Hi... Here's a few links for some blogs and media sites which have critiqued Nazi-gate. You guys could run through some of these links if you wish to... The post after this one in all likelihood would be the last post on Nazi-gate, unless there's some significant development on that front... What would qualify as significant... Hmmm say if Telegraph files a story tomorrow claiming that one of its journos have actually trapped Johan Bach somewhere in the Sunderbans...
Until something else turns up guys, its back to the grind...

Penpricks, read the latest issue of Goan Observer(pg 9 - Stray Thoughts)? Rajan Narayan has interesting info of an Editor's Guild meet held last Friday 12th of July. It seems Arun Sinha's 'im.... RAGE' was in full flow at this meet(....). The topic, of course, was Penpricks.
Here are some of the excerpts.....
" Indeed, the principle item on the agenda for the meeting of Editor's Guild convened by Arun Sinha on Friday, was the Penpricks blog......
" Arun Sinha raved and ranted and was insistent that the Editor's Guild should file a CRIMINAL COMPLAINT against Penpricks blog to the Director General of Police".....
Please don't get deterred by(in Rajan Narayan's words) the Godfather General of Molestors threats.
Biharibabu, Arun Sinha, jo garajte hai woh baraste nahin.
