It’s been quite a while since Allirajan, a senior editor of Hindu, had mailed me asking about weblogs on Tamil Cinema. A blog reader Ratnavel had pointed him to this blog and he had a list of questions on cinema blogs. I wrote back to him with my responses and also pointed to other cinema based weblogs like Teakada and Mdeii Anand. Allirajan came back after few weeks to know more about Blogger meet. I replied back with a commentary of a recent blogger meet and few pictures taken during the meet.
This happened more than 6 months back and I had completely forgotten about it. Today the column about cinema weblogs, The World of Reel Time Weblogs, is on The Hindu‘s Metro Plus Coimbatore section and it features this blog. Ofcourse there are a few spell mistakes[THEY mis-spelled Teakada as Taekada] and a mistake that there was a cinema bloggers meet that I had organised. I did organise blogger meet but it was a general one and not specific to cinema blogs.
As said rightly, though it’s my personal space and I write on what I like to discuss, it’s the readers who make/break a blog post with their comments. The recent post on Kamal Hassan did have the least of my participation and it was an amazing gathering of thoughts. No, No it’s isn’t a cliched filmfare speech where our hero says, “Thanks to all fans who supported me thoroughout”. The damn our hero would actually bother.
Forget all that it’s cool to have your blog featuring on Hindu, I say.
