Where is Ramu kaka(SANDY SUDHA OIL COMMON PEEPUL BHOOKMARI) these days? Gone were the days years ago where he used to enlighten folks in the forum with his wisdom attained via selling apples in Himachal? Boy, IRI was different back then. I guess people will say the same in a few years about IRI today, coz evolution.
A few arguements, some fights, meeting people for the first time, meeting multiple times and remaining friends and basically having a face to what otherwise seem like just IP addresses these days. Just reminiscing the good old days :)

Hi VJ, thanks for calling my attention. Yeah, I have always been bemused, yet astonishingly, with these Ramu Kaka stories and +1 on reminiscing of those good old days, albeit acrimonious to some extent, but it was common knowledge that none had any harmful grudge, where debates spanned from train trivia to literature to personalities, meets, foods & fads, travelogues, PNRs, basic but effective user interface, lighter moments, anecdotes, and what not. Simply put, IRI, without any second opinion, was more COLORFUL with those plain themes then than the recent rainbowish look.
So, what's ailing (IMHO) the site? Lack of personalities/characters/fun (now don't pounce on me with a war cry, claiming, "who said RF'ing isn't fun?"), change of generation or people (or evolution as you said), drastic shift of focus from all and sundry to hardcore RF, revised format? I'm so dumbstruck that I don't have a clear answer. Maybe sometime someone will come up with a poll.
All I can say is I'm hoping against hope that that lost folk is back and the site duly gets on top again with the numero uno status that it held more than Roger Federer.
True that Mahesh. I for one have started increasing my participation to a slight extent. But what is still holding me back is that I am missing a lot of stalwarts who adorned the site in the past but are now conspicuous by their absence.
A welcome walk down memory lane Vijay. Indeed Ramu Kaka in his various avatars is sorely missed.
you haven't seen the new corp of FM's, who pounce upon anyone who doesn't behave like kids in convent school
colorful personalities in such an environment are as likely as developing intergalactic travel in this generation :P
that said, it still manages to be acrimonious.
Sounds music to my ears. I may also get more involved commensurate with the improvement in the overall quality of content and people.
Happy Birthday Inderjeet Bhaiya _/\_ 😊😊
