Why I will miss Poonam Pandey on Facebook

Brunch staffer Asad Ali has a soft spot for the weird. He is (still) lamenting the demise of Poonam Pandey's Facebook account.

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/9/1409brpg4c.jpgFacebook, that cruel spoilsport of a social network! It has blocked Internet pin-up girl Poonam Pandey’s FB account following her vivid rendition of the Ice Bucket Challenge.
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/9/1409brpg4d.jpgThis is the diva who championed the cause of décolletage, incoherent English and non-celebrity status with such brilliance. The siren who could shoot testosterone into a dead cat.

The suave lady who held the hands (metaphorically) of many a prepubescent Indian student. This is definitely the biggest blow to her yet, one that has left her disappointed.

Hers are the only pop-ups (FB notifications, you pervs!) India didn’t mind. And for those who think she’s just another booty without brains, she’s also a writer.

Sample this caption she wrote for a selfie: "I really just want to be warm yellow light that pours over everyone I love. (sic)" How does one get drenched in Ms Pandey’s light now if FB has turned off the switch? For shame!
