Apart from the expected categories, Corporate Oscars will be awarded to some interesting ones such as 'Best use of Richard Clayderman or Yanni music”. “Best Gratuitous Power Point Special Effect”, and “Best Blurry JPEG Logo in a Film or Presentation”.
World-famous corporate film doyen, voice-over legend P.C.Ramakrishna will receive the first lifetime achievement award. “He is the Mel Blanc of corporate films. The Jose Carreras of Powerpoint. The Vader of voice-overs.”, gushed J.S.Iyer, the chairman of the jury. “This award is a recognition of PCR's stupendous achievement of making thousands of different corporate films sound exactly the same!”
In related news, an unnamed source is said to have spotted PCR on the ECR giving CPR to his VCR. More details on CNN.
Editor's note : This is the first post in a small experiment that is actually a sort of return to bosey's roots, if you will. Smaller, 'snippet' form pieces that will free me up to explore a far wider range of topics, more trivial stuff, 'local' news and things like that. Of late, every post has been a 'major headliner', and I'd like to return to some of the lighter, byte sized pieces as well. I will also continue to post longer articles when I feel like the idea is worthwhile. In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy these snippets (and, as always, feel free to comment, suggest, criticize). Oh - and these will not feature S.U.Saravanakumar. He can only make time for the biggies.
