#Keralaisopen: After the storm, Kerala bounces back with a creative twist
For those of you who were looking for a reason to plan a weekend getaway to Kerala, it seems Samsonite has just the ticket. A new creative that has gone viral on YouTube features ordinary men and women in the state, who are significantly dependent on the travel industry, waiting for the tourism business to turn around. Whether it’s a taxi driver returning empty handed after a day’s wait at the airport or a hotelier longingly gazing at his patio waiting for the arrival of tourist footfalls in the peak season, only to be disappointed at the end of the day - the struggles of Kerala have found a voice in this ad. However, with a little help from all of us, it seems God’s own Country can be replenished to its past glory as signified by the tagline Kerala Is Open.
From the cradle to the grave: Tombstone resembling iPhone draws attention in Russia
The tombstone erected over 25-year-old Rita Shameeva’s grave in Ufa, Russia resembles an iPhone. The tombstone was made of basalt and designed in the shape of a black iPhone. Reports said it was installed by the father of the deceased long after her death in January 2016. A Siberian artist named Pavel Kalyuk and his company is said to be behind the unique tombstone. “Kalyuk created the laser engraved monument to ‘attract attention,’ but people quickly requested to commission similar tombstones for their dearly departed,” said reports. The gravestone, made of black basalt, features the iconic Apple logo on the back side, and a picture of Shameeva on the front. The bizarre memorial also features a QR code on the base. While the image has gone viral on Twitter, many users cautioned others from making insensitive jokes about the same, defending the choice of the deceased.
