Some just can’t resist taking Selfies

My brother was on a quick visit today (as part of his business visit to the city) carrying with him some Diwali sweets sent by my mother. I am happy that they came unharmed and packed. Usually if the train got delayed or if he is hungry he would help himself to the eatables my mother sends me. So there is no guarantee that they would ever reach me safely.  But I digress. So he comes home, he sees my new phone, checks it out and what does he do to validate it is a good one ? He takes a selfie. And declares that the selfie has come out good and hence the phone is good. I was like ‘dude, really ?’ I did not pay 13k for the camera, even though it is good too. He is one of those who can’t resist from taking selfies. Earlier it used to be just him. Now that he is married, his selfies mostly includes his wifey too. No wonder there is a song for people like him in the new and upcoming Tamil movie ‘Kaththi’ (meaning knife).

This is just a small clip from that song, but the English translation  goes like this

I have Terabytes and Terabytes of love for you

Making me go crazy when I am consumed byte-by-byte by you

Lets live our life through Instagram

By shooting (using camera i.e.) every second of our lives

When we get together there is bound so much fun

That even the Facebook likes and shares are bound to breakdown.

Instagramming it

Now that I have got a new and cool smartphone with better camera and all, I decided to give Instagram (photos.by.kg) a go. I sincerely hope it doesn’t go the Twitter way. I configured it yesterday night and uploaded a couple of photos. And I added the widget on the right hand side too (yay!). I still have to figure a few things out and play with it (right from how to post one). But if you have an Instagram account do let me know and I will look it up.

Have a great day ahead.
