  • If Wikipedia is what that Brittanica Executive says, that how was Brittanica able to collect so much data?? They even sell somebody's **** from somebody's toilet seat!

    And BITS is well known in our township as getting seat in that is seen as a pride... :-)


    Could you pls reduce the number of posts that is shown in ur page..?? given the amt of data u put in.. it take a long time to load when it is connected thru dialup at home.

  • @Thennavan,

    I think the Suchitra Pillai article was supposed to be "How to conduct a budget wedding?". But after reading thru it I realized that it was a grand event.


    Which newspaper are u referring to?

    @Magnus Astrum,

    Point taken. Will do something about it.


    I realized that it was a lengthy post.....however I had no choice as I thought of sharing all these with other readers.

  • Was it truly a "pleasure trip to Hawaii"? Or did they spend most of their free time studying their dictionaries for the next spelling bee ;^)

  • @Yardboy,

    In this age of cost cutting it is surprising to hear companies do organize such bashes for their employees. I plan to track this firm and find out how they fare 1 / 2 years from now.
