Four more India blogs

First, I should point to my friend Rajeev Muralidhar, who is a software engineer now working in Bangalore. But don't let the occupation fool you -- he's read more English lit than a lot of grad students I know. He has a helpful recent post on Edward Said's The Politics of Dispossession.

Then also Locana, who has written an interesting response to Amit Chaudhuri's piece in Outlook -- more on the Sanjay Subrahmaniam, Kuldip Nayer, Ashis Nandy debate on Indian secularism I have discussed earlier. (Reading this debate reminds me that sometimes you really do need social/political theory -- if only to find ways to move past the kinds of debates one can have about a complex issue in the newspaper. Nothing against Locana, but it seems the public debate is going in circles, especially over the issue of what is 'indigenous' to India, and what is imported/adapted).

Then Debonair, a DJ and grad student, I'm not sure exactly where. Melbourne? (I googled "Republika, Smith Street," and that seemed to be the most promising result.

Then, in case you've been hoping (as I have) that SACW would adopt the blog format, there is Communalism Watch. Then again, even Communalism Watch doesn't seem especially bloggy right now, as "Khaki Shorts" is simply pasting entire articles without commenting or interpreting them.

Communalism is a problem, with almost all countries, especially in Pakistan, where different Islamic sects keep killing each other in hundreds every month, in addition to stoning to death Christian men or kidnapping and raping hindu girls.

Like SACW, there is a blog dedicated to tracking communalism is Pakistan and within Islam.

Hi Amardeep I am a first time visitor to your blog and really found it quiet interesting. One of the comments stated by some anonymous regarding communalism in Pakistan is really great. Even I found some thing quiet fascinating labeled as Secularism Vs Minorityism check out for some critical taunts for the BJB which was labeled as being communal by some of the other parties.

Nice blog!

Why don’t you consider writing about some of the new “India 2.0” sites that are creating a little buzz as well?
