run of the mill

In order for you to fully assimilate life’s teachings—the ones that are neatly encapsulated in one-liners so as to save you the toil of peeling off meaning of Rushdie-esque paragraphs—you must learn painful lessons first. And one of them is that you’re just run of the mill. Proof of that? If any vestiges of a maverick were hidden in you, the years gone by should’ve sucked them out for public perusal. But they haven’t. So, there it stands. You’re run of the mill.

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘the spirit of the times’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

"vestiges of maverick" gone unnoticed - The make of a "run-of-the-mill". I got that. Sorry to say though, that, I respect Rushdie, but yes, I know what you mean by Rushdie-sque. But that is just his charm. Without digressing, sorry to say that(again), my friend, you are no far from being rushdie-sque. For some reason, much as I like the "Rushdie-sque" books and writing, the simple, close to the plain daily life language writings win my heart, n all its life!

Priyanka: I didn't imply any disrespect towards Rushdie. I just wanted to convey my point in breif and realized that Rushdie can help me do so. If I had taken my name, no one would have got the point :-)
