Are Rajinikanth’s Methods Patentable?
Patentability of process inventions has always been interesting and controversial. We have earlier reported that the methods of performing yoga, massaging, walking on water and so on are patentable.

- Tossing the cigarette in the air at a ninety-degree angle;
- Lighting a match stick; and
- Throwing the match at an angle of impact on the tip of the cigarette.
