The BIG Fun puzzle pack !

There was a big craze in the 80s  for collecting the Inner Puzzle wrapper of "Big Fun", a popular bubble gum. This Puzzle pack is a nostalgic remnant from my V-std (1984-85)collection. The School interval periods saw intense wrapper exchange trading among my classmates...wonderful memories :)

Yaro oruvan mullaiku Car koduthan...

Obviously, Someone had forgotten where he parked his car....! 

This scene reminded me of a Tamil folklore of the legendary Paari , a 9th century Tamil Chola king.  In Tamil Nadu  a standard exam question for elementary school kids is – “What did Paari do?”, and the reply being “பாரி முல்லைக்கு தேர் கொடுத்தான்” (i.e. “Paari gave his chariot to mullai ”).
The story goes that one day as Paari was going through a forest on his golden chariot, he stopped near a stream to quench his thirst. When he returned he found that a mullai plant (a wild jasmine creeper) had entwined itself around one of the wheels of the chariot. To move the chariot would mean to break the tendril. So Paari  actually gave his golden chariot to the plant to creep and walked back to his palace. He became known for his love for nature and his philanthropy till this day and is known as Paari-vallal.

Hard to digest !

If you have traveled in Indigo airlines, you might be familiar with their "Concept Sandwiches "! They come in nice colorful boxes with a lot of crap written all over....During long boring  flight journeys, when I run out of reading material (ie. usually a News paper), I get desperate to get my hands on something to read...That is the weak moment these boxes are waiting for. You are forced to read what they proudly call "Easy to digest stories"...It's difficult to guess whether their purpose is to amuse or annoy you...The sandwich is usually very good...but once you start reading these stories, you might feel like puking them back into the boxes...If you can read the stories from the photos I have posted , let me know what you think. If you are not able to read, well ...hmmm, you are just plain lucky...

The "creativity" of Indigo doesn't stop with the sandwich boxes....You should see their "super cool" carry bag for sale in their on flight Merchandize. To print the flight safety manual on the carry bags you sell and call it super cool...pure genius!
