Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear

If Ramya Krishnan can be the brand ambassador for a “wet grinder”, why can’t a “face” promote products made by the sweat and toil of faceless artisans, commodification of women be damned?

That’s what the actress Roopashree does at an exhibition organised by the Karnataka state handicrafts development corporation, in Bangalore on Monday.

Like, bombers get scared looking at bombshells?

Now, what will those fools do with these kids?

Surely all that glitters is more than just gold

The best ice-candy melts before nice eye-candy

What it takes to smoothen some rough blades of grass

Denims, diamonds, Miss India and the Mahatma

See, a brand ambassador always gets good press
