If imported, it is certainly a big buy, even if there are minor quality issues who cares? But if degrees are premier,love is certain. Rest can and will be blissfully ignored. Compatibility ? Huh ? What’s that got to do with marriage?
So when an elitist and sexist offensive advert splashed on a national newspaper, it drew a huge backlash, I was taken by surprise. Didn’t we do this to ourselves? The gentleman duly apologized for the mistake , but it is a classic case of shooting the messenger when the whole society or at least a large part of it is behind this mindset. But who’s listening?
It takes 52 seconds approximately to recite our National Anthem and that is how long the sense of patriotism lasts for the day, and the rest is for Freedom Sales, freedom from routine, freedom from work, freedom to relax and freedom of spirit flowing through our veins.

Take a look at the advertisements around us and you will notice words like “Mean-Machine”, “Killer-shot” , or in sports “that went like a tracer bullet”, or in food “that’s like gunpowder hot” or even birthdays “Have-a-blast” , defining excellence in ability,taste or even celebration.

The recent article in CNN about how an American woman got groped,masturbated at, stared and filmed on her visit to India has raked up 800,000 views. The question here is -what perception does it trigger about a first time traveller to India ?

What difference does it make to your life if there was an Area 51 or not? Or whether it really made a difference to your Monday morning ride to work? Or your evening stroll to the bar? Zilch.
