A catalog of Indian style and design

The problem with this is that it assumes that all Indians are the same. This is like having a catalog of European style.


Seems like a problem indeed. Another, perhaps related one is that “European style” would make perfect sense to a lot of U.S. Americans. :-/


Probably just a coincidence, but are ads actually looking at pictures these days, and not just copy? If so, it’s kind of creepy.


Such moments are only creepy for me when I temporarily forget that bb is a thoroughly commercial enterprise.


Fair enough!
