Well, I cannot promise that I will be a prolific or amazing diarist but I will try to comment as amusingly and relevantly as I can on the stupidity of the various idiots in society, as well as massaging all the chips on my shoulder, cracking a few jokes, and generally unloading my pessimism and gripes around the place. Let’s see what happens.

    Congratulations on your new blog, Jay Singh

    You should link to Sepia Mutiny too.

    By the way, regarding the motto under your blog name — one of the funniest (in a Goodness Gracious Me kinda way) blurbs I’ve seen on a desi blog was the one by Punjabi Boy (who I’ve mentioned before and who was spookily similar to you). It said “Yeah ? What’re you gonna do about it ?”

    Along the same lines of “You lookin’ at my sister ?!” etc etc. You get the idea.

    Anyway, maybe we should all think up something similarly badmaash for your blog too.

    Am looking forward to some humorous and eloquent insights on life from you on your blog.

    Sunny asked me if I would like to keep a diary at the Pickled Politics domain name and I said yes, and he provided the blog, I just type in my entries. I have never had a blog before and I don’t intend to write every day, just a two or three times a week I suppose. I don’t know who this guy called Punjabi Boy you keep talking about is, and I am perplexed as to why you keep thinking I am him.

    “Two or three times a week” is still a lot more frequent than many people who have “full-time” blogs, so kudos to you.

    I’ve toyed with the idea of having my own blog too, but decided not to bother as I frequently post my usual thoughts on life on Sepia Mutiny anyway, and doing so on my own blog would just entail me repeating myself

    I’m just kidding about Punjabi Boy, I know you’re not actually him, as you’ve mentioned previously. However, he was (is ?) exactly like you ! Rohin/BongBreaker will know exactly what I mean — the similarity, at least in terms of your on-line personas and posts, is very striking. I wonder if he’s actually one of your cousins or something, who was secretly posting on SM under an assumed alias and had his own blog for a while too…..

    Hmm, the plot thickens…..

    Anyway, jokes aside, congrats again on your new blog. You write very well and your musings are always eloquent and intelligent, so I’m sure whatever you write will be ample food for thought.

    Best wishes,
