Horlicks.....

I rarely tune in to T.V channels... This particular day when I was in one of those 'feel-like-doing-nothing' moods, I chose to switch-on the T.V.

Four kids were praying in a temple, each asking for different things... One kid interestingly thought out aloud "Dear God, I know you are the Almighty and have great strength... then, may be you do not need this much of milk for yourself " and rushes out of the temple with the can of milk that was kept in front of the deity as an offering...

The scene ends with the kids making Horlicks Shake and enjoying themselves.. :)

This advertisement has a major thought which is controversial to even discuss here.. There is this practice of 'Abhishekha' in Indian temples where people offer 'milk' to God. It is a mark of devotion to the good God for all that he has given and been and ' is-to-be' to people.

Wonder why no one ever thought of this basic question.. God is the Almighty and so he may not need so much milk after all??

The point is 'Some questions that kids ask, do not have correct answers. All answers given are to manage the show for the moment.'...

Curious to know what God thinks of the Horlicks Advt, at this moment as I write this post... :)

i bet if he exists then he would be been thinking the same as he is thinking now when i am writing this... which is same as what he always thinks when somebody guns down 32 people... or when 150 innocent people die for no reason.. or when thousands of children starve to death in africa when he's bathing in milk....
