Virus Of Consumerism - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak
Oh this virus, consumerism,
King there is, nor rule, only kingdom.
And there's all-grabbing greed,
People buy beyond need,
With all intellect, there's no wisdom.
Diwali festivals are over and markets are in the grip of Christmas fever. Malls mull over two big shopping days in rich countries: Black Friday of so-called killing discounts and Cyber Monday ofsales mania. Pope Francis has condemned ‘the virus of consumerism' because it forgets ‘the brother who knocks at your door'.
