Flavour of Modern Christmas

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Front Page

 

Left – The rotary at Khyndailad (Police Bazaar) illuminated in a conical shape to indicate a pine tree for Christmas celebration; Right – a person posing as Santa Claus standing outside a wine store in Laitumkhrah, waiting for his turn while also waving and wishing passersby. Such is the flavor of Christmas in this new age modernity. On one hand government spends lavishly in decorations when hundreds go hungry everyday and projects stuck in a limbo due to fund constraints, while on the other hand people unashamedly queue in line to grab bottle(s) of wine while donning the attire of the legendary wise, loved and messenger of peace, Santa Claus.
