Rebirth?


Chandresh Narayanan in (where else but ...) the Times of India informs us that Andrew Flintoff may miss the Third Test. He (Flintoff, not Narayanan) will fly home for “the birth of his new-born child”. Born-again bairn, eh?

Belief in rebirth is not new to the ToI. As Kaushik pointed out, six months ago they wrote of a Tollywood actress who was “recovering from a fatal accident”. Hope springs eternal etc.

Those examples require very keen eyesight to not miss. I've come across a similar typo in The Statesman which informed that someone was suffering from a disease called 'Sai Tika'. Maybe someone can provide links, I tried in vain to find it in the archives.

if you've heard of the Vijay Times, they ask us, in their health section, to deodorise ourselves or we will apparently emanate 'yuck' and unpleasant smells.

Talk about yuck. bleh.

New-born sons continue to be born, so let's hope we all recover from the fatal accident when the time comes :-)

sometimes i think they're a spy outfit for A Certain Apparant Idiot From Across The Seas. i mean, there's really no way anyone can be that stupid, unless on purpose.
