#Nalsargate latest: Problematise, Now Look Here, Scorpions & More!
There's this Facebook group for Nalsarites with the motto "Fighting controversy with ridiculosity since 1998". It's pretty cool.
So, I hear on the Webs that I have now apparently become a Nalsar meme, alongside Facebook pages for Veer 'Now Look Here' Singh, and Amita 'Let's Problematise' Dhanda (click the links for a few minutes of amusement - one is "a tribute to to one of the few good things about Nalsar", the other is a bit ruder and not reproducible in a family publication).
Anyway, one anonymous Nalsarite has immortalised me after Legally India's ongoing #Nalsargate story that revealed a somewhat damning/embarrasing report about the law school (I now have my very own hashtag too!).
Here's the first, referencing Legally India's RTI of the secret Nalsar report, as well as a commentary on Legally India's apparent similarity with a tabloid the world's most widely read English newspaper (29 Facebook likes and counting!)
I love the Nolan nod on the next one, as well as the awesome MS Paint skills of the author. And being the Dark Knight in Gotham's Shameerpet district is pretty cool, deserved or not.
Next, perhaps my favourite, because it so neatly picks up on Legally India's Hyderabadi scorpion biryani gag (which is delicious by the way).
I have to admit, I am somewhat flattered.
And despite initial appearances to the contrary, I have reconsidered my opinion: Nalsarites clearly do have a sense of humour.
And finally, just because they are so tasty with massala, here's another picture of a scorpion.

Update Sunday 12 February, 23:50
A new update from the friendly Nalsar Facebook underground. With Nalsar seeking nominations for a new vice chancellor (VC), I am now apparently second in line for students' Nalsar VC nomination with 9 votes. (Disappointingly some person/city-state called Sparta is still the clear front runner with 37 votes).
The good news, however, is that my campaign will soon gather momentum under the new hashtag #KianforVC, to which I have been upgraded by Nalsarites and which is sure to start trending on Twitter anytime now.
My shadowy campaign manager has also knocked together a first draft of the entirely original posters, which has been trialled on said underground FB page and will soon appear on billboards throughout Hyderabad.
