So, everyone is talking about Tusshar Kapoor’s picture in the Bombay Times today. This somehow reminds me of two Seinfeld episodes called ‘The Package’ and ‘The Doorman’.
In this episode, George discovers the woman at the photo store is looking at his pictures. He thinks that the photo store clerk has stuck a revealing picture of herself within his pictures, when, in actuality, it was a lingerie model’s picture that accidentally got mixed in. Kramer convinces George to return the “compliment” by sending seductive pictures of George to the photo store woman, and offers to take the photos. He says, “George, it’s the timeless art of seduction. You gotta join in the dance. She sends you an enticing photo, you send her one right back.”
Anyways, looking at Tusshar Kapoor’s chest [Actually Moobs is the right word :-P] it reminds me of another Seinfeld episode called ‘The Doorman’ where Kramer designs a prototype for men with breasts and gifts it to Frank Costanza [George’s Dad]. Kramer and Frank think on going into the bra business with Sid Farkus. Kramer likes to call his invention “the Bro”, although Frank prefers “the Manssiere”.
So, it looks like Tusshar Kapoor can hit an endorsement deal with Kramerica Industries! The question is what should we call it, The BRO or The Manssiere??
Its Obama Vs Mitt Romney in the U.S.A! So, this morning while I was on Twitter I stumbled upon this news link which said ‘Obama’s campaign to spend $780,000 on ‘anti-India ad‘. Now when you read the words ‘anti-India‘ you make sure you read it. And reading becomes almost mandatory when the article involves America in it. It creates a sense of panic as someone is against my country.
Its the presendential election and these things are a vital part of their campaign. Obama is just talking about providing employment to his countrymen. Is he wrong? Now if I was an American I would not like my country to outsource jobs to other countries, think about it, would you? I would not elect a candidate who has caused unemployment in my state for his own personal benefit. Isn’t it pretty normal if you talk about providing employment to your countrymen and blaming the opposition for lack of jobs during their terms? Obama has accused Mitt Romney of outsourcing jobs to countries like Mexico, China and India when he was the Massachusetts Governor. Blame game is a second name of politics, isn’t it? And Americans have been raising the same issue all this while, but has anything substantial happened so far? Have they completely stopped outsourcing jobs? They can’t and they won’t. We all know the reasons very well.
TOI , what was anti-India about this? Isn’t it their right get jobs? And is it solely Anti-India? Sadly, this is what journalism has become. The headline seemed to tell a different story altogether. I have lived in Mumbai for over 24 years and I know when the locals don’t get a job out here, the political parties have made a big fuss out of it. Coming back to the article, this is a country we are talking about and its their bloody RIGHT to get a job in their country. So its fair by all means, isn’t it?
