Bade Bhaiyyaji ki vani, badi suhaani

My column in Sunday Mid-day about Amitabh Bacchan's desire to copyright/patent his voice.

There's no point asking how much money is enough - none of us know the answer to this question. But have we got the pitsiest public figures in the world or what?

Hi RF and thanks. I haven't got the lyrics but I haven't tried very hard. However you could try asking the folks at Vacha - I think it's on a cassette they brought out. They are in Santa Cruz (W) and the number is 26055523

oi. why are you not putting up columns?
parotechnics said…
Space Bar men, been drowning in work for the last few weeks with finishing film etc. and barely managing to write column so not ended up posting it (gotta blame Facebook where it is quick and dirty and so, easy to post). Now so many are backlogged that it seems ridiculous. But will put up in one go now!
loved your article, Paromita. the virginia joke is too good. :)
