Archived Title Image No. 10

Some readers found this title image a little distasteful and asked me to take it off. Keeping their sensibilities in mind I'm putting a new one up. Anyway it's been there for almost a month-and-a-half and the replacement with was long overdue. As Sandeepa said I remain the boss of this blog and things around here happen according to my whims and fancies, but once in a while I should heed to readers' concerns (or at least pretend to).

The movie is Madhubala, of course not based on the beauty of the yesteryears (I was and am an adorer) but on the Preeti Jain-Madhur Bhandarkar episode. It was running in one of Connaught Place's (New Delhi) oldest theatres, the landmark Regal, usually described as seedy, in-kempt and exhibiting 'A' rated films. Haven't yet been inside the theatre, but the posters usually attract sufficient attention.

Photographed October 1, 2006.

The description of the present title image will be made available on its retirement.

San Yes, that is one of the purposes. But unfortunately I cannot be as regular as the magazines.

Dwaipayan Not for long. The images will keep changing.

Adi Thanks for the chai. I know that I rule here, but little pretensions of a democratic system does not harm and also minimises the chances of George Bush alleging the presence of any WMDs on this blog.

Gaizabonts To you too!

Pallavi I'll update my blogroll. And a very happy new year to you too.
