Without words, language doesn’t exist.
Without clothes, life doesn’t too.
But do they have to be branded?
Unfortunately, I am thinking wrong; in the real world, in various places, it does. We commonly see people roaming on roads barefoot, naked in search of ‘Roti,’ ‘Kapda,’ and ‘Makaan.’ Keeping in mind the pictures of these people, how can one forget that clothes are an essential part of everyone’s life?
A friend of mine once expressed his wish of buying ‘Branded’ clothes to me, to which I asked him to explain to me the reason for desiring that.
“Branded clothes increase your standing in society” – He answered.
That was disgusting to me as I don’t believe in the philosophy of becoming more standardized just because of the ‘TAG” of extravagance.
His answer added thought to my consciousness, which, to some extent, altered my perception of looking at people, and I later dived into profound astonishment when I discovered that “Yes,” it’s a fact that “NAME” matters.
Are Branded Clothes All that Important?
Even if it is not beautiful, a brand makes you look adorable. In my opinion, it is like putting a face mask on the face. Your clothes construct your image in the mind of others.
And, of course, the better the Brand is, the better you influence people. They first ask for the Brand as if that is the ground to judge a person’s character. It’d be perfect if we started to love people and not their objects.
We all know that the world is full of competitions, whether in academics, careers, etc. I feel that the Brand is introducing another competition of being branded in one way or the other.
Folks leave no stone unturned to grab the best Brand. Undoubtedly, teenagers and college students are easily attracted by the alluring advertisements and the exaggerated and renowned popularity these brands have earned. Boys and girls wish to show themselves superior to each other in many ways. Clothing is one of those.
Being in the world like everyone, I am also surrounded “by ” “AGS” or say, human bodies were having a big brand name pasted on them from toe to head. A person can also be multi-branded. For instance, when a person fits into different outfits of different brands, there is no doubt that that makes them feel at the top of the world.
At some points, I feel that this makes some people marginalized. People who cannot afford the shirt of 2000 but can’t stand among people who belong to ‘the Branded’ class. For some people, those who don’t wear branded clothes are not members of society.
I remember an incident in which I once noticed that one boy was sitting on the first bench; he was wearing a white color T-shirt, and on his T-shirt “Honey “Boy” along with his local brand name was printed. A girl wearing branded outfit was sitting on a bench after him. The girl pointed to her friend what was written on his T-shirt and began to laugh.
Is this civilization or literacy? – I thought.
When clothing Brands come to my mind, I think of those who can’t keep themselves away from being stripped don’t say to boycott Brands but stop showing off and judging other people for their clothes.
It’s fine when someone wears branded and expensive clothes, but their perspective regarding unbranded clothes needs to change. A person in local clothes should be considered equal to the one living life in luxury.
Think once before you show
Yourself to be superior.
Does your heart glow
By making others inferior?
