Chintito

A ‘stir’ is born is a collection of columns written by one of The Daily Star’s most popular columnists who for about two decades has written under the pseudonym of Chintito. The columnist’s disguise has only served to intensify readers’ curiosity in his real identity. These columns, written between 1995 and 1997, have been culled mainly from the Star, The Daily Star’s weekly magazine, where he still writes his weekly column under the same pseudonym. His columns are short, witty and sarcastic reflections mostly on topical issues. As he reflects, “he does drop missiles of sarcasm encased in globules of wit, in almost every sentence he writes.” The effect he thus achieves is unmistakable: You begin to think, not necessarily like him but differently.
