Living in fear

Even the strong hearted these days are not comfortable when dangers lurk everywhere. Look at the way one had his cell phone in his pocket and it caught fire. There was smoke everywhere when he pulled it out and flung it. He was at a restaurant and everyone were panic stricken. My mother died at a ripe old age and the only fear she had was how she would rear her brood with limited funds.
The man was having lunch at a restaurant in Bhandup in Mumbai when the phone exploded in his pocket and fumes came out of it, according to CCTV footage.

If this happened in the USA the man would have sued the phone manufacturer for damages and any pain and suffering and probably come out of the experience rich enough to buy several new phones.

Hi. We will never be sure as to when it will strike. That is another fear.

Overcoming fear is next to impossible for most of us.

Add to that the killings everywhere. The world is a dangerous place to live in nowadays. We just gotta trust in God for protection.

Maybe God forgot us. Why doesn't God stop all the evil in this world?

This is so strange. Why is the mobile phone on fire? Is it because the quality of this mobile phone is not good?

Wow, that is very bad news. It won't happen to me as I don't have a mobile. Maybe one day I will have and then I'll need to worry about it.

There was this story I read some time ago where a group of girls were on the beach and one of them collected all the phones while the rest went into the water to wet their feet as they say Lightning struck and the girl with the mobiles in hand lost her life instantly as all the phone were live at the time.

Mobiles should not be placed in pocket or where they can harm the person.

It happened a few weeks ago inside an airplane, that was even more scary. Those cellphones are not at all safe.

There should be a brake in technology in the interest of mankind I have stopped going in for so many things that I see around.

@allknowing I agree, they should make those objects more safe and stop trying to make new ones only to make money.

I wonder what on earth caused that phone to explode. I have heard of it happening before, but who in the world would think that that would happen to them.

Best is not to have mobiles placed in pockets.

I was driving home one day on the motorway and felt my phone getting warmer and warmer in my pocket. Then I could smell burning, luckily I was able to pull over and get the phone out and threw it on the ground! It completely melted!

There have to be intense technical failure and bootlegged technology for that kind of thing to happen. Even when the Samsung Galaxy 8 was having issues, it didn't happen to everything and thankfully people were able to get it fixed.

Gadgets also become dangerous these days. It is very dangerous to use the same while lightning and thunders. Regarding fears, all of us are own fears. Even we may say no fears but situations comes, then courage would not be present.
