Palo Alto, CA: In a truly original and maverick gimmick, the still popular amateur-anthro blog Stuff Desis Like (SDL) refused to mark its first anniversary with any sort of noticeable activity.
Speculation is rife that a lack of originality, rather than marketing/PR creativity is the main motivation behind this latest stunt. Scientists actually believe that this non-celebration might very well be the effects of caffeine in the chai that desis love to drink at all times.
However, if certain secret sources are to be believed, this is indeed a move of sheer genius,worth its weight in gold. The busy brown bloggers have been unavailable for comments on the matter, but this may be due to a host of reasons including the ongoing tax season, india’s tour of new zealand, the falling India rupee or perhaps the unmissable opportunities thrown out by this great recession we find ourselves in.
Desis all over the world are awaiting the outcome of this non-celebration eagerly. Some enthusiatic desis we spoke to, expect a guest post by none other than SRK ; who has purportedly opposed to the pictures used in one of the entries. Others however, have checked their levels of optimism after this agonizingly extended delay in marking the anniversary event in any way.
The never growing , eighty-nine member strong Facebook fan community of the blog seems to have truly caught-on with the spirit of this non-celebration by refusing to take part in discussions or inviting others to be a part of the community, preferring instead to share posts from the blog as wall posts. Other social networks, even though desi favorites, remain dormant with blatant inactivity.
