On 9/12/2001 (day after 9/11) their front page had a semi-nude model. This is how they sell papers



I dont see anything wrong in it. They have it every day.

I don�t think Sameer, or �Indians� has any intention to boast or claim their cleverness over Westerners.



Yes, I agree.


Last time I checked India is still a developing country and the west, developed, in general.



What has this got to do with coding?

You want to earn $300 /hour sitting on Malibu beach and doing coding,right?
You are frustrated with your country and people and making Indians victims of your frustration.

I agree with you.

I can't understand why there is so much hoopla over "Semi-nude models in TOI". TOI is a national newspaper and they can't print anything more than that. If people are upset and want more, well, they better purchase Playboy and stuff.

At Rs. 3/- you can't expect anything more

Can someone file a public interest petition against TOI, for wasting all that paper and causing untimely deaths of infants?(paper -> trees -> deforestation -> draught � failed crops -> poverty -> malnutrition -> high infant mortality, you see the link?)

Ok, I think its about time the Mods did something about "Homer Phillips". He has posted 5 times and all of his 5 posts have been inflammatory. I have a feeling he is actually "Rufus" under a new alias.

Paul,Some people are born rich.They get Pontiac at their 16th birthday .They have 3 girlfriends at 18.Then with the help of dad's and mom's money they get into some top 10 school.So they think people who don't have these qualities are subhumans.When they face competition,they bark.First they attack their own people.When they find ,they are not listening,they bark at people who are thousand miles away.When they too don't listen,they attack culture.These kind of spolied brats are in every country.and Homer Philips's country is also not an exception.

Combined effect tumeric and the other "spices" plus amul butter.


South Indian girls ( from TamilNadu) wont get skin cancer because they apply tumeric mask on their faces. Bala..(ji) no offence please......



When I told the power of tumeric to my co workers they told me to take a Nude camp vacation.

I dont know why?

This is flawed logic , Skin cancer is linked closely to skin color. A darker skin colored person is less likely to get skin cancer because he or she has more pigmentation to protect their skin from damage. Lighter skinned people do not have such pigmentation and hence are more susceptible to skin cancer.

South Indians (men and women) are generally darker in complexion and hence turmeric or no turmeric are less likely to get skin cancer.

Well surely with the turmeric they will be more less likely to get skin cancer

Because my body has the colour and consistency of mozzarella cheese, I tend to use oregano as part of my sun protection regime.
