New Poster Boys & Girls

I see big Ad. posters and there, with some product or a message a model or some movie star or a popular sports personality. All of them have been inducted to the class of poster boys and girls long back. People find a kind of pleasure when they have a glance at them, clean shaved, elegantly dressed, with a good body structure. Even some of the viewers dream to be like them.

Then a new class of people introduced into the group. Though they are not always handsome or beautiful to look at, you cannot ignore them. The earlier group that I have mentioned may not have a greater impact on your life. But because of this new class of people, our lives are highly influenced. At the time of election or some rally or meeting, well we find these posters, hell lot of them, filled with their faces, as compared to that of models. The whole area, road sides flooding with the faces of politician and an ugly mono color background and the logo of their party. We used to decorate school at the time of Independence day or Republic day with colorful papers and Indian Flag. But the way these chamchas of them do, it looks like a total mess. They do not leave a space,, walls of shops, trees, even the electric and telephone poles,, banners. And the welcome posters they range a few kilometers from the venue. When some politicians vouch for cleanliness here, others end up creating political garbage.

In the posters, if you see their poses, they are quite funny and interesting. Doing a Namaste, waving his or hand, a bold face, touching the feet of a old person. A few chamchas holding a huge garland, and the person standing in the middle. And some of them pose distributing grinders, fans. Holy Crap. Some even use these huge black sunglasses. They literally look like a street bully or thief, perfect for the role of a villain in a movie.

There is no grudge against the politicians, if they do right what their responsibility is.  What is the need of creating such an extravagant mess that causes irritation to the eyes? If people are to notice you, they will definitely, not by your face on the poster, by the work you do.
