Don’t make it a platform of competition in which the result will be a total loss. Be responsible and encourage your friends to avoid taking selfies on roads and other risky places.
