Stress and soap dr. shriniwas kashalikarDocument Transcript
Apparently; stress has nothing to do with SOAP!
But if we take a closer look at it; then we would realize
that it does have.
SOAP is a commodity, on the promotion and marketing
of which, non productive and extremely wasteful
squandering of money goes on perennially on the TV and
other media. This squandering on commercials or
advertisements of various SOAPS; is not merely useless
but in fact is a major STRESSOR. These advertisements
on TV and print media are irritatingly repetitive and
deceptive. They create an entirely and ridiculously false
picture of the results of various brands of SOAP. This
makes the SOAP advertisements frightening (by
repeated threat of infections) and STRESSFUL (because;
irrespective of the SOAP; various skin and other health
problems; claimed to vanish; continue). Often new
problems are created by the use of soaps due to allergies
and/or washing away of the naturally protective sweat
Many a times we use SOAP only to show that we are
“modern, progressive and advanced”!
Knowingly or unknowingly; many of us (the Indians);
harbor the superstition that anything European,
German, British, Japanese etc is superior to anything
Indian! We have been chronically infected with the
lowly feeling of being primitive, unscientific; and
Do we have the capacity to see through and overcome
every possible kind of misleading hype and exploitative
brain washing on media? If we blossom from within and
empower ourselves (through NAMASMARAN); and see,
think, feel and act holistically; then we can certainly
conquer the STRESS of being the victims of such deceits
(as well as of being culprits of spreading such deceit)!
Let us understand firmly and finally; that the use of
SOAP per se, is unnecessary and harmful (barring
exceptional circumstances). Let us take bath twice a day
in a prayerful and thankful attitude with self esteem and
we won’t ever get undue skin problems!
