The fall, the Slip off, tear and the publicity!

The Lakme Fashion Week has been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons (deliberate?) this year.

First the fall of the garment and honour of Carol and then there were people who fell further by selling those clips and photos. Top newspapers had it on the front pages. One paper had three pictures on the front page of what happened in sequence. One so-called 'good' TV news channels showed the same clipping from different angles stating 'ek baar phir dekhiye'.

Its sad how people like to have fun and laugh when a woman's dignity at stake! Very soon there were video clippings and MMS doing the rounds! Wonder if the same would be the case if a man's pant came off on stage!!!

When you come to think of it, there were not one but a series of 3 or 4 malfunctions and all of them on the more famous models! Carol Gracias, Gauhar Khan and Ujwala Raut!
Were they deliberate and for publicity?
Were they planned by the organisers without the consent of the models (a loose Velro on a model when dressing her up hoping she would carry it off if anything went wrong!) or with the consent of the models!

Whatever the reason behind it was, it was too unreal to happen on 3 days within the same fashion week!

And the worst thing was how the perverts cashed in on it!

It was not the fall of a woman's dignity but showed how much people can fall and make money out of someone's problem
