Little Ironies

With a pamphlet in his hand, Moin looked contented. A sales agent of his cell phone service provider gave him that. In the pamphlet, there was plan for Rs. 2500 with which one could make unlimited calls to anywhere in India. That was what made him so happy. Because, with that he could make as many number of calls he want and talk his heart out to his friends and relatives.

Few days back, he had sent me a forward. There was a cartoon of a person with a cell phone in his ear and fumes coming out from his head in the forward. And a tagline that read, “Excessive use of cell phones may cook your brains alive”.

Why would the cell phone service provider be bothered about all those?
