Send them nominations! Blog Mela - Sticky post!

The Bharateeya Blog mela will be hosted here, at interim thoughts..., next week. Send those nominations in full force. Due to some confusion the nomination (Oct 22) call is being published late! Sorry for that.

The rules are as usual!

1) Posts must have some connection to India, however tenuous.

2) Please nominate only those posts dated between 20 and 27 October. And please avoid, so far as possible, nominating posts that have already appeared on Desipundit.

3) You can nominate posts by commenting here!

4) Barring unforeseen circs, the mela should be up here on the afternoon of 29th October.

Update: This post is sticky no more!

Hi Neelakantan,

I've one on "caste" kinda tenous here
http://nitibhan.typepad.com/perspective/2005/10/the_family_of_m.html

and I'm writing one on the etymology of sanskrit names (personal to my family) today

Also, that one is 17th Oct, so it falls outside your purview. I'll have one up today :)

thanks for hosting this,

huh! Am confused a little because last I checked the Mela schedule, it was my turn to put up the Mela this week :-)

However, I just realized that the Mela is running a week late so I guess I will just have to modify the post inviting nominations.

This blog contains some invaluable tips for the layman, on the care of the heart. This is based distilled wisdom from years of interacting with the medical fraternity. Nothing like a Blog Mela to disseminate the knowledge.
