    Photoshop? The shadow on the font and the exceedingly perfect strokes are making it difficult for me to buy this.

    /The shadow on the font/

    That was supposed to read – The lack of shadow on the font. Also, there is no textural variation.

    The biggest tell though is that this sort of outspoken citizen criticism isn’t very popular in India.

    This is unethical to publish such a fraudent matters in this blog.
    It gives a bad image to both the editor as well the owner of this blog.
    Dont do like this anymore with any country. It hurts the feelings of any citizens. Indeed it hurts me a lot.

    Well, Ilan, you can celebrate that your hero Rangasami is making a political comeback, in the wake of CM Vaithilingam’s ineffectiveness.

    Tell me: how can you be so staunch and humorless about a practical joke concerning a thoroughly immoral politician and yet be so indifferent to his blatant corruption, which has damaged your community in such profound ways?
