The Oxford dictionary picked Post-Truth as the word of the year in 2016. Though the word itself was coined in 1992, its hype has reached its peak in 2016. The unbelievable and truthfully scary events that occurred this year perhaps have been the catalyst on capturing the attention of people on this word. Post-truth can be defined as a situation where someone lets emotions or personal beliefs triumph over actual evidence or hard facts. The post-truth age we live in has not just come to be. It has been decades or even centuries in the making with several factors contributing to its form. This situation has always been there, like an unspoken rule in ones household, never outright acknowledged but strongly present. Every person has their own perspective and interpretation of truth. While someones perception might be the right fit for them, it is not necessarily true for everyone else. It is important to remember that we are a part of the larger set and our own version of truth might not hold good for everyone. Today though, with the globalisation and the prowess of the internet, the rest of the world has never been more accessible and smaller. People from all across the globe realise that something that happens in the United States could affect them in more ways than they could realise. We have to learn to accept that there are more opinions than one and the judgments we make, and the statements we chose to believe might not automatically be the best. In fact, I believe that there is no such thing as the best version of the truth. All of us perceive the same information in different ways and take away different things. That in itself is not wrong. But we should be ready to accept and deal with the reality that the truth we believe might just be faulty. Only then maybe we can try and reach a consensus and successfully manage to exorcise the ghost of the truth that haunts all of us. It may not be possible to find a solution to fill the gaps that the structure of today's politics causes. But it is nevertheless imperative to have an open and porous dialogue where everyones views and beliefs are given unbiased priority and thought.

Every morning before I get on with my day, like any other teenager my age I usually try and surf the internet. This I do, not just to keep with the prerequisites of being a social human but also because just going through the most random content on the internet helps inspiration dawn. And with today like any other, I was going through some YouTube videos. And I chanced upon a random thirty-six facts that might surprise video and some of them were not that surprising, others were just boring but one did catch my attention. It was that every two minutes approximately we click more pictures now than were clicked in the entire 19th century. Two minutes to a hundred years! The comparison is just insane.
While this simply could be just because in comparison to the 19th century we have significantly better technology now, and it is much easier to save them and maintain several photographs for minimal cost. But this got me thinking, why do we click so many photos now anyway? From selfies to pictures of our loved ones, things we see, things we eat, things we want others to see and things for proof. Its fascinating and bizarre this obsession we have with capturing moments.
I must admit, I am no better. In my head, the justification for pictures has just been such that years down the line I wanted something to look back on, I was in a sense capturing all the smiles, jokes, conversations and laughter in that one click. But I think maybe the reason could be bigger than that. Perhaps in a world where constantly the realization about how insignificant you are, dawns on you in many ways, many times, a photo is some sort of certification that you matter. That somehow in your own way, you have made a difference in this world. Or it could be as simple as your outfit is on fleek and you want to show off. Meh, who knows?
