Don't Scare Me Please

Halloween is over and I am amazed to see how much traditions and global brands are penetrating into sub-cultures.  Television serials in India are having episodes specially catering to Indo-American Culture who are familiar with the scary stuff.  

Am I scared due to Halloween?  No.  But the way corporates are promoting a tradition more than it is supposed to be, it is actually scary.

The reason they do it is simple, it results into more sales of their scary products(Sugary products, Halloween costumes and fast food.)

Tomorrow it is not wonder they will pick up another tradition and magnify it.  Because existing ones will max out.
