Looks like milleneals are outsmarting  the Greek Mythology character Narcissus with their selfie obsession.Who doesn’t admire  own face ??

You may even call it ‘Selfiecide”

Twitter has hashtag   Killfie

Is this an obscession or passion or ego or attitude or some psychological disorder(OCD)…difficult to pin point.

Two types of Killfies

  1. Single selfie causing single death.
  2. Single selfie causing multiple deaths.

No idea why maximum deaths are happening in India !
