Why Sanju’s better dead
May 18, 2008
The Max New York Life advert. Sanju leaves his shoes and socks on the floor in one room, his newspapers in another, his prescription medicines scattered on the counter, his laptop in yet another room (how many rooms does Sanju have?), and his wife finally finds him sprawled on a chair in their balcony, with his tea cup overturned and spilt. The wife’s thinking Sanju struggled from room to room before he died in the balcony. But we know Sanju’s not dead. He’s just being a pig. You feel sorry for her. She’s probably cleaning up after him everyday. So you wonder: Would life without Sanju be bad? And given how many rooms she has, is the life insurance necessary?
