dear all,

this is the blog we were speaking about (well, sagnik and trina, at any rate. i think...) so, since young (even by my standards, heh) unjustified insanity has put up a post already, i thought we might as well get some work done here.

since the blogmeet was where it all started, it'd be a good idea to post all your relevant posts here. trina? arnab? JAP? would you please please please do it?

(oh, damn! and blast. i didn't invite arnab. sheesh! me!)

right, then, JAP says, and i completely agree, that pujo posts everywhere is a brilliant idea. so, everybody who wrote anything about the pujos, please put it up here.

also, this isn't attempted racism (it's better to play safe, you never know) but will members please scout blogs and their own archives for their cal and bengali related posts? (g9's post on bongs spring immediately to mind...)

so, posts up ASAP, what?

and any changes to the blog name/template/settings? (i'm not over-fond of the name, so please suggest changes if you want to)

hmmm... can't decide now...

BTW, regarding the pujo posts... do we just link to the original posts, or do we copy/paste everything?

i love most names suggested, but...ektu bhebe dekho.

No teen admins??? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA????????

You're right about the Calcutta search bit though...

I would like to tender my candidacy as a contributor. Pretty Please?

Why are all the proposed names in Bengali? Calcutta is a cosmopolitan metropolis, and many races, religions, languages and marwaris flourish here. Perhaps the name should reflect this and be in English, or an equally nuetral language, like, say, Afrikaans.

Any thoughts?

At Saturday, October 22, 2005 10:05:00 AM, Blogger jaded said...

how about calcutta rules....err, ok no scrap, scrap.
but the google search thing is relevant, so maybe a cosmo name is in order.

and do we have to have the infernal word verific. thingey????pliss pliss let's not have it.

At Sunday, October 23, 2005 11:48:00 AM, Blogger Soumik said...

priyanka, amay invite korli naa? im awfully insulted [mad emoticon] ;)

as for names: i demand it shudnt be smthn so cliched like coffeehouse, rosogolla and stuff. and also we shud aim for search hits for kolkata, nt calcutta. kolkata as aname still hvnt got enuff currency outside kolkata.

Would it be unseemly to remind my esteemed fellow bloggers and Calcuttans of a certain long running theatrical revue debuting off-broadway and with sketches by Samuel Beckett and John Lennon which was entitled Oh!Calcutta!

The title might one add is from a pun on the French words "O quel cul t'as".....
and keeping in mind the over-excitable teenagers we have here I shall not translate.

ho hum..just a passing thought...

nono we must choose something original :)

Babelfish - Bare-behinds do not excite teenagers anymore. Especially not in French.

UI - DHUR KATUA roxxx!!!

jaded - thanks - i HATE the word verification thing. its really diff to get the words at times!

At Tuesday, October 25, 2005 4:03:00 AM, Blogger Shobhik said...

the word verification sucks. I prefer to manually delete spam from my blog.

Lets have a vote on whether the word verification should go.

At Wednesday, October 26, 2005 3:44:00 AM, Blogger Prerona said...

kanti, jaded - thanks - i REALLY hate that thing too. I vote for no word verification.
