Did someone change the meaning of success, confidence & beauty ?

After a looong time, today i spent some time in front of the tv.

Then came the commercial break. An already fair lady, is about to leave with a hesitant look & she then is given a chota pack of a famous so called 'fair'ness cream & then she smiles, relieved leaves happily.
Next another girl gets an offer letter for some job. but is worried, & mom gives the fair fairness cream & she is happy, and the narrator says its gonna bring success.

Mr. Owner of the fairness cream company, who in this bloody earth told you that
fair = beauty, success & confidence ?

As a child grows in the society, such visuals are deeply carved in its mind & tends to think the same way. Thus the minds of the whole society is trained to believe that being fair is superior.

IS THERE ANYBODY TO JOIN ME FIGHT THIS MODERN RACISM ?

So I called up this unknown number today who had tried to call me earlier. "Good Morrrrningg Doctor Raahaevoswangyaaa" (that's how he pronounced it), the guy said on the other line. Ok, I know! the 'Doctor' part right? I will explain soon below. My brain quickly figured out two possible callers - either its an old friend or its someone from Vodafone customer service calling me.

I thought it was an old friend first, because the way the guy wished me 'good morning' was the rough equivalent of a class of seventy five 5th standard students wishing the class teacher 'good morning' in the first hour of Monday morning. Except, there was no chorus and just one voice tone which was very close to Akshay Kumar's, in one of his 'decade old' movies with that annoyin…

A Silly 'Flu'sh Back

Day 1:- Swine Flu's fear and fame was at its peak among the people. I was even more worried as the area in which I lived in Bangalore had some reported deaths and a lot of infections. A friend and colleague said I am over reacting and panicking too much. I replied with Tha'lame' fake anguish on my face - "Yeiiii ! Na Thani Aal illa !" (I am not just a single/one person). He replied - "Yes, I heard you eat three people's lunch"

To multiply the horror effect, suddenly many people in office were starting to catch "common cold". So, at times in office, when I am one among 2 or more people, who try to pass through a small space between cubicles, I do "About turn" and take my mobile and start calling Credit card telemarketers to make the move seem natural and escape the situation.

Day 2:- I was sitting at my place heavily concentrating on tasks like pointlessly checking mails continuously and occasionally doing productive work. Then I h…
