Rambodoc is a perineal word twister. And spells badly, too. Both within and away from his workplace, he is at peace with ideas, thoughts and words, which he loves to experiment with. Philosophically a votary for freedom and laissez-faire capitalism, he is philologically a Pun-jabi, physiologically a tranquolatile mix of testosterone, endorphins and encephalins, and pathologically isย a potential case for solitary confinement, with intermittent electric shocks to obscure corners of the cerebral cortex. Based in Kolkata, India, he loves writing, reading, cooking and eating, all the while traveling around, if possible.
If you wish to email him, try (It is perplexing to see people using normal text when writing their mail addresses).

  1. Came here to find out more about you and also to tell yu that I am adding you to my blogroll.
    But there’s something funny. You see, I shifted my blogroll to a page, and after that I have added about two new links but these links have not shown up on those people’s blog reactions (Technorati). I found one out by chance and then checked the other one. Why is this happening do you know? Don’t links on pages show up at all?
    If this is the case, I guess I will have to move my blogroll again!

  2. Nita,
    Warm welcome, and thank you!
    I am afraid I am virtually a WordPress virgin, and can’t really understand this. Maybe the others would be able to give you an idea. You mean that if you blogroll someone, it should reflect in his/her blog?
    I didn’t know that!

  3. Rambodoc,

    Google ranks pages on the net on a scale of from one to ten. All else being equal, the higher up the scale your page is ranked by Google, the higher you show up in Google search results.

    One thing that helps to determine how high ranking your page is, is how many high ranking pages link to it. Nita’s homepage, where her links are, has a Google page rank of 5, which is very good. Comparatively speaking, there aren’t all that many sites on the net with ranks of 5 or above. So, since she links to you from a page that Google ranks as a 5, Rambodoc, when Google gets around to ranking your homepage, her link will help make your homepage rank high.

    It often takes Google about 90 days to rank a brand new net page. Right now, you don’t have a page rank, but within three months, you will probably have one.

    By the way, I stuck a link to your homepage on my blog — along with a necessary warning, of course, that your blog is a very dangerous place for small children and domestic animals. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Paul,
    I missed the warning, and so would, hopefully, most of those small animals and kids for whom this blog should be a playground! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I was waiting for you to shift to WordPress before blogrolling you, but I guess you aren’t in a hurry, so here I go, and thanks for showing such sublime taste! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. There’s another thing – thats Technorati ranking. This is important if the blog ever goes commercial, and well, its good to have a good technorati ranking anyway as they rank blogs. The ranking depends on how many people link to you, how fast and who links to you. when i put up the blogroll on a page, the couple of people I added later did not show up the link on their technorati ranking.
    anyway, I didn’t want that to happen so i have shifted my blogroll back to my front page.
    if i find a solution to this then I shall move it back to a page.

  6. How do you do all this? The Technorati thing that you speak of?

  7. You can sign up for Technorati here:

    Way off to the right is a little button that says “join”

  8. It’s interesting to know that Technorati doesn’t count links from a blog page to increase the rating. I find it quite surprising. Should investigate further…

  9. Thank you for the link, Rambodoc! I must agree you taste is as sublime as mine!

  10. I’m getting just a little concerned. You are starting to talk about yourself in the third person. Now you are keeping it together (metaphorically speaking that is)?

  11. By the way “powerkis” is the wordpress equivalent of mondaymorningpower.

  12. Powerkis,
    You can relax for the time being. Normally he blogs while perched on the edge of the ledge outside his sixth floor apartment, peering over intermittently to see how far below the ground is. It is the monsoon season here, and so he is safely indoors. Loonies don’t like to get wet, it seems!
    Sort of a trait form of hydrophobia!

  13. Nice site ๐Ÿ™‚ It has a unique identity which is how a blog should be. Too many blogs out there that look just like the next one; and worse are the one post wonders!

    Good luck with your blogging. Hope you continue to post interesting stuff.

  14. Thanks, Semantic! Hope you keep coming!!

  15. You’ve got a very funny blog going. Am adding you on to my Reader.

    Thank you, Lakshmi!

  17. Thanks Doc for adding me to your blogroll. Honored!

  18. oh oh oh… came here to know you better but with ur confusing ‘phi..’ words i would rather read your posts only ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Something I wanted to do for ages:

    Hi Rambodoc! Love your blog.

  20. Hey just posting to let you know that I enjoyed your posts and am adding you to my blogroll ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. nso7:
    Thanks, dude!

  22. Vivek Khadpekar


    //Something I wanted to do for ages:..//

    After that kind of opener, the the reader expects is something at least mildly sensational if not delightfully naughty. For a start, try removing “r blog.” ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Vivek Khadpekar

    Correction: “…WHAT the reader expects”.

