East is Easy-Going

Ok, swear to God, I promised myself I shall stay away from the blog today...

But this calls for an emergency post.

The world (accha India, sorry I tend to get carried away) has been shaken by this post: Open Letter to a Delhi Boy

That's all it takes: one good old North-South rabble rousing post, and you are famous. And here I am, blogging for more than four years, for a grand total of four readers...

Why, oh why, am I from the East? My parents are responsible for my obscurity... and Tagore too (don't ask me why)

Dude...the East and West MUST war. The north-South thing has gotten boring now. ;)

@chandni

sighh... we Bongs are mild and peaceful as long as we have our afternoon siestas, ilish machh, chai and rosogolla. And of course, Tagore...

But let me try to stir up a controversy and blog provocatively against Bal Thackeray and the marathi manoos

Pooja said...

Jesus yes, all this controversy is making this girl, sprouting all this vile, super popular. I wonder if that was the point of her post all along? Ah the East is much too chilled out and gentle to bother with spewing such tripe. Though it might be worth it to end the north-south endless debate!

Nefertiti said...

@pooja
what can i say about the girl? mallika sherawat in the making...

i so want to rant and rave and bcome popular :(

P.S.: welcome!

Heathcliffs Girl said...

So many obsecene lines in that post not to mention the wide gaping generalizations. The intelligence of a three year old autistic combined with something I forget.. Wah wah, excellent analogy. ;/ ugh

survivingbrain said...

We all are war loving people I guess.

the video of wife slapping her husband in her personal life is looped in the TV news and if a farmer makes a land fertile and lives in peace, nobody actually wants him.

peace, has nothing interesting in it. May be.

@Heathcliff's Girl
who cares? dude, she is FAMOUS!!!
obscenity sells. ovrnight she has become th rakhi sawant of blogosphere.

@survivingbrain
you either choose peace or fame. or junk food (in my case)...

@Occasional Brilliance
:) welcome...
and yea, I did read that one as well. personally i think the original post doesnt deserve ANY response.

Blogger should introduce a minimum maturity clause for posts to be published.

quiet thoughts said...

Bal Thackeray ahh that would be interesting but the dude is like 85 year old .Better pick on his nephew

Nefertiti said...

@quiet thoughts

ahhh... i can already picture myself writing the open letter to a Mumbai boy :)
and thanks for dropping by...

Kaustav said...

I know that particular post has become a north-south thing...but whatever she wrote, is it sumthing only south indians feel about Delhi or Delhites?? really??

Nefertiti said...

@kaustav

I suppose it's more to do with what individuals feel about a certain other individual. The problem arises when the feelings are generalized...

Neil said...

You actually bothered to write about a one hit wonder? 6 months down the line lets revisit this post.

Nefertiti said...

6 months down the line she will be coming out with a book and too busy to blog... such is life!!

Neil said...

You should read I too had a love story by Ravinder Shah. It will answer a lot of your lifes questions. And bring you peace.

Nefertiti said...

@ neil

why would I do that to myself? A certain Ms AJ has already warned me of the consequences...

Neil said...

I myself will warn you of the perils of reading it. But it opens your eyes to lifes bigger puzzles.

Nefertiti said...

@neil
such as?

Neil said...

Im not disclosing my worldly wisdom for free on your blog, will ping you about it.

Nefertiti said...

@neil
some people are such pricey bitches...

Neil said...

I know. How do you put up with them? Ok dont answer if you too dont want to dispel world wisdom for free on your blog ....

ssoggo said...

You know, I seriously, albeit boringly, believe that obscurity is way acceptable over notoriety any day..
I mean, do you really want to be famous for hurting people's feelings and exposing yourself as a racist (honking South India's horns against North Indians is Racist!)??

Nefertiti said...

@neil
stop crying like a girl... we need to get you drunk!

@ssoggo
well i have done the obscurity thing... someday I would also like the notoriety if only for the heck of it. just to experience it you know and then come back to my boring nice self

@ Noah said...

FYI. Random surfing landed me here, couple of posts down I am kind of liking the blog. 4 readers u said :-) haha. Strange. I think the way you write is something thats natural and precisely the way I like my reading served :-) keep blogging. And count me in as a reader ... :-)

Nefertiti said...

@noah
