While many Hindus are celebrating the victory of light over darkness today, the dark force will soon be gaining ground by end of the week.
The hands of merchants are reaching towards the pockets of the consumers.
Consumers are screaming at the “festive consumerism” forced down by modern marketing.
Children (especially teenagers) are thrilled with the notion of mess-up make-ups. Parents are the ones who have to vomit (hopefully not blood) to spend more.
The smarter consumers will find creative ways to maximize happiness with their investment. Take few pictures and walked away like zombies.
But the dark forces of consumerism is like a giant net covering you from all angles …
Even at the end of life, there are still merchandizes like turning your hair into diamond sourvenir, or preserve your body for next miracle cure.
Ignore what I said, just have fun today, this weekend, and next holiday is round the corner – “Hari Raya Haji”.
