They searched this and found Swadeshe

Humour, Zeitgeist

Even as my new post struggles towards completion, I thought it might be interesting to see what contributes to the trickle of people coming here from search-engines. Just to add value (and create some stickiness for the post) I have added my estimate [on a scale of -100 to 100] and remarks as to how much ‘user satisfaction‘ the visit could have provided!

  1. :-) @ (al)legion
    And by “…growing fans…” did you mean:
    – They are all young kids in the rapidly growing/developing stage of life. Why would you attract such a crowd..? Unless you are leading a parallel life a la Shaktiman ;-)
    – They are ‘growing’ in their mid-riffs… Now dont look down… just enjoy the mirth in girth :-)


  2. well…yes it is dodo-headedness to not believe that the bowler in question would bowl legitimately in the laboratory, BUT ( as in harbhajan’s case) it saves the bowlers the drudgery of (public) shame and embarassment!!….not to forget ( again, as in bhaji’s case) the grind of going through the process again and again.
    Fines and penalties are not the only corrective measures, saving face and humiliation should be reason enough for not ‘chucking’ bowling ethics.
