et’s close our eyes and say a prayer for Snapchat. A target has been painted on their backs and it isn’t going to fade away in 24 hours. So take a selfie with a mournful filter and shed a tear, because it’s time, dearly beloved, for Snapchat to be put to rest.

It has now become painfully obvious that Snapchat must die. And along with it must die also Snapdeal, snap pea, and even the very word snap. In fact, Indian children across kindergartens will no longer be allowed to “snap their fingers and clap their hands.” A petition calling for a ban on the nursery rhyme is doing the rounds and one billion Indians are expected to sign it.
