How the laptop has improved my quality of life (I think, I hope)

I’ve been doing some math.

Between May 1 and May 15 (both days inclusive) I made 12 posts on my blog. In the same number of days between May 16 and May 30, after I became laptop-enabled, the number of posts went up to 21, a whopping increase of 75 per cent.

(Whopp! Whoop!)


Between May 1 and May 15 Amit Varma made 103 posts on India Uncut, and the number for the subsequent 15-day period was 110. An increase of only 6.79 per cent.

(Whoop again!)

Expressed differently, between May 1-15 the number of my blog posts was 11.65 per cent that of Amit’s; between May 16-30 it rose to a dangerous 19.09 per cent.

I’m getting there, dude!

Now I’m off to do the word counts on each post…


  1. Hahaha. I can't believe you counted! Ho ho. I haven't laughed so much in ages. You're a giant.

  2. Wont it be more apt for Mr Jabberwock to do a quality assessment of this ludicrous comparison ?

  3. oops ! I posted the previous comment without putting my name.

  4. So now you're back to demonstrating that you DO know ratios and proportions and that you were not sleeping in Mrs Sharma's class after all!!

  5. Aren't laptops totally cool?

    Laptop and Starbucks have a direct correlation to the number of posts on your blog and an inverse correlation to the number of comments on the same posts.

  6. Don't care about the quantity, just keep up the quality, mate! Oh, and the horniness!

  7. :-D. This smart and this chichora, the pair of you, Amit and Jai. What fun.

  8. I second Aman on this. Next you'll start counting articles in newspapers, what? And then, maybe even the Slimes...:D

  9. What an unfair world this! Not a word of appreciation for the pigeon wireless, which you are now using on your laptop. Poor pigeon, come back to me ..come (Kabootar Aa, Aa Aaa..)

    Btw, sheetal : Can you clarify, who's smart and who's the chi-chora here ;)

  10. So when's the word count result expected?!

  11. Maybe after the quality check the Whoop will spontaenously turn into oops !

  12. Hi,Just a quick request. Since you link to my blog, could you change the URL to rather than Thanks a ton!

  13. Thanks for the comments, all.
    Amit: as expected, my site hits went through the roof the moment you put up the SOS link to my site - so we know who the real giant is!
    Aman: I shy away from quality assessments, they make me look bad.
    Sheetal: thanks, I kind of like the idea of being a chichora.
    Buchu: done. Was going to anyway, but thanks for the reminder.
