One of the chief obstacles to intelligence is credulity, and credulity could be enormously diminished by instructions as to the prevalent forms of mendacity. Credulity is a greater evil in the present day than it ever was before, because, owing to the growth of education, it is much easier than it used to be to spread misinformation, and, owing to democracy, the spread of misinformation is more important than in former times to the holders of power.

One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
