A random variable with 'Satyabhama' as its value

Ramki has a great post about a random variable called 'engineering_college_in_Chennai'. When it gets the value 'Satyabhama' (note: it's not Sathyabama), its properties could be weird, indeed.

    Read your post on the same topic. Also managed to catch a few other blogs who have posted on this topic of late.

    This phenomenon is more shocking than I imagined when I posted the article. 'Pareshaan' has a very angry take on the same. Poor guy went through the torture. Guy's posted a comment on my post that describes his angst. He's also posted an article on his site on the same. (

    I think you may be interested in going through his comments & post for a few shocking relevations.

    Hi Ramki,

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, I did read the comments from Pareshaan, and the experiences he recounts are quite horrible. It's important to bring out this sort of fascist attitudes in what are meant to be places that shape tomorrow's citizens and leaders. And, I am glad your post, and your commenters have contributed to this effort.

    I am sorry that I missed placing the actual link to your post. I have corrected the post now.
