Two Class X students, Yash Kumar and Shubham Saini, lost their lives while taking selfies on a railway track in Delhi’s Mayur Vihar.
It is unfortunate that Instagram celebrities such as Angela Nikolau, the dare-devil Russian who clicks selfies on top of death-defying structures, are popular among the youth. The urge to garner maximum likes on social media has taken a heavy toll on our country’s selfie-obsessed youth.
India has the unfortunate record for most deaths by selfie since 2014. 57 Indians have lost their lives...all for a selfie.
In what is a completely avoidable situation, all we can worry about is the grief-stricken family members who have to deal with this heavy loss due to irresponsible use of technology.
