So you thought the big-chested Mallika Sherawat or the flat-chested Aishwarya Rai were the most lusted after Bollywood actresses by those drooling wastrels plonked in front of their monitors.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Our UK gal Katrina Kaif is the hottest lady for Indian Internet users.
Google in its 2008 Zeitgeist report for India released today.
And what the f*** is the Zeitgeist report?
In Google’s own words:
The Zeitgeist offers a unique perspective on the year’s major events and hottest trends based on searches conducted by users in India….Taken together, we believe that all these lists define the true Zeitgeist or the “spirit of the times.
Katrina Kaif is the Top Bollywood Celebrity, ahead of Miss World Aishwarya ‘green-eyes’ Rai in the Google Zeitgeist 2008 ranking.
You know what, Katrina Kaif is also the only Bollywood star to figure in the Top 10 Popular search terms (she’s No-10 with No-1 being Orkut) of the 2008 Zeitgeist report.
By the way, Katrina Kaif and Namitha are the only actresses to appear in the Top 10 Mobile Searches (just checking, do you think when Namitha appears on the small mobile screens users can see anything other than her heaving tatas).
Even in the fastest rising category, Katrina Kaif is the highest ranked Bollywood star.
Like most Bollywood stars, Katrina Kaif is also a pretty mediocre actress (yes, the emphasis here is on pretty) although she’s shown some slight improvement in the recent mega-disaster Yuvvraaj. But lack of acting talent is hardly an issue in Bollywood since most of our stars wouldn’t recognize acting if it smacked them on the face.
Interestingly inÂ the How To category, Indians don’t seem to be obsessed with increasing the length of their lingams or the size of their mammes. The Top Five (in that order) in this category were 1. how to reduce weight 2. how to kiss 3. how to earn money 4. how to get pregnant and 5. how to learn English.
With all the nouveau liberated men and women in India, we thought how to avoid getting pregnant would be a hot search phrase. But looks like our kids know all about the birds and bees.

Why would anyone search for “youtube”.. instead of searching on youtube.
yeah, the “pregnant” search is quite surprising.. are the gals trying to trap the guys?
You write: Why would anyone search for “youtube”.. instead of searching on youtube.
You underestimate the stupidity of many members of the homo sapiens species.
For some time SearchIndia.com comprised only a directory and you’d be surprised at the number of people who used to arrive there by searching for searchindia.com on google or yahoo.
There are even people who search for indiablogs.searchindia.com (we can see the search terms in our stats file). No kidding.
Why would anyone want to look at a horseface all day everyday. Sorry, but Katrina ain’t no hottie. I’d do Megan fox if I swang that way though. lol.

We don’t think she’s any great shakes either.
But if Google is right, it seems a lot of Indians, for whatever reason, find this Kat hot.
Indian Railways.. ha ha ha ha … thats a good one.. 🙂 Lalu Prasad must feel vindicated
Indian Railways and IRCTC!!! kewl !!! the online reservation of Indian Railways is indeed a BIG hit!!! while working in Bangalore/Chennai/Pune, we would wait for the booking to open. The booking opens usually 2 months in advance at 8:00am. The tickets would be over in a day or two.All holidays were planned at least 2 months in advance…. esp. if there was a public holiday coming on thursday/friday/monday/tuesday….. This was a great way to avoid all the queues at the railway stations.esp for the IT people whose offices would be in some inaccessible corner of the city.
The lively commotion on the platforms of Indian railway stations both in North India and South India) is something we miss….chaiya…kapi..sudana kapi.
Train stations in Europe & the U.S. are sanitized, disinfected boring versions. We think Russian/Chinese railway stations should be interesting going by what little we saw in the movie Transsiberian.
Please. Train stations in the U.S, sanitized & disinfected ? I find them to be so much dirtier and stinkier than Indian ones. And so are the trains. Atleast you can have the windows open in India. And the indian train feeling + wind + smell of rust is something else.
1. Compared to the peeing & crapping we used to see on Indian railway station platforms back in the old days, U.S. stations are clean models. But like everything else in this country, the train system too is deteriorating because Congress is starving Amtrak of funds and lack of investment in railway infrastructure.
2. In our view, the train system must be highly subsidized keeping in mind larger goals like reducing pollution, cutting oil consumption, affordable public transportation et al. But the U.S. is mostly in bed with the auto & airline industries – both highly mismanaged entities.
3. We’ve found the best trains in Europe – faster and nicer.
You saw all that ‘cos you probably traveled through Andhra & TN & elsewhere. That doesn’t happen in Kerala.
Whenever i travel by train from Cochin to Hyd,
the second it crosses into the TN border, all of that starts.
Haven’t been on Amtrak.
I ride the L, here in Chicago and its really not much different from how it’s shown to be in Batman Begins.
railway stations are very well maintained now (security excluded)…..most of the profits earned by the railway have been invested to upgrade trains and stations…major stations even have air conditioned restaurants,nestcafe coffee shops and tourism promotion counters…..you would be in for a surprise if you visited india now….
Yesterday Beni (a reader) was complaining that stations in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh were still bad.

Someone told Indian Railways offers an Indrail pass for NRIs/Foreigners. One of these days, we’re going to make a Bharat Darshan by train.
Exhausted after SRK’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
Working on review. 🙁
