No more excuses

Now that Chicken L. is back I decided to make a comeback too. Seriously for the past few months the blog sphere has been dying. And the few 'famous bloggers' who were still blogging seem immature and highly opinionated. They resisted conservatism so much that they ended up being close minded about it! Hence I grew sadder and sadder till I finally gave up coming here until one fine day who should I see posting - but CL herself. That's reason enough right?

I made a quick tour though and realised things were the same. Take the discussion on that Priya Ramani's post on India for example. I first came across it on Google Buzz (yes, there are people who actually use it!!!!!) when an aquaintance had put it up as a 'fail post'. I completely agree with him and also think that girl(woman) is an idiot who doesn't know what she's talking about (no, seriously. Where in US did she go if she didn't have strangers on the bus pouring their heart out to her or find people spitting on the road?). But to actually defend the article...!!!
Or another famous blogger who thinks posting sensational stuff is what gets her readers.
Or the other one who dramatized death! The death of the person close to her was actually the punch line of her post!!! I mean, seriously.

Oh and the actually fun bloggers - like PI, Ess, Mads, Mathika, Sayuja, Nikita, DJ, etc.. - they blog no more. Or more rarely than me.

Anyway, those were my excuses until CL's recent post.

I dedicate my comeback to her.

Keep posting. It's interesting stuff. Now if only I knew what the India fail-post was.

Here's a tip that will provide some amusement: When someone says, "Fail" or "Fail something" pretend you don't understand and correct them to "Failure" or "Failed something". Then enjoy.

Hi Chitra,

After having written to you some months ago about your dying blog, the least I owe you a comment!

I enjoyed reading your dad's comments on one of your prior posts.

If you were to come back home like many of us, it would be a great thing. But the decision must be a sensible and rational one. In the meantime, enjoy the USA while you can!

I had another IITM student here with who we wrote, you guessed it, an article for Current Science.

Keep the blog rolling.

Best regards, Anant
