3. Can you explain two ways in which you think advertising affects issues of equality in a democracy?

Answer

Two ways in which advertising affects  issues of equality in a democracy:

(i) It only focuses on the  lives of the rich  and famous  and forgets about  the issues of poverty, discrimination and dignity.

(ii)  Advertising tends  to promote a certain lack of respect for the poor.  As in a democracy, all people are equal and should  be able to lead a life of dignity.

 
4. Making an advertisement requires a lot of creativity. Let us imagine a situation in which a manufacturer has just made a new watch. She says that she wants to sell this watch to school children. She comes to your class and asks you all to create a brand name as well as an advertisement for the watch. Divide the class into small groups and each group create an advertisement for this watch. Share it with the class.
