Recently, someone called Krishna commented on my piece about BPAC in an insightful way. Comment below
(“…Liked your ego bashing undertone. At the same time citations like “I was here because Ms.X, Rock Star invited me” and “my husband was here because Mr.Y, Super Star invited him” rankled… “)
My response to the comment below within parenthesis
(“I thought about that, Krishna. The thing is that Nisha Millet is a normal Bangalorean; and so is Stanley Pinto. The Mohandas Pai was name-dropping, I guess. But the thing is that– wierdly– people only remember this sort of thing. Why is that?”)
To write about celebrities inviting you to a place and then talk about not being egotistical is disingenuous. I get that. But after years of getting comments, I remain fascinated that people comment on these “trivial” personal details. I would have written this long article about something; and they will remember the wierd, irrelevant personal stuff I say.
Why is that?
