CAT Walk

I didn't know that this news was important enough to make it to the International Section of The Hindu. Have they run out of stories?


  • Like the adage,.."poonaikum oru kaalam (column) varum...."

    RIP Humphrey !

  • Prabhu *grin*
    Kaps, "cat walk" *grin*

    gues Hindu is trying to keep up with the times... I mean, the deccan chronicle or whatever is competition!

    That being said....I think this is The Hindu's way of well seeimng 'hip' and 'cool'....:P

  • TOI did that a few years ago and is nowhere near the epitome that it was once.
    Hindu is going the same way. Capitalist forces taking over the "Red Brigade" @ the Hindu? Seems like...

  • @Prabhu,

    They have other ways to react to competition.

    Putting a cat's pic would not make it hip and cool. They need to focus on Bips and Mallika Sherawat.

    Good thought! how did they miss it. I heard that lot of people pay money to get knighted...so the cat might not have had enough money.

    yeah....they are definitely entitled to be in the limelight....but the hindu could has mentioned it in some other section. normally they publish only serious stuff in International section.

    Thanks for dropping by. this is three much.

    i expected this comment from a PR / communication professional.

    @Rubic Cube,
    i don't think capitalist forces can enter The Hindu so easily.

  • If it is of any consolation, cnn carried it on its headline, so did all the news portals on their 'odd news' section...

    looks like Hindu's international section is odd...huhh ;)

    but, bel. it or not, i visit hindu only for the sports section, that too with R.Mohan exiting Hindu, it is only so-so stuff....

    Talking of hindu, you'd find another interesting news story, when you visit my blog...
