Look what I stumbled upon

A blog, apparently Bipasha Basu's. It's on rediff, and it announces at the outset that it is going to be used to promote Apharan, a film by Prakash Jha, in which Bips plays a deglamourised role. No doubt the handiwork of some smart PR person, who realised that blogs have a way of spreading the word and a film like Apharan will probably need the word of mouth. There are just two posts and can you guess the number of comments? 196. Some, as expected, obscene, some just the usual fan rantings and of course all these people actually believe that it is Bips writing and editing and maintaining that blog. Got the link from here, by the way.

GSB, you pre-plagiarist! Have mentioned “Bips’ blog” in my next blog.com column. And writer-in-eggstyle will testify that I wrote it before you put up this post, so mwahaha...

Ouch Jab, that hurt. Don't equate me with you-know-who. You know I don't read all your blogs so there's no way I could have known. Why am I justifying anyway? ;)

Relax, and it isn't on my blog anyway. I don't put up the blog.com columns on my blog - that would be totally nerdish.

The law of unintended consequences is at it again. Okay, everybody, forgive everybody else, quick.

Hey Jabberwock,
I just read the column you were referring to in the BS supplement. Now I understand your comment in its entirety. Pre-plagiarist... ha ha.

Intellectual output, as a function of information and imagination, is important.

Who gets/takes credit far less so.

In the ever-relevant worldview of Bob Woodruff of Coca-Cola (and brand-man par excellence, someone who knew lots about imagery/fame/mass-adulation), credit-shyness is a strategic choice.

putting to waste some good money that could have been used in other areas of development for the business involved.

The avid Bips watcher would have noticed that the Levi's Slim fit jeans catchline has moved from the visual "Hello Gorgeous" on posters to an attempted audio-visual "Fit na" on TV.

Very clever, but a case of premature articulation nevertheless, because a slip here or a stumble there is of no great consequence.

Bush and the Republicans were not protecting us on 9-11, and we aren't a lot safer now. We may be more afraid due to george bush, but are we safer? Being fearful does not necessarily make one safer. Fear can cause people to hide and cower. What do you think? Is killing thousands of innocent civilians okay when you are doing a little government makeover?
Our country is in debt until forever, we don't have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
