After taking bucket batch and using bum washer on your kundi and then blathering (bathing + lathering) with nice sandalwood soap, you might suddenly realize that your teeths have not been brushed up. In a moment of clarity and morning lucidity you will hit your head, say ayo and reach over for Babool with practiced ease.

Babool is a toothpaste brand made from the bark of the Babool tree. The brand was positioned as an economic brand with the tagline "Babool Babool paisa vasool"

What is disturbing is that the parent company that makes Babool also makes Odomos - Indian mosquito repellant skin cream. Well if you are applying the cheap and best philosophy to oral hygiene, then perhaps a small price to pay is the irrational but plausible fear that one day you will be brushing with Odomos!
