Yeah, FB has long been a verb too, right?
If you thought this post is about the girl who is supposed to have uttered blasphemy, you are mistaken. Well, how can anyone dare to blog about it? I’m scared my uncle’s factory in Ambattur will be ransacked, never mind that he retired from the business a decade ago. If you really want to read a post about it, visit IHM’s blog. To express discontent or condemn any such thing just because a youngster’s freedom of expression was seized, would be a waste of time because Facebook by itself is a first-world thing, and we are not to worry or obsess over first-world like problems. Lets not talk about being a progressive nation. Its kind of romantic to stay nomadic and express anger by bringing physical harm to people and their property.
Ok, I’ll get back to the actual matter of the post. This happened y’day morning when Varun was on his way to the school with his dad.
Varun: Appa, naan style-aa pose kudukaren. Enna oru photo eduthu, Facebook-le podureya.
English: Dad, I’ll strike a stylish pose. Can you click my picture and post it on FB?
That is a 3.5yr old for you finding FB as a medium of sharing his ‘stylish’ photo. Am aware that FB is a first-world luxury. I can’t help the access I have to information. And I choose to share what little I have, with my children. I mean, freedom to express.
