I'll love you baby- No matter if your BLACK or WHITE



A bit over the top ? Overreaction ? Yes ? No ? Maybe ?
My Answer ?

No. A big fat NO.

Well for those of you who don't know what happened, here's a gist. Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee visited the Colors Comedy Night Bachao Taaza set to shoot a roast sequence.



 A ROAST is basically an event where an individual is subjected to "good natured" (remember this) jokes at their expense intended to amuse the event's wider audience - in short, us.

 However this was one such event in which I think they kind of forgot the "good natured " part and substituted it with something else which they thought would work out, but as we can see, didn't. Bad Assumption.

Now. what that "something else" was the anchors saying something about her dark skin(which would put anyone off), I doubt anyone will get to see it. The very first reason being that Miss. Chatterjee told the organizers to cut her part. Fair enough. However, one thing that we do know is that her walking out of the sets was the right thing to do.Action speaks louder than words, you see.

Want to know what triggered off this reaction ?
The actress was described as "Kaali Kalooti" and was asked if she was eating jamun since childhood as a result of which "mooh kala hai". Seriously ? Whats happened to Indian Comedy ? Bure din aa gaye. I didn't even give a half smile at that "joke".

Within a few hours, Colors channel did issue an apology. But the damage is done.
Here are some excerpts from the actress's Facebook post :

I couldn't have put it better than her, so i'm not going to write anything more. Don't let anything wrong happen with you. Even Instagram and Facebook have Report options. This is our country.  Just because you have been given the freedom to make fun of someone, it does not mean you transform comedy into cheap comedy. It's good to spread happiness, make someone laugh. But you know what, we all have brains, we all have common sense. Lets use it and do stuff the right way.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
