Popular posts of the past three months and vacation time for me

September 13, 2009

Hullo everyone. I will be on vacation for the next 3-4 weeks. The blog will not be updated during this time. For a major part of my vacation I will not have access to the internet and therefore will not be able to read blogs, or answer comments on my own blog.  I am going to miss the blogging world, as it has become a kind of second life! I am specially going to miss all my virtual friends!

Here is a link to some posts just in case one of you drops in:

Here are some of my popular posts of the last three months:

Most commented on post: A salute to the Iranian people and Persesepolis book review – This post touches on the courage of the Iranian people and also talks about a book by Marjane Satrapi.
Most read post: The coming of age of Hinduism? This post is about how some people have broken some man-made traditions that have become a part and parcel of Hinduism.
My favourite post: Actually it’s the Persepolis one, so I will give my second favourite post here: What is Hindutva? I liked the post because I felt that despite so much being written on Hindutva, my post explained the concept in a different way.

Most commented on post: India’s democracy has its flaws but it is still a democracy – This post is about the research conducted by The Economic Intelligence Unit and which lists the world’s full, flawed and partial democracies and why they are so.
Most read post was also the one listed above, so here is the second most popular post in terms of page views: One man’s necessity is another’s luxury. This post is about the research conducted by the Pew Research Center on how American have changed their ideas about what luxuries and necessities are due to the recession. This post also talks about India and what we think are luxuries and necessities.
My favourite post this month was Arthakranti – a movement to make India prosperous. I loved the ideas of Arthakranti, even though at present they seem to be a pipe dream. I do not think all of their ideas are impossible to implement, not if the government has the will to take them up.

Most commented on post (guest post): Why the world needs a better looking glass. This was written by a guest blogger and it was about her unpleasant experiences during a holiday in Kerala.
The most read post was also the one one given above so here is the second most popular post in terms of page views: Misleading reports about Indians throwing their babies. This post is about how the media in the west often misrepresents India.
My favourite post this month was: Travails of an Indian movie goer. This is about how Indian cinema halls frisk patrons for food, something that was unheard of a few years ago. Something that is unusual in foreign countries. However just thought I would mention it, we went to a Fame theatre in InOrbit mall today and the security woman did not check my purse! This was a strange experience! I think if we patrons protest about stupid rules, they will go.

For the rest of my posts, you can just click on any category you want from the category cloud on the right sidebar. Or you can click on the Archives to see a list of my posts from the beginning to the end. See you in the second week of next month. Will try and post earlier but I don’t know how I will be able to manage my time. See you soon!

    Thanks all who have given me their good wishes. \
    Brian, my trip is not going to be that long. Its just that I have taken some days off before and after as there are some personal things to be taken care of, and some shopping to do. And after I return, there will be a work load that I will have to take care of before I can get back to my blog.
    And Soham, you are really sweet! 🙂

    How can you do this? you cannot shirk your responsibility to this country,you are a part of the essential services that the people of this country need. our lives are incomplete minus your blogs, you could have taken your laptop to Pondi and continued your work. I can understand that you need a holiday but to take a 3 to 4 weeks off is criminal, who gets this kind of holiday in these days of recession? I hope you have a nice time, I belive the liquor is great there.

    vijay, you cant be serious!! fyi, I am in switzerland now. 🙂 ¬ <nita
