The humble underwear, once categorised as ‘the unmentionables’ is in the news in a big way.
First it was the Oxford English dictionary which included ‘chuddies’ as an English word.
Then came Azam Khan, who used the underwear jibe against his female opponent, Jaya Prada.
Now with the discussion on the economy getting the media space it deserves, the ‘Alan Greenspan Underwear index’ hit the headlines. According to Greenspan the sale of Men’s Underwear gives a fair indication of the state of the economy.
The Economic Times reported that the sale of inner wear fell sharply in India in the previous quarter indicating a slump in the economy.
Does the slump in underwear sales reveal so much about the economy and increase in sales cover up something? (pun intended)
Anyway, men of India, gird up your loins to pull up the economy. Go out and by your underwears.
Mr Kailasam likes to dress up as the late Chief Minister MG Ramachandran. He was conspicuous at the Heritage Motor Show at the Ramachandra Convention Centre Thiruvanmiyur. He was keen to be photographed with the cars and the visitors. Here he is in front of 1948 Vauxhall.
