La Tomatina

After intervention, the proposed ‘La Tomatina’ to be held at the Palace Grounds,Bengaluru has been scrapped.
La Tomatina, whose history dates back to 1945, when a person hurled a tomato as a weapon, soon became a cultural celebration in the Valencian city of Bunol in Spain.
In this world of capitalistic tradition, exploitation is the word. From the insanely boring sequel to a previous blockbuster to a repeat plot-line in the next installment, men behind those ideas get away rich.

“When you’re young, you look at television and think, There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.”
– Steve Jobs , Interview with Wired,1996

The people who do that are spendthrift, having enough to spend on their previous experiences.In this case, playing out the movie scene in their real life. All that is needed is an exploiter.
Introduce the economic theory of Capitalism.
That’s it. As long as there are people who provide them, till then lasts  the supply.