  24. Vivek:
    ” For a start, try removing โ€œr blog.โ€//

  25. I’m confused.. r blog? You expected something mildly sensational if not delightfully naughty?

    Are you, Vivek, dissappointed? I should have known, Rambodoc did mention in July that this blog is read by people with dirty minds!

  26. Purnima (in class teacher voice),
    Vivek is actually the screen name for a famous actor who did that splendid gangsta rap ‘Aye Ganpat’. He hides his erudition in his altered screen name. Be nice!

  27. Oh dear, it took a while to sink in but I finally get it. Remove… r blog. I thought I was being accused of something far worse.

    Me.Not being nice to Vivek? Never!

    Not after what TMBWITW did to him.

  28. I still don’t get ‘remove r blog’ or your TMBW… code.

  29. love your blog
    love you – r blog

    TMBWITW – the most beautiful woman in the world.

    At your service! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Vivek Khadpekar

    Doc, Purnima:


  31. Vivek Khadpekar


    1. Take the expression “Love your blog”, used by Purnima.

    2. Remove from it the segment comprising the characters “r b l o g”.

    3. What’s left of the expression after this excision makes it at least spicy enough to warrant the opening line about “Something I wanted to do for ages:”


    //Rambodoc did mention in July that this blog is read by people with dirty minds//

    I am a relatively recent an arrival here, so I must have missed that caveat. But what, pray, are you doing here? ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Vivek Khadpekar

    Doc, Purnima:

    I am all at sea! Who is this identity thief who has sullied my fair name? What “splendid gangsta rap”? “Aye Ganpat” sounds like a rap[ed] version of the traditional aarati that all good Maharashtrians and Mumbai gangland honchos perform on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.

    Psst! Purnima!!
    //Not after what TMBWITW did to him.//

    What exactly did she do? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. //I am a relatively recent an arrival here, so I must have missed that caveat. But what, pray, are you doing here?//

    I need help (I’m not actually saying this am I?) and where else whould I better be than in the hands of a doctor.

  34. Fabulous rambo! Learned,enjoyed,linked.INSPIRATIONAL as always.

  35. I’ve tagged you but the pingback hasn’t arrived.

  37. Lovely place you have here doc. ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Hey there,

    I found myself at Shefaly’s reading that interesting meme on brands, where I spotted the link to “Rambodoc.” Couldn’t for the life of me recall where I’d seen that name before until, well, now. I’d often seen you on my friend Jerry’s blog (Leitmotif) earlier.

    What a roundabout way to stumble onto you blog, wouldn’t you think? Reason enough add you to my reader, I reckon.

    Plus, I’m very flabbergasted by wordplay, so there:)


  39. Hey, Charl, welcome to this blog! Nice to see you here.

  40. I think people dont write @ in email address basically cuz to avoid spamming….spammers detect all email ids on a webpage n send spam. writing @ makes it hyperlinked to avoid it ppl do that..ofcourse some may do it out of style!

    P.S. Nice blog

  41. Reema,
    Thanks for this comment on my a bot page.

  42. Love your whacky writing style. Great!!! Adding you to my feed reader (I am pretty sure that you have figured what that is by now :-)).

  43. Hey, lifeofhues!
    I am so sorry I missed replying to you. Thank you for reading me!

  44. I have added you to my blogroll ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Hi, You have been awarded the Honest Blogger award by me ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. Amit:
    I did, thanks!

  47. ps this is a unique writeup for an about me page

  48. saaar, there’s a question for you on my site. I’m surprised it didnt send a ping here!

  49. Prax:
    Thanx, but I would have expected you to think that about this blog as a whole…
    I went to your site-ar.

  50. didnt i say ur one in a billion ???
    … The mere fact that i come back for more wacky witty posts of urs is is proof enough ….

  51. Of course, Prax. No one is as effusive and persistent as you are in complimenting me.
    Probably the fact that we are of the same age is in all likelihood related to it.

  52. I try to read (or say, for matter of speaking, read) your blog regularly and many things go above my head!!
    But I understand many things also. So your writing is not entirely wasted on me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  53. Very very nice blog. The Bleedership Summit in particular was mind blowing.

  54. Congrats on being the runner up at Best Satirical post at Avant Garde Bloggies Awards.

  55. Playing with the words in weird ways most of the time result in playing with the weirds in wired oye !

    Even punishment starts with a pun.

  56. Uh, um, Oye!

  57. Perineal word twister? Or perennial word twister? Sounds quite interesting. Whichever way, it ought to have something to do with the ‘perineum’ I guess…. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Also has something to do with this Rambo being a doc – if I’m not mistaken! His posts are scattered with med terms like caudally, my hydrocele patients, (See “Adonis Effect”)…

      Good fun with wordplay though, you have to admit!
