CM Appreciation Society

Posted by sepoy on April 08, 2009 · 1 min read

Today marks the fifth year anniversary of this here blog. Here be the first post.

Thank you, gentle readers, for being here, for reading, for participating, for sending me links and articles, for being supportive, for sharing. Let the chapatis "flourish". Yeah? My puns are getting worse, as I age.


Qalandar | April 08, 2009

I've always meant to ask you (perhaps I already have, and have simply forgotten): as a chapati afficionado, have you read "The Seige of Krishnapur" by J.G. Farrell?

sepoy | April 08, 2009

No, man. It's been on the to-do for a while.

Happy Birthday CM! I feel so fortunate to read this blog, I've always wanted to learn more about Desi History but never had the opportunity to do so formally (well, a little bit here and there) because my folks thought I'd be poor! So I ended up in a more marketable profession and while I love it, this is the best hobby ever! Thanks so much Sepoy!

Congratulations on achieving this landmark! Quite a few of the blogs I used to read 3-4 years ago have fallen by the wayside so it is great to see one enduring! I think this is something to be really proud of, I couln't have kept going for this long! You will like the Siege of Krishnapur, make sure to check it out!

Keep the chapatis spinning!

Hey, congrats! Samip tells me that the 5th anniversary is "wood." Maybe you should incorporate that into the theme somehow.

neha | April 09, 2009

Marvelous. Your chapatis get rounder and better puffed with time.

Sonu | April 09, 2009

Many happy returns! Long time reader/lurker and it has only gotten better with time. Here's hoping for many more years of delicious chapatis to come :).
