The problem with taking a self-imposed sabbatical from alcohol is that sometimes when you start drinking again, it can get a bit hairy. So, after being alternately a good boy and then a bad boy, I've decided to take another break from booze. Masybe the fact that my throat feels has this weird after-taste of Pinot-Noir and Baileys, maybe it is a good idea. I think the Sambuca shots from last night are still sloshing in my insides.
Anyway, to respond to the last post.
Far-fetched? Never denied the fact that it wasn't - but from Bennett's perspective it makes complete sense, while some people might laugh it away, the whispers are getting stronger. Maybe because this blog attracts bored types in this world, but also from the type of people to whom the internet remains an enigma.
Will it happen? No clue whatsoever. But, as I said, the possibility exists. After all, the combined entity would have a 95% market-share in North India. Need a good way to reach SEC A/A+ in North India, can't beat this combo.
Will it be allowed to happen? Remember, Madam is an RS MP for the Congress (from Rajasthan). But, I am pretty sure that there will (and there should) be a public outcry. But then again, given that sometimes you realise that there in nothing worthwhile in either paper, should people care if at all. Of course, at least both papers haven't come down to Aaj Tak/India TV standards as yet - a funny world where dwarves get married and people have sex with trees, though disconcertingly Rakhi Sawant is making it out of the supplements and into the main papers (though I must admit, I do have a grudging admiration for the spunk of that woman).
Was I drunk when I wrote the post? No, I usually post from office. I have better things to do when drunk than write on a blog. Or work.
I have been fascinated with new apps on mobile phones of late - particularly Facebook on the mobile. I mean there is a weird feeling writing on someones wall when you're sitting across them. Of course, I'm a complete social misfit, and with this application I complete the process, but heck, who cares? And for god's sake, someone please give the mobile operators more spectrum!
Next post based on a conversation I had with a friend in Bombay on the state of the media.
