Celebrities, Blogs & Business

  • BigB takes to blogging joining the likes of Bipasha Basu, Nana Patekar, Ajay Devgan (who had their own respective blogs just weeks earlier to the release of their movie ‘Apaharan’).
  • BigB is a close friend of Anil Ambani
  • BigAdda is a social network backed by Anil Dhirubhai Ambani’s Reliance group
  • BigB launches his blog on BigAdda.
  • All fine till here. There is business, there is friendship and there is a good marketing gimmick for all involved here.

BigAdda (is) uses the WordPress blogging platform [Try blogs.bigadda.com/ab/wp-login.php] . And why is there no acknowledgment of them using the WordPress blogging platform? Edublogs.com does that, why doesn’t BA? WP is GPL; there’s no reason they have to but it would have been nice.

Rediscovering books

About a year since, my book reading habits reached an all time low. Vengeance struck and hence three books lie at the bottom of my mind ocean.

  • Sophie’s World – Comes highly recommended. Rediscovered the joy of philosophy and critical thinking. The matrix of books.
  • Motorcycle Diaries – Bit disappointed but well it was fine. Might have to start reading the later literary works of Che. Maybe I’m better off watching the movie.
  • Blink –  Eye-opening take on the inner workings of the gut. Almost done. The anecdotes and the stories are especially entertaining.
