I am a Tam-brahm. Why wasn’t I asked to write a column?

I guess the column thing is what they think is appropriate for their publication. Like, they should at least know how and what you write.
Hawkeye: Hmm…that’s news to me. Why though?
apparently iyengars are banned there
Tushar: My review is here
Dude, what book did you write about there?
Link is there for that?
He did. Not anymore. Not sure why. Perhaps because there were large scale changes in the team at IE.
Nilu used to write a column there, didn’t he? Does he still write?
One review does not a column make.
More such ? Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!
I don’t mind more books, that you know. But that kind is not book. It is dry hay down your throat.
Oi, you HAVE written for the Sunday Express. Remember that book that deeply enriched your life? 😛 And they’re supposed to send more such your way. Ask and ye shall receive. Hahahaha.
Most people writing for TNIE - the Saturday and Sunday papers – are Tam brams. Tams, bare minimum. They have the token north-Indian who comes and disappears.
Yeah. Most editorial staff are Bongs.
Wait, all Tambrams are writing columns in the New Indian Express?
Maybe it has something to do with their editorial staff – they’re all Bengali, at least, the ones that contacted me to write for them.
