Ghajini tattoos seem to be the latest fad. Here’s how to use them your own way, writes Damini Purkayastha.india Updated: Jan 19, 2009 18:14 IST
A real estate advertisement shows Aamir Khan’s torso with details of flats (2/3 bedroom), contact numbers and special features tattooed on it. A dairy brand advertises with the same torso bearing a tattoo that reminds viewer to eat that particular butter. An ad for a travel website depicts a man walking into hotels and out of them, with tattoos reminding him of his review of those.
Needless to say, Ghajini is the latest fad that everyone is capitalising on. For those who suffer from any form of memory loss (even the selective variety) this is the fool-proof method of ensuring no excuses. We bring you some ideas on how to use the Ghajini-tools for your benefit.
Wives: Take a permanent marker (tattoos are painful) and write your birthday and anniversary on his chest, if he looks at it every morning and still forgets… every court will grant you divorce; 1 pm: call wife at 999999999, etched on the upper side of his palm. Saturdays grocery on his shoulders and ‘my wife is the best’ on his toes.
Husbands: Reverse the above and add, ‘ours is an open marriage, you are okay with it’ somewhere.
Employees/Teachers: If you somehow manage to get your boss in a position where you can etch on his/her body, you should waste no time. ‘So and so is my favourite employee, give him bonus and a raise today’, ‘I have a heart condition and must not lose my temper’, ‘Everyone leaves work at 4 and it is okay if they come in at 12’, ‘Targets are not as important as my employees’.
Unfriendly neighbouring country’s President: Etch, ‘India is our best friend’, ‘I love Madhuri Dixit’, ‘We hate fundamentalists’, ‘We sponsor terrorism’!
