Our Blog's Landmark Day & A Few Thoughts

Today, our blog has recorded a landmark number of visits by our readers -796 on the previous day (see the hit counter on the left). Whether it is a transcient phenomenon, one doesn't know. But there is no doubt that this is a moment, I think, all of us would be proud of. The credit undoubtedly goes to Vikram, Arun and others who had the foresight in 2005 to think of this medium as the most convenient and useful tool to exchange ideas, and record our views. Over the last two years, it has emerged as the best inter-disciplinary blog on Indian affairs, not just restricted to legal issues, with all its jargon. It is a collective effort to explore the legal and related dimensions of contemporary issues in a reader-friendly manner. No wonder, many non-legal general blogs have acknowledged our contributions during the past few months. As we celebrate this occasion, we immensely thank our readers who have chosen to visit this blog again and again, looking for that extra value addition to public discourse, which is lacking in the mainstream media. That is also a big challenge to all of us, to make the blog much more active than what it has been so far, keeping its dignity and focus intact.

Venkatesh,

You are kind and generous in your words. But the real praise for sustaining and keeping this blog active for the past two years goes to Arun and you as well as colleagues like Dilip and Shamnad. I do hope we can continue to expand and improve the blog with user feedback and comments.
