Hari-sauri: The more vulgar you are, the more glorified you become. Especially like all these film stars and public figures, the more of a drunkard they are, then the more they're publicized in the news.
Prabhupada: Just like John Lennon. He is a public man.
Prabhupada: Just see. What he is? He's standing naked and taking photograph. His wife and he, standing naked. I have seen. And that picture is there in his sitting room, fireplace.

Hari-sauri: ...he becomes very attractive.
