So some bulk e-mail mailing agent must have pulled my ID onto their list. And since the last 2 weeks, I have received offers in the morning for a selfie stick at 73% discount. Selfie stick?! Over the years, I haven’t quite understood why must someone take selfies. I admit, the phenomenon was observed as… Continue reading From Narcissism to Selfie Sticks

In the past two decades, technology has changed the way we look at life. And seriously, let us take a step back from the… Continue reading Neither did heat matter. Nor rain.
