'Shopping Mall Therapy' works!





TAG: Verses, Reverses


'Shopping Mall Therapy' works!
Binging on McD's - CHICKEN INSIDE, 
Browsing books and mags in book BARS! 
MAGAZING at Vidya Balan in some hot attire...
Green shiny blouse, lovely white saree. Heartthrob!
Gaping wide eyed at Apple showroom goodies, 
SO MANY movies and movie tickets... 
Guzaarish - Aish looks cool, smoking hot!
And then there's a LOT :D 
And I remember once 
We had done 'observation studies' 
At a nearby mall,
Part of some design project:
People checking out stuff, 
Shopping, Window shopping, yakking...
Queues, Queue lengths, Consumer behaviour!!
Glazed looks, hyper kids. 
New age thrill. Shiny lights.
Couples walking around like zombies, 
Airtel promoting its new logo with RED colored contests ... 
Had fun, have fun! Go again.
It's the sensory experience stupid! 
And the glassy plastic, metallic energy! 
That's why 
'Shopping Mall Therapy' works!

Reliance: Anil Ambani group got undue benefits: CAG report

Nothing new about Reliance - I just wonder when big money and financial gobbledygook (err policy) is involved anything is possible/things just go haywire - remember sub-prime crisis? Mr Anil looks so thoughtful in this pic! Where's the money - honey? CORPORATE INDIA under the scanner now!! Still utilizing pre-liberalization core competencies and institutional voids?

The report of the Comptroller and Auditor-General of India on the 2G spectrum allocation indicates that it was the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG) that benefited the most from the arbitrary and unfair manner in which licences were given in 2008.

Some thoughts...

Every human being is like some stage of a budding lotus! May they bloom and blossom into their full blown potential! May nothing hinder them...

A series of tough hurdles, masquerading as failures and even near destructive events are thrown at you in life - you got to survive them all with equanimity! And then you are there. An unforgettable day today!!
