WE USED TO BE ‘CITIZENS’. NOW WE ARE ‘CONSUMERS’: In ancient stories (especially in myths, puranas and fairy tales) we read lot about “Asareeri” (divine or celestial voice). Its literal meaning is some sound or human voice without a physical human body.

In modern world, we pooh-pooh them as “nuts”. Hearing voices are considered by psychiatry as an auditory hallucination and as a symptom of conditions such as schizophrenic disorders, manic depression and psychosis.
Now people hear a commercial for Margherita or Stromboli pizza and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. This Asareeri is not psychosis for them.

We know, every decision in the world is now commanded by commercials and media market. What should I wipe myself with? What should I brush with? What should be the colour of my under-wear? These Asareeris will decide for us. All we can do is follow it like zombie.
