And I’m a persnickety old fogey because these things bother me.
TimesNow, of course, is beyond the pale. I mean, what the hell is a "kawr-tAHjh" (to rhyme with "corsage") in a funeral procession? Which is worse, ignorance or pretentiousness? Pity. From what I hear, Arnab is an educated man. But then he’s only a ‘P’ away from …

I have some sympathy for the “Siddharth Suryanarayan” fans, but seriously, the hordes of Carol Gracias seekers have reduced me to a state where “bangla panu golpo” (or even “jap sex”) seems wholesome and “hydroscele” (ainh?!) a refreshing change! But then, I read Outlook and they have seen fit to print pictures of both the “malfunctions”. At some level, we are what we hate. Cripes!
