Humor

I write almost exclusively in what I think as my humorous style. Except for the posts under 'Philosophy' and specific sub-categories under 'Fiction' and 'Others' all other posts are unlikely to be bereft of humor. Posts under this category are specifically labeled 'Humor' only because they do not fit into any of the other categories.

                      1. I was looking for the blog that you wrote "Two Minutes" as Arjun wanted to read that again (mention of him was the reason for his interest). I could not find that in this list. Though I did get to search your blog and find that.

                        1. Hey Suresh,

                          My name is Sahil Bhagat, and I'm the Founder of Vebbler.com, a new personal social network launched in India. Here's a look at the Site promo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slWQdNZzNQI. Vebbler is now in 66 countries and 440+ cities, making it a great platform to connect with like-minded people in India and abroad.

                          We have recently launched a new Twitter-like feature on the Site called 'Interesting People To Follow' and are connecting with several bloggers in areas of fashion, literature, entertainment, photography, satire, sports, technology and causes promoting them and their content on Vebbler and enable them to connect with their Fans. The feature was launched 25 days ago and we have received an overwhelming response from 40+ bloggers across the country and we would love to have you on board too.

                          If this is something that interests you, we will create a promoted profile for you which will be promoted in the following ways:

                          Twitter-Style tab on the Web Application: The homepage of Vebbler will have a tab on the right side recommending users to follow you. Users who follow you will get all your public updates.

                          New User Suggestions: Every time a new user enters Vebbler, he/she will be directed to a middle page before the homepage where he/she will be given a suggestion to follow your profile. Whoever follows your profile will receive all your public updates.

                          Mobile: Vebbler’s mobile Site is also launching the ‘Interesting People to Follow’ feature in which follow suggestions will be displayed.

                          If you're interested, I'd be happy to connect with you. My number is +91-9820433731 or you can email me back.

                          Look forward to hearing from you.

                          Sahil.
