“How are you?” That’s me.
“Hi,” comes the reply. A few seconds of pleasantries and fake names, “Please send your picture.”
Uh-oh. Two minutes of silence and the chat has been dropped.
In another window, someone asks if I am a girl. As I answer “No,” the window closes on me within seconds.
A third person asks me to text only in Hindi.
These are my first 10 minutes on the “Shake and Chat (with strangers)” feature of the social network app, called ShareChat.
