Shameless Self Promotion

I haven’t written “properly” on here  in a while on account of life being what it is – but I have been getting an unbelievable amount of views and comments that has nudged me to make this post. Allow me this one indulgence?

In case you’ve missed it, my top 5 posts (ever) are –

You are a Bangalorean If – A comment on the little things that a Bangalorean would indulge in.

Ode to my 29 Teeth – A horror story about how in the great battle of life, 32 teeth soldiers went marching in and only 29 made it back alive.

I am a Weirdo – A post that, if you’re being honest, needs no elaborate introduction.

This is for you, Rami – A eulogy for a mentor, a friend and confidante.

What it means to be East African – A list of things that struck me when I was volunteering in Tanzania.

Not to say I have given up on writing. I haven’t. I have been popping out Guest Posts like a machine, a machine I tell you. This is just to nudge you in the right direction and tell you that I have created a new page called Digital Footprints that lists all the places I do manage to write in.

Just know that I’m not ignoring you. I will try to write at least one post a day. Promise.

Hope you are well.

  1. Re self promotion, I always say that if you don’t blow your own trumpet then no one else is going to blow it for you! I haven’t read most of the posts you mention but I will make a point of doing so, and keep blowing that trumpet of yours but, if you prefer an instrument other than a trumpet, E.G. a recorder then blow that instead! cheers, Kevin


    1. I prefer a vuvuzela myself. Remember them? I’m sure you’ll hear a lot of tooting very soon as we’re coming up to world cup season and all. Thank you so much K. You’re such a good supporter!


    1. Thank you so much. I tried to include photos of strange animals but I’d have to defer to you. Hope you are well. Congratulations again on finishing the book. How are you celebrating?


    1. You remember that old Indian joke? How do you pronounce DOG-HINE? And then CAT-HINE? and then they ask you how you pronounce MAC-hine. And then laugh because they’re so clever? Good times!


      1. Haha…I remember the one where you ask( very fast) f-u-t-u-r-e…..fu-tu-ree na fa-ta-ree…and rarely did anyone get the answer…neither…its future! 🙂 Hope you remain as shameless in the future! 😀


  2. OK, so I’ve started with I am a Weirdo (the most attention grabbing title). It seems to me like a manifesto for a living a mentally healthy life. But it also makes me feel like I gave in to the system by staying with an employer years after the job ceased to be fun.

    I’m looking forward to reading the other posts that I haven’t read yet. No matter where the venue is.


  3. I would like to say I love your blog and the wonderful and beautiful things you share as well as the inspiration and smiles you bring in doing so! Thank you for being you and I hope even if you do not accept awards you will accept the sentiment expressed as I honor you with one. There is no prize that comes with the award other than my appreciation and being grateful you are part of our world and making a difference by sharing in such a positive way…
    I have posted the award and link to it here I hope you will accept it or at least the sentiment behind it!

    With love,


  4. I really like your blog and what you put here. It is genuine and authentic! Its a nice retreat from the cynicism and sarcasm of my own blog and mind. With your permission I can bestow upon you the honorary spoon for 4 years of services rendered to the blogosphere ?!?!?1


  5. Te he nominado al premio Dardo es un reconocimiento a muy especial porque reconoce valores personales, éticos, culturales y literarios transmitidos a través de la escritura.


  6. Congratulations on 4 years of blogging. Quite the feat. Also know there is no such thing as shameless. You’ve written a few articles you want others to read, no shame in that. Writers prefer an audience. Lovely blog. Also enjoy the read on advertisements, at last, I am not alone in my thinking. Thankfully, I no longer watch TV so, not exposed to it, much
