Perception is not more important than life!
As a PR, I often say that we are living in a world where perception is reality. What people think of us and how they perceive us has become more important than who we really are, or what the reality is.
But the moment we understand that perception is not greater than our being, our whole perspective towards life can take a new meaning.
The learned persons have said that the greatest risk in life is not taking one. However, should the risk be so great that it may take away life itself — this is a question all selfie clickers should ask themselves from time to time.
And we Indians need to ask ourselves this question more often than peoples of other countries, as India tops the list of selfie deaths, closely followed by Pakistan, USA, Russia, Philippines and China.
