About this Blog
Hi! I’m Nita J. Kulkarni, a freelance journalist and writer, and live in India. I want my blog to be a place which people visit to look for balanced and reliable information on a variety of subjects, mostly India-centric. One of the aims of this blog is to present information in a clear format.
However, do remember that these write-ups are more like ‘columns’ and more often than not reflect my own worldview. Also, the pieces may may fall far short of expectations, but do bear with me. You are welcome to provide any additional information in the comment section.
The subjects covered will be everything pertaining to India, its people and business, there will also be other things…about life. Bits and pieces that every human being can relate to wherever they come from. On this blog I will also try to discuss issues concerning India in relation to the world. There will be reviews of movies and restaurants once in a while too. And I will discussing issues as well as my feelings…so all write-ups may not be researched pieces.
When I first started this blog, I added my (already) published articles, but not all have been categorised as I have just started to categorise, starting from September 06. In case you want me offer me a freelance assignment then I suggest you look at the archives of the first three months. After this time I more or less stopped uploading my published pieces as many were outdated, and started writing pieces exclusively for this blog. That is the what I do now. I try to take my own pictures, but when I can’t I do take pictures from newsites, but acknowledge their source and often link the site to my post.
If you wish to use any of my articles or photos for any purpose, it’s best that you drop me a note and ask. And obviously if it’s for commercial use, pay me. My email id is:
If you want to simply give a link to my post with a few lines from my post, please go ahead.
Some additional points:
1. Splogs are not blogs (weblogs) but simply sites without any original content…they survive by copying complete posts from other blogs. So in other words, a splog is a site with copied posts and spam links.
2. On my Blogroll there are links to some of the blogs that I read. Please note that I do not necessarily subscribe to their views.
3. I do not ‘exchange’ links so please do not ask me. The people on my blogroll are simply there because I like them and their blogs. There are other sites which I admire and find useful and I have added these, but most do not have me on their blogroll. Neither do I expect anyone to reciprocate.
4. I make no money whatsoever from my blog and at present intend to keep it that way.
