Thesedays all over facebook there are people taking selfies with earthquake victims which makes me wonder how narcissistic have we become?

These people just lost the lives of their near and dear ones. They have lost everything they have worked all their lives for. They don't have a place to call their house and they are not sure what they are going to eat tomorrow and here you are, probably trying to help out to the best of your ability, but you cannot resist that selfie. You have to post it on facebook to show what a hero you are. It gives you perfect opportunity to show the world what a model citizen you are.

Really? You really want to post a selfie with those devasted people to blow your own horn?

तस्विर आफै बोल्छ रिथिंक ब्रो !




पवित्र बाइबलमा हाम्रो लर्ड जिजस क्राइस्तले भन्नु भाको छ !

"So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."

How can a person with little brain n heart take a selfie in that situation? I have seen some people taken a picture of distributing reliefs without notice which is absolutely fine but selfie ? That's inhumane and disrespectful.

In a way there is nothing inhuman. Any thing human can do, are doing are human activities, whether you like it or not. Whole thing reflects in what direction society is evolving. It shows what is becoming important in society. We like to be liked. We like to get likes, supported, thumped up, recognized. We like to be first, no matter what. In every thing we do, we have some kind twisted motive. Simple, uneducated, dumb people show it directly which we so called educated and mostly living in some other countries far from Nepal like to ridicule making ourself better and superior.

हेर दाजु भाई तथा दिदि बहिनीहरु हो,
सहयोग त गर्नु तर त्यो चाउचाउ बाढेको फोटो चै फेसबुकमा नहाल्नु हौ
हेर्दा हेर्दा दिक्क लग्यो हौ |

Nas respects bible but hates missionaries just like in Nepal who wants to donate only if victims change their religion.

Paradox your logic does not make any sense. Selfie means you are promoting yourself with your face. My nickname in sajha is anonymous so there is no self here and there is no promotion. I think you are ticked off because you probably have taken some selfies with the earthquake victims so you are trying to justify your own selfish actions by trying to negate my opinion. It seems like a lot of others share my feelings. So go look at your face in the mirror and flush your narcissism down the toilet.

On a positive note, I hope the pictures will inspire others to donate (with or without pictures). At other times, I would have complained. At this time, I feel happy to see photos of people donating.

rethink,
Your id here represents you or you identify yrself with your ID. When somebody agrees with your post here most likely you feel justified to your view, thinking which initself is some kind self enhancement of ego (personality). Whether somebody recognize you or not, end result is similar, self promotion, justification of something.

You said since more people here agree with you, so you saying i am wrong and and you are right. This is exactly what i am trying to convey to you. There are far more people who taking selfie and posting in FB or somewhere else. By seeing that most likely you already flushed yr face in toilet. Good luck !

Paradox,

You must have a very low self worth if you feel a sense of self enhancement or ego when someone agrees with your online post.

I am only expressing my opinion about selfies with earthquake victims who have already suffered enough.

Can you give me your opinion on whether you think it's a good thing to do that or not?

That's all :)

Who am i to decide what people are doing is good or bad? What they are doing (most of the people around the globe are in same page in different form including you) reflects the present society. You are judging people for their behavior with similar behavior and you dont see it which is hypocrisy. Ask those people who are taking selfie if they think they are doing wrong?

I guess you are entitled to your opinion. From your logic however it would seem that, if someone saw that people were eating shit and if he said eating shit is not good for you, then you would say 'you are eating shit molecules in the air as soon as you open your mouth.'

I can't argue with a logic like that. I let you win this one ;) congratulations on polishing your cyber ego ;)

paradox, of course you can decide whether people are doing is good or bad. that is called having an opinion. opinions could vary according to individuals. but i personally do not see any correlation with selfie with earthquake victimts and rethinks opinion about it.
now it just seems you are arguing for the sake of arguing

Thats the point fanatic! Opinion depends on the person on his background, conviction, whim, situation, mood, language, culture, upbringing and so on. Your opinion is yr background (but there are other twisted things as well, such as we are some thing but would like to appear something else making it even more meaning less). So it is better give opinion in such a way that you stating yr conviction, desire, motive without judging whether other people are right or wrong. Opinions are never right or wrong. Opinions are just conditioned response of chaotic mind.

Back to the topic: as a donor living abroad I want proof that the donation reached the victims and pictures give me a proof of that. Does it have to be a selfie? No. But I definitely want pictures.

"Amazed at your pro-bible post !"

Isn't that a "paradox" ? No pun intended !

येतोमिक ब्रोले मेरो मनको कुरो भन्दिनु भैहाल्यो ! फुर्के ब्रो, म कहा एन्टाई क्रिस्चियेंन, एन्टाई बाइबल हूँ र ! येतोमिक ब्रोले भन्न भाको जस्तै मेरो रिस त् खालि इसाई मिसनरी दलालहरु जो नेपालमा धर्मको व्यापार गरि, गरिब निमुखालाइ लोभ, लालचा, पैसा दिएर वा "प्रभु" लाइ अपनाएर इसाईमा परिणत भयो भने रोग निको हुन्छ, आदि इत्यादि डर, त्रास देखाएर धर्म परिवर्तन गराउने माटोकने खाते इसाई मिसनरीको लागि मात्र हो !

अस्ति जबर्जस्ति ति इसाई मिसनरी दलालहरुले अस्पतालमा बाइबल बाढधै हिडेकोले चै बाइबलले पनि मार गालि खाको हो मेरो बाट !

म अफ्फई पनि एउटा हिन्दु बुद्धिस्ट भाको नाताले लर्ड जिजसलाइ धेरै माया र सम्मान गर्दछु ! जो इसाईले हाम्रो धर्म संस्कृतिको सम्मान गर्दछ म पनि उसको उति नै सम्मान गर्दछु !

तर जो इसाईले हाम्रो धर्म र देव देवीहरुलाइ शैतान भन्छन, तिनीहरुको कन्चट तताउन एस्तो फोटोहरु देखाउञ्छु !

It was an open secret,that,people change appropriately with time and,gradually evolve in many varied ways,accordingly with their taste and preference.The touch of new technology and innovations,which emerge every other week has significantly shaped people's behaviours,lifestyles,while entirely redefining their virtual life and beyond--and doing so--expressing and connecting in interesting and sometimes,weird ways.

Selfies,these days,is no longer a modish act but is already a part of culture among literate and illiterate alike.As millions of "Selfies" shoot-up each new day,there may also arise,crowd of selfies,which,for some,could be sensitive and quite uneasy to witness.One person selfie or idea,could be upbeat for some team but it equally could be upsetting for some other ring.People,in present time,like to live in a moment and also harbor a wish to capture those moment and mobile-handy-cam has appeared as a magical invention to fulfill those needs.

However,there is always a chance to misuse it as most and many humans are very prone to get easily distracted by the affairs,completely forgetting the range and impact of such acts.As most people are Not designed to be liked by each and everyone,which at time,could come up with more direct and more accurate snap or idea that they would like to think of,there comes a big demand to comprehend both sides of a coin.Yes,there are swanky ones who cash-in,in every new-found opportunities for their self-glorification plan but there are many too,who involuntary snap it for the expression.To understand those and to check such acts,one must go beyond his/her own realm and ability,to fully understand and appreciate what's they are viewing and what's been offered from the individuals,who are unlike themselves.
