Hello world!

Hi! I am an Internet professional. I eat, breathe and live Internet. The medium fascinates me much like a filmmaker is fascinated by his art. While I have always wanted to blog about my take on the Indian Internet space, my desire has been outweighed by several GBs of inertia.

At a recent event at IIM Kozhikode, a student asked me – "Do you blog?" And so I promised myself to start one. So here I am, a couple of days later, writing my first blog post. This blog shall primarily deal with the goings-on of the Indian Internet industry though I do tend to philander. In any case, I'd refrain from any BS here as I value your Internet time.

And before you go elsewhere, here's a video worth watching a 1000 times.



Update (Nov 20, 2007): In one of the comments, Blaisy has provided a video that you must watch as a follow-up to the one above. Posting the same here.



Update (Nov 22, 2007): Oops! YouTube happens to have taken off the video. Guys, you've missed out on cuploads of joy.

Update (Nov 26, 2007): YouTube video posted from an alternate source. Thanks Asher.

Hey Nimish, the wonderbra video is now available on
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3j8sCBYqLo
and FYI, the original cadbury commercial in various form (there are remixes) has been viewed over 5 million times on you tube.
I wonder how much such a mass exposure would it have cost them on TV???
