[Guest post] Volonter pou Moris
Welcome back to yashvinblogs.com. Today, we gonna welcome a new guest writer, who calls himself “Vendetta”. The latter mailed me his article a few days back, but I promised to publish it during the weekend. Thanks a lot to him for his article which proves that he is really knows a lot about what we are going to talk. So, here it goes.
Many of you are probably aware of the numerous ads on the billboard, themed “volonter pu morice”. Well is it? Or is it a total blasphemy to the whole belief of being independent and genuinely influence people with remarkable thoughts. Alas, these ads are not only an insult to the idea of being independent but has also several infringements to the copyright act and is a prime example of plagiarism (if i am not wrong).

Voila, i present you the real deal, the battle of Iwo Jima. Being myself a war connoisseur, I could talk for hours about wars and its implications, but I will keep it short for now
A short while after Japanese attacked Pearl harbor in 1941, Americans were so zealously eager to avenge back. They started to conquer island by island in the Pacific, thus beginning the Pacific campaign of World War II. In early 1945, they reached Iwo Jima; Americans had in mind to capture several important assets on the island, one of them was airfields. The battle of Iwo Jima was one of a kind; it was ferocious, and viciously terrifying. Outnumbered, the Japanese lost to the Americans, who marked this event by raising their flag at the top of Mount Suribachi. Ironically, this battle took place during March, same as our (in)dependence. This is what I conclude, on one hand, the battle of Iwo Jima, a battle of heroes who defended their country at the most single threat to their freedom and on the other hand, probably some lazy ass Mauritian Graphic designer ripping others’ work as his own dignity is fading away.
I do not know who did that ads, but if I ever have the chance to talk to that person, this is what I will probably say:
“Your illustrator skills sucks big time, my friend! Your vectors are so representative of your incompetence and your inability to respect any moral or social values. Oh yes! I have Photoshop and Illustrator skills to back my comments.”
Anyone who knows the one who did this ad, please mail him/her the link to this post. Thanks.
To those who died in that fierce battle, shall your names be ever engraved in history.
