Long-time reader Gowri has started off his very own word-coinage blog, a-la Wordmint. It’s called The Wizard of Words, and has some interesting additions to the language. A sampling :


Meaning: A plot to bring disrepute to a cricketer by claiming his use of suspicious bowling (or ‘chucking’)techniques.
Pronounciation: Chuck-raa-view-ha
Usage: I am just surprised how only Asian cricketers are targeted in these chuckravyuhas.

Sorry – this damn blogging tool isn’t working when I try to post anything more than a few lines. Hope to have it fixed in a few hours. To follow : Goodbye Bob. And why I should be burned in effigy.

Thanks for reading this blog. Back in a jiff.

Amit Varma’s worst fears are coming true.

With the advent of Abhiwarya, the mouth waters at other possibilities (for existing as well as fictitious couples). Here are a few :

Surya and Jyothika – Soothika (non-Tamil speakers, please excuse)

Asin and Vikram – Ashram

Vijay and Trisha – Visha

Anil and Tina Ambani – Antenna

Dhoni and Katrina Kaif – Dhoka

Cyrus Broacha and Celina Jaitley – Cycley

I.M.Vijayan and U.R.Ananthamurthy -V.R.Gay

Sushmita Sen and Cybill Sheppard – Sensible

Okay, I’m all out. Any more suggestions?

Late Additions :

Scarlet Johansson and Batman – Scatman

J-LO and TR – LOTR

Madhu Sapre and Dimple Kapadia – Sapadriya? (Another for the Tam-only crowd)

V.R.V.Singh and Ronnie Screwvala – V.R.Screwing
