Mexican girl’s public Facebook invite goes viral, 1.2 million guests confirm presence

first_imgA birthday party with ‘millions’ of guests!Even Princess Diana’s birthday party would not be as GRAND as Rubi Ibarra Garcia’s, and add to it the fact that this to-be-15-year-old Mexican girl did not even want this.Rubi Ibarra Garcia’s father made a sweet video and posted it on Facebook. The video was made to invite his daughter’s close friends and a few family members to a birthday bash. It was just a simple invite that said “Rubi’s ‘quinceanera'”.It also said, “Hello, how are you? We invite you this 26 of December to the 15th birthday party of our daughter, Rubi Ibarra Garcia.(sic)”.He was generous to end it by saying “hereby everyone is cordially invited. (sic)”What happened next is unbelievable!Ibarra left the Facebook invite open to the public (Dad problems) and it went viral. To his astonishment, 1.2 million signed up for attending his daughter’s birthday party.The small village of La Joya in Mexico might have to host a birthday-mob and we hope it turns out an exciting affair. Help from police has been requested to ‘handle’ the guests and other appropriate measures are being taken to prepare for it.On the other hand, social media users are having a blast. It is flooded with memes, where more than 1.2 million people are joking that they will attend the almost-royal bash in a field.Some cannot stop laughing, others are being kind to the girl.Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal even did a comical skit impersonating the girl’s father. It seems a 30 per cent discount is being offered by an airline to the nearest airport to La Joya with the tagline “Are you going to Rubi’s party?”advertisementDespite the initial shock, Ruby’s dad has sportingly made fun arrangements for the party.The young Mexican girl’s plans were surely not to throw this Great Gatsby-like bash. But it has been reported that those who do turn up will get to enjoy music by three bands and the winner of a horse race will win 10,000 pesos (Rs. 39,000). We are too, looking forward to this event, which has become an internet sensation.last_img read more

Matter of choice

first_imgAt times we all feel that life is very complicated but only a few of us are able to express the dilemmas in right manner. Artist Aarti Zaveri expresses the same through her art work at upcoming United Art Fair. The artist believes that, it is very easy to complicate a beautiful life and at the same time very difficult to simplify the essence of life. These thoughts are reflected in her paintings by the use of bold and vibrant colours.  She has created a body of work around these figurative expressions. One can sense the attempt to convey her deep thoughts through the use of symbols and signs in a subtle and minimal manner in each painting. The canvas reflects the basic complexity of a human to find answers in the outside world when all the answers needed are already present within us.The last edition of her installations in United Art Fair, were based on the theme, how a person wears a mask to conceal various truths of life. Which was based on artistes belief that life is a paradox and a puzzle, the ones who solve it, makes it simple and the rest remains to be just a part of the puzzle.With her recent work she is giving out a beautifull message that everyone has an option to make their lives easy or difficult, it depends on us what we choose.last_img read more
