O God, give me the strength to switch off my mobile phone,

not check facebook every hour and ignore the stream of whatsap messages,

be able to stop after one potato chips packet and one episode on netflix,

not get drawn into over dramatized news items and fake reality shows …. 🙂


The government in India cares about the people more than in any other countries. It wants to make sure the people dont get into bad habits. They have thought of a fool proof way of ensuring it.

Since movies are the only way people can get ‘spoilt’, they have made these statutary warnings mandatory. At the beginning of the movie they tell you alcohol consumption and smoking are injurious to health. Any scene that shows an actor drinking or smoking needs to have the warning written  at the bottom.

Whoa! What a brilliant idea! Now that we have ensured people wont drink or smoke anymore, I have a pestering doubt in my mind. Why dont we have any statutory warnings for scenes showing murders, violence and illegal activities ?
