    Very nicely and perfectly written Tapan. I also feel that negative bias is there from ages. It is not the only effect of social media. Think for a while that normally what do we count in a day? Good moments or mistakes and missed out things? Of course good moments are more but we don’t count those. Just change your counting method and be happy is the mantra !
