Been getting tons of emails and the site counter has been zooming along famously. Long lost friends have been mailing in. But amidst that I again got a few mails/comments from people who said the post was trash and had factual errors and belittled northies. The Customer, alas, is king. So I confess everything. Yes dear world, I was trying to be funny, yes yes I got the castes of some of the names wrong. Yes in Tamil it is an "appalam" and not "poppadom". Yes, I was trying to bring a little joy and cheer into the world. Yes (sob sob) yes I was exaggerating the truth, noone would throw their children off a window after naming them. DEAR WORLD I HAVE SINNED!!!
So shoot me.
(P.S. Currently working on a post on success in the workplace for new recruits and first time employees. I am trying to cut down the humour and bring it more true to life. It wil be co-written by a close personal associate, Miss Pinky, a ballet dancing elephant from Jhumri Thalaiyya. She is very good at reality checks.)
