ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Minister distributes kits to Healthcare Workers, Home Guards and Newspaper Distributors”

  1. What a culture! says:

    This ridiculous scene of someone,whether it is a minister giving away kits or Raghulal pharmacists donating sanitisers is shown in a photograph of the person giving it and the person receiving it receiving it with a few people surrounding that person.You do not see this silly photograph anywhere in the world:in third world countries or first world countries.
    Again, when parents go and get the hall tickets for the SSLC exams,why brandish it in a photograph?
    Is the above,some kind of cultural aberration peculiar to the third world India? Very amusing indeed, in these days of Corona virus,when even masked people are advised not to congregate together.
