Anousheh Ansari calls up Larry Page

Internet access in space?

Missing the Lucknow Durga Pujo

As GreatBong captures the emotion so well…I am going to leave the narration to him!

I’ll be missing the Indira Nagar market Pujo, the HAL Colony Pujo, the Ramakrishna Math pujo, the Bengali Club pujo, the  Boys Anglo School pujo and the La Touche Road pujo !

More Brit than the British

Not ready?

India not ready for pornographic films : Sharmila Tagore says.

Mice don’t like cheese?

It’s such a downer when some aphorisms are broken !

Next thing you know they’ll tell us that kids don’t really get delivered by storks or something ! And that there is no Santa Claus! Or they’ll find out that the earth is not really -but flat. Hey wait, someone already said that !
