Yes, Prime Minister?

Hey if Barack can have his own dress, by way of print of course, why should Mr. Singh be left behind. Not that either dignitaries pow-pow’ed with the designers but they would be rather flattered don’t you think by the end result?
Besides, we love us a bit of kitsch served up the parliamentarian way. All those in favor, say ‘Aye’.

  1. Looks to me like a blatant copy of somebody’s idea. Also, the current Indian PM may be a good PM but he does not have that much star power…

    Disclaimer: I do not have much knowledge about the current Indian politics and Obama is loosing his popularity in the last 9 months but I still thought that the current Indian PM is not once in a millennium kind of celebrity.

    • Actually ! come to think about it , It looks more like a campaign T shirt . I don’t think these kind of shirts have any market other than the election year….

      I would think that ppl would put their kids pics after getting inspired this but wait aren’t moms doing that for like 50 years ?

      Bottom line: the one on the left looks like a long t shirt for 2012 and the right one looks like a shameless copy of the not so original idea on the left.

  2. I love the Obama dress. I love the President that way…anything alluding to him I think alludes to hope and that’s always good. I missed a really important microbiology lab just to watch his inaguration. He’s pretty awesome.

    I like that the PM is getting similar treatment, but something about how plagiarised this is makes me cringe. So I realllly hate the sentiment behind the second dress (plagiarism rather than a love of “hope and change”).

      • wow I LOVE how evolved, sensitive and politically correct you are. And I’m also glad to note that you are intelligent enough not to make arrogant generalizations and broadly sweeping statements

        @ pia: aww…that’s the kind of response my mom would have (and I mean that in the NICEST way possible)

  5. niiice… very manish arora like i must say.(boy, i loove manish arora’s artistic creations.) I wont say anything about the idea and if it was ripped off or not.

    And whoever says manmohan singh isnt a celebrity should think twice. He’s been ruling the roost two terms over… he’s a silent charmer when it comes to getting things done.
    ( I am very glad its him and not some narendra modi face on that dress…every dress made in his honour would be a funny sick orange.yelch!)

    And as for the obama dress, man wouldnt it be wonderfully hilarious to see michelle obama in it?
