New Delhi: The demeaning of Indian symbols continues unabated. In the name of creativity it seems Indians are being humiliated and demeaned. As if Indian tricolour doormat and Mahatma Gandhi on sleepers was not enough, now sleepers with Lord Shiva have surfaced.
Insanity in the name of creativity is at its peak. Now, American online retailer CafePress has triggered yet another outrage with Shiva sleepers and Gandhi sleepers with Mahatma holding a machine gun. These outrageous products are available on the official site of CafePress. In fact, the Gandhi sleepers sold on Amazon are designed by CafePress.
The Shiva slippers are being sold as Harmony Flip Flops priced at $16.99. They are described as, “Our graphic flip flop sandal designs are professionally printed. Your unique design will make everyone smile with funny, cute, vintage, or expressive artwork”
The Gandhi sleepers are referred to as ‘Cute Gandhi Flip Flops’. The slippers showing Mahatma Gandhi holding a machine gun is called ‘Funny Gandhi Flip Flops’.
The other Gandhi sleepers go under the names- ‘I Love Gandhi Flip Flops’, ‘Gandhi on a Unicorn Flip Flops’, ‘Mohandas Karamchand Mahatma Gandhi Engl Flip Flops’, ‘gandhisexybig Flip Flops’, etc.
It is time to act, is the message that all Indians have for the government.
