New blog

I spent five full hours designing a new blog, and one whole day convincing my boss to use an actual blogging software for a blog rather than maintain a blog manually. Fortunately, he understood and agreed to it. The web designer under me had a lot of innovative ideas for the blog, though - like comments, dropdown menus for navigation, a calendar to show when things were posted, etc.

Help! Help! We are being repressed!

Due to some recent incidents, the name of my beloved city has been sullied. Now, the state called Tamil Nadu is up for renaming again - to Taliban Nadu. Please keep in mind before casting a stone on me, the people who bring up these issues are not natives of Madras, they are immigrants who want to impose their will on the majority. None of the politicians, 'moral guardians', the goons protesting against 'defamation of culture', nor the jackbooted thugs in uniform, are from this great city. Nor are the 'movie stars' who preach and live a flamboyant life on screen, but want a 'conservative life' at home. The 'women' who recently 'protested' don't give a rat's arse about 'Tamil culture' - and they definitely don't speak for the 'women of Tamil Nadu'. An encounter with these 'ladies' would rot the ears off a sailor!
