The Pink Chaddi Blog!!

I can't believe this! There actually is a Pink Chaddi Blog! I mean, I have been reading about it over the past weeks, and I know that it started as a Facebook group, but that they actually have a blog deserves advertisement! Click here for the link to the blog!
A Consortium of Pubgoing and loose women! :D I feel good and happy about the Campaign. I think it's very emancipatory, but above all, come on, that kind of protest is barely ever seen in India. Cheers to the Pink Chaddis!

The World's Most Famous Video

I think this video is the world's most famous video! It was posted on the 30th of January 2009, and 6,892,881 people so far, rated 24,772 times, commented 16,286 times and above all, favourited (yeah, there is such a verb!) 64,652 times! It's just crazy! I discovered this video last week when Yani (who sometimes shares my office space) showed it to me from somebody who had sent her the link. And today, I had somebody else sending me the link. I can't deny it's hilarious and Yani and I rolled like balls all over the floor and literally cried with laughter. So I thought I should share it: It's a good laugh (though I am sure NONE of us would want to be in that kid's place when he grows up!)

Small Song for the Sun [warm poetry in the times of snow]

Although the spring has far from begun,
I sing of the warmth of th'Goddess of the Sun.
I sing the light drapes that fall from her robe,
And into my room, like a wintry draught, probe.

Oh! Beauty of the beams that filtrate the cold!
The warmth of your touch, fervently behold;
Watch as comes alive the town of Peterborough,
While to the Earth die the drops of melted snow.

I praise you for holding the old tree's demise,
I hail you for the regained smiles in your guise.
I eulogize you for warming us to such a degree*,
That today I finally sit outside and have tea!

* When I say 'a' degree, I mean it literally! It was one degree today and it felt warm!!
