SET Max’s World Cup Telecast – We got quoted

3 May

Last evening PCube posted a comment saying that the BB article about the Ads on Set Max during the world cup made it to Indiatimes. Here is the link. The article also mentions several comments on the post and names, Mohan, Anand (at the GreatUnknown), and Ramesh.

This morning, the same article was carried on Deccan Herald as well (online and print editions).

So someone DID tell Set Max that their timing suckedย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Early morning I get a call from Srik asking for Vijay’s number. He said he wanted to congratulate this person since DH mentioned about his blogpost (SETMAX – Ad wala)…
    I didn’t have it, I was thinking after that.. Do you think its easy to have somebody like vijay’s phone number now ?

    Apart from Leg pulling part, Congrat Vijay…

    Congrats Vijay!! I’m still not able to get into my blog. I didn’t have time to figure it out. Hopefully I’ll try this weekend. This really sucks because my older son is turning 13 soon and I had a great post in my mind about that. Anyways let me see what I can do. Its the end of the semester and its been crazy.
    Venna, Thanks for always visiting my blog. I’m replying to your comment on Vijay’s blog, because like I said, I’m not able to get into my own blog and reply to comments or post there. Looks like I have to do some dep research into it. I will be arriving in B’lore on June 2nd. Hope to see you all there!!

  19. Ayesha May 3, 2007 at 4:15 pm #

    Great work guys! Nothing gives me as much joy as seeing fellow bloggers in the limelight. Vijay take a bow.
    I got here thru Balaji’s site… super blog!

    as someone who misses your blog and adventures, i have a suggestion – until you get your password back, you can be a guest blogger here (or at rk’s – your pick!). later, you can move back your whole kit and kaboodle back to your own blog :-).

    – s.b.

    oops! i forgot to say congratulations to vijay – now he and veena are celebrities on par, and we have equal opportunity to pull his legs too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    also, i would put vijay ahead by a hair’s width on a photofinish, as he got all of us commentators also as honourable mentionees (micro celebrity status for us).

    – s.b.

  22. travelsaga May 4, 2007 at 12:11 am #


    That’s so sweet:-) Thank you so much for your support. I’d love to be a guest blogger here or at RK’s if that’s okay with either of them:-)

    @Srik, Shruthi, Mohan(KingRooster), Pranesh,Adi, Neela: Thanks all.

    @Cheiro: Thanks much for taking the time to comment.

    @Ayesha: Thanks for the comment… and the compliment

    @SB: I was wondering where you were… Its a good idea to have TS guest blog here

    @Travelsaga: I will set up a login for you so you can post independantly here… will mail you details

    you are welcome – the pleasure will be for all your readers (not just me) :-).

    mohan of king rooster fame:

    we need more escapades from you too. i am sure you have been on more trips than those you have blogged about.


    well, first it was the happenings at my alma mater that kept me quiet for a couple of days or so. then i learned that some of my comments were causing unease. as i did not want to sully my (anonymous ๐Ÿ™‚ name, i thought i might as well lie low for some time. but unfortunately, i cannot lie low for too long!

    anyway, if you want 911*100 visits to your blog, you just need to write a nice article denouncing richard gere and praising timid maidservant housewives who are subservient to their husbands. half of blogdom will visit to heap anathema on your head! throw in your opinion on abortion and the iraq war (wherever you land on either issue), and you might have to purchase your own blogdomain! [remember i had asked a question along these lines to d.s. a few months ago?]

    fyi, i took obligatory (i had better throw that word in, before anyone thinks otherwise!) sexual harrassment classes (an oxymoron) twice in the last couple of years or so, and did miserably on both the pre-class pop quizzes (though the questions were identical in both cases). i doubt i will fare much better if i were to take a class on feminism!

    @Prashanth: Thank You

    @Sanal: Thanks… as I said before 5 minutes of “fame” ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. I never got to watch it on TV..

    @TS: Username and Password already sent to you..

    @Veena: Actually I never know it was on TV until people commented here…

    SB: I would rather stick to my usual topics and readers.. dont want BB to be a battleground ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi all,

    I appreciate this site a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ I got to know from Deccan Herald.
    The world cup telecast of setmax sucked !!
    It was horrible to see two Morons Mandira and Charu speak about cricket !
    Commentating Legends like Tony Greg were interrupted and made like fool by these Idiots.
    Their timing of the Ads showed how stupid and idiotis they are.
    Mandira wears such a pathetic dress that is very obscene.

    Cricket was a total disaster on setmax and it will be !
