Whats going on? Lets hazard a of chess, or worse still, a power play Bollywood style, villain vs common man? I always suspected our politicians to have serious misgivings of their heroism, not to forget their penchant for desi flicks.

But this was, lets face it, a good twist to an otherwise, drab, monotonous, predictable action movie. So it begins with a bang, err..ban.Fury unleashed via angry posts, indications of solidarity. sticky articles, beefing up for the final take. Both sides perched precariously, t.v. channels raking in the moolah. Torn between erudition over blasts or rhetoric over the ban, literary genius reaches a crescendo.

Innumerable, interviews, articles and trp’s later, the ban gets lifted. Site meters go crashing, hindsight brings forth posts of futility of exercise and cynicism of public outrage. In other words, life returns to normal on the blogosphere, with a happy ending, where good has triumphed, pro active citizen is lauded and the blogger emerged victorious stroking his whiskers at ‘fait accompli’…

Ah ah..but jumping the gun leads to barrings and bannings..literally. What was mistaken as the end was in fact the Intermission point.The second half is when the villain manages a coup. The first half was the ‘trial run’, deviously enacted to estimate strength and modus operandi. Just when all seemed cool on the western front, another ban was let loose.This time, selectively, as if to minimise backing and support. Struck by the audaciousness of the villain, hero now caught off guard and flummoxed..

to be continued..

Lets pioneer an idiom a la RGV, where the ending is creative, open and contiguous.

(Our sages (my gang of five stoned by our boss pancham da’s strains) advise two methods to dealing with madness. Counter it in equal proportion or then recall a bollywood film replete with mutitudinous tips to meet the challenge.

Btw, Incable in Mumbai has banned yet again, under directive from DoT, as of yesterday, so said an official.

Banging ones head against a wall in frustration was not a viable option)


  1. I know making light of the situation is what is right..but all the same, why just one isp? Its funny really! so till when are you guys gonna wait? Now that its not the whole blogosphere, I am sure none are going to speak up. You will have to fight on your own kaveetaa.
