I Choose Beautiful but Do Dove

The idea behind advertisement is to bring the focus of the customers to some product or service. In any country or the world with advancing generations at altered ideologies each day, it is becoming rampant among the major houses/brands to use viral marketing. The side effects of any viral marketing campaign is that they take the users for guaranteed while never admitting they are playing hide and seek with their favorite reformed choices. No, not today when the blind, the acid attack victim, the molested, the underage, the woman who has been denied justice stand on the same platform.

It is a fact that any person (only few exceptions) do not retain their stereotypical attitude out of compulsion, illiteracy or a stigma. People do evolve with times and once they break the barriers in order to be pleasant, to be familiar and friendly with others in the society. Any malignant notion is not respected which in general can cause discomfort to masses.

So, why a beauty or toiletry product uses the door concept "of letting in new thoughts or supporting the innate belief" rather than putting the best incidents of womanhood as an example. There are many instances during a woman's life that brings us to mute acceptance about the concept of their beauty. I am not against this skepticism but do major brands are able to maintain a separate and unique identity when it comes to their products.

Is Dove asking a general choice of appearance, I do not want to admit. I personally do not use their products but I know the quality and consider a thumbs up from me. It is conflicting in the brand imaging to test the core feminine issues. What I think, you think, sometimes remain irrelevant. The situations are not about always being on the positive side and taking a stand is often masked by other abilities which the society acknowledges in common goodwill. I feel it is not fair to trade with higher concepts/complex situations. It is necessary for any woman to gradually become conscious of her beauty, both internal and external and be able to take decision too and able to express them through their choices. As I said before, there are ways.

To take the role of social reformer, a commentator or being a strategist does no good, believe me. Numerous organizations are burning both ends of the candle to work towards their individual goals and they are hardly distinguished while their tasks priority is insurmountable. It is important that the companies like Dove should refrain to act as Universal Feminist, but stick better guns to the real agenda behind their products.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
