So, India’s most widely circulated newspaper in English decided to carry a now a-list actress’ ad for hair oil on the day after the country experienced a nation wide shutdown due to the worst petrol hike in years. If the Times didn’t want to talk about that, there was also the worst GDP performance figures in a decade. But this remarkably successful newspaper chose to show us this ridiculously mediocre full page ad instead. The Times is often criticized for being stupid. Their defense has been that they are merely a mirror to society. This is one of those rare instances where everyone is right.
