Gratuitous post

How many of you googled for the word in the title, huh :). Okay, all the non gre folks are excused. As for the others, start reading – the mention of this word will not puzzle you anymore. I have reached a blogger’s block actually. Nothing to write about. Well, let me rephrase that. Nothing worthwhile to write about – not that this space contains information that will be passed on to future generations or anything, but still. I do not completely blame myself though. IPL is done, have not met my family in a while, Liverpool is playing like a bunch of school girls, the French Open is a while away, no new Rakhi Sawant shows (now I genuinely miss her) and you do not really expect me to write about movies like Apartment, right?

So, I thought of having a small quiz sorta thing. Am posting a picture below. There is one extremely famous person in it. All you have to do is guess who the person is. It is kind of an IQ test.

Saying things like ‘aah, i know her/him but cannot remember her/his name’ or ‘he/she is from this ….. or I saw her/him on that….’ automatically lead to disqualification

If it took you between 0-5 seconds to answer
“Awesome. You epitomize true courage and patience.”

5-10 seconds and help from friends
“It is not too late. You can still get your life back on track. Just start spending more time watching the right kind of things”

>10 seconds
“Chi, doob maro kahi jaake” or
“Eww, go drown yourself somewhere”

So here’s the pic:

    Is it some TV show? You’ve categorized the post so.

  17. Trisha says:

    oooh i was kinda lost inside ur header picture for a while (so cool!) but i guess that is not the one u were talking about. Is that shahrukh khan in that weird sherlock holmes getup.

  18. Tolia says:

    Piece of cake: It’s A.C.P Pradyuman (from CID in Sony) played by Shivaji Satam.

    And yeah it took me around 4 seconds to do this, my initial guesses were Vijay Mallya on top, Sharad Pawar to the left (bald one) or Ram Gopal Verma in the hat, then saw the 4th one and i was like ahaaa ….. Pretty simple.

    @ Suri: Six point is Bijoy, not me.
