There is an archaic rule that pharma companies can't advertise their products, nor can baby product companies. Brands also can't have doctors endorsing them, offering the consumers potential medical reasons/benefits.
This is archaic, IMHO and accordingly what I see is a smart move by the brands - they hire foreign doctors, and shoot the TVCs in their clinics and present to Indian consumers.
Another archaic rule currently in vogue is the media-gag - ruled famously by the ecosystem's favorite poster boy Chandrachud and poster ungle Joseph. This Gopakumar has picked a leaf from their book and is using the same.
It sets expectations high. It tells, subtly or otherwise, that all systems are there to be broken, including subjectivity. In a deeper sense, it makes life a complete binary (in the expectation of the people who are brought up with such objectivity in subjective situations)
Unfortunately, in doing so, it doesn't prepare those students for real life. Having been brought up in binary situations, they approach life in a black-or-white, one-or-zero mentality.
As you can expect, it hits them with a 100-ton force!
In late Dec-1971, when communal violence targetting Muslims reached Thalasseri, Kerala, a prominent young CPI-M leader Vijayan Koran & MV Raghavan had been given charge by CPI-M of protecting mosques ...
allegedly targeted by the RSS. Their goal was to make the Muslims believe that the communists were the saviors of Muslims. Vijayan Koran and his comrades travelled in the riot-hit regions with microphones and requested people to maintain harmony.
They appealed the people not to fall into the communal propaganda while some research shows was unleashed by themselves.
They stood guard at mosques which the mobs had targeted for destruction, and one of them, UK Kunjiraman, lost his life in that defence on January 4, 1972.
A very favorite subject of mine is this - how Big Pharma and Big Food companies have cheated consumers using sugars, while Big Researchers have lived a life of being paid off by the Big Brother Companies.
She said “I want to talk to your Manager”, But the youngster denied by the time the Manager started pinging the youngster and the youngster unmuted to talk and his grandmother shouted “Manager I want to talk to you"
1 Tam-Brahm = priest at the Vardarajaperumal temple.
2 Tam-Brahms = Maths tuition class.
3 Tam-Brahms = Queue outside the U.S consulate at 4 a.m.
4 Tam-Brahms = Thyagaraja music festival in Santa Clara
6. Brahmins were so oppressive that they kept on chanting mantras. Hearing their mantras, the Samurais took out their katanas, & beheaded THEMSELVES
7. Brahmins kept on conducting homams everywhere they went; hence Abraham migrated from Ur of the Chaldeans all the way to Israel.
8. Brahmins propitiated the Gods so much that they decided to carve a perfect black cube and present them. But one group of Brahmins got so angry that they cursed the Black Cube as it descended towards India. The curse took the Black Cube to you-know-where!
Paternal Grandfather had uncertain income due to drama actor role. Often would disappear from home, seeking employment. When he was back, was instrumental in creating the village we are blessed with today (in the number of relatives / cousins, not the land)
Maternal Grandfather, despite being the eldest and most docile, died early, leaving mom, periyamma and chithi + mama at the mercy of their uncles. Got lands appropriated (within the relatives and outside, due to contract farming (by you-know-who))
Mom, considered the smartest in her family (including cousins), couldn't study beyond 5th standard, due to economic conditions.
Mama went on to study his degree and became a teacher ... Chithi studied her graduation and joined the Excise Dept!
Annadurai, Karunanidhi, MGR and Jayalalitha - with their own refined brand of free-bie politics made sure that TN stayed regressed. None of the promised social reforms happened. Power "allegedly" transferred & dominant caste names changed.
Their bogeyman, the Tam-Brahm, was hounded, humiliated, guillotined and excommunicated. The Tam-Brahms in TN are a pale shadow of their chequered past and importantly, the younger generation is either deracinated (coopted under social pressure) or successful emigrants elsewhere.
Never given to violence, but victims of violence themselves, they left their ageing parents and not-so-eligible brethren back in TN, while the capable ones moved on.
The muscular castes were squabbling among themselves, driven by the greed of money, power and honor.
... for the day of reckoning is near (not that Jeebus returning day, that won't happen, but this is something about our own day of meeting the Maker)
Here is a story for you to consider repenting:
A sage was once sitting in front of his home weaving a basket. He heard someone calling out ‘Ram Ram’ and walking along the road but could not see him. He asked his sister who was calling out the name of God.
Who says India had castes?
Europeans and Marxist historians
Are they truthful?
Alternative reading does leave us a room of doubt about their claims to & assertion about veracity
Why do you say that?
The Europeans, who didn't know Earth was round or Earth is billions of years old or the number ZERO & calculus existed, should need a credibility to make a claim about Indian history
How about Marxists?
They are falsifiers of history - don't we know that?
The historical invasions, as if, at the drop of a hat, it was a holy duty for the Moonie Marauders, whether from Arabia, Persia, Turkey or CA-stans, were all motivated by the evil exhortations in a vile book propagated by the schizophrenic pedophilic broken-tooth bandit
Never satiated, never replused completely due to random interpretations of scriptures (Dharmic treatment to such Mlechhas, for starters), never uprooted forever ... they kept coming back even after getting royally beaten back.
