Maybe, it's a case of them being immature enough to understand the importance of the moment or it's a case of us being rigidly mature enough not to understand the changing trend. We have had a simple pooja, then carried on with our works, so far NO selifes for us.
I find today's youth at New Year Celebration and adults to an extent at functions all focussing on the photos and selfies, rather than focussing on the occasion of sharing joy and happiness. People are eager to gather around, are bubbling with excitement and come decked up in layers, just when you think it's going to be a fun-filled event, you see people tilting their heads and trying to fit into a selfie with various angles. A group selfie or two is fine but the entire time is (mis)used for the selfie sessions.
It is even more embarrassing to see young people in groups or as pairs at temples trying to get a selfie with the idol in the background. Even this morning, I witnessed two people trying out a selfie at 10 AM, they willfully forget the pointed stares given by adults and senior citizens around them.
