For the the bloggers. It's so simple.

Who are we to decide if a particular topic is good or bad?

It’s a populist world after all. And let’s face it. Love him or hate him, a lot of us read Chetan Bhagat. His stories are simple to understand and more often than not, a story well told, without unnecessary fancy words or gobbledegook which most of us cannot comprehend in so called literary marvels. We all seek to hear simple stories. Why do we take everything to an intellectual level?

Salman Khan, Chetan Bhagat, Sidney Sheldon...and more...all the peas of the same populist pod. They are mass entertainers and they have their appeal.

We are clearly not a world filled with geniuses. Imagine if there was more than one Einstein. If it was, we’d be a world filled with pathetic, envious people trying to one-up each other. There are plenty of hard working people out there who want to discuss simple topics like
Tell me a ghost story or
Which was your first crush or etc etc (I'm sure u get the point)

Why do we need to discuss things which would alienate most bloggers or just cater to a niche audience? After all, this is a forum which was made for the bloggers by the bloggers. 

I’d say live and let live. After, who are we to decide what’s the better idea? Let the vote prevail.


  1. I totally agree with you, those fighting over ' Chetan Bhagat is Good or he is dead awful' simply seem to have a lot of time on their hands ...

    1. Yeah. I think so to. If they spent time and effort, writing their own book...aaah now that's not possible is it? We have no talent to write a book no matter how good or bad. Just about enough talent to undermine others and make smarmy remarks. ;)

  2. Nice take.. and true.. A shame that simple topics of discussion are disappearing and a person's worth is only considered as how upmarket topics are discussed.
