I'm a Goan woman, working in Mumbai as the founder of a studio called Totem Creative. I try to make the world happier, safer and more meaningful. I believe education, knowledge and awareness, art, writing and creating Social Impact are my means to achieve that end.

A Sri lankan is calmly having his breakfast when an American,typically chewing gum, sits down beside him. The Sri lankan ignores the American who begins to chat:

The American: Do you eat that bread-entirely?

The Sri lankan: Of course!

The American: We do not. We only eat the soft centre of the bread, the crust is put in a container, later processed, transformed into flour and then sold to Sri lanka .

The Sri lankan makes no comment.

The American continues: Do you eat this Jam with the bread?

The Sri lankan repeats: Of course.

The American: We do not eat Jam . We eat fresh fruit for breakfast, we keep all the peels and seeds in a containers. Later we process it, and transform it into Jam and then we sell it to Sri lanka .

The Sri lankan asks : So, as a matter of interest what do you do with condoms after you use them?

American : We throw them away, of course!

Sri lankan: We do not. We keep them in containers, process them,transform them into chewing gum and then sell it to the United States .
