Blog-bandhu-on ka Budhwar Mela: The Wednesday Fair at Indian Blogosphere

Definitions of mela on the Web:

  • fair, festival
  • a religious fair.
  • SI Parent mode; 72 in all; See Mela chart
  • Apple. Widely used in pastry and desserts.
  • Any Sikh religious festival other than the birth or death of a Guru.

Here’s another: a weekly post-compilation activity on the Indian Blogosphere. Held every Wednesday.

I have found the weekly ‘Bharateeya Blog Melas’ to be very stimulating. They give Indian blogosphere a sense of community-blogging like nothing else does. Catch last week’s Mela at AnarCapLib and this week’s at Mad Man’s Web. Please nominate posts for the Indian blogosphere for the next week’s Mela at Selective Amnesia. (Why hasn’t he put up an announcement yet?)

Check out Mela FAQ’s, Yazad’s Mela musings, and most importantly, the Mela Schedule. Mall Road has been honoured with the opportunity to host a Mela on 26th May.

While googling I found that various bloggers and Mela hosts spell ‘Bharateeya’ differently. I realise it’s a controversial term and has apparently been used tongue-in-cheek. Why else would English language bloggers from India and the diaspora call it ‘Bharataeeya’ and ‘Mela’? But please, let us arrive at a consensus about the former’s spelling, so that someone googling on the Mela is not harassed.
