Before I begin, I’d like to say something to all of you –
… for the obvious reasons. Many of you have complained that I do not update the blog regularly. It’s been really difficult for me to update the blog during past few days. Let’s cut the crap & continue.
Regular readers know that I do not like the television because 99% of what it shows is crap. Rest 1% is available on Discovery, History & Nat Geo. When I say I do not watch television, I mean I do not watch it even when it is switched off . I did a mistake today.
I turned on the TV all by myself. The TV played following ad:
“Men’s skin is rough & tough. They don’t need women’s fairness cream. Not-so-fair men *should* use the fairness cream that has been specially developed for them (by scientists(?) who wear white apron) . The blackie (?) male model spreads the creme on his face and within next 10 seconds, becomes fair, handsome & lovely. Then all fair women show interest in him (by ‘literally’ running after him)”
I can’t tolerate this anymore. At first, they said “Dark girls don’t get good grooms, so use our fairness creme”. I ignored. Then they said “Dark girls don’t get good jobs, so use our fairness creme”. I laughed. Now they say men need to be fair too! I insist that we all do an experiment – let’s buy 100 fair & lovely/handsome tubes & spread them over a dark buffalo. If it turns into a fair buffalo, I promise to buy 1000 fair & lovely packs & distribute them for free to the needy.
Have you ever used fair & lovely or handsome yourself? If yes and if you have had positive results, please comment on this post. I’d like to meet you in person. Understand that skin’s darkness is decided by a component in skin called ‘melanin’. I don’t think anyone can alter melanin & make a dark guy fair.
Hold on! What did Michael Jackson do? How many fair & handsome packets did he use?
We seriously need to question the veracity of these ads.
Anyway, enough about fairness creme.
Hasta La Vista
