Let me begin on ways to read articles & ads: “Nothing said in general to be read for specific and nothing said in specific to be read for general. Both cases aren’t wrong!”
Ads with facts in general or in specific talks about “calling” mostly through a known person in an ad. That person calling may not have to do with anyone else or product itself. People resonate with them as economic growth keeps mankind together. This is true as one’s calling romanticise several others. This unrealistic love could take a hit on a good life. If this is to be true then, how should one see any ads? See them as they are! In other words, see them as a craft. Focus must be on learning or doing an activity not driving relationships to the person in the ad. This is highly true for kids! One doctor friend gave an interesting view on things to use on skin (to keep it healthy): Apply those are edible! The doctor did make sense; one that’s good for internal development of the body holds good for external too! Don’t we miss the “calling” of the external body?
There is nothing wrong with setting lofty goals but only on the condition that one maintain a distanced, level-headed relationship with goals. Even one has to argue on a handful of names that falls in the bracket of “calling” & “success”. However, there is a larger pool of miserably failures. One needs to take calling with a pinch of salt because there are people such as terrorists, cheaters, criminals can also claim on their calling.
Does this mean one should avoid the ads? Absolutely no! Ads help us know about a product or service for the community. There are two right outcomes: Learn and practice (with respect to ads of coding) or use and test (with respect to food). One could also avoid the ads. And remember its child who is participating, not you, parent! As much food is to the body, learning is to the mind. See it as one more activity for the development of mind. A development that’s going to gain experiences and skills. As one day, everyone might need to do a job to make bread for the day mostly through an ad.

First time I saw that did not require to touch but some kinds of signals helped to let the water out of the mouth of the tap was an amazing feeling
I see that children build such projects and its wonderful to see and understand the working principle.
While I was young, I couldn’t have asked for more than small things to buy such as ice candy, toffees and sometime a meal (typically dosa). I had understood that its not the matter of existence of money but matter of things to be asked from parents. I realised with growing (older) it was good happened that helped me incharge of opting a thing or declining a thing without much of fuss. At times I had the feeling of not having something, for example, a friend had first cellular phone that was heavy with small screen that displayed name, number and short message. The longer message needed scrolling using up and down button. It did fascinate me but my self-esteem and upbringing didn’t help me to ask parents. Somewhere in deep in my heart I felt its good to be shameless to achieve a good objective by asking out! If I have to classify the activity I’m going to carry out is going to make difference to me and others – being shameless is fine! However, Pride had to play a vital role in being shameless in asking that desired.
In this journey of understanding the word ‘shameless’, I came across the line, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”(Matthew 7:7) God tells that one who ask is not denied and pride is the evil game! I have played this game of asking in the prayer but denied myself of outside showcasing pride. This conflict of understanding and thought has often took away that God granted. After several repercussions, I have decided to be Shameless in asking because I know it will bring happiness, joy and make the world a better place to live though my action.
