Face Value And Face Off
Face Value And Face Off2 mins 227 2 mins 227
Recently I came across two different tweets from two different male personalities with different backgrounds. These two have nothing in common and are in fact diametrically opposite to each other, both in appearance and intellect. I have my own reasons and interests for following these two well-known persons. I shall now recall to you the tweets made by them.
Tweet - 1: This tweet was made by Tollywood superstar (male actor); he posted a video wherein he is seen packing his suitcase after which he tweeted "almost ready to go on a long vacation to a beautiful place (can't disclose the destination) with my 2 lovely kids and adorable wife who deserve this break after being confined at home for 8 long months".
Well, I did not find anything sensational in his tweet. But his tweet received about 67000 likes within a couple of hours. I was both stunned and amused by this huge and spontaneous positive response. This man definitely has a "Face value", I said to myself!
Tweet - 2: This tweet was made by a climate expert and well-known environmentalist who also happens to be a social activist voicing his concerns and fears over climate change. He tweeted the following: "time to think of safe and viable alternatives to stubble burning which is the main cause for rising pollution and very poor air quality index (severe category) in New Delhi and adjoining areas".
Well, this was a very relevant and meaningful tweet meant to save our lives and SAVE OUR FACE. But unfortunately and sadly, this important tweet did not receive a single response/single like even after several hours of being tweeted. I was the only one who responded angrily by replying "Are you all aware - need of the hour?"
It was evident that nobody was aware, nobody was interested and nobody cared a damn!
This man was definitely a visionary but did not have a "Face value". In other words, he lacked a face that could reach out to people in thousands or in millions.
In India "Face" matters a lot but lives do not matter at all!
