The Sad, Agonizing Tale of Bhuvan Ganguly

I Was browsing through the Advertisement Blogs – Ad Jab and Ad Rag, when suddenly a familiar face came up …an Indian face in an American Ad.. And guess what the product is for? Nintendo Video Games!

The Latest Commercial from Nintendo is called “The Sad, Agonizing Tale of Bhuvan Ganguly” and has been created by Leo Burnett, Chicago.
According to the reports in Sun Times and IGN.com, the 60-second commercial has been aired exclusively in more than 5,000 theaters in the US starting July 29th through August 25th and could make its way on to television at a later date.

A sad worker, Bhuvan Ganguly, pulls his cart in a dry desert on a bright sunny day. During the course of his tiring journey, he takes a break and sits next to his cart, pulling out a small shoddy packet from it.
From the packet, he takes out a single banana, peels it off, and eats it up, busy in his own morose thoughts. When he is finished, out of a natural instinct, he throws away the skin on the ground.
Suddenly, as the peel hits the ground, the spot shifts to a city roadway and a car jerks and skids out of control. Spot back to the original scene, and the peel is spinning similarly to the car. A spot shift again and the Ad ends with Ganguly gazing at the banana, wondering if there was more to it, that happened.

Tagline “Every Action in world gives rise to an equal and opposite reaction!”.
For the first timers, it would be simply an innovative idea, but for the Nintendo fans, the Ad alludes to the popular Nintendo MarioKart game, in which players use banana peels to wreak havoc on their rivals' automobiles.

Nevertheless, it is good entertainment, and smart thinking with of course, intelligent editing!

Many of our modern drugs have harsh side-affects and cost the “earth”, so the next time you come down with a cold or the flu or teenage stress, why not try a gentle alternative that costs next to nothing?

Instead of immediately forking over large amounts of money for over-the-counter drugs, go to the kitchen cupboard and see what you can find to relieve your symptoms including teenage stress.

Here are some helpful hints for teenage stress …

A simple hot compress applied to the face is very soothing to those throbbing aches and pains of a blocked sinus, while a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief can provide welcome relief for similar conditions. While supplements of vitamin C, D and zinc will shorten the lifespan of a common cold, a hot lemon drink is also extremely good. And be sure to cuddle-up in bed when you have a cold, as it will make the body sweat out the germs.

Cool lemon juice and honey are a great soother for a sore throat and gives the body much-needed vitamin C at the same time The juice of one lemon in a glass of water is sufficient. Melt the honey in a little hot water for ease of mixing.

A smear of Vaseline or petroleum jelly will do wonders for those sore lips and nose that often accompany a cold.

A 'streaming cold' where the nose and eyes water profusely, can respond to drinking onion water. Simply dip a slice of onion into a glass of hot water for two seconds, then sip the cooled water throughout the day. Half an onion on the bedside table also alleviates cold symptoms because its odor is inhaled while you sleep.

People prone to catarrh may find that chewing the buds from a pine or larch throughout the day will clear up their condition in just a few days.

Do you suffer from sore eyes? If your eyes are sore from lengthy exposure to the sun, try beating the white of an egg and then spread it over a cloth and bandage the eyes with it. Leave the preparation on overnight. Soft cheese (quark) is also a good remedy for this condition.

For those unpleasant times when you suffer from diarrhea, two tablespoons of brown vinegar will usually fix the problem. Vinegar can be rather horrible to take, but who cares! The problem is more horrible. Vinegar can usually be found in most people's cupboards, so you don't need to worry about finding someone to run to the shop for you in an emergency.

Sleepless? Instead of reaching for sleeping pills, which can quickly become addictive, try this: Drink only caffeine free tea or coffee starting late in the afternoon.. Go to bed earlier rather than later, as being overtired tends to keep people awake. Make sure the bedroom is dark and quiet. Use only pure wool or cotton sheets and blankets. Polyester materials can cause sweat and make you thirsty (if your child constantly asks for water throughout the night, this could be the reason).

And don't watch those scary movies just before retiring! If you still can't sleep, make a tea of lemongrass or drink a nightcap of herbal tea containing chamomile. It's easy to grow lemongrass in your garden or start a flower pot on the balcony for ease of picking. Simply steep a handful in boiling water for five minutes. Honey may be added for a sweetener.

Of course there will be times when you do need modern drugs, so if these simple remedies don't have the required affect, be sure to see a health care professional.
