Changes are afoot at IEB. No, we’re not going to do a volte-face and join the gonzo lefties… Instead, we’re kibitzing ways and means to improve IEB’s layout & design, to be executed by the inimitable Madhu Menon, full-time chef and restaurateur and part-time tech guru. What would you, dear readers, suggest with regards to [...]
Amit Varma is nominated for the Bastiat prize in journalism The funny, brilliant and eclectically prolific Amit Varma is on the final short-list for the Bastiat prize. Regular readers of IEB won’t be surprised, I’m sure. And if you aren’t a regular reader, isn’t it time you became one? You can’t afford to miss all [...]
We wish all our readers a happy Independence Day. IEB was launched formally two years ago this day, and we’ve come some ways since. A few changes to the list of contributors but our focus hasn’t — we remain, then and always, a forum to discuss issues facing the Indian economy. The readership has grown [...]
Actually the headline’s a bit of a misnomer — it’s just Arjun Swarup and me, the only two of the IEB crew in the DC metro area. However, if you’re in the DC metro area, we’d love to have you join us! Venue: Bombay Palace Date & time: 22 July 2007, 1 pm
A number of people were kind enough to express interest in writing for IEB, post our bleg. We are adding three new guest bloggers: Shefaly Yogendra, Dweep Chanana and Pragmatic Earth (who will remain incognito, given the nature of his job). All three have diverse interests, which should make for some fun blog posts.
The Indian Economy Blog is looking for new contributors IEB has become the most popular blog on Indian economic issues in the short time it’s been around, and our posts manage to find their way to all sorts of interesting places. Not bad for an all-volunteer effort, even if we say so ourselves. Currently, we’re [...]
Please welcome two more contributors to IEB — Nanubhai Desai, who’s already got a marvelous post on the US – India nuclear deal, and Gautam Bastian, who returns to the blogosphere after a hiatus. We recruited him right away.
This article speaks for (many of) us In the height of summer-holiday season, bloggers face the inevitable question: to blog on break or put the blog on a break? Fearing a decline in readership, some writers opt not to take vacations. Others keep posting while on location, to the chagrin of their families. Those brave [...]
Regular readers of this blog might be interested in a feature that was recently carried in Brunch, a Hindustan Times supplement, that focussed on NRIs who have returned to India to try and make a difference. IEB contributor Atanu Dey is one of them, and the section on him speaks of the Rural Infrastructure and [...]
We’ve been under spam attack. Think we’ve fixed that (hopefully) and should be back shortly.
Uber-blogger Amit Varma’s India Uncut is Indiblog of the year. India Uncut came in numero uno by a wide margin, which doesn’t surprise us. Or anyone who’s been reading desi blogs (the Blogistan). If you haven’t read Amit’s blog yet, now’s a good time to start. Don’t just take our word for it. Vox populi… [...]
Whenever I surf the desi TV channels (which isn’t too often, given my lack of interest in TV time), there’s always a filmi-awards show on. Talk about self-adulation… The blogistan seems to be free from this awards hyper-inflation….so far. Thanfully. The only ones I know of are the Indibloggies. Don’t know much about them, but [...]
