#1 Wanted: A new section called TMK stuff & Members' Grumph

I feel that we should save normal, sane, rasikas, coming here for easy reviews, musical balderdash and general chit chat, from the Arnab Goswami equivalent of TMK stuff. We should separately cordon off all his writings, speeches, musical excesses, sociopolitical harangue, Brahmins angst, Perumal Murugan poetry and stuff.
That section should be called

TMK STUFF AND MEMBERS' GRUMPH.

What say?

You mean as opposed to, "Non TMK Stuff & Members' Grumph"? :)

Lets just call it Angst. Then I can post about whether it is an acronym or an abbreviation.

It must be miles away from rasikas.org.
We are here to enjoy music and share our experience, not to get into dissertation of meaningless waffle, or setting right the ills of society, something great men have struggled and given up their life for, something that is not remediable by talk, articles and awards.

I am more worried about people who accept his words as fact because it resonates with some of the ills they see in society. Unfortunately, quite a few young people fall in the category. Not to mention, hema in this forum itself.
