Atanu Dey On India's Development

The IndiBloggies 2004

The IndiBloggies 2004 voting is under way. Some well-meaning person nominated this blog in the category Best Indiblog. I kid you not. So if you are one of the half a dozen readers of these ramblings, and if you have nothing better to do, do hop on over there and vote for some of the excellent blogs listed. Vote early and vote often, as they say. I would have surely won the award if I had Bush’s team of Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney and gang to fix the votes for me. But then I don’t and so I won’t. Pity really. It would have loooked good on my resume. Not that it would have made much of a difference to my resume. It is so pathetic that only a couple of Nobel Prizes would give it sufficient credibility for me to get a decent job. But as the man replied when he was asked by the judge why he mugged his own grandmother for a dollar, and he replied, “Your honor, every buck helps”, I too say, my resume needs all the help it can get.

    Dear Irfan (in response to last post)

    Please go buy a “thaila” of humour from the local karyana store. Inhale it deeply. The author has his heart & mind in the right place, so bear with some intelligent witticism.

    Dear Atanu
    I once told you that you’ve my vote should you run for a public office –
    Just so you know, I just voted your blog as the best blog – maybe you will win the poll, ppl will recognize you more, and before you realize, some of them might actually drag you to politics; only if India were so lucky !!
    Cheers
    Bobby

    Hmmmm. A sense of humour! Hmmmm. Interesting.

    This is one side of Atanu you don’t get to see often. I never knew this man could smile, let alone crack a few at oneself!!

    (Good luck, man! Keep up the great work!!)

    Shirley you jest. Sense of humor? Moi?

    (Now don’t respond “My name is not Shirley, and I am not joking.”)

    Anyway, have you read my bio (link at the top of the right column)?
