Well this video has nothing to do with all things "Desi" but we needed to post Nicolas Deveaux's video, "5 Métres 80" which was produced at Cube Creative Productions. The lifelike animation of approximately one dozen Giraffes taking over an empty diving facility and displaying Olympic caliber diving, will keep you glued to your screen. Enjoy!
As a "brown" person walking down a busy city street it can be startling to witness white folks with a mark on their forehead. I use the term "white" folks in lieu of Caucasians because technically, some "brown" folks are Caucasian (look it up). Let me digress...Brown folks are the bearer of marks on their forehead, not white people!
I stumbled upon the image above, "A Catholic Guide to Ashes" which is credited to @BillDonaghy via Twitter. Take a look at the bottom row, second from the right. Yup, "The Hindu"! Wait a second, you can't steal the Bindi and make it Catholic, that's just not copacetic. I want Ash Wednesday to be completely Catholic, with no relation to being a Hindu. I need Ash Wednesday's as an example for every time some ignorant person inquires about the "Dot" (aka Bindi) and it's significance.
We'll let our audience be the judge on this subject.
Check this "Fever" video out by Jai Vaswani a.k.a "Nanok" the Mumbai Electronica DJ/Producer. The beats are infectious as well as the humble "Bombayite's" acting by Varun Thakur" Somehow the two work seamlessly together and provide a bit of Mumbai reality, far from a mainstream video of a privileged, dolled out, liquored up crowd in a swanky club. We have been following Nanok's work on SoundCloud and this guy will put some flavor in your ears.
Looks like social media marketing is taking over the 27 feet x 4 feet of cloth, otherwise know as the Sari. Why anyone would want to openly display their love for Facebook and Whatsap on a Sari, which by the way dates back the Indus Valley Civilization (2800–1800 BC), makes us scratch our heads. Perhaps it's a ploy to segue ones compliment on the Sari to show off one's new smart phone? People in India love their phones and often make sure to show them off, especially if the case is encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Call it "bling" if you wish but it is more of a status symbol. Another thought, is perhaps these ladies are tired of being asked if they use social media platforms. "Really?, can't you see my Sari?"
Something tells us that Facebook did not authorize the use of their logo on this Sari especially given the color. We bet that the manufacturer will probably laugh off the cease and desist order once Facebook finds them.
Well this manufacturer gets an "A" for effort on staying true to Whatsap's colors.
Oh my! She certainly knows her social media, no messing with her!
We will continue to search for the enterprising aunty who is solely rocking a LinkedIn Sari, stay tuned.
