Two Minutes Older

Starting the first Saturday of 2010 (which is the 2nd), I have a new column in the Indian Express, in Zeitgeist.

It will be called Two Minutes Older and until I write it, it's hard to say what it will be about. I guess I will put it up every time it happens - which will be every fortnight.

The name? I didn't want to stress over it; I wanted it to be a quotation, like so much of this blog is. Therefore, since it calls up all these illustrious people, the name. I have since discovered that there's some Russian post-punk band by the same name and I'm not yet sure how I feel about it.

So that's the way I tip over from this year into the next one. I have to say, it's been better than the last one, which was murderously bad. So there's hope for the next one, no?

Yes, yes, happy new year to all of you as well. Be good*.

*and if you can't be good, name her after me.

Wow! Congrats; that's a great way to start the new year. Nothing like real readers to make you want to write better!

Good luck, good health good cheer. I wish you a happy New Year.

And wow, I so need to get my hands on that film project.

Cool. But you are writing for something that calls itself the Zeitgeist?

Oh and at this rate, I will definitely be named after you. Less to do with being bad, more to do with being lazy.

Congratulations on the column and a happy new year to you as well!

hari batti: thanks! my blog readers are no less real, you know. :-)

Krishnan: Thanks, and to you too.

Aishwarya: I wonder! What fun, no?

Dipali: Thanks!

Ratna: Thanks! And to yours.

Falsie: Thanks. And burn me a copy when you do.

spawn: It's the IE's Saturday supplement. I don't think it had a choice in the naming. And as for lazy choosing of names, you ask your monster to mail me for a list. I refuse to have my name stolen.

km: to you too and thanks!
