LK Advani has a blog...

LK Advani has a blog. Amitabh Bachchan has a blog. It is no big deal for both AB and LKA, but both of them are towering icons in their own space (of course there are many other stars who blog) and very very busy and it is nice to know what they actually think beyond the spin masters. In both these places, do take a moment to read the comments. Unlike the junk that is spewed on many websites, both these websites have decent commentators. Much of it is plain and simple adulation, but it is heartening to see their connect. I am impressed by a few of Amitabhs posts - and the few posts Advani has made are pretty good too.

It is good to see (some) politicians trying to make an attempt to "connect" with the people. I mean, "middle class" people. Middle class does not mean the amount they earn, it really means their own mindset on who they are. Again, it is a good attempt by someone of Advanis statures to connect to these people - who are notorious for not voting and hence ignored by the 2 rupee rice and free colour TV type politicians.

For stars, it is a way to connect, but it is heartening to see a politician of the level of LKA writing a blog. Imagine, how it would be if your local MP/MLA had a blog, a site where he or she detailed the funds they collected, the projects they finished...

Mr. Advani is folowing Obamas Foot steps. He should do some thing more innovative.
