Keeping interesting WhatsApp status to impress others or otherwise!
Although keeping a peculiar status on WhatsApp has become a fashion to feel happy, it has no technical significance.

Most of the persons have kept the original by default ? Hey there! I am using WhatsApp but some display with beautiful quotes in the language of their choice ? English, Hindi or Punjabi.  They are least bothered about posting the status in 'about and phone number'.

One of my very close relative, who is very fond of frequently changing his mobile handsets with the newer models acquiring them of the very first day of their launch puts his status as 'First Samsung S8' so that everybody in his contacts could know he has purchased the first piece.

While some statuses are very funny, some are message able. The quotes like ? Success means nothing - if it is easy to achieve, you live only once if you live right once is enough, one positive thought can change the whole day etc.

Not only this, some are seen putting on the official status of the particular organization.  One of the senior officers was seen keeping it with a cap ? the magician with his racquet wand.

Even, I have observed that some of the users dedicate to near and dears ? Love my Noor a lot.  Some of the users in my groups have have posted the status ? Hell has three gates: lust, anger, and greed, I'm aware, I'm rare and respectful, Jindgi Jinda Dili Ka Naam Hai, Duniya Chahe Jo Marzi Samje, Bebe Lai Tan Mein Hero Aa and so on.  Some of them keep it as ? At work, Available or Planning.

Really, sometimes, it keeps you waiting the posted contents when the position on the particular account as 'typing?.', as if visible to others looking as if he is typing the contents or reply to the post.

In fact, the WhatsApp status speaks the kind of personality one posses.  It could be a symbol of the current situation that the persons may be facing. But each status defines the current irresistible thought that the persons experience.

Decoding the idea behind keeping the status is a very difficult question when only a dot is put as a full stop as WhatsApp don't allow keeping a blank status.  What I feel is that such people are unknown of their spontaneous behaviour and they put it perhaps to signify as if they are bored with the changing status words repeatedly and want to put a full stop for a while.

Frankly speaking, while thinking about the different statuses being kept by WhatsApp users, it came to my mind to know the importance of it. Interestingly, a young doctor friend of mine had kept his status as ? Planning.  For a moment I thought, as to what planning would be in his mind, his parents are retired and well settled, both brothers are also doing well and married and both have kids ? boy and girl a complete family.

As a curiosity, I made a call to him and after a casual talk I asked him: Dear, what does the planning status on your WhatsApp mean when everything is OK at your end. Without waiting for a fraction of a second, he said in a very romantic mood, "I am quite young, there is always a plan to extend the family".

Then I decided not to prod this issue any further. Whatever may be the reasons behind the wordings of the status, one thing is certain that these are to attract or impress others.
