Last summer I was in a restaurant with my daughter and a family arrived and sat behind us. For the first couple of minutes they were really loud and arguing with each other, then there was silence - and for the rest of the meal each of them was on their phone and didn't say another word. Another phenomenon I've come to dislike is the over-used selfie. So often you see people standing in front of beautiful sights but obscuring them in their photos by taking selfies. At the weekend I went to a music festival and had to laugh to see the people standing with their backs to the band, taking selfies so that they and the band would appear in the same photo, which I guess would then be uploaded to Facebook or Instagram. However I have to say I do use social media a lot and often post pictures of quirky things I see in my day to day life in India (though NEVER selfies!) Today one of my lovely ex-colleagues posted the spoken word video by Prince Ea. I think it is an important message. Over 11 million people have viewed it, but in case you are one of those who hasn't I'm posting it here. Enjoy!
