This word is put to several uses by the people of Delhi.

“Hain?” - sharp, to the point, almost like a jab, with both eyes wide open, eyeballs about to pop out.

Hainnn?” - with eyebrows arched, maxillary central incisors all visible, representing their dislike for what they’ve just heard.

“Haaaiiinnn?” - Long-drawn out, representing their unwillingness to try and understand what you’re saying. Commonly used by babus with paunches at government offices, especially after lunch hour.

The Guide on People

It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

Here's why...


... I like The Pink Chaddi Campaign.

It's nasty — it will disgrace Pramod Muthalik, and rightly so.

It's non-violent — no underpants were killed in this movement.

It's eye-catching — I think underpants are a scandalous and powerful medium of expression.

It's witty — the protesters also have a smart tagline: "Because Chaddis Are Forever."

It's simple — and simple ideas tend to catch on quickly.

More power to the campaign.

What do I think of Valentines Day? Here's a post on the subject from last year.

Folks, I have some news I'd like to share. This blog, along with two others I manage (Jobs Media and Sursuri), are in the process of moving to an independent domain, Urban Munky.

If you like reading this blog, I'd request you to subscribe to the RSS feed to help me out with the blog transfer, so that I do not miss any readers.

If you were already subscribed to my default Blogger feed, I have some bad news: that feed has been broken for a couple of weeks. I'd recommend you switch to the Feedburner feed.

If you don't use an RSS reader, but would still like a way to track this blog, I recommend the email delivery option. Signing up is very simply. There will be no spam. All my blog posts will land in your mail box. Just click here.

Thanks for reading.
