Virtual Coffee Mornings - Contest 4


A more general quiz will follow. But for the moment, test your knowledge of desi blogs.

1. Which blogger is affectionately referred to as 'The King'?

2. Whose tagline is 'Cooking with consciousness'?

3. Identify this lady blogger.

4. Whose blog was awarded the Best Topical Indiblog at the Indibloggies 2005?

5. What is Nilu's alter ego called?

6. Who are the founders of Desipundit?

7. Who refers to her children as the Brat and the Bean?

8. What major change happened in one of India's top blogs on the 15th of February 2007?

9. What is common to mumbaigirl, shoefiend, 30in2005 and Neha Vishwanathan?

10. Identify the blogger whose journey went - Tamirabharani to Thames via Cooum.

Post your answers in the comment box. And don't forget to drop those coins in your coffee mug.

To participate, all you need to do is place a coffee mug (preferably clean) next to your computer. And once you have entered a contest, drop some small change into it. At the end of the week, collect the coins (hopefully some notes too) and send them to LAFTI in India.

Here are their bank details.
Name of the Bank : Federal Bank
Address : Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, India
Swift Code : FDRL – INBB – IBD
To the Credit of Krishnammal Jagannathan
AccountNumber : SB 5559

This is part of a series of contests I 'm hosting to raise funds for LAFTI. The organisation will help women buy seeds so they may cultivate their lands within the next 10 days.

Che! Neha beat me to it... I do know no 10 though: Dubukku!

meera sriram said...

Even vehement scratching of the scalp on my head is'nt helping.

So, just...

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle.

Neha, your answer to 9 cant be right! I live in London and blog too, not half as good as a lot of people but that doesn't mean I should be left out! Not fair. Anyway, i reckon your answer to 9 is wrong

Ammani, I've been meaning to do a post. What a great idea, my coffee/tea cup has been set up

WA said...

I know I know I know the RIGHT answer for no.9 - crazy chicks

amit varma said...

I think I know the answer to No. 8. Pah!

Sanjeev said...

I know the answer to #8 too. And half the answer to #6. Clearly I need to spend more time online. (NOT! just need to maybe change the profile of sites I surf when online.)

Blog on you crazy diamonds...you strangers, you friends (to-be), you legends, you ravers, you seer of visions, you writers,...and blog!

Can one send checks for LAFTI? OR will it take too long to encash and not meet the 10 day deadline. Wiring money (and paying a % of the donation to the bank) seems an inefficient way, no? However, it IS perhaps the quicker way. Just wondering...
