Social Media News, Critics, Criticism & Opinions

Are you an active person in Social Media? Then definitely you will be able to relate to my thoughts & reflect.


I’m not so sure about when I exactly started noticing these so called critics. But then it has got into my head during this Corona days. During these recent times, irrespective of the situation, news, or whatever may be, everyone has an opinion on it (Well, I’m not against voicing out opinions as it’s our right). But when you have an opinion on something especially when it is a highly serious one or an important social issue, or even politics, the one who is criticizing it should have atleast a minimum knowledge on that matter. That is not the case now. I have come across scenarios where, even a school student had made derogatory comments with no proper data or knowledge on the topic. It has become a fashion that if there is a news, people will have to make some comments whether or not they are aware of what it is. When a celebrity or any person which is liked by majority of the people, backs such news, then there is no second thought, it would be a blind follow up with so many statements & criticism floating around. Some even takes it to the level where they starts abusing the people who goes against them. Anyone with a phone & an active social media account, then the drama begins.

There are two types of news as well, these days. One is commercialized and the other is the genuine one. What happens is, the increase in news which has commercial value or a news with either political motive has gained success over the genuine one’s. Hence people nowadays are finding it difficult to understand & differentiate them. So whichever news comes in people just gives their opinions & some criticize it & the real news is lost somewhere.

“Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance.”- Plato

Any educated person should think twice when you step into those comment sections. Should give the thought if that is really necessary. Because at the end of the day, by dropping a comment, the criticism received or thrown at, or the abuse made in between the conversation is just not going to benefit either of the persons involved in it. If it’s a commercial thread then you are just being a moderator there in spreading the news and making it popular. Most of those viral news has no value to the people if you realize. You are just helping those social media pages to achieve their goal. So be wise before misusing your knowledge or energy. Opinions or constructive criticism is good to put it through, but then you should know where, to whom & the platform you are to put across.

The Calmness behind the Strength

There are lot of people amongst us who are so strong mentally. They can undergo any extreme scenarios in life and they face each of it confidently not bothering about the result.

Little Things ❤️😀

Have you all felt happiness in the little things in life?

We all run a busy life, kids busy with studies and games, teenagers busy with social media and lives in their own world, rest either busy at work or at home doing the chores and the list goes on..

Amongst these tight schedules and the stressful days, we all would have had moments where we go gaga with some silliest reasons. Might be a sudden hug from mom or a simple smile from a random person, a text from your loved one. It can even be that moment after you give a small helping hand to someone. Some soothing words or a little action can bring a change in everybody’s life.

So why not we all take the pledge to bring a smile in someone’s face. A little thing can make a big difference..!! 😊 Be a reason for someone’s happiness in life.

Mr & Mrs KAYA

These pictures just popped up as a result of my dad’s innovative thinking. He just came across these face like pieces amidst cutting vegetables(Well, my dad is an amazing cook..!!) and then asked me to click a picture of it. Then we thought why don’t we just create a character out of it, that’s how Mr. & Mrs. KAYA happened.

The first image is them posing for a click while the second is the one after a fight. 😉 Thought I would share this little creativity of God, the one who creates wonderful things, no matter what. 😊

Joy of Reading ~ The Dream

After starting my blog, the responses I received was overwhelming. It was totally unexpected. Among those conversations , I came to know from one of my college buddy that she had written a blog as well. Next moment she shared the link along with the access details as it was a private blog. Hmm…!! Well, I believe userid & password sharing is common among friends. Nothing official about it. 😉

I was having this conversation with her amidst my work schedule and I had no way to read that immediately. Informed her on the same and also promised to look into it soon after my day’s work is done. Even before checking it out, I was so sure that I have something amazing waiting to be read.

The wait was over, it was evening, my work day was over and there I was excited to read my friend’s blog. As promised, I clicked the link, shared by her,entered the credentials and finally ready to start off. I then started, “Wait For The Bloom”.

She started off with a warning that no matter what you would not get away with it(Girls be ready 😈) it was not the exact words though. I just liked the way she had put it. She went ahead describing about marriage. Then narrating on how it happened to her it, then moving on to their various visits soon after marriage, their honeymoon trip and how soon they started to have their backs. It went on describing the various occasions she had come across & she made sure to capture all the dates of each one of it with a picture of the moment which was a delight to my eyes.

