Linkin Park - 4th October

The Blog Herald reports that the first Indian Blog Network is scheduled to be launched on 5th October. There will be 50 channels under this Blog Network and the blogs will be run by full-time bloggers. Some of their cartoons are cool.

Those of you who wish to catch the much talked about SRK Lux ad can catch it here

Kaun Banega Comedian? (via News Today)

I stumbled upon this tribute to late composer Mahesh Mahadevan (he composed music for the Kamal starrer Nammavar). The comment on this post led to the discovery of a blog by TV, film and ad personality Mohan Ram.

Maalan speaks out on Moral Policing (via New Indian Express)

Sushila Ravindranath also hits out at the so-called protectors of Tamil culture

Shobha Warrier on what all the Big Brother can do in Chennai

Whose morals are these anyway? (via News Today)

Bishwanath Ghosh requests us to take the India Today and Outlook surveys with a sackful of salt.

Findings from a survey on online spending habits of Indians

How to prevent a hangover? (via Business Standard)

Chennai HC allows Park Hotel to admit guests

Does it really matter whether your hair-cutting saloon has a ISO 9001 certification? This ‘hair stylist’ in Chennai thinks that it can make a difference.

Ghajini reviews in the Blogosphere – Suresh, Ram and Balaji
As expected the Blog reviews have hit us before the MSM reviews are out.

Tamil publishing house Vikatan group launches a personal finance magazine (Naanayam Vikatan) in Tamil. The educated folks would be better off sticking on to magazines like Outlook Money (formerly Intelligent Investor).

  • i didnt realise that the SRK Lux ad, also had female stars in it. I guess its meant to reach all women - even the homosexual and bisexual ones ;-)

  • OMG!!! The second part of the Lux ad is worse than the first. Where have all the creative brains gone??

  • Shobha Warrior's article is very very disturbing! I dint have the guts to go through any other article.

    There should be something majorly done to mend the image that Chennai has. Though I really dont think things are this serious but we should do something to those pricks, i mean those cops...

    Educating them on city culture would be a nice idea...
    Yes, this is not the Chennai that we wanna live in...DO NOT let these dumb kakhi clad villagers spoil the name of our city...I ve had awesome fun in Chennai, and I just cant see myself getting arrested in the midst of all the fun..!! Damn these buggers..

    Ok Chill...

  • Thanks!Couple of trivia on Mahesh:

    He was supposed to do 'Roja'.MR went to ARR because Mahesh had to undergo treatment at that time.

    Chitra Mahesh,his wife is a columnist in 'The Hindu'.

    Cheers

  • @J'adore,
    Lux is a family soap.....SRK wud have refused to act if women were not involved

    @Vee-jay,
    I guess this ad is working for Lux.....it has created enuf buzz

    @Chennai Chatter,
    I think Shobha Warrier's article is a bit exaggerated

    @Antrix,
    Maybe they want to prove their quality (especially after the PM spoke about it in this years NDP speech)

    @Carnatakam,
    I hv also read somewhere that Mahesh was supposed to have done Roja. Mahesh's loss was ARR's gain
    I didn't know that Mahesh's wife works for The Hindu. Haven't read any of her articles before.

    @Maverick,
    The ghee bit sounded wierd........hope the other suggestions work

  • Blogged a strong reaction to the mindless Chennai-bashing of Shobha Warrier on Rediff.

    For that matter, just do a Google on "Shobha Warrier" and see for yourself.

    Trash journalism sucks worse than moral policing :-)
