"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?" Guy de Maupassant

Desi (Insta)Pundit

Desipundit is a neat collaborative blog that showcases the Best of the Indian Blogosphere. From their About Me page:

This blog is set up to be the one-stop shop for the best that Indian blogosphere has to offer. We have seen blogs rise to almost qualify as a potent voice in the Indian media. However, bloggers in India havenít got the kind of recognition (brickbats included) that their counterparts in America, Europe, or even Iran seem to have got.

India has a wide diaspora audience and participating bloggers too, but the voices are too scattered. Although there are some excellent writers out there, they are frustrated by lack of readers. Everyone claims to write for sheer joy of penning their thoughts but most do not admit that they get a kick when the number of their readers increases.

The folk running this are :

  • DesiPundit (politics, current affairs, society and culture, and others)
  • Ash (personal posts and travelogues)
  • Kaps (Business and Economics)
  • Vulturo (Technology, Internet, and Web-related stuff)
  • Vikram (Sports)

Great going Patrix and gang!
