    Featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park

    Imagine my shock, surprise and excitement to find out that my review of Slumdog Millionaire was featured in Mumbai Mirror’s Bloggers’ Park.

And, thanks to @rahuljrark of Cool Tricks N Tips for pointing this out to me.

    Hindustan Times @250/yr

    Mom just subscribed to the Hindustan Times Corporate Offer @ 250. You get an annual subscription of Hindustan Times for only Rs. 250/- plus a Tupperware kit (good one, I personally checked this out 😉 ) I don’t know how good the newspaper is. Reading the Economic Times consumes a good amount of my travelling time, so I don’t think I will get much chance reading yet another newspaper!
