@mighty_boosher @lokallobaat @DilliBelle @ConfuseusSay Anyone joining me for the Sufi night at Purana Qila 6:30pm tomorrow?
The 2011 Delhi International Arts Festival starts today. Sufi night at Purana Qila 6:30pm tomorrow. Free entry. Who’s interested? #openvite
@rashmiswamy Haha, thank you very much!
@pricelessjunk Aw, shucks. Keep some snacks handy up on your floor too then.

@Fine_Whining Ah yes, suspected you were referring to the budget airlines. Speaking of gujjus, you should watch ‘The Loins of Punjab’.
@pricelessjunk :) So did you end up eating something or not? I remember the days when I couldn’t bring myself to have a meal at those hours.
@pricelessjunk Arrey no, you should also find something to satisfy that hunger. Make a meal of it if necessary!
@pricelessjunk I just finished a plate of rajma chawal…
@BBlessy Oh, nevermind. Should’ve made my way through the timeline before asking. :)
“Chariots of Fire”, “Lap Dance”, that bad eh Times of India?
@BBlessy Joining us for the comedy night at Jukebox Café, Nehru Place?
@DilliBelle @mighty_boosher @lokallobaat Also paging @BBlessy. Welcome back to Delhi.
@mighty_boosher Free ride to Nehru Place, sahi! :P @lokallobaat @DilliBelle

@pricelessjunk Those trips don’t really count, do they? It’s the same case with Calcutta for me. It teases me every time I visit.
@pricelessjunk Right? By the way, you should travel to Delhi sometime. There’s so much to unravel here.

@nimitnshah Nice work man! But strange choice with the URLs, especially the home page on nimitnshah dot com @souvikdg
@sonix15 What took you so long?
@lokallobaat @souvikdg @aroradush I’m late, so hope you all had a nice Diwali with lots of good food and more sweets than you could eat. :)

Set in Myriad Pro, of course.
Half expected the camera and ‘Bio’ to point to your photoblog and your about page.

I have to say this: Twitter’s new inline tweet expansion is awesome. So long fixed (ugh) sidebar, you will not be missed.
@rasagy Excellent stuff! And @gonsalves_r, say hello to Rasagy, an ex-schoolmate and another Exunite.

There’s something about the simplicity of rural food served on pattals (dried leafs) that makes me forgive the stench & dirt.

What pisses me is plagiarism. @rs2802
@gonsalves_r Nah, I’m not holding my breath. Just losing a bit of respect for a few.
@immortalmechano But hey, hope you’re enjoying your new chapter!
@gonsalves_r Multiple cases that have recently come to light.
@immortalmechano They certainly need a lesson. In fact, I think a big part of the fault lies with the culture prevalent at colleges here.
If copy off the web then you should be the first to know how easy it is to locate the original source. Think of your shame if nothing else.
Saddened by plagiarism & disregard for authorship by ‘new-age’ creative ‘professionals’ in India.
All this talk of ethics, morals—for what?
@rakeshrach Thanks Rakesh. Stepped back and changed direction yesterday. Sharper focus, more constrains, looming deadline.
@_karan Thanks Karan.
@xAbhishek Good decision.
@xAbhishek That is both wonderful and sad. Oh man…
@DilliBelle Thanks! It’s the least we could do.

@GnrlMxms Difficult. 1800 at best if I try to squeeze and start early tomorrow, but 1900 is most realistic. @souvikdg @xAbhishek
@GnrlMxms 12 noon? I was under the impression that this was an evening meet. I’ll only be free around 7. @souvikdg @xAbhishek
@gonsalves_r Things have improved quite a bit since that post. The biggest hiccup in getting our LLP off the ground was the bank account.
@xAbhishek ‘Batman: Under the Red Hood’ was awesome! Thanks a lot for bring it to my attention.
@xAbhishek Comic Sans on the menu is maaf at those prices :P Killer name too! Dragon’s Maharani then? @ap00rv @GnrlMxms @kitallis @souvikdg

@souvikdg Well not personally, no. But say you were to name a kid today, would you not have domain name availability as a prerequisite?
@souvikdg You say “soon will come” only because you’re a while away from having kids. Otherwise we’re already there!

So the capital walla M.A.S is (finally?) on Twitter. Who knew? @proustmetro
@SlainPorcelain I know, I know, been through your portfolio. :)
Btw, we’re actually looking for a graphic designer to collaborate with.
Not the “Shoot this bunny to win an iPad” types I hope.
@SlainPorcelain I wish ugly ads were restricted to work time. But no, they follow you everywhere.
@DilliBelle That’s my default state yo!
I love how the majority of the worst ads on a webpage are pre-emptively removed by virtue of them using Flash, and me blocking Flash.
@vrinda_m Doubt @souvikdg will make it. He’s presenting at this meet-up in Noida tomorrow and is unsure about his plans at 7. @lokallobaat
