    • A unique feature called “India Buzz” which allows you to view the top 3 events happening across the major metros in the country
    • The portal is also available on mobile at m.Buzzintown.com, so you can plan your evening on the go!
    .
    Buzzintown also offers an exclusive online comedy show “Jay Hind!” which has Sumeet Raghavan of Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai as the host.

Wonderful blog. Keep it up. And hope you post more of Faiz. I see last two are in 2007. so probably you may think of posting few more now. Cheers!
