Review: The Original Me

Review: The Original Me

Graphics - Black is dramatic, alright, Ramo, but could you heighten the color contrast between the white letters and black background? Low contrast is a strain on the eyes. Your header's a knockout, is the good thing re your graphics.

Content - Essay type pieces starting with impressions of life in India up to the blogger's first few months as an office worker inthe US, laced with a gay's schoolgirlish fantasies about sundry movie star images, and some political and religious commentary thrown into the soup.

Otherwise, what's of some significance here are his feelings about bowing to his culture's marriage tradition (the parents get a matchmaker in India, don't they?) even if the opposite sex draws a blank on his emotions. Dutiful Ramo plays the devoted hubby in India, but starts feeling that he might get the chance to be himself in the more open society of the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Fate steps in with a declaration from his wife that she has no plans to leave her job in India and join him in the US, so let loose the cannons, boom boom boom! Will the first stop be a lingerie shop, Ramo?

Style - College sophomore essay from the Brit school system they have in India. Not altogether bad, can sound elegant or archaic depending on your mood. I ratha feel like some tea and scawnes, your lawdship?

Recommend - A color scheme that doesn't leave all the regions of my body squinting and straining. And some effort to remove two words from my mind - "pious geek".

Rating - 8.3

Oh, thanks for the review ladies! I wasn't expecting above 5. So thanks for your effort!

And no, no plans for any visit to lingerie shop. I am faithful to my wife and will stay so. :)
