A unanimous candidate

Beth points us to this piece by Soumyadip on how Shillong has turned loony in the wake of the upcoming Indian Idol 3 mahayuddh. Bonus: childhood pics of Amit Paul.

Amit Paul is already an icon in Shillong. Almost everyone is talking about him all the time. From the barber to the taxi driver, the point of discussion is Amit. Giant screens have put all over the city so that people can watch 'their boy' in action. MLAs and MDCs (Member of District Council) are falling over one another to sponsor free PCOs from where the public can punch in their votes for Amit.
