The results are in...

…and after years of self-doubt, I have my answer: I am a humanitarian after all!

Thanks to everyone who voted for Jabberwock, and congratulations to the other winners. Most of all, thanks to Debashish for devoting so much of his time to putting the Indibloggies together, clarifying the rules, organising repolls, compiling results, writing long posts etc etc. I would never have had the patience myself to do something like this, so appreciate it.


Back to regular posting now.

  2. Congratulations Jai! Now that you have won, you can conveniently forget any promises that you had made earlier, award yourself a 400 per cent raise, and take a vacation in Hang Kang (or whatever shopping mall oops I mean city catches your fancy).

  3. Lost my faith in elections when George W Bush came riding into town; but this win restores my belief in the power of the people. Congratulations, Jai, you humanities dude, you.

  4. What, no speeches thanking NRI uncles, atrabilious aunties, aloo methi just-about-burnt, or even Hitch? C'mon, at least promise to change the world through social service, you humanitarian person.

    Very glad. Voted for you, so at least thank me, dude.

  7. I view life as a journey of initiation for death. A person lives, suffers, dies. All the rest is grace. And love is grace. Writing is grace.
