Is this new Fashion?

Folks,

Whenever I see desi channels, be it a soap or news or some bollywood reated story/event, I noticed one thing common.

Ppl are carrying their cell phone in hand like they are showing it off.

Not only common ppl, but actors/actresses and politicians.
Even if they are on stage to say something or coming for an award or a neta surrounded by chamchaas or kaaryakartas of party.

Even here in US also desi's do this too. If they are at a party or gethering, they are carrying damn phone in their hands or just flippin around in their palm.

Is this a new desi fashion or what?

Juss curious. Saw some neta doing this in morning news channels.

No, they are all aspirants for the next version of the Verizon "Can you hear me now" cell phone network campaign. So they are just checking if they have cellular coverage.

Re: Is this new Fashion?

I had the same question in my mind for eons now. I guess in India its a fashion statement and also a status symbol based on kiskay paas kitna mahnga phone.
Here, I will take a leaf out of sunit's post and quote as is.
