    Very nice. Took me back to some old sportstar mags that I used to read as a kid. What does a dreamflower look like? Is there even such a flower? 🙂The lengths one goes to appear lighter skinned in India :).

    <>Bharath<> I too wonder. Pond’s Dreamflower has been a favourite with Indians (female and male) since its launch in 1956. The love for the lighter skin is the great Indian passion. Some of my male friends used Fair & Lovely, now they even got a masculine fairness cream Fair & Handsome.<> Dwaipayan<> Yeah, me too.<> BVN<> I will. Thanks for the visit.

    <>BVN<> I look for them at all places. Especially the second hand bookstores.<>O Anonymous Reader<> You can find all the gyan < HREF="http://bloggerhacks.blogspot.com/2004/09/metempsychosis-comments-hack-103.html" REL="nofollow">here<><>Featherbone (aka Baruk)<> I think I have one (not very sure) Will look for it.

    Hey…Thank you for that link, but it says:<>So, I sat down and wrote my own little JavaScript Blogger template hack to extend the Blogger comment functionality. Now there is a commenting form right on the comments page.<>I do not want a commenting form right on the comments page, but a section on the side where it says ‘Recent Comments’, and displays the recent comments made, like you had on here…?“The love for the lighter skin is the great Indian passion. ” – so true. It was once a passion in Britain too, in the Elizabethan times, if I remember any of my history from high school! The paintings of the high class people were all painted as having very bright skin… I don’t know why, personally I think a tan is as beautiful as you can get. But whatever, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder… 😉Thank you.

    <>o anonymous reader<> Sorry for the incorrect link. I hope < HREF="http://bloggerhacks.blogspot.com/2004/09/farrago-recent-comments-hack-103.html" REL="nofollow">this<> is the right one.

    Yes, that is the one… thank you very much! Much appreciated…– o anonymous reader
