    Been wanting to get in on descritics to publish some articles. No response from the “powers that be” at

    You seem to be a regular; help?

    Sorry about that Sushil. it’s been a crazy sort of few weeks. Please check your email tomorrow. πŸ™‚

    As you can see, I am now “on”. This confirms my assessment that you are someone who has clout, or atleast knows one way more than e-something for establishing contact.

    Like most indians I have a view on everything. So blogging has made its place in my calendar!

    Well, i’d tell you what it is but then i’d have to kill you.

    This is slowly becoming a bulletin board to leave stuff for you on! Perhaps that tells more about you than you intended for this space.

    Read that lovestory. Wanted to comment on it. But the two hundred odd comments there left me unsure this would reach you. And this had to reach you: There is something in that story which is real, true. It defies explanation as one discovered at great expense. But true it is. The polemics and the extremely judgemental views in the comments posted cannot wash away… the truth.

  19. Amrita

    June 26, 2007 at 11:00 am

    Sushil – you think so? πŸ™‚

    Thanks for that. And yes, you did right to post that here because I wouldn’t have read it there. It’s an unfortunate side effect of the trallapalooza.

  20. Sushil Sharma

    June 27, 2007 at 5:29 am

    New word – trallapalooza. Dont know what it means….. Read a book written by a friend “Games Indians Play”. A must read. AM going to review it for DC. It really is an amazing and socially relevant book.

  21. Amrita

    June 27, 2007 at 11:44 am

    oops, misspelled it – i meant : trOllapalooza. It means a vast gathering of trolls and i might just have made it up πŸ™‚ cool, looking forward to it.

    Hi Amrita,

    An about me that says nothing!
    A picture that says as much as it doesnt (assuming it’s yours).!
    Posts which tell more then they hide!!

    Ramjee – aren’t I clever? πŸ˜€ No, the avatar is a Dali painting of his sister. But it says a lot about me, I think! And the posts… Ha!

    Howdy, we just got over wit the initial phase of streaming music portal, and on wit efforts of developing second phase where everyone will be able to network accordingly (cant disclose much, you know). Startup at the moment, is what we are πŸ™‚

    Amrita, thought I’d write here to get your attention. The next Carnival of Feminists is being hosted at my blog on Oct 24th. I think you are sympathetic to the cause πŸ™‚ and have a wide readership, so is it possible to put out a call for submissions? (Just a request).

    Hi Amrita,

    We run a sports media company which provides sports content. A client of our’s is looking for freelance entertainment writers. I’d like you think that you would a very good job in that role.

    Can you mail us your email address or contact number or both, so that we could pass it on to this client of ours and from there the client would take up further discussions with you?

    Hiding from offline world is not that easy and I like your attempts in doing so. But then, you give away your full name (don’t know if it’s real) in desicritics and link to here. I don’t understand the point πŸ™‚ Anyways some nice writeups there…

  59. Amrita

    March 15, 2008 at 12:04 am

    Saagar – thanks πŸ™‚ My name is real and the reason why I don’t write anything more in the About section is because I’d like people to form their opinions based on the writing rather than who I am in the real world.

    Hi Amrita!

    Thank you for your encouraging comments to one of my posts. Coming from you, whose writing I quite admire, this is great praise indeed.

    I am quite a babe-in-the-woods when it comes to blogging. Any tips or feedback you may have, would be highly appreciiated!! πŸ™‚


  62. Amrita

    March 25, 2008 at 3:20 pm

    Rada – you’re being entirely too kind πŸ™‚ I dont really do anything special, i’ve just been lucky in finding people whom i like to read and then having them reciprocate and spread the word. You’re doing pretty well as far as the content goes from the looks of it! If I do have any advice it’s something i once heard: the ability to write is like any other muscle in your body. the more your work it, the better it’ll perform.
    Oh, and have fun πŸ™‚
