"It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Match'd with an ag├Ęd wife, I mete and dole Unequal laws unto a savage race, That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me."

Random citings

The wait is over! This week, a gaping Tamil populace found out the colour of actress Jyotika's wedding saree. Colours - with an 's' - to be precise, because there are 54600 of them - all in one saree! RmKV Silks has launched a set special edition silk sarees, which will most probably enter the Guinness book for having the most number of colours. Already a record holder for weaving the longest silk saree, RmKV will sell only 50 such sarees, each for Rs. 50000. They say that's a throwaway price because the cost of weaving each saree is said to be - catch your breath - Rs. 25 lakhs!

Mr. & Mrs. Idly Sambar

The Indian Express reports that weary travellers on the Chennai-Bangalore highway can now find refuge in the hospitality provided by Mr. & Mrs. Idly Sambar. That's the name of a new restaurant now serving people near Sriperumbudur. Though it has had humbled beginnings, its owners are planning to expand it in a big way. So don't be surprised if you find a plush and comfortable hotel on the highway in the years to come!

From the Guru

Tom Peters has posted quite a few interesting entries on his blog in the past week. I particularly enjoyed Congratulations, Phil, 2 + 2 = 25 = Death Penalty and Beating Wal*Mart is a lark!

Nah, my friend, don't lose heart yet. The reference was to a teaser ad which features Jyotika asking everyone, "Guess what the colour of my wedding saree will be."

So the good news is she is still single. Are you looking?
