He Really Doesn't Think of Toohey

The lengths to which newspaper editors in India go to, just to fill up their pages, are hilarious. Take this article about Sanjaya Malakar in DNA for instance. The writer, Suresh Nair, quotes the famous dialogue from The Fountainhead, when Ellsworth Toohey asks Howard Roark "What do you think of me?" and Roark replies "I don't think of you".

Suresh Nair goes one step ahead of Howard Roark. He doesn't think of Ellsworth Toohey so intensely, that he changes his name to Ellison Toohey.
