Advertisements are something that you watch every day. If you are stuck to a particular channel for three long hours continuously, I am sure eighty minutes of the 180 minutes  you watch consists of advertisements. Sometimes if you are in a lazy mood and you don’t want to switch to another channels, you have to keep on watching the advertisements. One day when I was home alone, I planned to watch a movie. But our remote was not working properly. With great effort, I reached to Set Max and luckily my favourite movie was coming. The movie had just started. About twenty minutes into the movie, there came the time for advertisements. I did not even have the option to mute so I quietly watched whatever was aired on the channel. Some advertisements were so irritating and some were so funny. Many advertisements led me towards a deep thought too. One of the ad showed that a couple was sitting in a restaurant and the girl was selected for selected for something as she had to go to foreign. She was scared to share this with her partner. She had applied one of the leading Talc powder and Oh! What a surprise the boyfriend happily agreed by the smell of that powder. I was wondering if powders would do such magic, then why people should plead in front of their parents or anyone. Before demanding anything from husband the wife must apply Talc powder and same the child must do before going in front of their parents. Another one I remember is that of luxurious Ice cream.


As the lady started eating the ice cream she was given special treatment. The whole crowd rushed towards her. She was like some queen of the palace. This ad made me think if only an ice cream could do so much then why do people work so hard to earn. Just buy that branded Ice cream and the world is behind you. Another funny one I remember is hair non-sticky Oil in which the famous lady played the lead role.

A fat girl first laughs on her and as she applies the oil surprisingly there is no hair fall. If in reality just by applying once that oil breakage of hair would stop then why do people buy some other brand.

Last but not the least, I remember of that mosquito repellent. Both little brother and sister is sitting in the room and the boy is explaining the girl about the the modes in that. The girl at last funnily asks ” Agar haathi machar ho toh. ” to which the boy irritatingly replied ” Tera Saar. ” The girl giggled and replied ” Mera saar nahi , Push karo Khush karo. “Seeing this I was wondering these small mosquitoes doesn’t listen to mosqitoes repllent and if by chance when elephant sized mosquito comes then that would eat us wholly. Isn’t it? There were more ads some were really ridiculous. Another Hair oil was one of them. I felt that when a person is surrounded with so many files and works whatever he applies the tension would be same. Then how a branded oil can reduce the tension and tension goes away quickly. Another one is of a vital drink.

I agree, by drinking drinks once height can increase but suddenly that next day children are surprised to see their classmate height and questions him Aakhir khata kya hai ? And the child proudly say Khata nahi peeta hun and he names that drink.

Watching that harping challenge add made me think that in India there is no other challenge as big and as important than that. Isn’t it??
