The social media, like WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook are becoming dominant factors in what we think and communicate today. A whole new culture is evolving around them. It needs another blog post – perhaps several- to deal with them.
Now I want to speak only ab0out a picture with a message that went viral recently. A post in Hindi I got on W-App last week said a picture posted on Twitter by Suren of Hyderabad vent viral and got prompt responses from several, including the Telangana Minister for Education who, along with the HRD ministry at the Centre, were tagged in the post.
Suren’s post showed a KG student standing in line for the school morning prayer, with a half-eaten paratha peeping out of the uniform’s pocket. “Morning’s unfinished breakfast in pocket and sleepy eyes — kindly think of school from 10 to 5,” the tweet said.
