Desicritics is live

Desicritics.org is now live. When asked for an introductory post, I scrambled to find something suitable to write about, but realized I was not going to make it at all. But then I chanced upon what is probably one of the earliest "bloggable" materials that I had written. It is probably even my first effort, but I seem to remember a round-up of the VB series (all that i can remember is that one BC Lara won the man of the series) that I wrote. Can't find that particular one anywhere.

So anyways, I put it up on the site, though it does not exactly go with the composition of the community and the its aims. The editors were kind enough to ignore this aspect and post it as it is. Anyways, this first post is up here now. And I am cross-posting here (at least a small excerpt) too.

Coming soon... Desicritics.org, a new community aspiring to be a leading source of online news and opinion with a South Asian focus. I was invited to contribute and I ardently hope that I can meet expectations with a post every now and then. I am still deciding upon the nature of my contribution, but it does promise to be a challenge that I hope to be match up to, adequately .

Anti, congrats but just curious about the title. What are they going to be critical about and why the negativity by name itself to begin with? It's like saying Subbudu=Sangeetha Critic but sometimes perceptions are hard and tend to stick, adhunaale dhaan kaettaen :-)

great! kudos :)

anantha said...

Balaji: Thanks. Like I said, the jury has not even convened ;)

Thennavan: Desicritics is an offshoot of http://blogcritics.org . And the word "constructive" is hidden somewhere and intangibly linked to this attempt.
