Exciting Selfie

From the cliff top
exquisite, stunning view
of the landscape, the valley below
Ajay thought it beautiful
but couldn't dwell on it

He was busy adjusting camera
for better n better angles
visualizing the impact, it's thunder
on FB, instagram,other social media
this pleasant thought and feeling lingered
even as he slipped and fell into valley
down, down, down below....

  6. The sad truth. Now-a-days people are more interested in social media likes than seeing the actual beauty of the explored places. Their enthusiasm is not even dampened by the thought of safety :(
