Black and white challenge - Social media's latest viral trendIf you have an Instagram account and scroll it down, you can observe the trending of black-and-white pictures of women, posting selfies or photos with their faces, with the hashtag, #ChallengeAccepted. Many celebrities including Malavika Mohanan, Saara Ali Khan, Khloe Kardashian, Shilpa Shetty, Karishma Kapoor and Dia Mirza, have shared their black and white pictures. This is a global trend that reached India paving a way for women to show solidarity and their support to other women. Almost all posts have the hashtag #ChallengeAccepted, and #WomenSupportingWomen. The common feature of their theme is bringing positivism in life in this crucial hour inculcating many netizens to throw inspiring challenges online.
Accepting the challenge Shilpa Shetty has posted an inspiring message, I quote ,- "We're living in times where we now realise the importance of lifting each other up instead of pulling someone down. We are gradually acknowledging the truth that tomorrow isn't guaranteed to any of us. So, all we have is 'today'... and we have each other. Let's join forces together and make each day better for everyone around us. Support our women tribe through the worst times, lend a helping hand (if possible) when you see another woman juggling too many things, and appreciate the efforts one has put in even if they didn't succeed. We're all in this together. Uplift, don't belittle'. "
Previously we used to have Black and White photographs which was almost forgotten with the dominance of 'Colourful world' and now back to square. Of course, Old is always Gold!
