These days in my country, accidents are increasing due to Selfie Mania. Specially train accidents. People try to click selfies in railway tracks and hit by trains. Recently, I heard about newly married couple were dead due to train accident during their honeymoon trip. Also two brothers in same family were dead. All of them were trying to click selfies on railway tracks and hit by trains. What a tragedy.... People shouldn't do these kinda foolish things. I wonder how people plunge by them selves...

@Bodyandbrain I agree this selfie mania is really causing unwanted mishaps and accidents. People try to take selfies on hill cliffs, on sea shore, river sides...sometimes they do not realize the unforeseen danger. Now the high point is trying to take selfie on the door of a moving train with door open.

I heard about a similar incident happened in India. Dont know all the details of it. I hope people realise that their life is more important than a selfie

That doesn't sound like an ideal way to take a selfie I wish I knew what got into a person's head to try something like that. I hope that this foolishness stops soon. I don't think we have that kind of problems with selfies like that here I live. I think it is sad that people do that as life is more important than a selfie

Exactly this habbit is all over the country. People love to see their images likes or rating by their friends and never thinks of their life that is more and more valuable than a mere smart phone.
Modern Mobiles have many advanced features than mere calling. All smart phones have the facility of Selfie. It gives the chance of the photo shooter to join the...
