It's 'Thalappakatti' biryani, not 'Thalappakattu'


Chennai: The long drawn litigation between two hoteliers contesting use of brand names 'Thalappakattu' and 'Thalapakatti' for selling biryani came to an end on Tuesdsay with both parties signing a joint memo of compromise before the Madras High Court.
City-based Chennai Rawther 'Thalapakattu Biriyani' agreed not to use the name 'Thalappakkattu,' in their restaurants and hotels and has given an undertaking to remove the name advertised in various parts of Chennai and Madurai.
Dindigul-based biriyani seller 'Thalappakatti' had filed a civil suit and other petitions in Trademark Registry. Since the Madras High Court had granted a stay on the usage 'Thalappakkattu,' which sounded similar to 'Thalappakatti,' the brand name being used by M/s Thalappakkatti Naidu Ananda Vilas Biriyani Hotel of Dindigul, the latter filed a contempt plea in high court against the Chennai-based chain of restaurants.
The petition was filed before a division bench of justices R Banumathi and R Subbiah which recored the compromise memo between the Dindigul-based hotelier and Thalapakattu Biriyani and Fast Food, now operating under "Chennai Rawther Thalapakattu Biriyani".
The city-based hotelier also agreed to remove the above name from the name boards, sign boards, bills, advertisements within a period of 60 days from the date on which the memo was recorded. On their part, the Dindigul-based hotelier agreed to withdraw the original civil suit. Recording the compromise memo, the division bench closed the contempt petition.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
