your good name, please?

in case you are in the market for a brand new name, help is at hand. literally. Key in your name in ms word. If that bright red line appears below your name, hurrah! good old ms word has some alternatives you might be interested in.

see what i found for karthik venkat: Kathie Venal.

Martha Vodka came a close second!

Jai Arjun tried it out with a few famous names. The results were hilarious.

he's been jammed!


this man could soon be exposed by the collective power of the indian blog world. meet mr.arindham chaudhuri. he runs the indian institute of planning and management (you must have seen their full-page ads in the papers).

jam magazine recently carried an article about his little joint. he wasn't impressed. so he sent a bunch of hoodlums(students of iipm?) to ransack the jam office. in addition, a bunch (or is it one person with different ids?) of iipm loyalists put up filthy comments on the blog of rashmi bansal, the editor of jam.

meanwhile, gaurav sabnis provided more information about iipm. so iipm forced gaurav into a situation where he had to choose between his beliefs and his job. gaurav went with his beliefs.

word about this soon spread around the indian blogosphere, and now mr.chaudhuri's con act is being exposed, blog-after-blog, at:
desipundit, youthcurry, indian writing, india uncut, kitabkhana, dcubed, jabberwock,vantage point, suderman and many other blogs.

welcome to the show, and do spread the jam about iipm.
