Until I work out how to put the Blog Roll on the side, I suggest you acquire an addiction - er, visit - these superb blogs. All of them are excellent writers.
Project WHY: Pure Inspiration. Donate to Heartfix and save a kid's life, help them empower the disadvantaged, change the world.
Locana: Politics, culture and commentary from Anand in Bombay.
Uma Mahadevan Dasgupta, also in Bombay.
Dilip D'Souza: On the ground in India. Just don't call him a libertarian.
Vikrum Sequeira, blogger par excellence.
Mall Road by Shivan Vij. Greater Delhi blogging.
India Uncut: by Amit Varma. Don't agree with all of his politics, but splendid writer and a most addictive collector of interesting tidbits.
The Other India: Initiative of a number of aforementioned bloggers, chronicling the realities of the "other" India.
Amardeep Singh. Literature, politics, commentary. Mmmm. Yes.
Sonia Faleiro, another excellent journalist who posts online.
Good News India, for when the world gets you down.
