Well when I did my PU in St.Josephs Arts and Science College – it was PS(Pradeep Sebastian) who waz our English teacher. He was the original guru – who introduced me to Roald Dahl and film appreciation. He was a film critic and wrote in the DH.
Then I moved up to BSc. and we had Arul Mani who was equally (if not more) talented ….who stepped into PS shoes (PS just left teaching in the year AM joined).
Arul Mani as I knew him was a really nice chap (who used to look pretty decent) ……… and was any day better than the snooty LM (Hemanth and Gopi would surely agree with me). Arul was a master quizzer and I went on to see him at many super and not so super quizes ….both as the master and and as the questioned. Later he went on to team up with another master quizzer – Avinash Mudaliar and the pair rocked.
I came across this real stupid critic of Arul Mani on the net ……….and Arul’s rebuttal on his blog. Since I knew Arul pretty well ……………..i think Bangalore torpedo really sucked.
Here it is:
and AM’s rebuttal:
