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.

You have a very meme-friendly face Kian. And never mind the hashtag. It's a tad too harsh on you.
Do check back for more :P

Thanks for your comments. And good work ANH team, had a lot of fun browsing last night!

@6 - I didn't say I was "happy" with the hashtag per se, but I was thoroughly tickled and a little flattered too that we are capable of creating such controversy.

In any case, there are few things journalists enjoy (or should enjoy) more than criticism, being satirised and causing a reaction with what they write.

@7 - have you considered that I am too specimen for you to understand my sense of humour?

Cheers,
Kian

Number 6: Ya. I totally get the drive you get in this fame by sensationalism. Oh but wait, isn't that the issue with trial by media in the first place?
Anyway, good to know you achieved this journalistic fame because of NALSAR. Clearly your other posts, on non-nalsar subjects, are underrated.

Its ridiculous that there are people attacking Kian for his coverage. if anything else, LI could have been used as a platform to air the various sides to the story.
Or succinctly put - ANH Y you attack messenger?
A 140 page report and internal administrative squabbles in one of India's top 3/4 law school makes a good story. If it wasn't LI, it would have been someone else.

I dont think any Nalsarite is attacking Kian tbh. If you were fortunate (or unfortunate.. depending on how you look at it) to have been in NALSAR for five years, you would know that the students (most of them) there love and revel in controversy.

1. Satire is obviously lost on the people belonging to the lower-rung colleges.
2. NALSARites for reasons yet, unknown, are too lazy to 'explain' themselves. Since, well, the NALSARites, per se didn't 'do' anything.
They see no point in 'explaining' anything. The distinct difference between NALSAR and other law schools is that the administrative fallacies were reported on by a Committee (which was being acted on, except that the Chancellor recently changed) - other law schools have simply 'adjusted' to such problems.
3. We still think the joke's on someone else. We looooove controversy (inside or outside) the campus.

We aren't exactly attacking Kian, here. In case you have failed to notice most of this is rather caustic and poking fun at things close to our hearts or otherwise, e.g. The Chief Martial Law Administrator.
We have our ways of having fun. And yes we love a nice little controversy.
First rule of PR. Any PR is good PR.

@15 - whoa whoa whoa there! before you talk of what people from 'lower rung' colleges are doing, note that most of us are at most vaguely aware, at worst completely indifferent; the number of comments should speak for itself.

more importantly, your own 'rung' is suspect. i would not advise such hubris regarding 'rungs' or the lack thereof. glass houses, stones, etc.

SERIOUSLY GUYS. KIAN ISN'T EVEN RELEVANT IN THIS WHOLE SCENARIO. IF THE STUDENTS AT NALSAR HAD BEEN VIGILANT, KIAN WOULDN'T HAVE A STORY. YOU LET HIM HAVE A STORY. HE DOES WHAT HE DOES BEST - WRITE ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE NOT GOOD.

SO START UNDOING THE DAMAGE AND FIX NALSAR. KIAN WILL MOVE ON TO BETTER THINGS, YOU UNFORTUNATELY WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE NALSAR TAG ... AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT KIND OF COLLEGE THAT IS.

LET KIAN DO HIS JOB. INDIA ANYWAY HAS A REALLY BAD REPUTATION WHEN IT COMES TO STANDING UP FOR THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION. PLEASE DON'T MAKE IT ANY WORSE. WE ARE AFTER ALL LAWYERS AND ITS OUR JOB TO SUPPORT THE UNDERDOG AND NOT DEMONIZE IT.


YOU CAN GET ANGRY WITH WHAT KIAN OR SOME ANON COMMENTOR WRITES, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT ANGER IS ABOUT YOUR STUPIDITY. SO STOP CRYING ON THE INTERNET AND GET SOME WORK DONE.
