Sunday, 12 November 2006 05:30 Written by  Published in Indicast
Ganapati Bappa Morya! That's the mantra in India for the week. There is no festival which is celebrated with more pomp and vigour than the Ganesh Chaturti. People from all age groups participate in programmes to exhibit their talent on millions of different stages across the country. India is immune to blaring loudspeakers at 12:30 in the night during these 10 days!

Bal Thakrey is in the news again. Hang on. Don't have any pre conceived notions. This time, he is in the NEWS for the right reasons. The authorities at Shirdi may not have the last laugh after all! Listen to know more. Well, on a lighter note, we discuss a very interesting article that Fortune carries in its current issue. It says one in five will interrupt sex to take a phone call!!! And finally, Aditya tells us his experience of hosting Ganpati at his place and his plans for the visarjan

Episode Notes:

  • Lord Ganeshaya namaha!
  • "Gimme Gold", bark the authorities at Shirdi
  • "On my dead body!", roars Thakrey. The authorities at Shirdi balk! Nobody messes with the tiger!
  • Do you hang up your cell phone or hang on to it whilst having sex?
  • Indian Housewives can get entrepreneurial! Ofcourse, we are kidding!
