The Last Action Hero

Posted on April 2, 2012

As it turns out, apart from being the World ‘We did it for Sachin Tendulkar’ day, 2nd April is also Ajay Devgan’s birthday. There was a time in the early nineties during my formative years(though the quantity of formation that happened in those formative years is debatable) when I was a die-hard Ajay Devgan fan. I mean, after mom convinced me that I cannot possibly be Sunny Deol ever, even if they feed me Complan intravenously. Those were tough times and I needed a new  hero, a new idol. And Ajay Devgan dirtbiked into my life.   (Classy since 1990)   For a scrawny teenager with a before-fairness-challenges complexion and side-parted hair, Ajay Devgan was the perfect idol. When Jigar released, I was regularly…


Saala system hi kharaab hai

Posted on September 25, 2011

<Bad things ahead. Be warned> I have a shitty digestive system. Literally and figuratively. To be frank, none of my systems are up to the mark. Digestive, Excretory, Circulatory, Nervous –  You name it. All are equally disappointing. I think when God was distributing healthy organs I was probably sitting in a corner tweeting lame jokes(and checking the number of retweets every now and then). But I’ll still blame God for going all CWG on my body – the infrastructure is so appalling. According to a recent theory, I can blame this on something else but it is easier to assume that God ditched me and all the goodies went to John Abraham. So here I am, stuck with a digestive system that is…


We are all Knuts

Posted on August 1, 2011

I love Twitter more than I love Facebook. I remember days on spent on Twitter: hashtags, earthquakes, conversations, the U2 live concert. Happy and sad memories. Facebook never offered me any such moment. Until this. Two things: One, obviously I am bad at punning. Two, we moved on to Chemistry. This is how it looked. Knuts indeed. P.S.: Dear Sandy, Valerie and Sunny, that was the best time I ever had on Facebook. Ever. Love, Tantanoo P.P.S: Comments on my sad punning skills will be fed to Blast-ended Skrewts


Google Plus and Harry Potter

Posted on July 29, 2011

There is no dearth of articles on Google Plus and of late I’ve been reading a lot of them(thanks to Manuscrypts and some zealous Google Reader buddies). Well, after much reading and reasoning, I’ve come to a conclusion that: Google Plus is Harry Potter You know how Harry Potter was born and there was a lot of hoopla and doubt. Google Plus’s birth was surrounded by a similar hint of confusion and subsequent celebrations. – and how Harry was being touted as ‘Voldemort-killer’ and ‘Google Plus’ is being touted as a ‘Facebook-killer’. – and how Harry and Voldemort are somewhat alike. Same goes for Google Plus and Facebook. They are like Hrithik Hroshan and Harman Baweja. – and Harry Potter lived with the worst…


Tantanoo’s Must Watch Videos at a YouTube Party Playlist

Posted on July 27, 2011

I get only 43% of the cartoons posted on XKCD. For example, I didn’t get this recent one on Google+ and had to go all the way to Explain XKCD. Even that didn’t help much. But I do get the easier ones and swear by XKCD in any andho-mein-kaana-raja type situation. And then there are times when I TOTALLY get an XKCD comic. Like TOTALLY. This comic was a part of those rarest-of-rare moments.   (There is also a similar Doghouse Diaries strip-which predates XKCD’s comic btw)


A dead blog and a lonely girl

Posted on May 10, 2011

Last night turned out to be a special night. Last night, There goes a thought reached the 50000 hits milestone. Now in SEO terms, 50000 hits is like Mimoh’s debut(s). But considering that I’ve deleted almost all my older blogs before they hit puberty, 50K hits is a big deal for me. So last night out of sheer boredom, I delved deep into TGAT’s analytics reports, trying to figure out the kind of people who visited TGAT via Google. The results have been very encouraging. 11221: Number of people who arrived to TGAT looking for Nobel Peace Prize and its cousins including: Nobel Piece Prize, Novel Peace Prize, Nobal Peace Prize, Nobel Pease Price and Nobel Prices 895: People who came to TGAT looking…


(Another) Open Letter to Anna

Posted on May 2, 2011

Dear Anna, Like many others before me, I am writing you an Open letter(and guess what, it is 5 in the morning today too). But I have never written an Open letter before, so if this letter isn’t open enough or feels closed in any way, please forgive me for the same. I am writing to you to express my feelings about your agitation and the JLP bill. I wanted to travel to Jantar Mantar and express these feelings in person but by the time I’d have reached Delhi from Chennai, your fast might have ended. And IPL was also around the corner so I didn’t want to take any chances. However I’ve been assured by some twitter friends that a blog is the…
