Sunil Garodia By our team of in-house writers.
Politicians today have pulled out all stops to ingratiate themselves with the youth. The easiest way to do so is to show themselves as tech savvy and aware of latest trends. Taking selfies and posting them on social media is one such trend that has caught the imagination of both, the youth and the ruling classes.

But some selfies can be so out of focus that they can land you in trouble. Pankaja Munde found this when she posted one from her visit to the drought affected areas in Maharashtra. Immediately, social media asked her to dubo in chullu bhar paani for her insensitive act.

If you see the picture, you will find that Munde is smiling and posing as if she is on a sightseeing excursion. If she had posted pictures of the parched land, the suffering people and her meetings with district officials, people would have appreciated that she was working to alleviate their hardships. But Munde has shown she is incapable of handling issues judiciously.
