  2. Mickey Mehta:

    Today life is going through unstable paces, animals slaved in cages and food exhibited in show-cases. We eat thrash, our language is brash, life is a dash and humanity is about to crash. Black is cash, party is a bash and cleansing is just a splash. Wake up, come back to nature or else a human being will just be reduced to a caricature . Let your life be naturalized, get MickeyMized.