Then came the surprise..!! Wow 😍 she is pregnant . She beautifully portrayed that feel of getting into motherhood. The trust she had in God even before it was confirmed technically and the care she initiated from the day she felt another life inside her was amazing.

She then continued with her post detailing the days of pregnancy and cravings which then ended with a little angel coming out of her. It was such a pleasure to read it. Being a girl, reading those beautiful memories just brought a happy tear in my eyes.

Every girl, in this world would definitely have a dream about her phase of wedding & motherhood. When we take a typical south Indian girl, her dream would be to have a list of all pre-wedding shopping list which she does with the help of her friends & family (Some things may not be in that common list😉). You know why, because for every bride to be, will have a group of friends & cousin’s who helps you prepare a secret list which would definitely be a fun for the “Team Bride”. Then to have a busy schedule, doing all purchases, getting dressed up and enjoying all beautiful moments.

On the day of wedding, draping herself in the elegant silk saree, wearing the appropriate jewels and walking into the mandapam(the hall), then making herself comfortable sitting near the groom, giving a glance with a glee. Then picturing the most awaited moment of the groom tying the knot to her and the crowd showering their blessings. It is always a dream moment for any girl.

Well more than the joy of this wedding dream, it’s always the thought of being a mother. Carrying a life within you, enjoying the nine months with an extra heart beat and all the care & attention you get from your husband & family, those would be the most precious days in every girl’s life which every women awaits in her lifetime.

I’m very thankful to my friend for sharing her precious memories with me and give me a walk-through of a lovely life which inspired me to write this post.

Live & Let Live..!! 😎


Has anyone realized that the mere thoughts about life or the scenarios you had to face makes you physically tired? If not, you can have it checked the next time as it’s something usual but we hardly realize.

It’s so important we live our life’s in the way we like. We all atleast once, would have come across the phrase “What would others think?” especially if you are an Indian. Well most of the time, our generation has an answer to it “I don’t care”. Perhaps, not all of us could follow the I don’t care policy as people are pressurized to the situations they are put up. It could be the thought about our parents, we unwilling does things which doesn’t excites us. But what is the gain in it? We sacrifice so much for our parents & family but is that all understood or reciprocated in a way which gives us happiness. Not often,I would say. Some may disagree with me while few doesn’t want to disclose it. It may not be the case in everyone’s life, but definitely it is a part of anyone who has taken up that responsibility of their family at a younger age. They do love their family but it’s just that they are locked up within the unbreakable boundaries.

Seldom, I have observed in people that I know, about handling such scenarios. Have wondered as well as respected such people. Not to mention that, I have also felt how it would feel like to restrict oneself from many things they would aspire to do.

There is something we all have to accept that, no matter what, our parents & family will always be there with us. Just because taking sometime for ourself will never tear them apart from our lives. Let it be choosing a decision to study or work abroad, be it buying something for yourself or maybe dressing up of your choice, even if it’s choosing your life partner, or anything which is bringing a joy to you should never be compromised. Our parents though they may oppose or dislike our decisions initially would definitely realize and stand with us always. The hard feelings they have with us will always fade away in the flow of our lives.

Don’t feel bad for wanting what you want and going for it.” ~Izey Victoria Odiase

So pals, let’s live a life we wanted and not just bound ourselves in a shell we our our society creates. Live and let live. 😊

A Lovely View After a Rainy Evening

Timee Capture Photography
The most missing spot of mine in recent days..!! One of my favorite clicks took with my Phone. ❤️

Who doesn’t love some silence? This was one such night of mine. One of my favorite pass time during night shifts is to go for a long walk, take some clicks like this, drink a black coffee and then push myself back to work. By the way, I bug my shift parter( my bro, as I call him) to join me. At times we go together else it happens to be my Me-Time. So this click happened during one such Me-Time. Yes, that’s my office building.

An awesome weather, no much people outside the blocks, so much of silence, the chill & tender breeze was brushing my skin as I walked. The only thing missing was that someone special to be by my side(Lovely weather would make anyone feel romantic. Don’t they?? 🙄) Well, it’s office anyway.😉 Amidst enjoying such a lovely time, got a call. It’s already an hour by then. I didn’t notice the time ticking. Now, that’s not my imaginary bf. It’s my bro calling..asking me to get back to work. I had to hault that enjoyment. However I managed to get this lovely click to add to my memory. ❤️
