Savage Side of Selfies


Selfie is not just a normal shot. People who frequently take selfies usually try to show themselves at their best. Some people I personally know, whenever they wear a new dress a selfie click is immediately posted on Facebook. When the “likes” and “comments” come in large numbers on our carefully selected selfies, it is like satisfying our inner self-image which is immeasurable.
In fact, by regularly trying to show people online our best, sometimes, takes us towards the fake world of fantasy. And in process of maintaining that fake online status we feel the death of compassion in ourselves. As Albert Einstein said: “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”

France’s Irrationality of Burkini Ban


What we are seeing in France is part of the continued criminalization of being Muslim. Particularly the criminalization of visibly Muslim people – particularly Muslim women. Women are coerced – with the threat of force – to take off their burins at the beach. ‘How would you feel if a nun was forced to take off her habit on a beach?’ Secular law doesn’t mean disrespecting religious sensibilities. It does mean tolerance for all by all, without favoritism. Briefly, EXTREMISM wins in irrational attitude of Secular France.
